Romans chapter 1

1:1  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

1:2  (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

1:3  Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

1:4  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

1:5  By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

1:6  Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:

1:7  To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:8  First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

1:9  For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

1:10  Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

1:11  For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;

1:12  That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

1:13  Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

1:14  I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

1:15  So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

1:17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

1:19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
