Chapter 2

Romans 2:1 Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are that judges: for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you that judge are doing the same things.

Romans 2:2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to reality against those who commit such things.

Romans 2:3 Then think you this, O man, that judge those who do such things, and are doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?

Romans 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness and forbearance and patience; not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

Romans 2:5 But after your hardness and unrepentant heart treasure up to yourself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

Romans 2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

Romans 2:7 to them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and incorruptibility, infinite life:

Romans 2:8 but to them that are contentious, and do not obey the reality, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

Romans 2:9 tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that does evil, for the Jew first, and also for the nations;

Romans 2:10 but glory, honor, and peace, to every man that works good, to the Jew first, and also to the nations:

Romans 2:11 for there is no partiality with God.

Romans 2:12 For as many as have sinned without Law will also perish without Law: and as many as have sinned in the Law will be judged by the Law;

Romans 2:13 (for the hearers of the Law are not justified before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified.

Romans 2:14 For when the nations, who do not have the Law, do instinctively the things contained in the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves:

Romans 2:15 who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also giving witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing.)

Romans 2:16 In the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Romans 2:17 Behold, you are called a Jew, and rest in the Law, and make your boast of God,

Romans 2:18 and know his will, and approve the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the Law;

Romans 2:19 so are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to them whom are in darkness,

Romans 2:20 an instructor to the foolish, a teacher of the immature, who have the semblance of knowledge and of the reality in the Law.

Romans 2:21 You therefore who teach another, teach not yourself? You that preach a man should not steal, do you steal?

Romans 2:22 You that say a man should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You that hate idols, do you commit sacrilege?

Romans 2:23 You that make your boast of the Law, through breaking the Law, do you dishonor God?

Romans 2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the nations through you, as it is written.

Romans 2:25 For circumcision truthfully profits, if you keep the Law: but if you are a breaker of the Law, your circumcision is made uncircumcision.

Romans 2:26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the Law, will not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?

Romans 2:27 Then will not uncircumcision which is out from physical origin, if he fulfill the Law, will he not judge you, through that which is written and circumcision, you who violate the Law?

Romans 2:28 For he is not a Jew, who is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

Romans 2:29 but he is a Jew, who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
