Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:1 - Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, having been separated to the good news of God --
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:2 - which He announced before through His prophets in holy writings --
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:3 - concerning His Son, (who is come of the seed of David according to the flesh,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:4 - who is marked out Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of sanctification, by the rising again from the dead,) Jesus Christ our Lord;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:5 - through whom we did receive grace and apostleship, for obedience of faith among all the nations, in behalf of his name;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:6 - among whom are also ye, the called of Jesus Christ;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:7 - to all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called saints; Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ!
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:8 - first, indeed, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is proclaimed in the whole world;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:9 - for God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit in the good news of His Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:10 - always in my prayers beseeching, if by any means now at length I shall have a prosperous journey, by the will of God, to come unto you,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:11 - for I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, that ye may be established;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:12 - and that is, that I may be comforted together among you, through the faith in one another, both yours and mine.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:13 - And I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, that many times I did purpose to come unto you -- and was hindered till the present time -- that some fruit I might have also among you, even as also among the other nations.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:14 - Both to Greeks and to foreigners, both to wise and to thoughtless, I am a debtor,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:15 - so, as much as in me is, I am ready also to you who are in Rome to proclaim good news,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:16 - for I am not ashamed of the good news of the Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation to every one who is believing, both to Jew first, and to Greek.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:17 - For the righteousness of God in it is revealed from faith to faith, according as it hath been written, 'And the righteous one by faith shall live,'

Unbelief and Its Consequences

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:18 - for revealed is the wrath of God from heaven upon all impiety and unrighteousness of men, holding down the truth in unrighteousness.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:19 - Because that which is known of God is manifest among them, for God did manifest it to them,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:20 - for the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world, by the things made being understood, are plainly seen, both His eternal power and Godhead -- to their being inexcusable;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:21 - because, having known God they did not glorify Him as God, nor gave thanks, but were made vain in their reasonings, and their unintelligent heart was darkened,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:22 - professing to be wise, they were made fools,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:23 - and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of fowls, and of quadrupeds, and of reptiles.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:24 - Wherefore also God did give them up, in the desires of their hearts, to uncleanness, to dishonour their bodies among themselves;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:25 - who did change the truth of God into a falsehood, and did honour and serve the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed to the ages. Amen.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:26 - Because of this did God give them up to dishonourable affections, for even their females did change the natural use into that against nature;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:27 - and in like manner also the males having left the natural use of the female, did burn in their longing toward one another; males with males working shame, and the recompense of their error that was fit, in themselves receiving.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:28 - And, according as they did not approve of having God in knowledge, God gave them up to a disapproved mind, to do the things not seemly;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:29 - having been filled with all unrighteousness, whoredom, wickedness, covetousness, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil dispositions; whisperers,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:30 - evil-speakers, God-haters, insulting, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:31 - unintelligent, faithless, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 1:32 - who the righteous judgment of God having known -- that those practising such things are worthy of death -- not only do them, but also have delight with those practising them.
