2 Therefore thou art ainexcusable, bO man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for cwherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. 2 But dwe are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. 3 And thinkest thou this, bO man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? 4 Or despisest thou ethe riches of his goodness and fforbearance and glongsuffering; hnot knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart itreasurest up unto thyself wrath against kthe day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 lWho will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 To them who by mpatient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, neternal life: 8 But unto them othat are contentious, and pdo not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and qwrath, 9 rTribulation and ranguish, supon every soul of man that doeth evil, tof the uJew first, and also of the †uGentile; 10 But wglory, whonour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the †Gentile: 11 For there is xno respect of persons with God. 12 For uas many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and uas many as have sinned in the law shall be judged yby the law; 13 (For not zthe hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law ashall 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 btheir thoughts ||the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) 16 cIn the day when God shall judge the secrets of men dby Jesus Christ eaccording to my gospel.
17 Behold, fthou art called a Jew, and grestest in the law, and hmakest thy boast of God, 18 And iknowest his will, and ||kapprovest the things that are more excellent, lbeing instructed out of the law; 19 And mart 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, which hast nthe form of oknowledge and of the truth in the law. 21 pThou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 22 qThou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, rdost thou commit sacrilege? 23 sThou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? 24 For tthe name of God is blasphemed uamong the Gentiles through you, as it is written. 25 wFor circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26 Therefore xif the uncircumcision keep ythe 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 athe letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? 28 For bhe is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, cwhich is one inwardly; and dcircumcision is that of the heart, ein the spirit, and not in athe letter; fwhose praise is gnot of men, but of God.
