If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself,"a1 you are doing right.
But if you show favoritism,2 you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.310
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles4 at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.511
For he who said, "Do not commit adultery,"b6 also said, "Do not murder."c7 If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.
Speak and act as those who are going to be judged8 by the law that gives freedom,913
because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful.10 Mercy triumphs over judgment!
