and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
 Tribulation and anguish,
upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
 But glory, honour,
and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
 For there is
no respect of persons with God.
 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without
law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
 (For not the hearers of the
law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
 For when the Gentiles, which
have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto
 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing
witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
 In the day when
God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
 Behold, thou art called
a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,
 And knowest his will, and approvest the
things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
 And art confident that thou thyself art
a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,
 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of
babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
 Thou therefore which teachest
another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest
idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?
 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law
dishonourest thou God?
 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it
 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law,
thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness
of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
 And shall not uncircumcision
which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the
 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the
 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and
not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
 Much every way: chiefly,
because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
 For what if some did not believe? shall
their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a
liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art
 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God
unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)
 God forbid: for then how shall God judge the
 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also
judged as a sinner?
 And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we
say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.
 What then? are we better than
they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
 There is none that understandeth, there is
none that seeketh after God.
 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there
is none that doeth good, no, not one.
 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have
used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
Their feet are swift to shed blood:
 Destruction and misery are in their ways:
 And the way of peace
have they not known:
 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
 Now we know that what things
soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all
the world may become guilty before God.
 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be
justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
 But now the righteousness of God without
the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
 Even the righteousness of God
which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
 Being justified freely by his grace through the
redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his
blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of
 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him
which believeth in Jesus.
 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but
