1 Paul, a a of Jesus Christ, called to be an b, c unto the gospel of God,
2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
3 Concerning his Son a, which was made of the b of c according to the flesh;
4 And a to be the b with c, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection d:
5 By whom we have received a and apostleship, b c to the faith among all nations, for his name:
6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be a: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your a is b throughout the whole world.
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;
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.
11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual a, to the end ye may be established;
12 That is, that I may be a together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.
13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was a,) that I might have some b among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the a; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
15 So, as much as in me is, I am a to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
16 For I am not a of the b of Christ: for it is the c of God unto d to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the a of God revealed b faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by c.
18 For the a of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, b c the truth in d;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest a them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the a things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his b c and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were a; but became b, and their c heart was d.
22 Professing themselves to be a, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the a God into an b made like to c man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also a them up to b through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
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.
26 For this cause God a them up unto b c: for even their d did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their a one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to a God in their knowledge, God b them over to a c mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, a, covetousness, b; full of envy, murder, c, d, malignity; whisperers,
30 a, haters of God, b, c, d, inventors of evil things, e to parents,
31 Without a, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of a, not only do the same, but b c in them that do them.
