|Romans 2:17-19|| Behold, thou art called a Jew, and rests in the law, and makest thy boast of God, |
And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,
|Romans 2:20-22||20.An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.|
21.Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
22Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?
|Romans 2:23-25||23Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?|
24For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
25For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
|Romans 2:26-29||26Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?|
27And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?
28For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
|Romans 3:1-4||1What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?|
2Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
3For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings,mightest overcome when thou art judged.
