They that sin, though they condemn it in others, cannot excuse themselves,
Romans 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoeuer thou art that condemnest: for in that that thou condemnest another, thou condemnest thy selfe: for thou that condemnest, doest the same things. Romans 2:2 But we know that the iudgement of God is according to trueth, against them which comit such things. Romans 2:3 And thinkest thou this, O thou man, that condemnest them which doe such thinges, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the iudgement of God? Romans 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his bountifulnesse, and patience, and long sufferance, not knowing that the bountifulnesse of God leadeth thee to repentance? Romans 2:5 But thou, after thine hardnesse, and heart that canot repent, heapest vp as a treasure vnto thy selfe wrath against the day of wrath, and of the declaration of the iust iudgement of God,
and much less escape the judgments of God,
Romans 2:6 Who wil reward euery man according to his woorkes: Romans 2:7 That is, to them which through patience in well doing, seeke glorie, and honour, and immortalitie, euerlasting life: Romans 2:8 But vnto them that are contentious and disobey the trueth, and obey vnrighteousnesse, shalbe indignation and wrath.
whether they be Jews or Gentiles.
Romans 2:9 Tribulation and anguish shalbe vpon the soule of euery man that doeth euill: of the Iewe first, and also of the Grecian. Romans 2:10 But to euery man that doeth good, shalbe glory, and honour, and peace: to the Iew first, and also to the Grecian. Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God. Romans 2:12 For as many as haue sinned without the Lawe, shall perish also without the Lawe: and as many as haue sinned in the Lawe, shall be iudged by the Lawe, Romans 2:13 (For the hearers of the Lawe are not righteous before God: but the doers of the Lawe shalbe iustified.
The Gentiles cannot escape,
Romans 2:14 For when the Gentiles which haue not the Lawe, doe by nature, the things conteined in the Lawe, they hauing not the Lawe, are a Lawe vnto themselues, Romans 2:15 Which shew the effect of the Lawe written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witnes, and their thoughts accusing one another, or excusing,) Romans 2:16 At the day when God shall iudge the secretes of men by Iesus Christ, according to my Gospel.
nor yet the Jews,
Romans 2:17 Beholde, thou art called a Iewe, and restest in the Lawe, and gloriest in God, Romans 2:18 And knowest his will, and triest the things that dissent from it, in that thou art instructed by the Lawe: Romans 2:19 And persuadest thy selfe that thou art a guide of the blinde, a light of them which are in darkenesse, Romans 2:20 An instructer of them which lacke discretion, a teacher of the vnlearned, which hast the forme of knowledge, & of the truth in ye Law. Romans 2:21 Thou therefore, which teachest another, teachest thou not thy selfe? thou that preachest, A man should not steale, doest thou steale? Romans 2:22 Thou that saist, A man should not commit adulterie, doest thou commit adulterie? thou that abhorrest idoles, committest thou sacrilege? Romans 2:23 Thou that gloriest in the Lawe, through breaking the Lawe, dishonourest thou God? Romans 2:24 For ye Name of God is blasphemed 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 circucision verely is profitable, if thou do the Lawe: but if thou be a transgressour of the Lawe, thy circumcision is made vncircumcision. Romans 2:26 Therefore if the vncircumcision keepe the ordinances of the Lawe, shall not his vncircumcision be counted for circumcision? Romans 2:27 And shall not vncircumcision which is by nature (if it keepe the Lawe) condemne thee which by the letter and circumcision art a transgressour of the Lawe? Romans 2:28 For hee is not a Iewe, which is one outwarde: neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: Romans 2:29 But he is a Iewe which is one wtin, and the circumcision is of the heart, in the spirite not in the letter, whose praise is not of men, but of God.
