NRS 3 the gospel concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh CEB 4 He was publicly identified as God's Son with power through his resurrection from the dead, which was based on the Spirit of holiness.

This was to bring all Gentiles to faithful obedience for his name's sake. NRS 5 through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for the sake of his name, CEB 6 You who are called by Jesus Christ are also included among these Gentiles. NRS 6 including yourselves who are called to belong to Jesus Christ, CEB 7 To those in Rome who are dearly loved by God and called to be God's people. NRS 7 To all God's beloved in Rome, who are called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. CEB 8 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.First of all, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because the news about your faithfulness is being spread throughout the whole world. NRS 8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed throughout the world. CEB 9 I serve God in my spirit by preaching the good news about God's Son, and God is my witness that I continually mention you NRS 9 For God, whom I serve with my spirit by announcing the gospel of his Son, is my witness that without ceasing I remember you always in my prayers, CEB 10 in all my prayers. I'm always asking that somehow, by God's will, I might succeed in visiting you at last. NRS 10 asking that by God's will I may somehow at last succeed in coming to you. CEB 11 I really want to see you to pass along some spiritual gift to you so that you can be strengthened. NRS 11 For I am longing to see you so that I may share with you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— CEB 12 What I mean is that we can mutually encourage each other while I am with you. We can be encouraged by the faithfulness we find in each other, both your faithfulness and mine. NRS 12 or rather so that we may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith, both yours and mine. CEB 13 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that I planned to visit you many times, although I have been prevented from coming until now. I want to harvest some fruit among you, just as I have done among the other Gentiles. NRS 13 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that I have often intended to come to you (but thus far have been prevented), in order that I may reap some harvest among you as I have among the rest of the Gentiles. CEB 14 I have a responsibility both to Greeks and to those who don't speak Greek, both to the wise and to the foolish. NRS 14 I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish CEB 15 That's why I'm ready to preach the gospel also to you who are in Rome. NRS 15 —hence my eagerness to proclaim the gospel to you also who are in Rome. CEB 16 I'm not ashamed of the gospel: it is God's own power for salvation to all who have faith in God, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. NRS 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. CEB 17 God's righteousness is being revealed in the gospel, from faithfulness for faith, as it is written, The righteous person will live by faith. NRS 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, "The one who is righteous will live by faith." CEB 18 God's wrath is being revealed from heaven against all the ungodly behavior and the injustice of human beings who silence the truth with injustice. NRS 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of those who by their wickedness suppress the truth. CEB 19 This is because what is known about God should be plain to them because God made it plain to them. NRS 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. CEB 20 Ever since the creation of the world, God's invisible qualities—God's eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, because they are understood through the things God has made. So humans are without excuse. NRS 20 Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things he has made. So they are without excuse; CEB 21 Although they knew God, they didn't honor God as God or thank him. Instead, their reasoning became pointless, and their foolish hearts were darkened. NRS 21 for though they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their senseless minds were darkened. CEB 22 While they were claiming to be wise, they made fools of themselves. NRS 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools; CEB 23 They exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images that look like mortal humans: birds, animals, and reptiles. NRS 23 and they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling a mortal human being or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles. CEB 24 So God abandoned them to their hearts' desires, which led to the moral corruption of degrading their own bodies with each other. NRS 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the degrading of their bodies among themselves, CEB 25 They traded God's truth for a lie, and they worshipped and served the creation instead of the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. NRS 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. CEB 26 That's why God abandoned them to degrading lust. Their females traded natural sexual relations for unnatural sexual relations. NRS 26 For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, CEB 27 Also, in the same way, the males traded natural sexual relations with females, and burned with lust for each other. Males performed shameful actions with males, and they were paid back with the penalty they deserved for their mistake in their own bodies. NRS 27 and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error. CEB 28 Since they didn't think it was worthwhile to acknowledge God, God abandoned them to a defective mind to do inappropriate things. NRS 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind and to things that should not be done. CEB 29 So they were filled with all injustice, wicked behavior, greed, and evil behavior. They are full of jealousy, murder, fighting, deception, and malice. They are gossips, NRS 29 They were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, craftiness, they are gossips, CEB 30 they slander people, and they hate God. They are rude and proud, and they brag. They invent ways to be evil, and they are disobedient to their parents. NRS 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious toward parents, CEB 31 They are without understanding, disloyal, without affection, and without mercy. NRS 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. CEB 32 Though they know God's decision that those who persist in such practices deserve death, they not only keep doing these things but also approve others who practice them. NRS 32 They know God's decree, that those who practice such things deserve to die—yet they not only do them but even applaud others who practice them.
