D. On All the World Totally
9 What then? Are we better? Not at all! For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin,
10 Even as it is written, a"There is none righteous, not even one;
11 There is none who understands, there is none who seeks out God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become useless; there is none who does 1good; there is not so much as one.
13 aTheir throat is an opened grave; with their tongues they practiced deceit; bthe poison of asps is under their lips;
14 aWhose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.
15 aSwift are their feet to shed blood,
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways,
17 And the 1way of peace they have not known.
18 aThere is no fear of God before their eyes.''
19 Now we know that whatever things the law says, it speaks to those who are under the law, 1that every mouth may be stopped and all the world may fall under the judgment of God;
20 Because aout of the works of the law no flesh shall be justified before Him; for bthrough the law is the clear knowledge of sin.
