As it is written - See Psalm 14:1-3; from which this and the two following verses are taken.
There is none righteous - This is true, not only of the Jews, but of the Gentiles; of every soul of man, considered in his natural and practical state, previously to his receiving the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.

As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one;
All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."
