10 but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
The word “but” offers another contrast between those who want to believe and those who do not.
“Glory” and “honor” are a repeat of verse seven, but “peace” replaces “immortality” in this verse. People can see the dynamic of knowing God in principles of creation.
Peace is a condition of our current lives, but it also includes judicial aspects as well.
to everyone who works what is good,
The soul doing good demonstrates something of God’s natural order of things. God placed righteousness in His system of creation. Divine law gives people a sense of glory, honor, and peace in this life. This is part of God’s covenant with man as Creator. This majesty of law in creation is not the same as issues revolving around salvation.
to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Again, God does not operate by distinguishing between groups. He will not show favoritism to anyone. He will offer blessing to anyone who embraces His plan.
God is true to His principles and standards of creation without exception.
God’s justice is always fair. His law of retribution is consistent without exception.
