Or do you show contempt for the riches1 of his kindness,2 tolerance3 and patience,4 not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?55
But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath6, when his righteous judgment7 will be revealed.
God "will give to each person according to what he has done."a87
To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor9 and immortality,10 he will give eternal life.118
But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil,12 there will be wrath and anger.139
There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil:14 first for the Jew, then for the Gentile;1510
but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.16
