They that sin, though they condemn it in others, cannot excuse themselves,
Romans 2:1 Therefore art thou inexcusable, O ma, whosoeuer thou be that iudgest. For in that same wherin thou iudgest another, thou condempnest thy self. For thou that iudgest, doest euen ye selfe same thynges. Romans 2:2 But we are sure that the iudgement of god is according to the trueth, against them which commit such thynges. Romans 2:3 Thinkest thou this, O thou man that iudgest them whiche do such thynges, and doest the same [thy selfe] that thou shalt escape the iudgement of God? Romans 2:4 Eyther despisest thou the rychesse of his goodnes, & pacience, and long sufferaunce, not knowyng that the kyndnesse of god leadeth thee to repentauce? Romans 2:5 But thou after thy stubbernnesse and heart that can not repent, heapest vnto thy selfe wrath, agaynst the daye of wrath and declaration of the righteous iudgement of God:
and much less escape the judgments of God,
Romans 2:6 Which wyl rewarde euery man accordyng to his deedes: Romans 2:7 To them, whiche by continuyng in well doyng seke for glorie, and honour, and immortalitie, eternall lyfe. Romans 2:8 But vnto them that are contentious, & that do not obey the trueth, but obey vnrighteousnes [shall come] indignation, and wrath.
whether they be Jews or Gentiles.
Romans 2:9 Tribulation, and anguishe, vpon euery soule of man that doeth euyll, of the Iewe first, and also of the Greke: Romans 2:10 But glorie, and honour, and peace to euery man that doeth good, to ye Iewe first, and also to the Greke. Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persos with God. Romans 2:12 For whosoeuer hath sinned without lawe, shall also perishe without lawe: And as many as haue sinned in ye lawe, shalbe iudged by the lawe. Romans 2:13 (For in the sight of God, they are not righteous whiche heare the lawe: but the doers of the lawe shalbe iustified.
The Gentiles cannot escape,
Romans 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which haue not the lawe, do of nature the thynges conteyned in the lawe: they hauing not the lawe, are a lawe vnto them selues. Romans 2:15 Which shewe the workes of the lawe written in their heartes, their conscience bearing them witnesse, & their thoughtes, accusyng one another, or excusyng,) Romans 2:16 At the day when God shall iudge the secretes of men by Iesus Christe, accordyng to my Gospell.
nor yet the Jews,
Romans 2:17 Behold, thou art called a Iewe, and restest in the lawe, and makest thy boast of God, Romans 2:18 And knowest his wyll, and alowest the thinges that be excellent, infourmed by the lawe: Romans 2:19 And beleuest that thou thy selfe art a guyde of the blynde, a lyght of them which are in darknesse, Romans 2:20 An infourmer of them whiche lacke discretion, a teacher of the vnlearned: which hast the fourme of knowledge, & of the trueth in the lawe. Romans 2:21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest not thy selfe? Thou preachest a man shoulde not steale, yet thou stealest. Romans 2:22 Thou that sayest a man shoulde not commit adulterie, breakest wedlocke. Thou abhorrest idoles, and yet robbest God of his honour. Romans 2:23 Thou that makest thy boast of ye lawe, through breakyng the lawe dishonorest God. Romans 2:24 For the name of God is euyll spoken of among the Gentiles, through you: As it is written.
whom their circumcision shall not profit, if they keep not the Law.
Romans 2:25 For circumcision veryly auayleth, yf thou kepe the lawe: But yf thou be a breaker of the lawe, thy circumcision is made vncircumcision. Romans 2:26 Therefore if the vncircumcisio kepe the ordinaunces of the law, shall not his vncircumcisio be counted for circumcisio? Romans 2:27 And shall not vncircumcision which is by nature, if it kepe the law, iudge thee, which beyng vnder the letter & circumcision, doest transgresse the lawe? Romans 2:28 For he is not a Iewe, whiche is a Iewe outwarde. Neither is that circucision which is outwarde in the fleshe: Romans 2:29 But he is a Iewe whiche is one inwardly, and the circumcisio of ye heart, which consisteth in the spirite, and not in the letter [is circumcision] whose prayse is not of men, but of God.
