Romans 1:13-23

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. BBE 16 For I have no feeling of shame about the good news, because it is the power of God giving salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first, and then 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. BBE 17 For in it there is the revelation of the righteousness of God from faith to faith: as it is said in the holy Writings, The man who does righteousness will be living by his 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." BBE 18 For there is a revelation of the wrath of God from heaven against all the wrongdoing and evil thoughts of men who keep down what is true by wrongdoing; 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, BBE 19 Because the knowledge of God may be seen in them, God having made it clear to them. NIV 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. BBE 20 For from the first making of the world, those things of God which the eye is unable to see, that is, his eternal power and existence, are fully made clear, he having given the knowledge of them through the things which he has made, so that men have no reason for wrongdoing: 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. BBE 21 Because, having the knowledge of God, they did not give glory to God as God, and did not give praise, but their minds were full of foolish things, and their hearts, being without sense, were 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. BBE 22 Seeming to be wise, they were in fact foolish, NIV 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools BBE 23 And by them the glory of the eternal God was changed and made into the image of man who is not eternal, and of birds and beasts and things which go on the earth. NIV 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
