Ecclesiastes 7:20

Hebrew Bible

18 It is best to take hold of one warning without letting go of the other warning; for the one who fears God will follow both warnings. 19 Wisdom gives a wise person more protection than ten rulers in a city. 20 For there is not one truly righteous person on the earth who continually does good and never sins. 21 Also, do not pay attention to everything that people say; otherwise, you might even hear your servant cursing you. 22 For you know in your own heart that you also have cursed others many times.

Romans 3:10

New Testament

8 And why not say, “Let us do evil so that good may come of it”?—as some who slander us allege that we say. (Their condemnation is deserved!) 9 What then? Are we better off? Certainly not, for we have already charged that Jews and Greeks alike are all under sin, 10 just as it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. 12 All have turned away; together they have become worthless; there is no one who shows kindness, not even one.” Source
