- Paul, bondman of Jesus Christ, [a] called apostle, separated to God's glad tidings,
- (which he had before promised by his prophets in holy writings,)
- concerning his Son (come of David's seed according to flesh,
- marked out Son of God in power, according to [the] Spirit of holiness, by resurrection of [the] dead) Jesus Christ our Lord;
- by whom we have received grace and apostleship in behalf of his name, for obedience of faith among all the nations,
- among whom are *ye* also [the] called of Jesus Christ:
- to all that are in Rome, beloved of God, called saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and [our] Lord Jesus Christ.
- First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is proclaimed in the whole world.
- For God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit in the glad tidings of his Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you,
- always beseeching at my prayers, if any way now at least I may be prospered by the will of God to come to you.
- For I greatly desire to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to establish you;
- that is, to have mutual comfort among you, each by the faith [which is] in the other, both yours and mine.
- But I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, that I often proposed to come to you, (and have been hindered until the present time,) that I might have some fruit among you too, even as among the other nations also.
- I am a debtor both to Greeks and barbarians, both to wise and unintelligent:
- so, as far as depends on me, am I ready to announce the glad tidings to you also who [are] in Rome.
- For I am not ashamed of the glad tidings; for it is God's power to salvation, to every one that believes, both to Jew first and to Greek:
- for righteousness of God is revealed therein, on the principle of faith, to faith: according as it is written, But the just shall live by faith.
- For there is revealed wrath of God from heaven upon all impiety, and unrighteousness of men holding the truth in unrighteousness.
- Because what is known of God is manifest among them, for God has manifested [it] to them,
- -- for from [the] world's creation the invisible things of him are perceived, being apprehended by the mind through the things that are made, both his eternal power and divinity, -- so as to render them inexcusable.
- Because, knowing God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but fell into folly in their thoughts, and their heart without understanding was darkened:
- professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
- and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into [the] likeness of an image of corruptible man and of birds and quadrupeds and reptiles.
- Wherefore God gave them up [also] in the lusts of their hearts to uncleanness, to dishonour their bodies between themselves:
- who changed the truth of God into falsehood, and honoured and served the creature more than him who had created [it], who is blessed for ever. Amen.
- For this reason God gave them up to vile lusts; for both their females changed the natural use into that contrary to nature;
- and in like manner the males also, leaving the natural use of the female, were inflamed in their lust towards one another; males with males working shame, and receiving in themselves the recompense of their error which was fit.
- And according as they did not think good to have God in [their] knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind to practise unseemly things;
- being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil dispositions; whisperers,
- back-biters, hateful to God, insolent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
- void of understanding, faithless, without natural affection, unmerciful;
- who knowing the righteous judgment of God, that they who do such things are worthy of death, not only practise them, but have fellow delight in those who do [them].
- Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, every one who judgest, for in that in which thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
- But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth upon those who do such things.
- And thinkest thou this, O man, who judgest those that do such things, and practisest them [thyself], that *thou* shalt escape the judgment of God?
- or despisest thou the riches of his goodness, and forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads thee to repentance?
- but, according to thy hardness and impenitent heart, treasurest up to thyself wrath, in [the] day of wrath and revelation of [the] righteous judgment of God,
- who shall render to each according to his works:
- to them who, in patient continuance of good works, seek for glory and honour and incorruptibility, life eternal.
- But to those that are contentious, and are disobedient to the truth, but obey unrighteousness, [there shall be] wrath and indignation,
- tribulation and distress, on every soul of man that works evil, both of Jew first, and of Greek;
- but glory and honour and peace to every one that works good, both to Jew first and to Greek:
- for there is no acceptance of persons with God.
- For as many as have sinned without law shall perish also without law; and as many as have sinned under law shall be judged by law,
- (for not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
- For when [those of the] nations, which have no law, practise by nature the things of the law, these, having no law, are a law to themselves;
- who shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts accusing or else excusing themselves between themselves;)
- in [the] day when God shall judge the secrets of men, according to my glad tidings, by Jesus Christ.
- But if *thou* art named a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast in God,
- and knowest the will, and discerningly approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
- and hast confidence that thou thyself art a leader of the blind, a light of those who [are] in darkness,
- an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and of truth in the law:
- thou then that teachest another, dost thou not teach thyself? thou that preachest not to steal, dost thou steal?
- thou that sayest [man should] not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?
- thou who boastest in law, dost thou by transgression of the law dishonour God?
- For the name of God is blasphemed on your account among the nations, according as it is written.
- For circumcision indeed profits if thou keep [the] law; but if thou be a law-transgressor, thy circumcision is become uncircumcision.
- If therefore the uncircumcision keep the requirements of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned for circumcision,
- and uncircumcision by nature, fulfilling the law, judge thee, who, with letter and circumcision, [art] a law-transgressor?
- For he is not a Jew who [is] one outwardly, neither that circumcision which is outward in flesh;
- but he [is] a Jew [who is so] inwardly; and circumcision, of the heart, in spirit, not in letter; whose praise [is] not of men, but of God.
