((14)) I am under obligation both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. ((15)) So I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome. ((16)) For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the pow

Romans 1:15 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:17 (ESV 2011)

((15)) So I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome. ((16)) For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. ((17)) For

Romans 1:20 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:22 (ESV 2011)

((20)) For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. ((21)) For although

Romans 1:21 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:23 (ESV 2011)

((21)) For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. ((22)) Claiming to be wise, they became fools, ((23)) and exc

Romans 1:22 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:24 (ESV 2011)

((22)) Claiming to be wise, they became fools, ((23)) and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. ((24)) Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their h

Romans 1:23 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:25 (ESV 2011)

((23)) and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. ((24)) Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their

Romans 1:24 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:26 (ESV 2011)

((24)) Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, ((25)) because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rath

25

Romans 1:25 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:27 (ESV 2011)

((25)) because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. ((26)) For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their wo

26

Romans 1:26 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:28 (ESV 2011)

((26)) For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; ((27)) and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed

27

Romans 1:27 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:29 (ESV 2011)

((27)) and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. ((28)) And since t

28

Romans 1:28 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:30 (ESV 2011)

((28)) And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. ((29)) They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of

29

Romans 1:29 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:31 (ESV 2011)

((29)) They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, ((30)) slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful,

30

Romans 1:30 (ESV 2011) - Romans 1:32 (ESV 2011)

((30)) slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, ((31)) foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. ((32)) Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such t

31

Romans 1:31 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:1 (ESV 2011)

((31)) foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. ((32)) Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. ((1)) Therefore

32

Romans 1:32 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:2 (ESV 2011)

((32)) Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. ((1)) Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who

33

Romans 2:1 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:3 (ESV 2011)

((1)) Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. ((2)) We know that the judgment of God rightly

34

Romans 2:2 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:4 (ESV 2011)

((2)) We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. ((3)) Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? ((4

35

Romans 2:3 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:5 (ESV 2011)

((3)) Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? ((4)) Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not kno

36

Romans 2:4 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:6 (ESV 2011)

((4)) Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? ((5)) But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath fo

37

Romans 2:5 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:7 (ESV 2011)

((5)) But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. ((6)) He will render to each one according to his works: ((7)) to those w

38

Romans 2:6 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:8 (ESV 2011)

((6)) He will render to each one according to his works: ((7)) to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; ((8)) but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the

Romans 2:7 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:9 (ESV 2011)

((7)) to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; ((8)) but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and

40

Romans 2:8 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:10 (ESV 2011)

((8)) but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. ((9)) There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also th

41

Romans 2:9 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:11 (ESV 2011)

((9)) There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, ((10)) but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. ((11)) For God s

Romans 2:10 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:12 (ESV 2011)

((10)) but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. ((11)) For God shows no partiality. ((12)) For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who hav

Romans 2:11 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:13 (ESV 2011)

((11)) For God shows no partiality. ((12)) For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. ((13)) For it is not the hearers of the law who a

Romans 2:12 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:14 (ESV 2011)

((12)) For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. ((13)) For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doe

45

Romans 2:13 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:15 (ESV 2011)

((13)) For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. ((14)) For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to them

46

Romans 2:14 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:16 (ESV 2011)

((14)) For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. ((15)) They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while

47

Romans 2:15 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:17 (ESV 2011)

((15)) They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them ((16)) on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges

48

Romans 2:16 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:18 (ESV 2011)

((16)) on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus. ((17)) But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast in God ((18)) and know his will and approve what is excellent, beca

Romans 2:17 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:19 (ESV 2011)

((17)) But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast in God ((18)) and know his will and approve what is excellent, because you are instructed from the law; ((19)) and if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to

Romans 2:18 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:20 (ESV 2011)

((18)) and know his will and approve what is excellent, because you are instructed from the law; ((19)) and if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, ((20)) an instructor of t

Romans 2:19 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:21 (ESV 2011)

((19)) and if you are sure that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, ((20)) an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of children, having in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— ((21)

52

Romans 2:20 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:22 (ESV 2011)

((20)) an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of children, having in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— ((21)) you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? ((22

53

Romans 2:21 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:23 (ESV 2011)

((21)) you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? ((22)) You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? ((

54

Romans 2:22 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:24 (ESV 2011)

((22)) You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? ((23)) You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law. ((24)) For, as it is written, "The name of God

55

Romans 2:23 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:25 (ESV 2011)

((23)) You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law. ((24)) For, as it is written, "The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you." ((25)) For circumcision indeed is of value if you obey the law, but

56

Romans 2:24 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:26 (ESV 2011)

((24)) For, as it is written, "The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you." ((25)) For circumcision indeed is of value if you obey the law, but if you break the law, your circumcision becomes uncircumcision. ((

57

Romans 2:25 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:27 (ESV 2011)

((25)) For circumcision indeed is of value if you obey the law, but if you break the law, your circumcision becomes uncircumcision. ((26)) So, if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the precepts of the law, will not his uncircumcision

58

Romans 2:26 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:28 (ESV 2011)

((26)) So, if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the precepts of the law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision? ((27)) Then he who is physically uncircumcised but keeps the law will condemn you who have the written

59

Romans 2:27 (ESV 2011) - Romans 2:29 (ESV 2011)

((27)) Then he who is physically uncircumcised but keeps the law will condemn you who have the written code and circumcision but break the law. ((28)) For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and

60

Romans 2:28 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:1 (ESV 2011)

((28)) For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. ((29)) But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from

61

Romans 2:29 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:2 (ESV 2011)

((29)) But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God. ((1)) Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? ((

62

Romans 3:1 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:3 (ESV 2011)

((1)) Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? ((2)) Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. ((3)) What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness null

Romans 3:2 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:4 (ESV 2011)

((2)) Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. ((3)) What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? ((4)) By no means! Let God be true though every

Romans 3:3 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:5 (ESV 2011)

((3)) What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? ((4)) By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, "That you may be justified in your words, and prevail

Romans 3:4 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:6 (ESV 2011)

((4)) By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, "That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged." ((5)) But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God

66

Romans 3:5 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:7 (ESV 2011)

((5)) But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.) ((6)) By no means! For then how could God judge the world? ((7))

67

Romans 3:6 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:8 (ESV 2011)

((6)) By no means! For then how could God judge the world? ((7)) But if through my lie God’s truth abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner? ((8)) And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people sland

68

Romans 3:7 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:9 (ESV 2011)

((7)) But if through my lie God’s truth abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner? ((8)) And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.

69

Romans 3:8 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:10 (ESV 2011)

((8)) And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just. ((9)) What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Je

Romans 3:9 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:11 (ESV 2011)

((9)) What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, ((10)) as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one; ((11)) no one understands; no one see

Romans 3:10 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:12 (ESV 2011)

((10)) as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one; ((11)) no one understands; no one seeks for God. ((12)) All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one."

Romans 3:19 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:21 (ESV 2011)

Romans 3:20 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:22 (ESV 2011)

Romans 3:21 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:23 (ESV 2011)

((21)) But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— ((22)) the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is n

Romans 3:22 (ESV 2011) - Romans 3:24 (ESV 2011)

((22)) the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: ((23)) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, ((24)) and are justified by his grace as a gift, through
