141I amaunderobligationboth to Greeks and to 2barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish.
15So, for my part, I am eager to 3preach the gospel to you alsowho are in Rome.
For I am not 4ashamed of the gospel, for 5it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the 6Jewfirst and also to 7the Greek.
For in it 8the righteousness of God is revealedbfrom faith to faith; as it is written, "c9BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH."
For 10the wrath of God is revealed from heavenagainstallungodliness and unrighteousness of men who 11suppress the truthdin unrighteousness,
19because12that which is known about God is evidentewithin them; for Godmade it evident to them.
For 13since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternalpower and divinenature, have been clearlyseen, 14being understood through whathasbeenmade, so that they are withoutexcuse.
For even though they knewGod, they did not fhonor Him as Godorgivethanks, but they became15futile in their speculations, and their foolishheart was darkened.
2216Professing to be wise, they becamefools,
and 17exchanged the glory of the incorruptibleGod for an image in the form of corruptibleman and of birds and four-footedanimals and gcrawlingcreatures.
24Therefore18Godgave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be 19dishonoredamong them.
