Is there a contradiction between Romans 2:10 & Romans 2:11?

Romans 2:10(KJV)

10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

The (NKJV) says for there is no partiality with God,but it says to the Jew first

Romans 3:1(KJV)
1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? 2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God

    There are no contradictions in the Bible! Only, translations or taken out of context by translators or readers.

    There is no respect of persons, just a certain order in God’s revealing His plan to and through humanity.

    This is merely a parallel to Peter’s meaning when he writes “judgment begins in the house of the Lord.” God’s word will have its impact upon believer and unbeliever alike. But it first occurs upon those nearest to Him. Therefore, after Jeremiah’s prophesies of the desolation of Jerusalem (a symbol of the professing church) was fulfilled, his prophesy next turns toward the nations (Jer 49:12) who made no pretense of a gospel hope. When measuring the temple, John is told to leave out the outer court. Judgment begins in the near and extends to the beyond.

    To every man that doth good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile; which none without Christ, and his grace, and by the strength of nature, does, or can do; not that good works are causes of salvation, but are testimonies of faith, and fruits of grace, with which salvation is connected, whether they be found in Jews or Gentiles; for neither grace nor salvation are peculiar to any nation, or set of people.

    For there is no respect of persons with God. It will not come into consideration, at the day of judgment, of what nation men are; or from what parents they are descended; nor of what age and sex persons be; nor in what state and condition they have lived in this world; nor will it be asked to what sect they have belonged, and by what denomination they have been called; or whether they have conformed to such and such externals and rituals in religion; but only whether they are righteous men or sinners; and accordingly as they appear under these characters, judgment will proceed. (John Gills)
