Bible: Romans 3:1-8

3:1 Therefore what advantage does the Jew have, or what is the value of circumcision? 3:2 Actually, there are many advantages. 1  First of all, 2  the Jews 3  were entrusted with the oracles of God. 4  3:3 What then? If some did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? 3:4 Absolutely not! Let God be proven true, and every human being 5  shown up as a liar, 6  just as it is written: “so that you will be justified 7  in your words and will prevail when you are judged.” 8 

3:5 But if our unrighteousness demonstrates 9  the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts wrath is not unrighteous, is he? 10  (I am speaking in human terms.) 11  3:6 Absolutely not! For otherwise how could God judge the world? 3:7 For if by my lie the truth of God enhances 12  his glory, why am I still actually being judged as a sinner? 3:8 And why not say, “Let us do evil so that good may come of it”? – as some who slander us allege that we say. 13  (Their 14  condemnation is deserved!)
