The Scriptures (ISR 1998)
1Therefore, 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.
2And we know that the judgment of Elohim is according to truth against those who practise such wrongs.
3And do you think, O man, you who judge those practising such wrongs, and doing the same, that you shall escape the judgment of Elohim?
5But 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,
7everlasting life to those who by persistence in good work seek for esteem, and respect, and incorruptibility;
8but wrath and displeasure to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness;
9affliction and distress on every human being working what is evil, of the Yehuḏite first, and also of the Greek;
10but esteem, respect, and peace to everyone working what is good, to the Yehuḏite first and also to the Greek.
11For there is no partiality with Elohim.
12For 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.
14For 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,
15who show the work of the Torah written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or even excusing,
16in the day when Elohim shall judge the secrets of men through יהושע Messiah, according to my Good News.
17See, you are called a Yehuḏite, and rest on the Torah, and make your boast in Elohim,
18and know the desire of Elohim, and approve what is superior, being instructed out of the Torah,
19and are trusting that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,
21You, then, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who proclaim that a man should not steal, do you steal?
22You who say, “Do not commit adultery,” do you commit adultery? You who abominate idols, do you rob temples?
23You who make your boast in the Torah, through the transgression of the Torah do you disrespect Elohim?
24For “The Name of Elohim is blasphemed among the gentiles because of you,” as it has been written.
25For circumcision indeed profits if you practise the Torah, but if you are a transgressor of the Torah, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.
26So, if an uncircumcised one watches over the righteousnesses of the Torah, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned as circumcision?
27And the uncircumcised by nature, who perfects the Torah, shall judge you who notwithstanding letter and circumcision are a transgressor of the Torah!
28For he is not a Yehuḏite who is so outwardly, neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh.
