Romans 2

Romans 2:1  
Therefore you are without excuse, O man, whoever you are who judge. For in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself. For you who judge practice the same things.

Romans 2:2  
We know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.

Romans 2:3  
Do you think this, O man who judges those who practice such things, and do the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?

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

Romans 2:5  
But according to your hardness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, revelation, and of the righteous judgment of God,

Romans 2:6  
who “will pay back to everyone according to their works:”

Romans 2:7  
to those who by perseverance in well-doing seek for glory, honor, and incorruptibility, eternal life;

Romans 2:8  
but to those who are self-seeking and don’t obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, will be wrath, indignation,

Romans 2:9  
oppression, and anguish on every soul of man who does evil, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Romans 2:10  
But glory, honor, and peace go to every man who does good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

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

Romans 2:12  
For as many as have sinned without the law will also perish without the law. As many as have sinned under the law will be judged by the law.

Romans 2:13  
For it isn’t the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be justified

Romans 2:14  
(for when Gentiles who don’t have the law do by nature the things of the law, these, not having the law, are a law to themselves,

Romans 2:15  
in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience testifying with them, and their thoughts among themselves accusing or else excusing them)

Romans 2:16  
in the day when God will judge the secrets of men, according to my Good News, by Jesus Christ.

Romans 2:17  
Indeed you bear the name of a Jew, rest on the law, glory in God,

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

Romans 2:19  
and are confident that you yourself are a guide of the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,

Romans 2:20  
a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of babies, having in the law the form of knowledge and of the truth.

Romans 2:21  
You therefore who teach another, don’t you teach yourself? You who preach that a man shouldn’t steal, do you steal?

Romans 2:22  
You who say a man shouldn’t commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?

Romans 2:23  
You who glory in the law, do you dishonor God by disobeying the law?

Romans 2:24  
For “the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you,” just as it is written.

Romans 2:25  
For circumcision indeed profits, if you are a doer of the law, but if you are a transgressor of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.

Romans 2:26  
If therefore the uncircumcised keep the ordinances of the law, won’t his uncircumcision be accounted as circumcision?

Romans 2:27  
Won’t those who are physically uncircumcised, but fulfill the law, judge you, who with the letter and circumcision are a transgressor of 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, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men, but from God.
