God's Righteous Judgment
Therefore you are a inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, b for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.
But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.
And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?
Or do you despise c the riches of His goodness, d forbearance, and e longsuffering, f not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?
But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart g you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,
who h "will render to each one according to his deeds":
eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality;
but to those who are self-seeking and i do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness - indignation and wrath,
tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew j first and also of the Greek;
k but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
For l there is no partiality with God.

Whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed.
And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth.

In flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
"You only have I known of all the families of the earth; Therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities."
And that servant who knew his master's will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
"To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities."
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands.
1 Peter 1:7
That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.
Yet He is not partial to princes, Nor does He regard the rich more than the poor; For they are all the work of His hands.
Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality.
And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
