Romans 2:4-6

Context
2:4 Or do you have contempt for the wealth of his kindness, forbearance, and patience, and yet do not know 1  that God’s kindness leads you to repentance? 2:5 But because of your stubbornness 2  and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath for yourselves in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed! 3  2:6 He 4  will reward 5  each one according to his works: 6 

Romans 2:9

Context
2:9 There will be 7  affliction and distress on everyone 8  who does evil, on the Jew first and also the Greek, 9 

1 tn Grk “being unaware.”

2 tn Grk “hardness.” Concerning this imagery, see Jer 4:4; Ezek 3:7; 1 En. 16:3.

3 tn Grk “in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God.”

4 tn Grk “who.” The relative pronoun was converted to a personal pronoun and, because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

5 tn Or “will render,” “will recompense.” In this context Paul is setting up a hypothetical situation, not stating that salvation is by works.

6 sn A quotation from Ps 62:12; Prov 24:12; a close approximation to Matt 16:27.

7 tn No verb is expressed in this verse, but the verb “to be” is implied by the Greek construction. Literally “suffering and distress on everyone…”

8 tn Grk “every soul of man.”

9 sn Paul uses the term Greek here and in v. 10 to refer to non-Jews, i.e., Gentiles.
