who shall render to each according to his works:
to them who, in patient continuance of good works, a seek for glory and honour and incorruptibility, b life eternal.
But to those that are contentious, and are disobedient to the truth, but obey unrighteousness, [there shall be] wrath and indignation,
tribulation and distress, on every soul of man that works evil, both of Jew first, and of Greek;
but glory and honour and peace to every one that works good, both to Jew first and to Greek:
for there is no acceptance of persons with God.
For as many as have sinned without law shall perish also without law; and as many as have sinned under law shall be judged by law,
(for not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
For when [those of the] nations, which have no law, practise by nature the things of the law, these, having no law, are a law to themselves;
who shew the work of the law written c in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts accusing or else excusing themselves between themselves;)
in [the] day when God shall judge the secrets of men, according to my glad tidings, by Jesus Christ.
