King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 12 All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law.
13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified . 13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.
14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law,
15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness , and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another ;) 15 since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.)
16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. 16 This will take place on the day when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.
17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God, 17 Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and brag about your relationship to God;
18 And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent , being instructed out of the law; 18 if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law;
19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, 19 if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark,
20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of infants, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth--
21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal , dost thou steal ? 21 you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself ? You who preach against stealing, do you steal?
22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery , dost thou commit adultery ? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege ? 22 You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?
