Guilty under the Law

I see the main point to be that all who sin, regardless of under the Law or not will be justly judged.

I see the main point to be that all who sin, regardless of under the Law or not will be justly judged. I think that the emphasis is on those that sin under the Law (i.e. Jews) That is what the first half is getting at. This is supported, I think, by a deductive look at the surrounding context, but also inductively merely from this text. I get this by looking at the second half of the arc which seems to make the point that even Gentiles do some works of the Law which further heaps on the judgment for the Jews to whom this is addressed.

Romans
Romans 2:12-16
NT
esv
For all who have sinned without the law
will also perish without the law,
actionresult
and all who have sinned under the law
will be judged by the law.
alternative
For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God,
but the doers of the law who will be justified.
negativepositive
ground
For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires,
they are a law to themselves,
even though they do not have the law.
concessive
They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts,
while their conscience also bears witness,
and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them
on that day when, according to my gospel,
God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.
