2:11 For there is no partiality with God. 2:12 For all who have sinned apart from the law 1 will also perish apart from the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. 2:13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous before God, but those who do the law will be declared righteous. 2 2:14 For whenever the Gentiles, 3 who do not have the law, do by nature 4 the things required by the law, 5 these who do not have the law are a law to themselves. 2:15 They 6 show that the work of the law is written 7 in their hearts, as their conscience bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or else defend 8 them, 9 2:16 on the day when God will judge 10 the secrets of human hearts, 11 according to my gospel 12 through Christ Jesus.
The Condemnation of the Jew
2:17 But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law 13 and boast of your relationship to God 14 2:18 and know his will 15 and approve the superior things because you receive instruction from the law, 16 2:19 and if you are convinced 17 that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 2:20 an educator of the senseless, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the essential features of knowledge and of the truth – 2:21 therefore 18 you who teach someone else, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal?
