The uncircumcised (Rom 2:26)


If those who are uncircumcised,

Keep the requirements

Of the law,

Will not their uncircumcision

Be regarded

As circumcision?”

ἐὰν οὖν ἡ ἀκροβυστία τὰ δικαιώματα τοῦ νόμου φυλάσσῃ, οὐχ ἡ ἀκροβυστία αὐτοῦ εἰς περιτομὴν λογισθήσεται;

Paul said that if those who are uncircumcised or with their foreskins (ἐὰν οὖν ἡ ἀκροβυστία), keep (φυλάσσῃ) the requirements (τὰ δικαιώματα) of the law (τοῦ νόμου), will not their uncircumcision (οὐχ ἡ ἀκροβυστία αὐτοῦ) be regarded (λογισθήσετα) as circumcision (εἰς περιτομὴν)?  Paul pointed out that if a non-circumcised male kept the comparable laws to the Torah, then they might be considered as circumcised.  Their uncircumcision would become circumcision by how they live their lives.  Using the thought of Paul, do you consider yourself a circumcised or uncircumcised Christian?
