Romans   chapter 1

   1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an
  apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
   2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in
  the holy scriptures,)
   3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which
  was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
   4 And declared to be the Son of God with power,
  according to the spirit of holiness, by the
  resurrection from the dead:
   5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship,
  for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his
   6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
   7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to
  be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our
  Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
   8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you
  all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the
  whole world.
   9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit
  in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make
  mention of you always in my prayers;
  10 Making request, if by any means now at length I
  might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to
  come unto you.
  11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you
  some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be
  12 That is, that I may be comforted together with you
  by the mutual faith both of you and me.
  13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that
  oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let
  hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you
  also, even as among other Gentiles.
  14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the
  Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
  15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the
  gospel to you that are at Rome also.
  16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for
  it is the power of God unto salvation to every one
  that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the
  17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed
  from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall
  live by faith.
  18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven
  against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,
  who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
  19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest
  in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
  20 For the invisible things of him from the creation
  of the world are clearly seen, being understood by
  the things that are made, even his eternal power and
  Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
  21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified
  him not as God, neither were thankful; but became
  vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart
  was darkened.
  22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became
  23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God
  into an image made like to corruptible man, and to
  birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
  24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness
  through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour
  their own bodies between themselves:
  25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
  worshipped and served the creature more than the
  Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
  26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile
  affections: for even their women did change the
  natural use into that which is against nature:
  27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use
  of the woman, burned in their lust one toward
  another; men with men working that which is unseemly,
  and receiving in themselves that recompence of their
  error which was meet.
  28 And even as they did not like to retain God in
  their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate
  mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
  29 Being filled with all unrighteousness,
  fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;
  full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity;
  30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud,
  boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to
  31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without
  natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
  32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which
  commit such things are worthy of death, not only do
  the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Romans chapter 2
