Romans 2:6-8

Context
2:6 He 1  will reward 2  each one according to his works: 3  2:7 eternal life to those who by perseverance in good works seek glory and honor and immortality, 2:8 but 4  wrath and anger to those who live in selfish ambition 5  and do not obey the truth but follow 6  unrighteousness.

1 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.

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

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

4 tn This contrast is clearer and stronger in Greek than can be easily expressed in English.

5 tn Grk “those who [are] from selfish ambition.”

6 tn Grk “are persuaded by, obey.”
