NIV 13 I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles. NKJV 14 I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. NIV 14 I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish. NKJV 15 So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also. NIV 15 That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are at Rome.

NKJV 26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. NIV 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. NKJV 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. NIV 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. NKJV 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; NIV 28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

NKJV 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. NIV 32 Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
