Romans 2:1-11

God's Righteous Judgment

1 Therefore you have 1no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For 2in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things.
2 We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things.
3 Do you suppose, O man--you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself--that you will escape the judgment of God?
4 Or do you presume on 3the riches of his kindness and 4forbearance and 5patience, 6not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?
5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are 7storing up 8wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.
6 9He will render to each one according to his works:
7 to those who 10by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life;
8 but for those who are self-seekinga and 11do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.
9 There will be tribulation and distress 12for every human being who does evil, the Jew 13first and also the Greek,
10 but glory and honor and 14peace for everyone who does good, 15the Jew first and also the Greek.
11 For 16God shows no partiality.
