[14] For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these having not the law, are a law unto themselves.
[15] Which shew the work of hte law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness and their thoughs the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;

[23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
[24] Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

[23] For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Chapter 7

[15] For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

[2] And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may proved what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

[17] For the kingdom of God is not not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

[1] WE then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
