Verachtest du den Reichtum seiner? (Romans 2:4-5) – J.S. Bach

Romans 2:4-5 [German] – Do you scorn the riches of His mercy, patience, and forebearance? Do you not know that God’s goodness lures you to repentance? You, however, because of your stubborn and unpenitent hearts, store up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath and the revelation of the righteous judgment of God.

Verachtest du den Reichtum seiner Gnade, Geduld und Langmütigkeit? Weißest du nicht, daß dich Gottes Güte zur Buße locket? Du aber nach deinem verstockten und unbußfertigen Herzen häufest dir selbst den Zorn auf den Tage des Zorns und der Offenbarung des gerechten Gerichts Gottes.
