Romans 3:9-20 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

The Whole World Guilty before God

What then? Are we any better off?[a] Not at all! For we have already charged that both Jews and Gentiles[b] are all under sin,[c] 10 as it is written:

There is no one righteous, not even one.
11 There is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
12 All have turned away;
all alike have become worthless.
There is no one who does what is good,
not even one.[d]
13 Their throat is an open grave;
they deceive with their tongues.[e]
Vipers’ venom is under their lips.[f]
14 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.[g]
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 ruin and wretchedness are in their paths,
17 and the path of peace they have not known.[h]
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.[i]

19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it speaks to those who are subject to the law,[j] so that every mouth may be shut and the whole world may become subject to God’s judgment.[k] 20 For no one will be justified[l] in his sight by the works of the law, because the knowledge of sin comes through the law.
