Romans 3:19-20 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

19 And we know [Forsooth we know], that whatever things the law speaketh, it speaketh to them that be in the law, that each mouth be stopped, and each world be made subject to God.

20 For of the works of the law each flesh shall not be justified before him; for by the law there is knowing of sin [for by the law is knowing of sin].

Romans 3:19-20 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

19 Yea and we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that all mouths may be stopped, and all the world be subdued to God, 20 because no flesh can be justified in the sight of God by the deeds of the law. For by the law comes the knowledge of sin.

Romans 3:19-20 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

19 [a]Now we know that whatsoever the [b]law saith, it saith it to them which are under the law, that [c]every mouth may be stopped, and all the world be [d]subject to the judgment of God.

20 Therefore by the [e]works of the Law shall no [f]flesh be [g]justified in his [h]sight: for by the Law cometh the knowledge of sin.


  1. Romans 3:19 He proveth that this grievous accusation which is uttered by David and Isaiah, doth properly concern the Jews.
  2. Romans 3:19 The law of Moses.
  3. Romans 3:19 A conclusion of all the former disputation, from verse 8 of the first Chapter. Therefore saith the Apostle, No man can hope to be justified by any Law, whether it be that general Law, or the particular Law of Moses, and therefore to be saved: seeing it appeareth (as we have already proved) by comparing the Law and man’s life together, that all men are sinners, and therefore worthy of condemnation in the sight of God.
  4. Romans 3:19 Be found guilty before God.
  5. Romans 3:20 By that that the Law can by us be performed.
  6. Romans 3:20 Flesh is here taken for man, as in many other places, and furthermore hath here a greater force: for it is put to show the contrariety betwixt God and man: as if you would say, Man who is nothing else but a piece of flesh defiled with sin, and God who is most pure and most perfect in himself.
  7. Romans 3:20 Absolved before the judgment seat of God.
  8. Romans 3:20 A secret setting of the righteousness which is before men, be they never so just, against the justice which can stand before God: now there is no righteousness can stand before God, but the righteousness of Christ only.
