Romans 2:2-6

Context
2:2 Now we know that God’s judgment is in accordance with truth 1  against those who practice such things. 2:3 And do you think, 2  whoever you are, when you judge 3  those who practice such things and yet do them yourself, 4  that you will escape God’s judgment? 2:4 Or do you have contempt for the wealth of his kindness, forbearance, and patience, and yet do not know 5  that God’s kindness leads you to repentance? 2:5 But because of your stubbornness 6  and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath for yourselves in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed! 7  2:6 He 8  will reward 9  each one according to his works: 10 

1 tn Or “based on truth.”

2 tn Grk “do you think this,” referring to the clause in v. 3b.

3 tn Grk “O man, the one who judges.”

4 tn Grk “and do them.” The other words are supplied to bring out the contrast implied in this clause.

5 tn Grk “being unaware.”

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

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

8 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.

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

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