For none of us lives to himself alone1 and none of us dies to himself alone.
If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.29
For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life3 so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.410
You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on5 your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat.611
It is written: " 'As surely as I live,'7 says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' "a812
So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.913
Therefore let us stop passing judgment10 on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way.11
