WYC 5 by whom we have received grace and the office of apostle [by whom we have received grace and apostlehood, or state of apostle], to obey to the faith in all folks for his name, NIV 5 Through him and for his name's sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith. WYC 6 among which ye be also called of Jesus Christ, NIV 6 And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ. WYC 7 to all that be at Rome, darlings of God, and called holy, grace to you [to all that be at Rome, the loved of God, called holy, grace be to you], and peace of God our Father, and of the Lord Jesus Christ. NIV 7 To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. WYC 8 First I do thankings to my God, by Jesus Christ, for all you, for your faith is showed in all the world. NIV 8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world. WYC 9 For God is a witness to me, to whom I serve in my spirit, in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mind of you ever in my prayers [whom I serve in my spirit, in the gospel of his Son, for without ceasing I make mind of you evermore in my prayers], NIV 9 God, whom I serve with my whole heart in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you WYC 10 and beseech [praying], if in any manner sometime I have a speedy way in the will of God to come to you. NIV 10 in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God's will the way may be opened for me to come to you. WYC 11 For I desire to see you, to part somewhat to you of spiritual grace [that I give to you something of spiritual grace], that ye be confirmed, NIV 11 I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong-- WYC 12 that is, to be comforted together in you, by [that] faith that is both yours and mine together. NIV 12 that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith. WYC 13 And, brethren, I will not, that ye not know [that ye unknow], that oft I purposed to come to you, and I am letted [and I am forbidden] till this time, that I have some fruit in you, as [and] in other folks. 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.

WYC 16 For I shame not the gospel, for it is the virtue of God into health to each man that believeth, to the Jew first, and to the Greek. NIV 16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. WYC 17 For the rightwiseness of God is showed in it, of faith into faith, as it is written, For a just man liveth of faith. NIV 17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith." WYC 18 For the wrath of God is showed from heaven on all unpiety and wickedness of those men, that withhold the truth of God in unrightwiseness. [Forsooth the wrath of God is showed from heaven upon all unpiety and unrightwiseness of those men, that withhold, or hold aback, the truth of God in unrightwiseness.] NIV 18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, WYC 19 For that thing of God that is known, is showed to them [For that that is known of God is shown, or made open, to them], for God hath showed to them. NIV 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. WYC 20 For the invisible things of him, that be understood, be beheld of the creature of the world, by those things that be made, yea, and the everlasting virtue of him and the Godhead, so that they may not be excused. [For the invisible things of him, of the creature of the world, by those things that be made, understood be beholden, and the everlasting virtue of him, and the Godhead, so that they be unexcusable.] NIV 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. WYC 21 For when they had known God, they glorified him not as God, neither did thankings; but they vanished in their thoughts, and the unwise heart of them was darked [was darked, or made dark]. NIV 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. WYC 22 For they saying that themselves were wise [Soothly they saying themselves to be wise men], they were made fools. NIV 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools WYC 23 And they changed the glory of uncorruptible God into the likeness of an image of a deadly man [into the likeness of an image of corruptible man], and of birds, and of four-footed beasts, and of serpents. NIV 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. WYC 24 For which thing God betook them into the desires of their heart, into uncleanness, that they punish with wrongs their bodies in themselves. NIV 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. WYC 25 The which [men] changed the truth of God into lying, and praised and served a creature rather than the creator, that is blessed into worlds of worlds [that is blessed into worlds, or without end]. Amen. NIV 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen. WYC 26 Therefore God betook them into passions of shame [Therefore God betook them into passions of evil fame, or shame]. For the women of them changed the natural use into that use that is against kind. NIV 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. WYC 27 Also the men [the males, or men,] forsook the natural use of woman, and burned in their desires together, and men into men wrought filthhood, and received into themselves the meed that behooved of their error [males into males working filthhood, and receiving in themselves the meed, or hire, that behooved of their error]. 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. WYC 28 And as they proved that they had not God in knowing [And as they proved not to have God in knowing], God betook them into a reprovable wit, that they do those things that be not suitable; 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. WYC 29 that they be full-filled with all wickedness [full-filled with all wickedness], malice, fornication, covetousness, waywardness, full of envy, manslayings [manslaying], strife, guile, evil will, NIV 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, WYC 30 privy backbiters, detractors, hateful to God, debaters, proud, and high over measure [hateful to God, wrongful despisers, proud, high over measure], finders of evil things, not obedient to father and mother, NIV 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; WYC 31 unwise, unmannerly, without love [without affection, or love], without bond of peace, without mercy. NIV 31 they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. WYC 32 The which when they had known the rightwiseness of God, understood not, that they that do such things be worthy the death, not only they that do those things [not only they that do such things], but also they that consent to the doers. 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.
