3 For what if some did not believe? shall their incredulity make the faithfulness of God of no effect?
4 God forbid: yea, let God be acknowledged true, though every man be a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, and mightest overcome, when thou judgest.
5 "But if our unrighteousness confirm the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is not God unrighteous, who inflicteth his wrath?" (I speak as a man) God forbid:
7 "But, say you, if the truth of God hath abounded unto his glory through my falshood, why yet am I also judged as a sinner?
8 and why may we not do evil that good may come?"---as we are injuriously charged, and as some affirm that we say; whose condemnation is just.
9 "What then are we the better?" Not at all, in point of justification; for we have before proved that both Jews and Gentiles are all under sin: as it is written,
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are become unprofitable, there is none that practiseth goodness, no not one.
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre: with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
19 it saith to those under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world obnoxious to the justice of God.
20 Wherefore by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified before Him: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now, without the law, righteousness before God is manifested, being attested by the law and the prophets;
22 and this righteousness of God is by faith in Jesus Christ unto all and upon all believers; for there is no difference;
25 whom God hath appointed to be a propitiation, through faith in his blood, for a demonstration of his righteousness, in the remission of past sins, according to the forbearance of God;
26 for a demonstration, I say, of his righteousness at this time: that He might be just, and the justifier of him, that believeth in Jesus.
27 Where then is boasting? it is excluded: by what law? of works? no: but by the law of faith.
30 surely of the Gentiles also: seeing it is one God who will justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision also through faith.
