Tools specific to Rom 2:19

an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth—

Tools specific to Rom 2:21

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 2:21

you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal?
