To each man He will make an award corresponding to his actions;
to those on the one hand who, by lives of persistent right-doing, are striving for glory, honour and immortality, the Life of the Ages;
while on the other hand upon the self-willed who disobey the truth and obey unrighteousness will fall anger and fury, affliction and awful distress,
coming upon the soul of every man and woman who deliberately does wrong--upon the Jew first, and then upon the Gentile;
whereas glory, honour and peace will be given to every one who does what is good and right--to the Jew first and then to the Gentile.
For God pays no attention to this world's distinctions.
For all who have sinned apart from the Law will also perish apart from the Law, and all who have sinned whilst living under the Law, will be judged by the Law.
It is not those that merely hear the Law read who are righteous in the sight of God, but it is those that obey the Law who will be pronounced righteous.
For when Gentiles who have no Law obey by natural instinct the commands of the Law, they, without having a Law, are a Law to themselves;
since they exhibit proof that a knowledge of the conduct which the Law requires is engraven on their hearts, while their consciences also bear witness to the Law, and their thoughts, as if in mutual discussion, accuse them or perhaps maintain their innocence--
on the day when God will judge the secrets of men's lives by Jesus Christ, as declared in the Good News as I have taught it.
