Romans 2 (WEBP)

[1] Therefore you are without excuse, O man, whoever you are who judge. For in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself. For you who judge practice the same things.
[2] We know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.
[3] Do you think this, O man who judges those who practice such things, and do the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?
[4] Or do you despise the riches of his goodness, forbearance, and patience, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
[5] But according to your hardness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, revelation, and of the righteous judgment of God,
[6] who “will pay back to everyone according to their works:”
[7] to those who by perseverance in well-doing seek for glory, honor, and incorruptibility, eternal life;
[8] but to those who are self-seeking and don’t obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, will be wrath, indignation,
[9] oppression, and anguish on every soul of man who does evil, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
[10] But glory, honor, and peace go to every man who does good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
[11] For there is no partiality with God.
[12] For as many as have sinned without the law will also perish without the law. As many as have sinned under the law will be judged by the law.
[13] For it isn’t the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be justified
[14] (for when Gentiles who don’t have the law do by nature the things of the law, these, not having the law, are a law to themselves,
[15] in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience testifying with them, and their thoughts among themselves accusing or else excusing them)
[16] in the day when God will judge the secrets of men, according to my Good News, by Jesus Christ.
[17] Indeed you bear the name of a Jew, rest on the law, glory in God,
[18] know his will, and approve the things that are excellent, being instructed out of the law,
[19] and are confident that you yourself are a guide of the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,
[20] a corrector of the foolish, a teacher of babies, having in the law the form of knowledge and of the truth.
[21] You therefore who teach another, don’t you teach yourself? You who preach that a man shouldn’t steal, do you steal?
[22] You who say a man shouldn’t commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?
[23] You who glory in the law, do you dishonor God by disobeying the law?
[24] For “the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you,” just as it is written.
[25] For circumcision indeed profits, if you are a doer of the law, but if you are a transgressor of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.
[26] If therefore the uncircumcised keep the ordinances of the law, won’t his uncircumcision be accounted as circumcision?
[27] Won’t those who are physically uncircumcised, but fulfill the law, judge you, who with the letter and circumcision are a transgressor of the law?
[28] For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh;
[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.

Romans 2 (KJVS)

[1] Therefore G1352 thou art G1488 (PresInd) inexcusable G379, O G5599 man G444, whosoever G3956 thou art that judgest G2919 (PresActPtc): for G1063 wherein G1722 G3739 thou judgest G2919 (PresActInd) another G2087, thou condemnest G2632 (PresActInd) thyself G4572; for G1063 thou that judgest G2919 (PresActPtc) doest G4238 (PresActInd) the same things G846.
[2] But G1161 we are sure G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 the judgment G2917 of God G2316 is G2076 (PresInd) according G2596 to truth G225 against G1909 them which commit G4238 (PresActPtc) such things G5108.
[3] And G1161 thinkest thou G3049 (PresMidPasDepInd) this G5124, O G5599 man G444, that judgest G2919 (PresActPtc) them which do G4238 (PresActPtc) such things G5108, and G2532 doest G4160 (PresActPtc) the same G846, that G3754 thou G4771 shalt escape G1628 (FutMidDepInd) the judgment G2917 of God G2316?
[4] Or G2228 despisest thou G2706 (PresActInd) the riches G4149 of his G846 goodness G5544 and G2532 forbearance G463 and G2532 longsuffering G3115; not knowing G50 (PresActPtc) that G3754 the goodness G5543 of God G2316 leadeth G71 (PresActInd) thee G4571 to G1519 repentance G3341?
[5] But G1161 after G2596 thy G4675 hardness G4643 and G2532 impenitent G279 heart G2588 treasurest up G2343 (PresActInd) unto thyself G4572 wrath G3709 against G1722 the day G2250 of wrath G3709 and G2532 revelation G602 of the righteous judgment G1341 of God G2316;
[6] Who G3739 will render G591 (FutActInd) to every man G1538 according G2596 to his G846 deeds G2041:
[7] To them who by G3303 G2596 patient continuance G5281 in well G18 doing G2041 seek G2212 (PresActPtc) for glory G1391 and G2532 honour G5092 and G2532 immortality G861, eternal G166 life G2222:
[8] But G1161 unto them that are contentious G1537 G2052, and G2532 do not obey G544 (PresActPtc) G3303 the truth G225, but G1161 obey G3982 (PresMidPtc) unrighteousness G93, indignation G2372 and G2532 wrath G3709,
[9] Tribulation G2347 and G2532 anguish G4730, upon G1909 every G3956 soul G5590 of man G444 that doeth G2716 (PresMidPasDepPtc) evil G2556, of the Jew G2453 first G4412, and G5037 also G2532 of the Gentile G1672;
[10] But G1161 G2532 glory G1391, honour G5092, and G2532 peace G1515, to every man G3956 that worketh G2038 (PresMidPasDepPtc) good G18, to the Jew G2453 first G4412, and G5037 also G2532 to the Gentile G1672:
[11] For G1063 there is G2076 (PresInd) no G3756 respect of persons G4382 with G3844 God G2316.
[12] For G1063 as many as G3745 have sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd) without law G460 shall G622 also G2532 perish G622 (FutMidInd) without law G460: and G2532 as many as G3745 have sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd) in G1722 the law G3551 shall be judged G2919 (FutPasInd) by G1223 the law G3551;
[13] (For G1063 not G3756 the hearers G202 of the law G3551 [are] just G1342 before G3844 God G2316, but G235 the doers G4163 of the law G3551 shall be justified G1344 (FutPasInd).
[14] For G1063 when G3752 the Gentiles G1484, which G3588 have G2192 (PresActPtc) not G3361 the law G3551, do G4160 (PresActSubj) by nature G5449 the things G3588 contained in the law G3551, these G3778, having G2192 (PresActPtc) not G3361 the law G3551, are G1526 (PresInd) a law G3551 unto themselves G1438:
[15] Which G3748 shew G1731 (PresMidInd) the work G2041 of the law G3551 written G1123 in G1722 their G846 hearts G2588, their G846 conscience G4893 also bearing witness G4828 (PresActPtc), and G2532 [their] thoughts G3053 the mean while accusing G2723 (PresActPtc) or G2228 else G2532 excusing G626 (PresMidPasDepPtc) one another G3342 G240;)
[16] In G1722 the day G2250 when G3753 God G2316 shall judge G2919 (FutActInd) (PresActInd) the secrets G2927 of men G444 by G1223 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 according G2596 to my G3450 gospel G2098.
[17] Behold G2396, thou G4771 art called G2028 (PresPasInd) a Jew G2453, and G2532 restest G1879 (PresMidPasDepInd) in the law G3551, and G2532 makest thy boast G2744 (PresMidPasDepInd) of G1722 God G2316,
[18] And G2532 knowest G1097 (PresActInd) [his] will G2307, and G2532 approvest G1381 (PresActInd) the things that are more excellent G1308 (PresActPtc), being instructed G2727 (PresPasPtc) out of G1537 the law G3551;
[19] And G5037 art confident G3982 (Perf2ActInd) that thou thyself G4572 art G1511 (PresInf) a guide G3595 of the blind G5185, a light G5457 of them which are in G1722 darkness G4655,
[20] An instructor G3810 of the foolish G878, a teacher G1320 of babes G3516, which hast G2192 (PresActPtc) the form G3446 of knowledge G1108 and G2532 of the truth G225 in G1722 the law G3551.
[21] Thou therefore G3767 which G3588 teachest G1321 (PresActPtc) another G2087, teachest thou G1321 (PresActInd) not G3756 thyself G4572? thou that preachest G2784 (PresActPtc) a man should G2813 not G3361 steal G2813 (PresActInf), dost thou steal G2813 (PresActInd)?
[22] Thou that sayest G3004 (PresActPtc) a man should G3431 not G3361 commit adultery G3431 (PresActInf), dost thou commit adultery G3431 (PresActInd)? thou that abhorrest G948 (PresMidPasDepPtc) idols G1497, dost thou commit sacrilege G2416 (PresActInd)?
[23] Thou G3739 that makest thy boast G2744 (PresMidPasDepInd) of G1722 the law G3551, through G1223 breaking G3847 the law G3551 dishonourest thou G818 (PresActInd) God G2316?
[24] For G1063 the name G3686 of God G2316 is blasphemed G987 (PresPasInd) among G1722 the Gentiles G1484 through G1223 you G5209, as G2531 it is written G1125 (PerfPasInd).
[25] For G1063 circumcision G4061 verily G3303 profiteth G5623 (PresActInd), if G1437 thou keep G4238 (PresActSubj) the law G3551: but G1161 if G1437 thou be G5600 (PresSubj) a breaker G3848 of the law G3551, thy G4675 circumcision G4061 is made G1096 (Perf2ActInd) uncircumcision G203.
[26] Therefore G3767 if G1437 the uncircumcision G203 keep G5442 (PresActSubj) the righteousness G1345 of the law G3551, shall G3049 not G3780 his G846 uncircumcision G203 be counted G3049 (FutPasInd) for G1519 circumcision G4061?
[27] And G2532 shall not G2919 uncircumcision G203 which is by G1537 nature G5449, if it fulfil G5055 (PresActPtc) the law G3551, judge G2919 (FutActInd) thee G4571, who by G1223 the letter G1121 and G2532 circumcision G4061 dost transgress G3848 the law G3551?
[28] For G1063 he is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 a Jew G2453, which is one outwardly G1722 G5318; neither G3761 [is that] circumcision G4061, which is outward G1722 G5318 in G1722 the flesh G4561:
[29] But G235 he [is] a Jew G2453, which is one inwardly G1722 G2927; and G2532 circumcision G4061 [is that] of the heart G2588, in G1722 the spirit G4151, [and] not G3756 in the letter G1121; whose G3739 praise G1868 [is] not G3756 of G1537 men G444, but G235 of G1537 God G2316.

Young’s Literal Translation

Romans 2 (YLT)

[1] Therefore, thou art inexcusable, O man-every one who is judging-for in that in which thou dost judge the other, thyself thou dost condemn, for the same things thou dost practise who art judging,
[2] and we have known that the judgment of God is according to truth, upon those practising such things.
[3] And dost thou think this, O man, who art judging those who such things are practising, and art doing them, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
[4] or the riches of His goodness, and forbearance, and long-suffering, dost thou despise?-not knowing that the goodness of God doth lead thee to reformation!
[5] but, according to thy hardness and impenitent heart, thou dost treasure up to thyself wrath, in a day of wrath and of the revelation of the righteous judgment of God,
[6] who shall render to each according to his works;
[7] to those, indeed, who in continuance of a good work, do seek glory, and honour, and incorruptibility-life age-during;
[8] and to those contentious, and disobedient, indeed, to the truth, and obeying the unrighteousness-indignation and wrath,
[9] tribulation and distress, upon every soul of man that is working the evil, both of Jew first, and of Greek;
[10] and glory, and honour, and peace, to every one who is working the good, both to Jew first, and to Greek.
[11] For there is no acceptance of faces with God,
[12] for as many as without law did sin, without law also shall perish, and as many as did sin in law, through law shall be judged,
[13] for not the hearers of the law are righteous before God, but the doers of the law shall be declared righteous:-
[14] For, when nations that have not a law, by nature may do the things of the law, these not having a law-to themselves are a law;
[15] who do shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also witnessing with them, and between one another the thoughts accusing or else defending,
[16] in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men, according to my good news, through Jesus Christ.
[17] Lo, thou art named a Jew, and dost rest upon the law, and dost boast in God,
[18] and dost know the will, and dost approve the distinctions, being instructed out of the law,
[19] and hast confidence that thou thyself art a leader of blind ones, a light of those in darkness,
[20] an instructor of foolish ones, a teacher of babes, having the form of the knowledge and of the truth in the law.
[21] Thou, then, who art teaching another, thyself dost thou not teach?
[22] thou who art preaching not to steal, dost thou steal? thou who art saying not to commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou who art abhorring the idols, dost thou rob temples?
[23] thou who in the law dost boast, through the transgression of the law God dost thou dishonour?
[24] for the name of God because of you is evil spoken of among the nations, according as it hath been written.
[25] For circumcision, indeed, doth profit, if law thou mayest practise, but if a transgressor of law thou mayest be, thy circumcision hath become uncircumcision.
[26] If, therefore the uncircumcision the righteousness of the law may keep, shall not his uncircumcision for circumcision be reckoned?
[27] and the uncircumcision, by nature, fulfilling the law, shall judge thee who, through letter and circumcision, art a transgressor of law.
[28] For he is not a Jew who is so outwardly, neither is circumcision that which is outward in flesh;
[29] but a Jew is he who is so inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart, in spirit, not in letter, of which the praise is not of men, but of God.
