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. 2: We know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. 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? 4: Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? 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; 6: who "will pay back to everyone according to their works:" 7: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory, honor, and incorruptibility, eternal life; 8: but to those who are self-seeking, and don't obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, will be wrath and indignation, 9: oppression and anguish, on every soul of man who works evil, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 10: But glory, honor, and peace go to every man who works good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 11: For there is no partiality with God. 12: For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without the law. As many as have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. 13: For it isn't the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be justified 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, 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) 16: in the day when God will judge the secrets of men, according to my Good News, by Jesus Christ. 17: Indeed you bear the name of a Jew, and rest on the law, and glory in God, 18: and know his will, and approve the things that are excellent, being instructed out of the law, 19: and are confident that you yourself are a guide of the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 20: a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of babies, having in the law the form of knowledge and of the truth. 21: You therefore who teach another, don't you teach yourself? You who preach that a man shouldn't steal, do you steal? 22: You who say a man shouldn't commit adultery. Do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23: You who glory in the law, through your disobedience of the law do you dishonor God? 24: For "the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you," just as it is written. 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. 26: If therefore the uncircumcised keep the ordinances of the law, won't his uncircumcision be accounted as circumcision? 27: Won't the uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfills the law, judge you, who with the letter and circumcision are a transgressor of the law? 28: For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh; 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.
