Ro 1:1

1:1 Paul, {1} a {2} {a} servant of Jesus Christ, called [to be] an {b} apostle, {c} separated unto the gospel of God,

 

Ro 1:3

1:3 {3} Concerning his {d} Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was {e} made of the seed of David {f} according to the flesh;

 

Ro 1:4

1:4 And {g} declared [to be] the Son of God with {h} power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

 

Ro 1:5

1:5 {i} By whom we have received {k} grace and apostleship, for {l} obedience to the faith {m} among all nations, for his name:

 

Ro 1:6

1:6 Among whom are ye also the {n} called of Jesus Christ:

 

Ro 1:7

1:7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called [to be] saints: {o} Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Ro 1:8

1:8 {4} First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is {p} spoken of throughout the {q} whole world.

 

Ro 1:9

1:9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my {r} spirit in the {s} gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

 

Ro 1:12

1:12 That is, that {t} I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

 

Ro 1:15

1:15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at {u} Rome also.

 

Ro 1:16

1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: {5} for it is the {x} power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the {y} Greek.

 

Ro 1:17

1:17 {6} For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from {z} faith to faith: {7} as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

 

Ro 1:18

1:18 {8} For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against {a} all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the {b} truth in unrighteousness;

 

Ro 1:19

1:19 {9} Because that which may be known of God is manifest in {c} them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.

 

Ro 1:20

1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being {d} understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

 

Ro 1:21

1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they {e} glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became {f} vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

 

Ro 1:22

1:22 {g} Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

 

Ro 1:23

1:23 And changed the glory of the {h} uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

 

Ro 1:24

1:24 {10} Wherefore {i} God also {k} gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

 

Ro 1:27

1:27 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 {l} recompence of their error which was meet.

 

Ro 1:28

1:28 {11} And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a {m} reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

 

Ro 1:31

1:31 Without understanding, {n} covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

 

Ro 1:32

1:32 Who knowing the {o} judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but {p} have pleasure in them that do them.

 

Ro 2:1

2:1 Therefore {1} thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

 

Ro 2:2

2:2 But we {a} are sure that the judgment of God is according to {b} truth against them which commit such things.

 

Ro 2:4

2:4 {2} Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

 

Ro 2:5

2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart {c} treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

 

Ro 2:6

2:6 {3} Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

 

Ro 2:7

2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for {d} glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

 

Ro 2:8

2:8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the {e} truth, but obey unrighteousness, {f} indignation and wrath,

 

Ro 2:11

2:11 For there is no {g} respect of persons with God.

 

Ro 2:12

2:12 {4} 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;

 

Ro 2:13

2:13 {5} (For not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be {h} justified.

 

Ro 2:14

2:14 {6} For when the Gentiles, which have {i} not the law, do by {k} nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

 

Ro 2:15

2:15 Which shew the work of the law {l} written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and [their] thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

 

Ro 2:16

2:16 {7} In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to {m} my gospel.

 

Ro 2:17

2:17 {8} Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,

 

Ro 2:18

2:18 And knowest [his] will, and {n} approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;

 

Ro 2:20

2:20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the {o} form of knowledge and of the truth in the {p} law.

 

Ro 2:25

2:25 {9} For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.

 

Ro 2:26

2:26 Therefore if the {q} uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his {r} uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?

 

Ro 2:27

2:27 And shall not {s} uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the {t} letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?

 

Ro 2:28

2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one {u} outwardly; neither [is that] circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

 

Ro 2:29

2:29 But he [is] a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision [is that] of the heart, in the {x} spirit, [and] not in the letter; whose praise [is] not of men, but of God.

 

Ro 3:1

3:1 What {1} advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit [is there] of circumcision?

 

Ro 3:2

3:2 Much every way: {a} chiefly, because that unto them were committed the {b} oracles of God.

 

Ro 3:3

3:3 For what if some did not {c} believe? shall their unbelief make the {d} faith of God without effect?

 

Ro 3:4

3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be {e} justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome {f} when thou art judged.

 

Ro 3:5

3:5 {2} But if our {g} unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? [Is] God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as {h} a man)

 

Ro 3:7

3:7 {3} For if the {i} truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

 

Ro 3:9

3:9 {4} What then? are we better [than they]? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all {k} under sin;

 

Ro 3:17

3:17 And the {l} way of peace have they not known:

 

Ro 3:19

3:19 {5} Now we know that what things soever the {m} law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that {6} every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become {n} guilty before God.

 

Ro 3:20

3:20 Therefore by the {o} deeds of the law there shall no {p} flesh be {q} justified in his {r} sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin.

 

Ro 3:21

3:21 {7} But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

 

Ro 3:22

3:22 {8} Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of {s} Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

 

Ro 3:23

3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the {t} glory of God;

 

Ro 3:24

3:24 {9} Being justified {u} freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ:

 

Ro 3:25

3:25 {10} Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his {x} blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that {y} are past, through the {z} forbearance of God;

 

Ro 3:26

3:26 To declare, [I say], {a} at this time his righteousness: that he might be {b} just, and the {c} justifier of him which {d} believeth in Jesus.

 

Ro 3:27

3:27 {11} Where [is] boasting then? It is excluded. By what {e} law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

 

Ro 3:29

3:29 {12} [Is he] the God of the {f} Jews only? [is he] not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:

 

Ro 3:30

3:30 Seeing [it is] one God, which shall justify {g} the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

 

Ro 3:31

3:31 {13} Do we then make {h} void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we {i} establish the law.

 

Ro 4:1

4:1 What {1} shall we then say that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the {a} flesh, hath found?

 

Ro 4:2

4:2 {2} For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath [whereof] to glory; but not before God.

 

Ro 4:3

4:3 {3} For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

 

Ro 4:4

4:4 {4} Now to him that {b} worketh is the reward not {c} reckoned of grace, but of debt.

 

Ro 4:5

4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that {d} justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

 

Ro 4:6

4:6 {5} Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

 

Ro 4:9

4:9 {6} [Cometh] this {e} blessedness then upon the circumcision [only], or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.

 

Ro 4:10

4:10 {7} How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.

 

Ro 4:11

4:11 {8} And he received the {f} sign of circumcision, a {g} seal of the righteousness of the faith which [he had yet] being uncircumcised: {9} that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

 

Ro 4:12

4:12 {10} And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which [he had] being [yet] uncircumcised.

 

Ro 4:13

4:13 {11} For the promise, that he should be the {h} heir of the world, [was] not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the {i} law, but through the righteousness of faith.

 

Ro 4:14

4:14 {12} For if they which are of the {k} law [be] heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:

 

Ro 4:15

4:15 {13} Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, [there is] no transgression.

 

Ro 4:16

4:16 {14} Therefore [it is] of faith, that [it might be] by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the {l} seed; {15} not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

 

Ro 4:17

4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a {16} father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] {m} God, who {n} quickeneth the dead, and {o} calleth those things which be not as though they were.

 

Ro 4:18

4:18 {17} Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

 

Ro 4:19

4:19 And being {p} not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now {q} dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb:

 

Ro 4:20

4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving {r} glory to God;

 

Ro 4:21

4:21 And being {s} fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

 

Ro 4:23

4:23 {18} Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;

 

Ro 4:25

4:25 Who was delivered for our {t} offences, and was raised again for our justification.

 

Ro 5:1

5:1 Therefore being {1} justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

 

Ro 5:2

5:2 {2} By whom also we {a} have access by faith into this grace {b} wherein we {c} stand, {3} and {d} rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 

Ro 5:3

5:3 {4} And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: {5} knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

 

Ro 5:5

5:5 {6} And hope maketh not ashamed; because the {e} love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

 

Ro 5:6

5:6 {7} For when we were yet without strength, in due {f} time Christ died for the ungodly.

 

Ro 5:7

5:7 {8} For scarcely {g} for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

 

Ro 5:8

5:8 But God {h} commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet {i} sinners, Christ died for us.

 

Ro 5:9

5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from {k} wrath through him.

 

Ro 5:11

5:11 {9} And not only [so], but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

 

Ro 5:12

5:12 {10} Wherefore, as by {l} one man {m} sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, {n} for that all have sinned:

 

Ro 5:13

5:13 {11} (For until {o} the law sin was in the world: but sin is not {p} imputed when there is no law.

 

Ro 5:14

5:14 {12} Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over {q} them that had not sinned after the {r} similitude of Adam's transgression, {13} who is the figure of him that was to come.

 

Ro 5:15

5:15 {14} But not as the offence, so also [is] the free gift. For if through the offence of {s} one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, [which is] by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

 

Ro 5:16

5:16 {15} And not as [it was] by one that sinned, [so is] the gift: for the judgment [was] by one to condemnation, but the free gift [is] of many offences unto {t} justification.

 

Ro 5:17

5:17 {16} For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall {u} reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

 

Ro 5:18

5:18 {17} Therefore as by the offence of one [judgment came] upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [the free gift came] upon all men unto {x} justification of life.

 

Ro 5:19

5:19 {18} For as by one man's {y} disobedience {z} many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

 

Ro 5:20

5:20 {19} Moreover the law {a} entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more {b} abound:

 

Ro 6:1

6:1 What {1} shall we say then? Shall we continue in {a} sin, that grace may abound?

 

Ro 6:2

6:2 God forbid. {2} How shall we, that are {b} dead to sin, live any longer therein?

 

Ro 6:3

6:3 {3} Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into {c} Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

 

Ro 6:4

6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead {d} by the glory of the Father, even so {e} we also should walk in newness of life.

 

Ro 6:5

6:5 {4} For if we have been planted together in the {f} likeness of his death, we shall {g} be also [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection:

 

Ro 6:6

6:6 Knowing this, that our {h} old man is crucified with {i} [him], that the {k} body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not {l} serve sin.

 

Ro 6:7

6:7 {5} For he that is dead is freed from sin.

 

Ro 6:10

6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin {m} once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto {n} God.

 

Ro 6:12

6:12 {6} Let not sin therefore {o} reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

 

Ro 6:13

6:13 Neither {p} yield ye your {q} members [as] {r} instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness unto God.

 

Ro 6:14

6:14 {7} For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

 

Ro 6:15

6:15 {8} What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

 

Ro 6:17

6:17 {9} But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that {s} form of doctrine which was delivered you.

 

Ro 6:20

6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were {t} free from righteousness.

 

Ro 6:21

6:21 {10} What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the {u} end of those things [is] death.

 

Ro 6:23

6:23 {11} For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Ro 7:1

7:1 Know {1} ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?

 

Ro 7:3

7:3 So then if, while [her] husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be {a} called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

 

Ro 7:4

7:4 {2} Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the {b} body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, [even] to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth {c} fruit unto {d} God.

 

Ro 7:5

7:5 {3} For when we {e} were in the flesh, the {f} motions of sins, which were by the {g} law, did {h} work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

 

Ro 7:6

7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that {i} being dead {k} wherein we were {l} held; that we should serve in {m} newness of spirit, and not [in] the oldness of the {n} letter.

 

Ro 7:7

7:7 {4} What shall we say then? [Is] the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known {o} lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.

 

Ro 7:8

7:8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin [was] {p} dead.

 

Ro 7:9

7:9 {5} For I was alive without the {q} law once: but when the commandment {r} came, sin revived, and I {s} died.

 

Ro 7:12

7:12 {6} Wherefore the law [is] holy, and the {t} commandment holy, and just, and good.

 

Ro 7:13

7:13 {7} Was then that which is good {u} made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might {x} appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might {y} become exceeding sinful.

 

Ro 7:14

7:14 {8} For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

 

Ro 7:15

7:15 {9} For that which I do I {10} allow not: for what I {11} would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

 

Ro 7:17

7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but {z} sin that dwelleth in me.

 

Ro 7:18

7:18 {12} For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but {a} [how] to perform that which is good I find not.

 

Ro 7:21

7:21 {13} I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

 

Ro 7:22

7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the {b} inward man:

 

Ro 7:23

7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my {c} mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

 

Ro 7:24

7:24 {14} O {d} wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

 

Ro 7:25

7:25 I {e} thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I {f} myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

 

Ro 8:1

8:1 [There is] {1} therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who {2} walk not after the {a} flesh, but after the Spirit.

 

Ro 8:2

8:2 {3} For the {b} law of the Spirit of {c} life in {d} Christ Jesus hath {e} made me free from the law of sin and death.

 

Ro 8:3

8:3 {4} For what the law {f} could not do, in that it was weak through the {g} flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of {h} sinful flesh, and for {i} sin, {k} condemned sin in the flesh:

 

Ro 8:4

8:4 That the {l} righteousness of the law might be fulfilled {5} in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 

Ro 8:5

8:5 {6} For they that are after the {m} flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

 

Ro 8:6

8:6 {7} For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace.

 

Ro 8:7

8:7 {8} Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: {9} for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

 

Ro 8:8

8:8 {10} So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

 

Ro 8:9

8:9 {11} 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.

 

Ro 8:10

8:10 {12} And if Christ [be] in you, the {n} body [is] dead because of sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness.

 

Ro 8:11

8:11 {13} But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that {o} dwelleth in you.

 

Ro 8:12

8:12 {14} Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

 

Ro 8:13

8:13 {15} For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

 

Ro 8:14

8:14 {16} For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

 

Ro 8:15

8:15 {17} For ye have not received the {p} spirit of bondage again {q} to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of {r} adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

 

Ro 8:17

8:17 {18} And if children, then {s} heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; {19} if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together.

 

Ro 8:18

8:18 {20} For I {t} reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

 

Ro 8:19

8:19 {21} For the earnest expectation of the {u} creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

 

Ro 8:20

8:20 For the creature was made subject to {x} vanity, not {y} willingly, but by reason {z} of him who hath subjected [the same] in {a} hope,

 

Ro 8:21

8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the {b} bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

 

Ro 8:22

8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and {c} travaileth in pain together until now.

 

Ro 8:23

8:23 {22} And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within {d} ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], {e} the redemption of our body.

 

Ro 8:24

8:24 {23} For we are saved by hope: but {f} hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

 

Ro 8:26

8:26 {24} Likewise the Spirit also {g} helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh {h} intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

 

Ro 8:27

8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the {i} mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints {k} according to [the will of] God.

 

Ro 8:28

8:28 {25} And we know that {l} all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] {m} purpose.

 

Ro 8:30

8:30 Moreover whom he did {n} predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

 

Ro 8:31

8:31 {26} What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?

 

Ro 8:32

8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely {o} give us all things?

 

Ro 8:33

8:33 {27} Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? [It is] {p} God that justifieth.

 

Ro 8:35

8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of {q} Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

 

Ro 8:37

8:37 {r} Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

 

Ro 9:1

9:1 I say {1} the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,

 

Ro 9:3

9:3 For I could wish that myself were {a} accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the {b} flesh:

 

Ro 9:4

9:4 Who are Israelites; to whom [pertaineth] the adoption, and the {c} glory, and the {d} covenants, and the giving of the {e} law, and the {f} service [of God], and the {g} promises;

 

Ro 9:5

9:5 Whose [are] the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ [came], {2} who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

 

Ro 9:6

9:6 {3} Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they [are] not all {h} Israel, which are of Israel:

 

Ro 9:7

9:7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, [are they] all children: {4} but, In {i} Isaac shall thy seed be called.

 

Ro 9:8

9:8 {5} That is, They which are the children of the {k} flesh, these [are] not the children of God: but the children of the {l} promise are counted for the seed.

 

Ro 9:9

9:9 {6} For this [is] the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.

 

Ro 9:10

9:10 {7} And not only [this]; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, [even] by our father Isaac;

 

Ro 9:11

9:11 (For [the children] being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the {m} purpose of God according to election might {8} stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)

 

Ro 9:12

9:12 {9} It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

 

Ro 9:14

9:14 {10} What shall we say then? [Is there] {n} unrighteousness with God? God forbid.

 

Ro 9:15

9:15 {11} For he saith to Moses, I will {o} have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have {p} compassion on whom I will have compassion.

 

Ro 9:16

9:16 {12} So then [it is] not of him that {q} willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

 

Ro 9:17

9:17 {13} For the {r} scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I {s} raised thee up, that I might {14} shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.

 

Ro 9:18

9:18 {15} Therefore hath he mercy on whom he {t} will [have mercy], and whom he will he hardeneth.

 

Ro 9:19

9:19 {16} Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?

 

Ro 9:20

9:20 {17} Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? {18} Shall the thing {u} formed say to him that formed [it], Why hast thou made me thus?

 

Ro 9:21

9:21 {19} Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one {20} vessel unto {x} honour, and another unto {21} dishonour?

 

Ro 9:22

9:22 {22} [What] if God, willing to shew [his] wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the {y} vessels of wrath fitted to {23} destruction:

 

Ro 9:23

9:23 And that he might make known the {z} riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,

 

Ro 9:24

9:24 {24} Even us, whom he hath called, not of the {a} Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

 

Ro 9:25

9:25 {25} As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

 

Ro 9:27

9:27 {26} Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:

 

Ro 9:28

9:28 For he will finish the work, and cut [it] {b} short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.

 

Ro 9:29

9:29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of {c} Sabaoth had left us a {d} seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.

 

Ro 9:30

9:30 {27} What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed {e} not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.

 

Ro 9:31

9:31 {28} But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.

 

Ro 9:32

9:32 Wherefore? Because [they sought it] not by faith, but as it were by the {s} works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;

 

Ro 10:1

10:1 Brethren, {1} my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

 

Ro 10:3

10:3 {2} For they {a} being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to {b} establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

 

Ro 10:4

10:4 {3} For Christ [is] the {c} end of the law for righteousness to {d} every one that believeth.

 

Ro 10:5

10:5 {4} For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.

 

Ro 10:6

10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, {e} Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down [from above]:)

 

Ro 10:8

10:8 {5} But what saith it? The {f} word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

 

Ro 10:9

10:9 {6} That if thou shalt {g} confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that {h} God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

 

Ro 10:10

10:10 For with the heart man {i} believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

Ro 10:11

10:11 {7} For the scripture saith, Whosoever {k} believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

 

Ro 10:13

10:13 {8} For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

Ro 10:14

10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? {9} and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

 

Ro 10:16

10:16 {10} But they have not {l} all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

 

Ro 10:17

10:17 {11} So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the {m} word of God.

 

Ro 10:18

10:18 {12} But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

 

Ro 10:19

10:19 {13} But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by {n} [them that are] no people, [and] by a foolish nation I will anger you.

 

Ro 10:20

10:20 But Esaias is very {o} bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.

 

Ro 11:1

11:1 I say then, {1} Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For {2} I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, [of] the tribe of Benjamin.

 

Ro 11:2

11:2 {3} God hath not cast away his people which he {a} foreknew. {4} Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

 

Ro 11:4

11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have {b} reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to [the image of] {c} Baal.

 

Ro 11:5

11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the {d} election of grace.

 

Ro 11:6

11:6 {5} And if by grace, then [is it] {e} no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if [it be] of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

 

Ro 11:7

11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were {f} blinded

 

Ro 11:8

11:8 {6} (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of {g} slumber, eyes that they {h} should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

 

Ro 11:9

11:9 And David saith, {i} Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:

 

Ro 11:11

11:11 {7} I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but [rather] through their fall salvation [is come] unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

 

Ro 11:12

11:12 Now if the fall of them [be] the {k} riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their {l} fulness?

 

Ro 11:13

11:13 {8} For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, {m} I magnify mine office:

 

Ro 11:15

11:15 For if the casting away of them [be] the reconciling of the world, what [shall] the receiving [of them be], {n} but life from the dead?

 

Ro 11:16

11:16 {9} For if the {o} firstfruit [be] holy, the lump [is] also [holy]: and if the root {p} [be] holy, so [are] the branches.

 

Ro 11:17

11:17 {10} And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in {q} among them, and with them {r} partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

 

Ro 11:18

11:18 {s} Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

 

Ro 11:20

11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but {t} fear:

 

Ro 11:21

11:21 For if God spared not the {u} natural branches, [take heed] lest he also spare not thee.

 

Ro 11:22

11:22 {11} Behold therefore the {x} goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in [his] {y} goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

 

Ro 11:23

11:23 {12} And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

 

Ro 11:24

11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by {z} nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a {a} good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural [branches], be graffed into their own olive tree?

 

Ro 11:25

11:25 {13} For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your {b} own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be {c} come in.

 

Ro 11:28

11:28 {14} As concerning the {d} gospel, [they are] enemies for your sakes: but as touching the {e} election, [they are] beloved for the fathers' sakes.

 

Ro 11:29

11:29 {15} For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance.

 

Ro 11:30

11:30 {16} For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

 

Ro 11:32

11:32 For God hath concluded them {f} all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

 

Ro 11:33

11:33 {17} O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable [are] his {g} judgments, and his {h} ways past finding out!

 

Ro 11:34

11:34 {18} For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

 

Ro 11:35

11:35 Or who hath {i} first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

 

Ro 11:36

11:36 For of him, and through him, and to {k} him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory for ever. Amen.

 

Ro 12:1

12:1 I beseech {1} you therefore, brethren, {a} by the mercies of God, that ye {b} present your {c} bodies a {d} living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your {e} reasonable service.

 

Ro 12:2

12:2 {2} And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your {f} mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 

Ro 12:3

12:3 {3} For I {g} say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not {h} to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think {i} soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of {k} faith.

 

Ro 12:4

12:4 {4} For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:

 

Ro 12:6

12:6 {5} Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, [let us prophesy] according to the {l} proportion of faith;

 

Ro 12:7

12:7 Or ministry, [let us wait] on [our] ministering: or he that {m} teacheth, on teaching;

 

Ro 12:8

12:8 Or he that {n} exhorteth, on exhortation: he that {o} giveth, [let him do it] with simplicity; he that {p} ruleth, with diligence; he that {q} sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

 

Ro 12:9

12:9 {6} [Let] love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

 

Ro 12:11

12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; {r} serving the Lord;

 

Ro 12:12

12:12 {7} Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

 

Ro 12:13

12:13 {s} Distributing to the {t} necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

 

Ro 12:16

12:16 [Be] of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of {u} low estate. Be not {x} wise in your own conceits.

 

Ro 12:20

12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap {y} coals of fire on his head.

 

Ro 13:1

13:1 Let {1} every {a} soul be subject unto the higher {2} powers. {3} For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are {b} ordained of God.

 

Ro 13:3

13:3 {4} For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. {5} Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

 

Ro 13:4

13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. {6} But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a {c} revenger to [execute] wrath upon him that doeth evil.

 

Ro 13:5

13:5 {7} Wherefore [ye] must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but {d} also for conscience sake.

 

Ro 13:6

13:6 {8} For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

 

Ro 13:7

13:7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute [is due]; custom to whom custom; fear to whom {e} fear; honour to whom {f} honour.

 

Ro 13:8

13:8 {9} Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: {10} for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the {g} law.

 

Ro 13:9

13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if [there be] any other commandment, it is {h} briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

 

Ro 13:11

13:11 {11} And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed.

 

Ro 13:12

13:12 The night is far spent, the day is {i} at hand: let us therefore cast off the works {k} of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

 

Ro 13:14

13:14 But {l} put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to [fulfil] the lusts [thereof].

 

Ro 14:1

14:1 Him {1} that is weak in the faith {a} receive ye, [but] not to {b} doubtful disputations.

 

Ro 14:2

14:2 {2} For one {c} believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.

 

Ro 14:3

14:3 {3} Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for {4} God hath received him.

 

Ro 14:4

14:4 {5} Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.

 

Ro 14:5

14:5 {6} One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day [alike]. {7} Let {d} every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

 

Ro 14:6

14:6 {8} He that {e} regardeth the day, regardeth [it] unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the {f} Lord he doth not regard [it]. He that {g} eateth, eateth to the Lord, {9} for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth {h} not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

 

Ro 14:7

14:7 {10} For none of us liveth to {i} himself, and no man dieth to himself.

 

Ro 14:10

14:10 {11} But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

 

Ro 14:11

14:11 For it is written, [As] I {k} live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall {l} confess to God.

 

Ro 14:13

14:13 {12} Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge {m} this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in [his] brother's way.

 

Ro 14:14

14:14 {13} I know, and am persuaded by the {n} Lord Jesus, that [there is] nothing unclean of {o} itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him [it is] unclean.

 

Ro 14:15

14:15 But if thy brother be grieved with [thy] meat, now walkest thou not charitably. {14} Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom {15} Christ died.

 

Ro 14:16

14:16 {16} Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

 

Ro 14:17

14:17 {17} For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

 

Ro 14:18

14:18 For he that in {p} these things serveth Christ [is] acceptable to God, and approved of men.

 

Ro 14:19

14:19 {18} Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

 

Ro 14:22

14:22 {19} Hast thou {q} faith? have [it] to thyself before God. Happy [is] he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he {r} alloweth.

 

Ro 14:23

14:23 And he that {s} doubteth is damned if he eat, because [he eateth] not of faith: for whatsoever [is] not of faith is sin.

 

Ro 15:1

15:1 We {1} then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to {a} please ourselves.

 

Ro 15:2

15:2 Let every one of us please [his] neighbour for [his] {b} good to edification.

 

Ro 15:3

15:3 {2} For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.

 

Ro 15:4

15:4 {3} For whatsoever things were written {c} aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the {d} scriptures might have hope.

 

Ro 15:5

15:5 {4} Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:

 

Ro 15:7

15:7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also {e} received us to the glory of God.

 

Ro 15:8

15:8 {5} Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the {f} circumcision for the {g} truth of God, to confirm the promises [made] unto the fathers:

 

Ro 15:9

15:9 {6} And that the Gentiles might glorify God for [his] mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will {h} confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

 

Ro 15:13

15:13 {7} Now the God of {i} hope fill you with {k} all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

 

Ro 15:14

15:14 {8} And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that {l} ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.

 

Ro 15:16

15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the {m} offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

 

Ro 15:17

15:17 {9} I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.

 

Ro 15:18

15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which {n} Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,

 

Ro 15:19

15:19 Through {o} mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

 

Ro 15:22

15:22 {10} For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you.

 

Ro 15:25

15:25 But now I go unto Jerusalem to {p} minister unto the saints.

 

Ro 15:27

15:27 {11} It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to {q} minister unto them in carnal things.

 

Ro 15:28

15:28 When therefore I have performed this, and have {r} sealed to them this {s} fruit, I will come by you into Spain.

 

Ro 15:29

15:29 {12} And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.

 

Ro 15:30

15:30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the {t} love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in [your] prayers to God for me;

 

Ro 16:1

16:1 I {1} commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:

 

Ro 16:2

16:2 That ye receive her in the {a} Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.

 

Ro 16:5

16:5 Likewise [greet] the {b} church that is in their house. Salute my wellbeloved Epaenetus, who is the {c} firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.

 

Ro 16:7

16:7 Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in {d} Christ before me.

 

Ro 16:16

16:16 Salute one another with an holy {e} kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.

 

Ro 16:17

16:17 {2} Now I beseech you, brethren, {f} mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

 

Ro 16:18

16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by {g} good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

 

Ro 16:19

16:19 {3} For your obedience is come abroad unto all [men]. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you {h} wise unto that which is good, and {i} simple concerning evil.

 

Ro 16:20
