God`s Righteous Judgment...
Therefore, O man, you are without excuse, everyone who judges, for in which you judge another you condemn yourself, since you who judge practise the same wrongs.
And we know that the judgment of Elohim is according to truth against those who practise such wrongs.
And do you think, O man, you who judge those practising such wrongs, and doing the same, that you shall escape the judgment of Elohim?
Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, and tolerance, and patience, not knowing that the kindness of Elohim leads you to repentance?
But according to your hardness and your unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of Elohim,
who 'shall render to each one according to his works':
everlasting life to those who by persistence in good work seek for esteem, and respect, and incorruptibility;
but wrath and displeasure to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness;
affliction and distress on every human being working what is evil, of the Yehudite first, and also of the Greek;
but esteem, respect, and peace to everyone working what is good, to the Yehudite first and also to the Greek.
For there is no partiality with Elohim.
For as many as sinned without Torah shall also perish without Torah, and as many as sinned in the Torah shall be judged by the Torah.
Not Just Hearers, But Doers of the Law are Justified and Declared Righteous...
For not the hearers of the Torah are righteous in the sight of Elohim, but the doers of the law shall be declared right.
For when gentiles, who do not have the Torah, by nature do what is in the Torah, although not having the Torah, they are a Torah to themselves,
who show the work of the Torah written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or even excusing,
in the day when Elohim shall judge the secrets of men through Yahushua Messiah, according to my Good News.
The Jews and the Law...
See, you are called a Yehudite, and rest on the Torah, and make your boast in Elohim,
and know the desire of Elohim, and approve what is superior, being instructed out of the Torah,
and are trusting that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,
an instructor of foolish ones, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and of the truth in the Torah.
You, then, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who proclaim that a man should not steal, do you steal?
You who say, 'Do not commit adultery,' do you commit adultery? You who abominate idols, do you rob temples?
You who make your boast in the Torah, through the transgression of the Torah do you disrespect Elohim?
For 'The Name of Elohim is blasphemed among the gentiles because of you,' as it has been written.
For circumcision indeed profits if you practise the Torah, but if you are a transgressor of the Torah, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.
So, if an uncircumcised one watches over the righteousnesses of the Torah, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned as circumcision?
And the uncircumcised by nature, who perfects the Torah, shall judge you who notwithstanding letter and circumcision are a transgressor of the Torah!
For he is not a Yehudite who is so outwardly, neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh.
But a Yehudite is he who is so inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in Spirit, not literally, whose praise is not from men but from Elohim.
