Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.
He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality.
For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law.

In Chapter 1, Paul went through a long list of sins that fall under the condemnation of God. It is good to review them often and to evaluate our lives to make sure none of these have slipped in unnoticed. These verses deal with the hypocrisy of teaching and condemning such behaviors, while engaging in them ourselves. As believers in Jesus we often think we are so loved and forgiven that we can engage in sinful behavior and not suffer the consequences. However, sin always falls under God’s judgment, and His judgment is righteous and impartial. God’s Word will keep us from sin and sin will keep us from God’s Word.
