1 How blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of Yahwah.
2 How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, who seek Him with all their heart.
3 They also do no unrighteousness; they walk in His ways.
1 Woe to those who enact evil statutes and to those who constantly record unjust decisions,
2 so as to deprive the needy of justice and rob the poor of My people of their rights, so that widows may be their spoil and that they may plunder the orphans.
3 Now what will you do in the day of punishment, and in the devastation which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help? And where will you leave your wealth?
4 Thus says Yahwah, “For three transgressions of Judah and for four I will not revoke its punishment, because they rejected the law of Yahwah and have not kept His statutes; their lies also have led them astray, those after which their fathers walked.
5 “So I will send fire upon Judah and it will consume the citadels of Jerusalem.”
1 Paul, looking intently at the Council, said, “Brethren, I have lived my life with a perfectly good conscience before God up to this day.”
2 The high priest Ananias commanded those standing beside him to strike him on the mouth.
3 Then Paul said to him, “God is going to strike you, you whitewashed wall! Do you sit to try me according to the Law, and in violation of the Law order me to be struck?”
4 But the bystanders said, “Do you revile God’s high priest?”
5 And Paul said, “I was not aware, brethren, that he was high priest…”
11 For there is no partiality with God.
12 For all who have sinned without law will also perish without law, and all who have sinned under law will be judged by law;
13 for it is not the hearers of law who are just before God, but the doers of law will be justified.
14 For when non-Jews who do not have law do instinctively the things of law, these, not having law, are a law to themselves,
15 in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them,
16 on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Messiah [Yahwah].
