Romim 2 – אגרת שאול אל הרומים ב


1Therefore you are without excuse, O man, to judge your neighbor; for in judging your neighbor, you condemn yourself; for even you who judge practice the same things yourself.  2But we know that the judgment of Elohim is rightly against those who commit such things.  3What do you think, O man? Do you think that you who judge those who practice such things, while you commit them yourself, will escape the judgment of Elohim?  4Do you stand against the riches of His goodness and forbearance, and the opportunity which He has given you, not knowing that the goodness of Elohim leads you to repentance?  5Because of the hardness and impenitence of your heart you are laying up for yourself a treasure of wrath for the day of wrath and the revelation of the righteous judgment of Elohim, 6who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7to those who continue patiently in good works, seeking glory and honor and immortality, He will give Khayei Olam; 8but to those who are stubborn and do not obey the truth, but obey iniquity, He will render indignation and wrath.  9He will render suffering and affliction for every man who does evil, for the Yehudim first, and also for the Arame’ans; 10but glory, honor and shalom for everyone who does good, to the Yehudim first, and also to the Arame’ans.  11For there is no respect of persons with Elohim.  12For those who have sinned outside of Torah shall also perish outside of Torah; and those who have sinned in the Torah shall be judged by the Torah, 13for it is not the hearers of the Torah who are righteous before Elohim, but it is the doers of the Torah who shall be justified.  14For if the Goyim, who do not have the Torah, do by nature the things contained in the Torah, these having not the Torah become a Torah to themselves.  15And they show the work of the Torah written on their hearts; and their conscience also bears them witness, when their thoughts either rebuke or defend one another, 16in the day when Elohim shall judge the secrets of men according to my B’sorah by Yeshua HaMashi’akh.

17But if you who are called a Y’hudi trust on the Torah and are proud of Elohim, 18and because you know His will and know the things which must be observed, which you have learned from the Torah, 19and you have confidence in yourself that you are a guide of the blind and a light to them who are in darkness, 20an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of children, you are the pattern of knowledge and of truth as embodied in the Torah.  21Now, therefore, you teach others but fail to teach yourself. You declare that men should not steal, yet you steal.  22You say men must not commit adultery, yet you commit adultery. You despise idols, yet you rob the Beit HaMikdash.  23You are proud of the Torah but you dishonor Elohim by breaking the Torah.  24For the Name of Elohim is blasphemed among the Goyim through you, as it is written.  25For circumcision is profitable only if you keep the Torah; but if you break the Torah, then circumcision becomes uncircumcision.  26Therefore, if the uncircumcision keeps the statutes of the Torah, behold, would not the uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?  27And the uncircumcision which fulfills the Torah naturally will condemn you, who, while in possession of the scriptures and circumcision, transgress the Torah.  28For it is not the one who is outwardly a Yehudi who is the real Yehudi; neither is circumcision that which is seen in the flesh.  29But a real Yehudi is one who is inwardly so, and circumcision is of the heart, spiritually and not literally; whose praise is not from men but from Elohim.
