Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it.

Romans 2:14 (NLT)

The older versions say the Gentiles were a law unto themselves. Paul reminds us that apart from external laws, God has given each of us a conscience which regulates our behaviour. God will judge each of us according to how we respond to the light he has given us.
