For not one of us (A)lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore (B)whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end (C)Christ died and lived again, that He might be (D)Lord both of the dead and of the living.

10 But as for you, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or you as well, why do you (E)regard your brother or sister with contempt? For (F)we will all appear before the judgment seat of God. 11 For it is written:

(G)As I live, says the Lord, (H)to Me every knee will bow,
And every tongue will [a]give praise to God.”

12 So then (I)each one of us will give an account of himself to God.

13 Therefore let’s not (J)judge one another anymore, but rather [b]determine this: (K)not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother’s or sister’s way.
