By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.
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.
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.
For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
And the way of peace have they not known:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
