Pristine Grace

Rom 1:1-32, (KJV)
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 name:
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 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.
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 Greek.
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 fools,
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; whisperers,
30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
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.

Rom 1:1-32, (MKJV)
1  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, separated to the gospel of God
2  (which He had promised beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures),
3  about His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who was made of the seed of David according to the flesh,
4  who was marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead;
5  by whom we have received grace and apostleship, to obedience to the faith among all nations, for His name;
6  among whom you also are the called-out ones of Jesus Christ:
7  to all those who are 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
10  always in my prayers, making request if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come to you.
11  For I long to see you, so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, to you for the establishing of you.
12  And this is to be comforted together with you by our mutual faith, both yours and mine.
13  But I would not have you ignorant, brothers, that oftentimes I purposed to come to you, and was kept back until the present; that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other nations.
14  I am debtor both to the Greeks and to the foreigners, both to the wise and to the unwise.
15  So, as much as is in me lies , I am ready to preach the gospel to you who 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 everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
17  For in it the righteousness of God is 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 the thing which may be known of God is clearly revealed within them, for God revealed it to them.
20  For the unseen things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being realized by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, for them to be without excuse.
21  Because, knowing God, they did not glorify Him as God, neither were thankful. But they became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22  Professing to be wise, they became fools
23  and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.
24  Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.
25  For they changed the truth of God into a lie, and they worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26  For this cause, God gave them up to dishonorable affections. For even their women changed 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 toward one another; males with males working out shamefulness, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error.
28  And even as they did not think fit to have God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do the things not right,
29  being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; being full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, evil habits, becoming whisperers,
30  backbiters, haters of God, insolent, proud, braggarts, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31  undiscerning, perfidious, without natural affection, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32  who, knowing the righteous order of God, that those practicing such things are worthy of death, not only do them, but have pleasure in those practicing them .

Rom 1:1-32, (NASB)
1  Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God,
2  which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,
3  concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh,
4  who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord,
5  through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for His name's sake,
6  among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ;
7  to all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as 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, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world.
9  For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I make mention of you,
10  always in my prayers making request, if perhaps now at last by the will of God I may succeed in coming to you.
11  For I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established;
12  that is, that I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us by the other's faith, both yours and mine.
13  I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that often I have planned to come to you (and have been prevented so far) so that I may obtain some fruit among you also, even as among the rest of the Gentiles.
14  I am under obligation both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish.
15  So, for my part, I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome.
16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
17  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "But the righteous man shall live by faith."
18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19  because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
20  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
21  For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22  Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23  and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
24  Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.
25  For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26  For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,
27  and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
28  And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,
29  being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips,
30  slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
31  without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;
32  and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Rom 1:1-32, (LITV)
1  Paul, a slave of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, separated to the gospel of God,
2  which He promised before through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,
3  concerning His Son who came of the seed of David according to flesh,
4  who was marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord;
5  by whom we received grace and apostleship to obedience of faith among all the nations, for His name's sake,
6  among whom are you also, called-out ones of Jesus Christ;
7  to all those who are in Rome, beloved of God, called-out saints: Grace and peace to you 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 in all the world.
9  For God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit in the gospel of His Son, how without ceasing I make mention of you
10  always at my prayers, beseeching if by any means now at length I shall be blessed by the will of God to come to you.
11  For I long to see you, that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, for the establishing of you;
12  and this is to be comforted together among you, through the faith in one another, both yours and mine.
13  But I do not wish you to be ignorant, brothers, that often I purposed to come to you, and was kept back until the present, that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among the other nations.
14  I am a debtor both to Greeks and to foreigners, both to wise, and to foolish,
15  so as far as lies in me, I am eager to preach the gospel to you in Rome also.
16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation to everyone believing, both to Jew first, and to Greek;
17  for in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; even as it has been written, "But the just shall live by faith." Hab. 2:4
18  For God's wrath is revealed from Heaven on all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, holding the truth in unrighteousness,
19  because the thing known of God is clearly known within them, for God revealed it to them.
20  For the unseen things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things made, both His eternal power and Godhead, for them to be without excuse.
21  Because knowing God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful. But they became vain in their reasonings, and their undiscerning heart was darkened.
22  Professing to be wise, they became foolish
23  and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into a likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.
24  Because of this, God gave them up to impurity in the lusts of their hearts, their bodies to be dishonored among themselves,
25  who changed the truth of God into the lie, and worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26  Because of this, God gave them up to dishonorable passions, for even their females changed the natural use to that contrary to nature.
27  And likewise, the males also forsaking the natural use of the female burned in their lust toward one another, males with males working out shamefulness, and receiving back within themselves the reward which was fitting for their error.
28  And even as they did not think fit to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do the things not right,
29  having been filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, iniquity, covetousness, malice, being full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, evil habits, becoming whisperers,
30  slanderers, God-haters, insolent, proud, braggarts, devisers of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31  without discernment, covenant breakers, without natural affection, unforgiving, unmerciful,
32  who knowing the righteous order of God, that those practicing such things are worthy of death, not only do them, but also approve those practicing them.
