Romans 2 (asv)
2:1Wherefore thou art without excuse, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judges another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest dost practise the same things. 2:2And we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against them that practise such things. 2:3And reckonest thou this, O man, who judgest them that practise such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? 2:4Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 2:5but after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up for thyself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 2:6who will render to every man according to his works: 2:7to them that by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and incorruption, eternal life: 2:8but unto them that are factious, and obey not the truth, but obey unrighteousness, shall be wrath and indignation, 2:9tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that worketh evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Greek; 2:10but glory and honor and peace to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek: 2:11for there is no respect of persons with God. 2:12For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without the law: and as many as have sinned under the law shall be judged by the law; 2:13for not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified: 2:14(for when Gentiles that have not the law do by nature the things of the law, these, not having the law, are the law unto themselves; 2:15in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness therewith, and their thoughts one with another accusing or else excusing them); 2:16in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men, according to my gospel, by Jesus Christ. 2:17But if thou bearest the name of a Jew, and restest upon the law, and gloriest in God, 2:18and knowest his will, and approvest the things that are excellent, being instructed out of the law, 2:19and art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them that are in darkness, 2:20a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having in the law the form of knowledge and of the truth; 2:21thou therefore that teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 2:22thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou rob temples? 2:23thou who gloriest in the law, through thy transgression of the law dishonorest thou God? 2:24For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you, even as it is written. 2:25For circumcision indeed profiteth, if thou be a doer of the law: but if thou be a transgressor of the law, thy circumcision is become uncircumcision. 2:26If therefore the uncircumcision keep the ordinances of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned for circumcision? 2:27and shall not the uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who with the letter and circumcision art a transgressor of the law?2:28For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh: 2:29but 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 of men, but of God.
