045:Book 45


045: Romans Book 45


045:Romans 001:001
Paul,
a servant of Jesus Christ,
called to be an apostle,
separated unto the gospel of God,


045:001:002
(Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)


045:001:003
Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;


045:001:004
And declared to be the Son of God with power,
according to the spirit of holiness,
by the resurrection from the dead:


045:001:005
By whom we have received grace and apostleship,
for obedience to the faith among all nations,
for his name:


045:001:006
Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:


045:001:007
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.


045:001:008
First,
I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all,
that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.


045:001:009
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;


045:001:010
Making request,
if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.


045:001:011
For I long to see you,
that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift,
to the end ye may be established;


045:001:012
That is,
that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.


045:001:013
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.


045:001:014
I am debtor both to the Greeks,
and to the Barbarians;
both to the wise,
and to the unwise.


045:001:015
So,
as much as in me is,
I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.


045:001:016
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.


045:001:017
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:
as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.


045:001:018
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,
who hold the truth in unrighteousness;


045:001:019
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them;
for God hath shewed it unto them.


045:001:020
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:


045:001:021
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.


045:001:022
Professing themselves to be wise,
they became fools,


045:001:023
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.


045:001:024
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts,
to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:


045:001:025
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.


045:001:026
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:


045:001:027
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 recompence of their error which was meet.


045:001:028
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;


045:001:029
Being filled with all unrighteousness,
fornication,
wickedness,
covetousness,
maliciousness;
full of envy,
murder,
debate,
deceit,
malignity;
whisperers,


045:001:030
Backbiters,
haters of God,
despiteful,
proud,
boasters,
inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,


045:001:031
Without understanding,
covenantbreakers,
without natural affection,
implacable,
unmerciful:


045:001:032
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.
