The Jews and the Law
17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the Law, and gloriest in God,
18 And knowest his will, and allowest the things that are excellent, in that thou art instructed by the Law;
19 And persuadest thyself that thou art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,
20 An instructor of them which lack discretion, a teacher of the unlearned, which hast the form of knowledge, and of the truth in the Law.
21 Thou therefore, which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? Thou that preachest, A man should not steal, doest thou steal?
22 Thou that sayest, A man should not commit adultery, doest thou commit adultery? Thou that abhorrest idols, committest thou sacrilege?
23 Thou that gloriest in the Law, through breaking the Law, dishonorest thou God?
24 For the Name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
25 For circumcision verily is profitable, if thou do the Law; but if thou be a transgressor of the Law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the ordinances of the Law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature (if it keep the Law) judge thee which by the letter and circumcision art a transgressor of the Law?
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outward, neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh;
29 But he is a Jew which is one within; and the circumcision is of the heart, in the spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
3:1 What is then the preferment of the Jew? Or what is the profit of circumcision?
2 Much every manner of way; for chiefly, because unto them were committed the oracles of God.
3 For what, though some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
4 God forbid; yea, let God be true, and every man a liar, as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, and overcome, when thou art judged.
5 Now if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous which punisheth? (I speak as a man.)
6 God forbid; else how shall God judge the world?
7 For if the verity of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory, why am I yet condemned as a sinner?
8 And (as we are blamed, and as some affirm, that we say) why do we not evil, that good may come thereof? Whose damnation is just.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.genevabible.org/Geneva.html Click on "Geneva Bible History" on my site.Yahoo Group Owner
