Romans 3:9-19

Context
The Condemnation of the World

3:9 What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin, 3:10 just as it is written:

There is no one righteous, not even one,

3:11 there is no one who understands,

there is no one who seeks God.

3:12 All have turned away,

together they have become worthless;

there is no one who shows kindness, not even one. 1 

3:13Their throats are open graves, 2 

they deceive with their tongues,

the poison of asps is under their lips. 3 

3:14Their mouths are 4  full of cursing and bitterness. 5 

3:15Their feet are swift to shed blood,

3:16 ruin and misery are in their paths,

3:17 and the way of peace they have not known. 6 

3:18There is no fear of God before their eyes. 7 

3:19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under 8  the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world may be held accountable to God.
