They that sin, though they condemn it in others, cannot excuse themselves,
Romans 2:1 Therfore art thou inexcusable. O man, whosoeuer thou be that iudgest For in that same wherin thou iudgest another thou condemnest thy selfe. For thou that iudgest, doest euen the same selfe thynges. Romans 2:2 But we are sure, that the iudgement of God is accordynge to trueth, agaynst them whych commyt soch thynges. Romans 2:3 Thynkest thou thys, O thou man that iudgest them whych do soche thynges, and doest euen the very same thy selfe, that thou shalt escape the iudgement of God? Romans 2:4 Ether despysest thou the ryches of hys goodnes, and pacyence and longe sufferaunce, not knowyng that þe kyndnes of God leadeth the to repentaunce? Romans 2:5 But thou after thy stubburnesse, and herte that cannot repent, heapest vnto thy selfe wrath agaynst þe daye of vengeaunce, when shalbe opened the ryghtewes iudgement of God,
and much less escape the judgments of God,
Romans 2:6 which wyll reward euery man accordynge to hys dedes: Romans 2:7 that is to saye, prayse, honoure and immortalite, to them whych contynue in good doyng; and seke immortalite. Romans 2:8 But vnto them that are rebelles, and that do not obey the trueth, but folowe vnryghteousnes, shall come indignacyon and wrath,
whether they be Jews or Gentiles.
Romans 2:9 tribulacyon and anguysshe vpon the soule of euery man that doth euyll: of þe Iewe fyrst, and also of the Gentyle. Romans 2:10 To euery man that doth good, shall come prayse, and honoure, and peace, to the Iewe fyrst, and also to the Gentyll. Romans 2:11 For ther is no respecte of parsonnes, with God. For whosoeuer hath synned wythout lawe, Romans 2:12 shall also perysshe without lawe. And as many as haue synned in the lawe, shalbe iudged by the lawe. Romans 2:13 For in the syght of God, they are not ryghteous which beare the lawe: but the doers of the lawe shalbe iustifyed.
The Gentiles cannot escape,
Romans 2:14 For whan the Gentyls which haue not the lawe, do of nature the thynges contayned in the lawe: then they hauynge not the lawe, are a lawe vnto them selues, Romans 2:15 which shew the dede of the lawe wrytten in theyr hertes: whyll theyr conscience beareth wytnes vnto them, and also theyr thoughtes, accusynge one another or excusynge, Romans 2:16 at the daye when the Lord shall iudge the secretes of men by Iesus Christ, accordynge to my Gospell.
nor yet the Jews,
Romans 2:17 Beholde, thou art called a Iewe, and trustest in the lawe, and makest thy boast of God, Romans 2:18 and knowest his wyll, and alowest the thynges that be excellent, and art infourmed by the lawe: Romans 2:19 and beleuest that thou thy selfe art a gyde of the blynde, a lyght of them which are in darcknes, Romans 2:20 an infourmer of them which lacke discrecyon, a teacher of the vnlearned, which hast þt ensample of knowledge, & of þe truthe by þe lawe. Romans 2:21 Thou therfore which teachest another, teachest not thy selfe Thou preachest, a man shulde not steale: yet thou stealest. Romans 2:22 Thou that sayst, a man shuld not commyt aduoutry, breakest wedlocke. Thou abhorrest ymages, and yet robbest God of his honoure. Romans 2:23 Thou that makest thy boast of the lawe, thorow breakynge the lawe dishonourest God. Romans 2:24 For the name of God is euyll spoken of amonge the Gentyls, thorow you as it is wrytten.
whom their circumcision shall not profit, if they keep not the Law.
Romans 2:25 For circumcisyon verely auayleth, yf thou kepe the lawe. But yf thou be a breaker of the lawe, thy circumcisyon is turned to vncircumcisyon. Romans 2:26 Therfore, yf the vncircumcised kepe þe ryght thynges contayned in the lawe, shall not his vncircumcisyon be counted for circumcisyon? Romans 2:27 And shall not vncircumcisyon which is by nature (yf it kepe the lawe) iudge the, whych beynge vnder the letter and circumcisyon, doest transgresse the lawe? Romans 2:28 He is not a Iewe, which is a Iewe outwarde. Nether is it circumcisyon, which is outwarde in the flesshe. Romans 2:29 But he is a Iewe which his hyd wythin, and the circumcisyon of the herte is the true circumcisyon, whych consisteth in the sprete and not in the letter: whose prayse is not of men, but of God.
