Romans 2

LEB 1 Therefore you are without excuse, O man, every one [of you] who passes judgment. For in that which you pass judgment on someone else, you condemn yourself, for you who are passing judgment are doing the same [things]. NIV 1 You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. LEB 2 Now we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who do such things. NIV 2 Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. LEB 3 But do you think this, O man who passes judgment on those who do such things, and who does the same [things], that you will escape the judgment of God? NIV 3 So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment? LEB 4 Or do you despise the wealth of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? NIV 4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance? LEB 5 But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart, you are storing up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and of the revelation of the righteous judgment of God, NIV 5 But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. LEB 6 who will reward each one according to his works: NIV 6 God "will give to each person according to what he has done." LEB 7 to those who, by perseverance in good work, seek glory and honor and immortality, eternal life, NIV 7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. LEB 8 but to those [who act] from selfish ambition and who disobey the truth, but who obey unrighteousness, wrath and anger. NIV 8 But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. LEB 9 [There will be] affliction and distress for every {human being} who does evil, of the Jew first and of the Greek, NIV 9 There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; LEB 10 but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and to the Greek. NIV 10 but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. LEB 11 For [there] is no partiality with God. NIV 11 For God does not show favoritism. LEB 12 For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. NIV 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. LEB 13 For it is not the hearers of the law [who are] righteous in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be declared righteous. NIV 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. LEB 14 For whenever the Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature the things of the law, these, [although they] do not have the law, are a law to themselves, NIV 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, LEB 15 who show the work of the law written on their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts [one] after another accusing or even defending them NIV 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.) LEB 16 on the day when God judges the secret things of people, according to my gospel, through Christ Jesus. NIV 16 This will take place on the day when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares. LEB 17 But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast in God NIV 17 Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and brag about your relationship to God; LEB 18 and know his will and approve the things that are superior, [because you] are instructed by the law, NIV 18 if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law; LEB 19 and are confident [that] you yourself are a guide of the blind, a light of those in darkness, NIV 19 if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, LEB 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of the immature, having the embodiment of knowledge and of the truth in the law. NIV 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of infants, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth-- LEB 21 Therefore, the one who teaches someone else, do you not teach yourself? The one who preaches not to steal, do you steal? NIV 21 you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself ? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? LEB 22 The one who says not to commit adultery, do you commit adultery? The one who abhors idols, do you rob temples? NIV 22 You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? LEB 23 Who boast in the law, by the transgression of the law you dishonor God! NIV 23 You who brag about the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? LEB 24 For just as it is written, "The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you." NIV 24 As it is written: "God's name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you." LEB 25 For circumcision is of value if you do the law, but if you should be a transgressor of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. NIV 25 Circumcision has value if you observe the law, but if you break the law, you have become as though you had not been circumcised. LEB 26 Therefore, if the uncircumcised person follows the requirements of the law, will not his uncircumcision be credited for circumcision? NIV 26 If those who are not circumcised keep the law's requirements, will they not be regarded as though they were circumcised? LEB 27 And the uncircumcised person by nature who carries out the law will judge you who, [though provided] with {the precise written code} and circumcision [are] a transgressor of the law. NIV 27 The one who is not circumcised physically and yet obeys the law will condemn you who, even though you have the written code and circumcision, are a lawbreaker. LEB 28 For the Jew is not {one outwardly}, nor [is] circumcision {outwardly}, in the flesh. NIV 28 A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. LEB 29 But the Jew {is one inwardly}, and circumcision [is] of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter, whose praise [is] not from people but from God. NIV 29 No, a man is a Jew if he is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man's praise is not from men, but from God.
