Paul, a servant of Yeshua/Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of Elohim/god. (which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures:) concerning his son Yeshua/jesus Christ our lord/adonai, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the son of Elohim/god with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: by whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: among whom are ye also the called of yeshua/jesus christ: to all that be in Rome, beloved of Elohim/god, called to be saints: grace to you and peace form Elohim/god our Father, and the Lord/Adonai Yeshua/jesus christ. first I thank my Elohim/god through Yeshua/Jesus christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. For Elohim/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; making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of Elohim/god to come unto you. For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; that is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that often times I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles. I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of Elohim/god unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. for there in is the righteousness of Elohim/god revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the just shall live by faith. For the wrath of elohim/god is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of Elohim/god is manifest in them; for Elohim/god hath shewed it unto them. 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: because that, when they knew Elohim/god, they glorified him not as Elohim/god, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible Elohim/god into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Where fore Elohim/god also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of Elohim/god into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause Elohim/god gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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 and even as they did not like to retain Elohim/god in their knowledge, Elohim/god gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, hater of Elohim/god, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of Elohim/god, that they which commit such things are worrthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
