God’s Righteous Judgment
The Fairness of God’s Judgment

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:1 - Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:2 - But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:3 - And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:4 - Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:5 - But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:6 - who “will render to each one according to his deeds”:[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:7 - eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:8 - but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:9 - tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:10 - but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:11 - For there is no partiality with God.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:12 - For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:13 - (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:14 - for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:15 - who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them)

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:16 - in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.
The Jews Guilty as the Gentiles

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:17 - Indeed[fn] you are called a Jew, and rest on the law, and make your boast in God,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:18 - and know His will, and approve the things that are excellent, being instructed out of the law,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:19 - and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:20 - an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and truth in the law.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:21 - You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that a man should not steal, do you steal?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:22 - You who say, “Do not commit adultery,” do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:23 - You who make your boast in the law, do you dishonor God through breaking the law?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:24 - For “the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you,”[fn] as it is written.
Circumcision of No Avail

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:25 - For circumcision is indeed profitable if you keep the law; but if you are a breaker of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:26 - Therefore, if an uncircumcised man keeps the righteous requirements of the law, will not his uncircumcision be counted as circumcision?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:27 - And will not the physically uncircumcised, if he fulfills the law, judge you who, even with your written code and circumcision, are a transgressor of the law?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:28 - For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 2:29 - but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.
