which He promised long ago through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures-
concerning His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who was a descendant of Davidb according to the flesh
and was established as the powerful Son of God by the resurrection from the dead according to the Spirit of holiness.c5
We have received grace and apostleship through Him to bring aboutd the obedience of faithe among all the nations,f on behalf of His name,
including yourselves who are also Jesus Christ's by calling:
To all who are in Rome, loved by God, called as saints. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
