On the self-righteous particularly
you are without excuse, O every man who 1judges
, for in what you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.
we know that the 1judgment
of God is according to 2truth
upon those who practice such things.
do you consider this, O man, who judge those who practice such things and do the same yourself,
that you will escape the 1judgment
do you despise the riches of His kindness and forbearance and long-suffering, not knowing that God's kindness is leading you to repentance?
, according to your hardness and your
unrepentant heart, you are storing up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the arighteous
judgment of God,
will render to each according to his works:
those who by endurance in good work seek glory and honor and incorruptibility, life eternal;
to those who are selfishly contentious and disobedient to the 1truth
and obey unrighteousness, wrath and fury.
and anguish upon every soul of man who commits evil, both of Jew first and of Greek;
glory and honor and peace to everyone who works good, both to Jew first and to Greek.
there is no respect of persons with God.
as many as have sinned without the law shall also perish without the law; and as many as have sinned 1under

bearing witness with it

the day when God judges the secrets of men according to my gospel athrough
On the religious specifically
if you bear the name of Jew, and rest upon the law, and 2boast
know the will, and 1approve
the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law,
have confidence that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those in darkness,
who disciplines the foolish, a teacher of 1babes
, having the proper form of the knowledge and truth in the law;
therefore who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach not to steal, do you steal?
who say not to commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob their
who boast in the law, do you by transgression of the law dishonor God?
"the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you,'' even as it is written.
circumcision profits if you practice the law; but if you are a transgressor of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.
therefore the uncircumcision keeps the 1ordinances
