New International Version
All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."
King James Bible
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Darby Bible Translation
All have gone out of the way, they have together become unprofitable; there is not one that practises goodness, there is not so much as one:
World English Bible
They have all turned aside. They have together become unprofitable. There is no one who does good, no, not, so much as one."
Young's Literal Translation
All did go out of the way, together they became unprofitable, there is none doing good, there is not even one.
Romans 3:12 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They are all gone out of the way - παντες εξεκλιναν, they have all diverged from the right way, they have either abandoned or corrupted the worship of God: the Jews, in forsaking the law and the prophets, and the Gentiles, in acting contrary to the law which God had written on their hearts. And the departure of both from the truth proves the evil propensity of human nature in general.
They are together become unprofitable - ηχρειωθησαν. They are useless, good for nothing; or, as the Hebrew has it, נאלחו neelachu, they are putrid: he views the whole mass of mankind as slain and thrown together, to putrefy in heaps. This is what is termed the corruption of human nature; they are infected and infectious. What need of the mercy of God to save from such a state of degeneracy!
There is none that doeth good - In Romans 3:10 it is said, There is none righteous; here, There is none that doeth good: the first may refer to the want of a righteous principle; the second, to the necessary consequence of the absence of such a principle. If there be no righteousness within, there will be no acts of goodness without.

there is none.
'There is no difference.'--ROMANS iii. 22. The things in which all men are alike are far more important than those in which they differ. The diversities are superficial, the identities are deep as life. Physical processes and wants are the same for everybody. All men, be they kings or beggars, civilised or savage, rich or poor, wise or foolish, cultured or illiterate, breathe the same breath, hunger and thirst, eat and drink, sleep, are smitten by the same diseases, and die at last the same death. …

A Great Deal for Me to Read Hast Thou Sent...
Nuremberg Sept. 15, 1530. To the Honorable and Worthy N. , My Favorite Lord and Friend.
Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.
"Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit." "The poison of vipers is on their lips."
