Romans 2:17
Context
The Jews and the Law

17Behold, you are called a Jew, and rest in the law, and make your boast of God, 18And know his will, and approve the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; 19And are confident that you yourself are a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, 20An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which have the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. 21You therefore which teach another, teach you not yourself? you that preach a man should not steal, do you steal? 22You that say a man should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? you that abhor idols, do you commit sacrilege? 23You that make your boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonor you God? 24For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written. 25For circumcision truly profits, if you keep the law: but if you be a breaker of the law, your circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 27And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfill the law, judge you, who by the letter and circumcision do transgress the law? 28For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
