045:003:001
What advantage then hath the Jew?
or what profit is there of circumcision?


045:003:002
Much every way:
chiefly,
because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.


045:003:003
For what if some did not believe?
shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?


045:003:004
God forbid:
yea,
let God be true,
but every man a liar;
as it is written,
That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings,
and mightest overcome when thou art judged.


045:003:005
But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God,
what shall we say?
Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance?
(I speak as a man)


045:003:006
God forbid:
for then how shall God judge the world?


045:003:007
For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory;
why yet am I also judged as a sinner?


045:003:008
And not rather,
(as we be slanderously reported,
and as some affirm that we say,)
Let us do evil,
that good may come?
whose damnation is just.


045:003:009
What then?
are we better than they?
No,
in no wise:
for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles,
that they are all under sin;


045:003:010
As it is written,
There is none righteous,
no,
not one:


045:003:011
There is none that understandeth,
there is none that seeketh after God.


045:003:012
They are all gone out of the way,
they are together become unprofitable;
there is none that doeth good,
no,
not one.


045:003:013
Their throat is an open sepulchre;
with their tongues they have used deceit;
the poison of asps is under their lips:


045:003:014
Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:


045:003:015
Their feet are swift to shed blood:


045:003:016
Destruction and misery are in their ways:


045:003:017
And the way of peace have they not known:


045:003:018
There is no fear of God before their eyes.


045:003:019
Now we know that what things soever the law saith,
it saith to them who are under the law:
that every mouth may be stopped,
and all the world may become guilty before God.


045:003:020
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight:
for by the law is the knowledge of sin.


045:003:021
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested,
being witnessed by the law and the prophets;


045:003:022
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:
for there is no difference:


045:003:023
For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God;


045:003:024
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:


045:003:025
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood,
to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God;


045:003:026
To declare,
I say,
at this time his righteousness:
that he might be just,
and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.


045:003:027
Where is boasting then?
It is excluded.
By what law?
of works?
Nay:
but by the law of faith.


045:003:028
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.


045:003:029
Is he the God of the Jews only?
is he not also of the Gentiles?
Yes,
of the Gentiles also:


045:003:030
Seeing it is one God,
which shall justify the circumcision by faith,
and uncircumcision through faith.


045:003:031
Do we then make void the law through faith?
God forbid:
yea,
we establish the law.
