The Impartiality of God

1 Therefore you have 1no excuse, a2everyone of you who passes judgment, for in that which 3you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. 2 And we know that the judgment of God brightly falls upon those who practice such things. 3 But do you suppose this, 4O man, cwhen you pass judgment on those who practice such things and do the same yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God? 4 Or do you think lightly of 5the riches of His 6kindness and 7tolerance and 8patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? 5 But dbecause of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart 9you are storing up wrath for yourself 10in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6 11who WILL RENDER TO EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS: 7 to those who by 12perseverance in doing good seek for 13glory and honor and 14immortality, 15eternal life; 8 but to those who are 16selfishly ambitious and 17do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation. 9 There will be 18tribulation and distress efor every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew 19first and also of the Greek, 10 but 20glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew 21first and also to the Greek. 11 For 22there is no partiality with God. 12 For all who have sinned f23without the Law will also perish gwithout the Law, and all who have sinned hunder the Law will be judged iby the Law; 13 for it is 24not the hearers jof the Law who are kjust before God, but the doers lof the Law will be justified. 14 For when Gentiles who do not have mthe Law do n25instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having othe Law, are a law to themselves, 15 in that they show 26the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, 16 on the day when, 27according to my gospel, 28God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.
