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.

    Clg: All Men Created Equal? Is that The Paper John Hancock Signed? I Don't think that quote is in The Bible.
  • Clg
    He clearly states in the bible he doesnt look on outward appearance but at our heart. Hes clearly looking at our motives. If someone is going through troubles. Accept youre going through troubles, whatever they may be. Ask Him to help you. Don't give up on Him. He says all men are created equal.

    Praise GOD brethlens beloved.. Apostle Paul in Romans 2:11 i quote "God Has no respect with men" in other translation is that GOD IS A JUST GOD..HE DOES NOT SHOW FAVORISM NEITHER WILL HE SHOW ANY FAVOURISM WHEN HE COME TO JUDGE THE WORLD..WHEN HE COMES HE MEANS BUSINESS... BIBLE IS CRYSTAL CLEAR LETS NOT JUDGE OTHERS,WE AINT JUDGES GOD IS. PAUL PREACHES ON THAT GODS GOODNESS LEAD US TO REPENTANCE.

    ROMANS 2:11 FOR THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD ACTS 19:26MOREOVER YOU SEE AND HEAR THAT NOT ALONE AT --- EPHESUS --- BUT ALMOST THROUGHOUT ALL ASIA THIS PAUL HATH PERSUADED AND TURNED AWAY MUCH PEOPLE SAYING THEY BE NO GODS WHICH ARE MADE WITH HANDS ****EPHESIANS 2:9 NOT OF WORKS LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST****

    Paul is speaking against hypocrisy in those to whom much is given, but don't do; and not if the Gentiles should follow the Law! The point that the Apostle is making; is about accountability to God, and a good conscience, according to the light that's been given. For the one who does not have the Law, but does by nature, (ie; in a good conscience) the things in the Law, is better than a hypocrite!

    Duke,Did you read Romans 2:1-13?Y,your confusion caused you to err.V.14 does not say they are not"required",it says they do not"have" the law,Gentiles did not have the law that the Jews had.They were able to do things according to the "law by nature" because of what v.15 says"shew the law that is written in their hearts, (by God) and their conscience bearing witness"repent of error against Paul.
