Many verses state that God respects no man’s person: Deuteronomy 10:17; II Chronicles 19:7; Acts 10:34; Romans 2:11; Galatians 2:6; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 3:25; I Peter 1:17. However, other verses seem to indicate that God does respect some people: Genesis 4:4; Exodus 2:25; Leviticus 26:9; II Kings 13:23; Psalm 138:6.
God respects no man’s person: i.e., money, wealth, nationality, etc. However, God does respect people based on their hearts and actions.
For instance in Genesis 4:4 God respected Abel because he obeyed God in sacrifice. God respected the Israelites because of their affliction. In Leviticus 26:9, God said He would respect the Israelites “If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them…” (v. 3). In II Kings 13:23, God respected the Israelites for the sakes of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who were obedient to God. And finally, in Psalm 138:6, God has respect based on man’s heart (“the lowly”).
