 9 What then? Are we better than they? No, in no way. For we have previously proved to both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

 10 As it is written, "There is no one who is righteous, no, not one. [There were times in Israel when no one was righteous, and there are times when there is not a righteous man on the whole earth. But obviously Noah was righteous, Moses was righteous, the Apostles with tens of thousands of their early church were righteous, and tens of thousands of the early Quakers were righteous. Of all the righteous men in scriptures, the following is a partial list: Job, Enoch, Noah, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Jehoshaphat, Nehemiah, Deborah Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Zechariah, Hosea, Zacharias, Elizabeth, Hezekiah, Asa, David, etc.]

 11 There is no one who understands, there is no one who seeks after God. [There were times in Israel when the way to seek God had been lost, and there are times when no one on the whole earth is seeking God properly. To seek God, you must patiently and persistently wait on Him in humble silence, listen for His spoken words, and then obey what he commands; God is only found and known through revelation. The most common error has been to think studying the scriptures was seeking God. The Jews studied the scriptures, but because they did not understand God, they crucified the Holy One of Israel.]

 12 They have all gone out of the way, together they have become unprofitable; there is no one who does good, no, not one. [There were times in Israel when no one did good, and there are times when no one does good on the whole earth.]
