The Impartiality of God

1 Therefore you have no R58 excuse, everyone R59 F23 of you who passes judgment, for in that which you R60 judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. 2 And we know that the judgment of God rightly F24 falls upon those who practice such things. 3 But do you suppose this, O R61 man, when F25 you pass judgment on those who practice such things and do the same yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God? 4 Or do you think lightly of the R62 riches of His kindness R63 and tolerance R64 and patience, R65 not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? 5 But because F26 of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you R66 are storing up wrath for yourself in R67 the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6 who R68 WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: 7 to those who by perseverance R69 in doing good seek for glory R70 and honor and immortality, R71 eternal R72 life; 8 but to those who are selfishly R73 ambitious and do R74 not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation. 9 There will be tribulation R75 and distress for F27 every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first R76 and also of the Greek, 10 but glory R77 and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first R78 and also to the Greek. 11 For there R79 is no partiality with God.

12 For all who have sinned without R80 F28 the Law will also perish without F28 the Law, and all who have sinned under F29 the Law will be judged by F30 the Law; 13 for it is not R81 the hearers of F31 the Law who are just F32 before God, but the doers of F31 the Law will be justified. 14 For when Gentiles who do not have the F33 Law do instinctively R82 F34 the things of the Law, these, not having the F33 Law, are a law to themselves, 15 in that they show the R83 work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, 16 on the day when, according R84 to my gospel, God R85 will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.

The Jew Is Condemned by the Law

17 But if you bear the name "Jew" and rely R86 upon F35 the Law and boast in God, 18 and know His will and approve R87 F36 the things that are essential, being instructed out of the Law, 19 and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 20 a corrector F37 of the foolish, a teacher of the F38 immature, having in the Law the R88 embodiment of knowledge and of the truth, 21 you, therefore, who R89 teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach F39 that one shall not steal, do you steal? 22 You who say that one should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob R90 temples? 23 You who boast R91 in F40 the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God? 24 For "THE R92 NAME OF GOD IS BLASPHEMED AMONG THE GENTILES BECAUSE R93 OF YOU," just as it is written.

25 For indeed circumcision is of value if you practice R94 the F41 Law; but if you are a transgressor of F42 the Law, your R95 circumcision has become uncircumcision. 26 So R96 if the R97 uncircumcised F43 man keeps R98 the requirements of the Law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision? 27 And he R99 who is physically uncircumcised, if he keeps the Law, will he not judge R100 you who though F44 having the letter of the Law and circumcision are a transgressor of F45 the Law? 28 For he R101 is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. 29 But he R102 is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision R103 is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, R104 not by the letter; and R105 his praise is not from men, but from God.
