For not one of us 1lives for himself, and not onedies for himself ;
for if we live, we live for the Lord, orif we die, we die for the Lord ; therefore2whether we liveordie, we are the Lord's.
For to this end 3Christdied and lived again, that He might be 4Lordboth of the dead and of the living.
But you, why do you judge your brother ? Or you again, why do you 5regard your brother with contempt ? For 6we will allstandbefore the judgmentseat of God.
For it is written, "7AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, 8EVERYKNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERYTONGUE SHALL aGIVEPRAISE TO GOD."
12Sothen9eachone of us will give an account of himself to God.
