BBE 1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, an Apostle by the selection of God, given authority as a preacher of the good news, NIV 1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God-- BBE 2 Of which God had given word before by his prophets in the holy Writings, NIV 2 the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures BBE 3 About his Son who, in the flesh, came from the family of David, NIV 3 regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David, BBE 4 But was marked out as Son of God in power by the Holy Spirit through the coming to life again of the dead; Jesus Christ our Lord, NIV 4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. BBE 5 Through whom grace has been given to us, sending us out to make disciples to the faith among all nations, 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. BBE 6 Among whom you in the same way have been marked out to be disciples of Jesus Christ: NIV 6 And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ. BBE 7 To all those who are in Rome, loved by God, marked out as saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and 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. BBE 8 First of all, I give praise to my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because news of your faith has gone into 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. BBE 9 For God is my witness, whose servant I am in spirit in the good news of his Son, that you are at all times in my memory and 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 BBE 10 And that I am ever making prayers that God will give me a good journey 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. BBE 11 For I have a strong desire to see you, and to give you some grace of the spirit, so that you may be made strong; NIV 11 I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong-- BBE 12 That is to say, that all of us may be comforted together by the faith which is in you and in me. NIV 12 that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith. BBE 13 You may be certain, my brothers, that it has frequently been in my mind to come to you (but till now I was kept from it), so that I might have some fruit from you in the same way as I have had it from the other nations. 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. BBE 14 I have a debt to Greeks and to the nations outside; to the wise and to those who have no learning. NIV 14 I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish. BBE 15 For which reason I have the desire, as far as I am able, to give the knowledge of the good news to you who are in Rome. NIV 15 That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are at Rome.
