Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle1 and set apart2 for the gospel of God3--
the gospel he promised beforehand4 through his prophets5 in the Holy Scriptures63
regarding his Son, who as to his earthly lifea7 was a descendant of David,84
and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in powerb9 by his resurrection from the dead:10 Jesus Christ our Lord.115
Through him we received grace12 and apostleship to call all the Gentiles13 to faith14 and obedience for his name's sake.
And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.15
