1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is aaccording to truth against them which commit such things.
3 And bthinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
4 Or despisest thou cthe riches of his goodness and forbearance and dlongsuffering; enot knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart ftreasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 gWho will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 hTo them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 8 But iunto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew jfirst, and also of the Gentile; 10 kBut glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is lno respect of persons with God.
12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 13 (For mnot the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) 16 oIn the day when God shall judge the secrets of men nby Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
17 Behold, pthou art called a Jew, and qrestest in the law, rand makest thy boast of God, 18 And sknowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; 19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, 20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, twhich hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. 21 uThou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, vdost thou commit sacrilege? 23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? 24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is wwritten.
25 xFor circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26 Therefore yif the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, zjudge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? 28 For ahe is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, bwhich is one inwardly; and ccircumcision is that of the heart, din the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
