1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
1 They that sin, though they condemn it in others, cannot excuse themselves, 6 and much less escape the judgments of God, 9 whether they be Jews or Gentiles. 14 The Gentiles cannot escape, 17 nor yet the Jews, 25 whom their circumcision shall not profit, if they keep not the Law.
2:1 ¶ Wherefore, inexcusable, thou art, O man, whoever judgest; for, wherein thou judgest some one else, thyself, thou dost condemn,for, the very things, thou dost practise, who art judging:
2:2 We know, however, that, the sentence of God, is according to truth against them who, such things as these, do practise.
2:3 And reckonest thou this, O manwho dost judge them who such things do practise, and yet art doing the same, that, thou, shalt escape the sentence of God?
2:4 Or, the riches of his kindness, and forbearance, and long-suffering, dost thou despise,not knowing that, the kindness of God, unto repentance, is leading thee?
2:5 But, according to thy hardness, and [thine] impenitent heart, art treasuring up for thyself anger, in a day of anger and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,
2:6 Who will render unto each one according to his works:
2:7 Unto them, on the one hand, who, by way of endurance in good work, are seeking, glory, honour and incorruption, life age-abiding,
2:8 Unto them, on the other hand, who are of contention, and are not yielding unto the truth, but are yielding unto unrighteousness, anger and wrath,
2:9 tribulation and anguishagainst every soul of man who worketh out what is base, both of Jew first and of Greek,
2:10 But glory and honour and peaceunto every one who worketh what is good, both unto Jew first and unto Greek:
2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God;
2:12 For, as many as without law sinned, without law, also shall perish, and, as many as within law sinned, through law, shall be judged;
2:13 For, not the hearers of law, are righteous with God, but, the doers of law, shall be declared righteous;
2:14 For, whensoever the nations which have not law, by nature, the things of the law, may be doing, the same, not having law, unto themselves, are a law,
2:15 Who, indeed, shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience therewith bearing witness, and, between one another, their reasonings accusingor, even excusing, them:
2:16 In the day on which God judgeth the secrets of men according to my glad-message through Christ Jesus.
2:17 ¶ If, however, thou, art taking the name of Jew, and resting thyself upon law, and boasting in God,
2:18 And art taking note of his will, and testing the things that differwhen receiving oral instruction out of the law,
2:19 Art persuaded, moreover, that, thou thyself, arta guide of the blind, a light of them that are in darkness,
2:20 A trainer of the simple, a teacher of babes, having the forming of knowledge and truth in the law,
2:21 Thou, therefore, that art teaching someone else, thyself, art thou not teaching? Thou that proclaimestDo not steal! Art thou, stealing?
2:22 That sayestDo not commit adultery! Art thou, committing adultery? That abhorrest sacrilege, Art thou, robbing temples?
2:23 That in law dost boast, Through the transgression of the law, art thou dishonouring God?
2:24 For the name of God, because of you, is defamed among the nations,even as it is written.
2:25 For, circumcision, indeed, profitethif, law, thou be practising; but, if thou be a transgressor of law, thy circumcision, hath become, uncircumcision
2:26 If then, the uncircumcision, be guarding the righteous requirement of the law, shall not, his uncircumcision, as circumcision be reckoned?
2:27 And the uncircumcision by nature, completing the law, shall judge, thee, who, notwithstanding letter and circumcision, art a transgressor of law!
2:28 For, not he who is one in appearance, is a Jew, nor is, that which is such in appearance in flesh, circumcision;
2:29 But, he who is one in secret, is a Jew,and, [that is], circumcision, which is of the heart, in spirit, not in letter,whose, praise, is not of men, but of God.
