To Greeks and to barbarians, to wise men and to unwise men, I am debtor,
so that that is in me is ready to preach the gospel also to you that be at Rome.
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.
For the rightwiseness of God is showed in it, of faith into faith, as it is written, For a just man liveth of faith.
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.]
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.
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.]
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].
For they saying that themselves were wise [Soothly they saying themselves to be wise men], they were made fools.
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.
For which thing God betook them into the desires of their heart, into uncleanness, that they punish with wrongs their bodies in themselves.
