Romans 2:5

2:5 But because of your stubbornness 1  and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath for yourselves in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed! 2 

Romans 2:8-9

2:8 but 3  wrath and anger to those who live in selfish ambition 4  and do not obey the truth but follow 5  unrighteousness. 2:9 There will be 6  affliction and distress on everyone 7  who does evil, on the Jew first and also the Greek, 8 

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

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

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

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

5 tn Grk “are persuaded by, obey.”

6 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…”

7 tn Grk “every soul of man.”

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