Romans 1:13-17Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
13 Now I want you to know,[a] brothers, that I often planned to come to you (but was prevented until now) in order that I might have a fruitful ministry[b] among you, just as among the rest of the Gentiles. 14 I am obligated both to Greeks and barbarians,[c] both to the wise and the foolish. 15 So I am eager to preach the good news to you also who are in Rome.
The Righteous Will Live by Faith
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel,[d] because it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. 17 For in it God’s righteousness is revealed from faith to faith,[e] just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.[f][g]
