Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 2:11

2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God - He will reward every one according to his works. But this is well consistent with his distributing advantages and opportunities of improvement, according to his own good pleasure.

People's Bible Notes for Romans 2:11

Ro 2:11 There is no respect of persons. Greek, as well as Jew, if he works good, shall have the same blessed rewards. Compare Ac 10:34,35. God is impartial in the blessings conferred (see Mt 5:45), as well as in his punishments.

Discussion for Romans 2

    Nolan, God doesn't send people to hell. He created hell for satan and his angels (demons) Satan knows that God loves us and knows that God gave us free will. So he tempts us and tries to make us choose death over life. Hell over heaven. God gave Christ as a way out of hell...because 1 single sin is a choice to go to hell....until we become saved.
  • Peter
    God doesn't become happy with our outside look. No one is righteous than the other. God wants the soul and cleanse it, read Read Romans 8:8
  • This scripture to me, means, it doesn't matter who you are, whether you be rich or poor, President or farmer, doesn't matter to him. We are all equal to him as people. We will all answer for how we lived our lives. One person is same as next, I believe he only sees our souls. I dont think he looks on our outside, I believe all he sees is our souls, and our souls are obedient or unobedience. That's just what I believe.
  • Matthew G
    Nolan, Verse 11- "For there is no respect of persons with God." The context is verses 9 10. The "respect of persons" being referred to is in relation to Jews and Gentiles. Paul is writing this letter for to Jews, and is essentially telling them, "God's judgement v9 , or God's glory v10 , will be handed out to Gentiles and Jews alike- with no favoritism one way or the other." He's saying, "Don't think you'll be treated with less judgement or more grace just because you're a Jew." See Rom 1:8- "all ungodliness" The bible is clear that all men are in need of a savior.
  • Nolan Gibson for verse 11
    If God is no respect or of persons, why is there a Hell or various degrees of glory ? Why will there be a judgment?
  • Collins Nwoke
    It is a food that nurished the soul men of good will
