Romans 3 (ASV)

[1] What advantage then hath the Jew? or what is the profit of circumcision?
[2] Much every way: first of all, that they were instrusted with the oracles of God.
[3] For what if some were without faith? shall their want of faith make of none effect the faithfulness of God?
[4] God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment.
[5] But if our righteousness commendeth the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who visiteth with wrath? (I speak after the manner of men.)
[6] God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?
[7] But if the truth of God through my lie abounded unto his glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner?
[8] and why not (as we are slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say), Let us do evil, that good may come? whose condemnation is just.
[9] What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we before laid to the charge both of Jews and Greeks, that they are all under sin;
[10] as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one;
[11] There is none that understandeth, There is none that seeketh after God;
[12] They have all turned aside, they are together become unprofitable; There is none that doeth good, no, not, so much as one:
[13] Their throat is an open sepulchre; With their tongues they have used deceit: The poison of asps is under their lips:
[14] Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
[15] Their feet are swift to shed blood;
[16] Destruction and misery are in their ways;
[17] And the way of peace have they not known:
[18] There is no fear of God before their eyes.
[19] Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it speaketh to them that are under the law; that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of God:
[20] because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified in his sight; for through the law cometh the knowledge of sin.
[21] But now apart from the law a righteousness of God hath been manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
[22] even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ unto all them that believe; for there is no distinction;
[23] for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;
[24] being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
[25] whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in his blood, to show his righteousness because of the passing over of the sins done aforetime, in the forbearance of God;
[26] for the showing, I say, of his righteousness at this present season: that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him that hath faith in Jesus.
[27] Where then is the glorying? It is excluded. By what manner of law? of works? Nay: but by a law of faith.
[28] We reckon therefore that a man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.
[29] Or is God the God of Jews only? is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yea, of Gentiles also:
[30] if so be that God is one, and he shall justify the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcision through faith.
[31] Do we then make the law of none effect through faith? God forbid: nay, we establish the law.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Romans 3 (KJVS)

[1] What G5101 advantage G4053 then G3767 hath the Jew G2453? or G2228 what G5101 profit G5622 [is there] of circumcision G4061?
[2] Much G4183 every G2596 G3956 way G5158: chiefly G4412, because G3303 G1063 that G3754 unto them were committed G4100 (AorPasInd) the oracles G3051 of God G2316.
[3] For G1063 what G5101 if G1487 some G5100 did not believe G569 (AorActInd)? G3361 shall G2673 their G846 unbelief G570 make G2673 the faith G4102 of God G2316 without effect G2673 (FutActInd)?
[4] God forbid G3361 G1096 (Aor2MidDepOpt): yea G1161, let G1096 God G2316 be G1096 (PresMidPasDepImpr) true G227, but G1161 every G3956 man G444 a liar G5583; as G2531 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), That G3704 thou mightest G302 be justified G1344 (AorPasSubj) in G1722 thy G4675 sayings G3056, and G2532 mightest overcome G3528 (AorActSubj) when G1722 thou G4571 art judged G2919 (PresPasInf).
[5] But G1161 if G1487 our G2257 unrighteousness G93 commend G4921 (PresActInd) the righteousness G1343 of God G2316, what G5101 shall we say G2046 (FutActInd)? G3361 [Is] God G2316 unrighteous G94 who taketh G2018 (PresActPtc) vengeance G3709? (I speak G3004 (PresActInd) as G2596 a man G444)
[6] God forbid G3361 G1096 (Aor2MidDepOpt): for then G1893 how G4459 shall G2919 God G2316 judge G2919 (FutActInd) (PresActInd) the world G2889?
[7] For G1063 if G1487 the truth G225 of God G2316 hath more abounded G4052 (AorActInd) through G1722 my G1699 lie G5582 unto G1519 his G846 glory G1391; why G5101 yet G2089 am G2919 I also G2504 judged G2919 (PresPasInd) as G5613 a sinner G268?
[8] And G2532 not G3361 [rather], (as G2531 we be slanderously reported G987 (PresPasInd), and G2532 as G2531 some G5100 affirm G5346 (PresInd) that we G2248 say G3004 (PresActInf),) G3754 Let us do G4160 (AorActSubj) evil G2556, that G2443 good G18 may come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj)? whose G3739 damnation G2917 is G2076 (PresInd) just G1738.
[9] What G5101 then G3767? are we better G4284 (PresMidPasDepInd) [than they]? No G3756, in no wise G3843: for G1063 we have before proved G4256 (AorMidDepInd) both G5037 Jews G2453 and G2532 Gentiles G1672, that they are G1511 (PresInf) all G3956 under G5259 sin G266;
[10] As G2531 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), G3754 There is G2076 (PresInd) none G3756 righteous G1342, no, not G3761 one G1520:
[11] There is G2076 (PresInd) none G3756 that understandeth G4920 (PresActPtc), there is G2076 (PresInd) none G3756 that seeketh after G1567 (PresActPtc) God G2316.
[12] They are G1578 all G3956 gone out of the way G1578 (AorActInd), they are G889 together G260 become unprofitable G889 (AorPasInd); there is G2076 (PresInd) none G3756 that doeth G4160 (PresActPtc) good G5544, no, not G3756 one G2076 (PresInd) G2193 G1520.
[13] Their G846 throat G2995 [is] an open G455 (PerfPasPtc) sepulchre G5028; with their G846 tongues G1100 they have used deceit G1387 (ImpfActInd); the poison G2447 of asps G785 [is] under G5259 their G846 lips G5491:
[14] Whose G3739 mouth G4750 [is] full G1073 (PresActInd) of cursing G685 and G2532 bitterness G4088:
[15] Their G846 feet G4228 [are] swift G3691 to shed G1632 (AorActInf) blood G129:
[16] Destruction G4938 and G2532 misery G5004 [are] in G1722 their G846 ways G3598:
[17] And G2532 the way G3598 of peace G1515 have G1097 they not G3756 known G1097 (Aor2ActInd):
[18] There is G2076 (PresInd) no G3756 fear G5401 of God G2316 before G561 their G846 eyes G3788.
[19] Now G1161 we know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 what things soever G3745 the law G3551 saith G3004 (PresActInd), it saith G2980 (PresActInd) to them who are under G1722 the law G3551: that G2443 every G3956 mouth G4750 may be stopped G5420 (Aor2PasSubj), and G2532 all G3956 the world G2889 may become G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) guilty G5267 before God G2316.
[20] Therefore G1360 by G1537 the deeds G2041 of the law G3551 there shall G1344 no G3956 G3756 flesh G4561 be justified G1344 (FutPasInd) in his G846 sight G1799: for G1063 by G1223 the law G3551 [is] the knowledge G1922 of sin G266.
[21] But G1161 now G3570 the righteousness G1343 of God G2316 without G5565 the law G3551 is manifested G5319 (PerfPasInd), being witnessed G3140 (PresPasPtc) by G5259 the law G3551 and G2532 the prophets G4396;
[22] Even G1161 the righteousness G1343 of God G2316 [which is] by G1223 faith G4102 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 unto G1519 all G3956 and G2532 upon G1909 all G3956 them that believe G4100 (PresActPtc): for G1063 there is G2076 (PresInd) no G3756 difference G1293:
[23] For G1063 all G3956 have sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 come short G5302 (PresPasInd) of the glory G1391 of God G2316;
[24] Being justified G1344 (PresPasPtc) freely G1432 by his G846 grace G5485 through G1223 the redemption G629 that is in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424:
[25] Whom G3739 God G2316 hath set forth G4388 (Aor2MidInd) [to be] a propitiation G2435 through G1223 faith G4102 in G1722 his G846 blood G129, to G1519 declare G1732 his G846 righteousness G1343 for G1223 the remission G3929 of sins G265 that are past G4266 (PerfActPtc), through G1722 the forbearance G463 of God G2316;
[26] To G4314 declare G1732, [I say], at G1722 this G3568 time G2540 his G846 righteousness G1343: that G1519 he might be G1511 (PresInf) just G1342, and G2532 the justifier G1344 (PresActPtc) of him G846 which believeth G4102 in G1537 Jesus G2424.
[27] Where G4226 [is] boasting G2746 then G3767? It is excluded G1576 (AorPasInd). By G1223 what G4169 law G3551? of works G2041? Nay G3780: but G235 by G1223 the law G3551 of faith G4102.
[28] Therefore G3767 we conclude G3049 (PresMidPasDepInd) that a man G444 is justified G1344 (PresPasInf) by faith G4102 without G5565 the deeds G2041 of the law G3551.
[29] [Is he] G2228 the God G2316 of the Jews G2453 only G3440? [is he] not G3780 also G1161 G2532 of the Gentiles G1484? Yes G3483, of the Gentiles G1484 also G2532:
[30] Seeing G1897 [it is] one G1520 God G2316, which G3739 shall justify G1344 (FutActInd) the circumcision G4061 by G1537 faith G4102, and G2532 uncircumcision G203 through G1223 faith G4102.
[31] Do we G2673 then G3767 make void G2673 (PresActInd) the law G3551 through G1223 faith G4102? God forbid G3361 G1096 (Aor2MidDepOpt): yea G235, we establish G2476 (PresActInd) the law G3551.

Young’s Literal Translation

Romans 3 (YLT)

[1] What, then, is the superiority of the Jew? or what the profit of the circumcision?
[2] much in every way; for first, indeed, that they were intrusted with the oracles of God;
[3] for what, if certain were faithless? shall their faithlessness the faithfulness of god make useless?
[4] let it not be! and let God become true, and every man false, according as it hath been written, ‘That Thou mayest be declared righteous in Thy words, and mayest overcome in Thy being judged.’
[5] And, if our unrighteousness God’s righteousness doth establish, what shall we say? is God unrighteous who is inflicting the wrath? (after the manner of a man I speak)
[6] let it not be! since how shall God judge the world?
[7] for if the truth of God in my falsehood did more abound to His glory, why yet am I also as a sinner judged?
[8] and not, as we are evil spoken of, and as certain affirm us to say-‘We may do the evil things, that the good ones may come?’ whose judgment is righteous.
[9] What, then? are we better? not at all! for we did before charge both Jews and Greeks with being all under sin,
[10] according as it hath been written- ‘There is none righteous, not even one;
[11] There is none who is understanding, there is none who is seeking after God.
[12] All did go out of the way, together they became unprofitable, there is none doing good, there is not even one.
[13] A sepulchre opened is their throat; with their tongues they used deceit; poison of asps is under their lips.
[14] Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.
[15] Swift are their feet to shed blood.
[16] Ruin and misery are in their ways.
[17] And a way of peace they did not know.
[18] There is no fear of God before their eyes.’
[19] And we have known that as many things as the law saith, to those in the law it doth speak, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may come under judgment to God;
[20] wherefore by works of law shall no flesh be declared righteous before Him, for through law is a knowledge of sin.
[21] And now apart from law hath the righteousness of God been manifested, testified to by the law and the prophets,
[22] and the righteousness of God is through the faith of Jesus Christ to all, and upon all those believing,-for there is no difference,
[23] for all did sin, and are come short of the glory of God-
[24] being declared righteous freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
[25] whom God did set forth a mercy seat, through the faith in his blood, for the shewing forth of His righteousness, because of the passing over of the bygone sins in the forbearance of God-
[26] for the shewing forth of His righteousness in the present time, for His being righteous, and declaring him righteous who is of the faith of Jesus.
[27] Where then is the boasting? it was excluded; by what law? of works? no, but by a law of faith:
[28] therefore do we reckon a man to be declared righteous by faith, apart from works of law.
[29] The God of Jews only is He, and not also of nations?
[30] yes, also of nations; since one is God who shall declare righteous the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcision through the faith.
[31] Law then do we make useless through the faith? let it not be! yea, we do establish law.
