Bible Numbers 2.0

Doers Of The Law

For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. When Gentiles who have not the law do by nature what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness and their conflicting thoughts accuse or perhaps excuse them on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus. (Romans 2:13-16)1

Grace and Jesus' coming does not mean the absence or abolishment of law (Matthew 5:17). And just because the old is fast fading away (Hebrews 8:7, 10) does not mean there is no law. Christians are to have God’s law written in their hearts.

It is not Jewish law, or Moses' law, Western, Eastern or any other human named law. The numbers Numerics Gematria marking this passage are a great reminder of God's law.

Only the devil's children want no law and have no law (2 Thessalonians 2:9).

ου γαρ οι ακροαται νομου δικαιοι παρα θεω αλλ οι ποιηται νομου δικαιωθησονται οταν γαρ εθνη τα μη νομον εχοντα φυσει τα του νομου ποιωσιν ουτοι νομον μη εχοντες εαυτοις εισιν νομος οιτινες ενδεικνυνται το εργον του νομου γραπτον εν ταις καρδιαις αυτων συμμαρτυρουσης αυτων της συνειδησεως και μεταξυ αλληλων των λογισμων κατηγορουντων η και απολογουμενων εν ημερα οτε κρινει ο θεος τα κρυπτα των ανθρωπων κατα το ευαγγελιον μου δια Χριστου Ιησου (Romans 2:13-16 GNT)2

In the Greek, 10 words have to be dropped from the beginning of verse 13, and one from the end of verse 16. If these words were included, there would be no numeric features.3

Removing the first 10 Greek words makes the English appear awkward, but a look at the Greek itself shows that the English word who was interpreted for translation flow. The English would become a complete sentence by itself, Doers of the law will be justified.

The numeric phrase begins with doers of the law, omitting the opening phrase For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God... emphasizing only the most important part. Hearers of the law are not considered anything at all.

The last word, Jesus, of verse 16 is also left out because Christ already identifies which gospel.

Conclusion

God weighs the heart, judges what we do, and judges the result of what we do (Jeremiah 17:10). The number Numerics Gematria features of Romans 2:13-16 confirm this has not changed.

Note 1English reference quotes are from the Revised Standard Version, Thomas Nelson Inc., 1972.

Note 2The Hebrew or Greek text is from Bibleworks 3.0 by Hermeneutika, Michael S. Bushell, 1995, translated into HTML entities. Vowel marks and punctuation from the Hebrew have been removed. Greek accent marks and punctuation have also been removed.

Note 3The fact that so many words had to be dropped from the first verse is also another sign these are not verses with deep spiritual truths.

Note 4The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures, by New World Bible Translation Committee, Watchtower Bible & Tract Society of New York, Inc., 1969 (This is not to advocate for the Jehovah's Witnesses or to support them. It is listed because the book was a Greek-English interlinear easily obtainable at a time of limited means and when interlinear books were extremely difficult to find and expensive.)
