Romans 3:4

Context
3:4 Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being 1  shown up as a liar, 2  just as it is written: “so that you will be justified 3  in your words and will prevail when you are judged.” 4 

Romans 3:19

Context

3:19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under 5  the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world may be held accountable to God.

1 tn Grk “every man”; but ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo") is used in a generic sense here to stress humanity rather than masculinity.

2 tn Grk “Let God be true, and every man a liar.” The words “proven” and “shown up” are supplied in the translation to clarify the meaning.

3 tn Grk “might be justified,” a subjunctive verb, but in this type of clause it carries the same sense as the future indicative verb in the latter part. “Will” is more idiomatic in contemporary English.

4 tn Or “prevail when you judge.” A quotation from Ps 51:4.

5 tn Grk “in,” “in connection with.”
