“Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?”
King James Version (KJV)
Ro 2:23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law. The first part of this verse is a summary of the claims of the Jews as given in Ro 2:17-20. Through breaking the law dishonourest God? The last part is a decisive answer, in an interrogative form, of the four reproachful questions just asked (Ro 2:21,22). Through the whole passage privilege and practice are contrasted.
