which 4he promised beforehand 5through his prophets in the holy Scriptures,

and 8was declared to be the Son of God 9in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord,

including you who are 14called to belong to Jesus Christ,
To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: 15Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
