Romans 1

Paul, a servant of A1YHWH B45haMashiach, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel (good news) of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)),

2 (Which He had promised afore by His prophets in the holy scriptures,)

3 B65Concerning His B47Humanity (YHWH haMashiach), B66who was made of the seed of Dawid according to the flesh; – John 7:42

4 And declared to be the B47Humanity of El (YHWH) 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 name;

6 Among whom are you also the called of YHWH haMashiach.

7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God (Elohim), called to be set apart: Grace to you and peace from God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) our Father, and our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach.

8 First, I thank my God (Elohim) through YHWH haMashiach for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

9 For יהוה (YHWH) is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel (good news) of His B47Humanity (YHWH haMashiach), 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 (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) to come unto you.

11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end you may be established;

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 (Goyim).

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 (good news) to you that are at Rome also.

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel (good news) of the Messiah (haMashiach); for it is the power of יהוה (YHWH) unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew (Yehudi) first, and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God (Elohim) revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.’ – Hab. 2:4

18 For the wrath of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) 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 (Elohim) is manifest in them; for God (Elohim) 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 (Divine nature); so that they are without excuse;

21 Because that, when they knew יהוה (YHWH), they glorified Him not as God (Elohim), neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God (Elohim) into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore יהוה (YHWH) 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 יהוה (YHWH) into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this cause God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) 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 יהוה (YHWH) in their knowledge, יהוה (YHWH) 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; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful;

32 Who knowing the judgment of God (Elohim), that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
