14 Days of the Old Testament in the New Testament

Matthew 15:11
It is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.

August 23 – Romans 3:9-20
You will find “bits and pieces” of several Old Testament verses in this reading. Portions of Psalm 14, Psalm 5, Psalm 10, Isaiah 59, and Psalm 36 come together in 3:10-18. Paul freely drew from passages he knew well to prove his point: all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
