First, (A)I thank my God through Jesus Christ [a]for you all, because (B)your faith is being proclaimed throughout the world. For (C)God, whom I (D)serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly (E)I make mention of you, 10 always in my prayers requesting if perhaps now, at last by (F)the will of God, I will succeed in coming to you. 11 For (G)I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be [b]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 (H)I do not want you to be unaware, (I)brothers and sisters, that often I (J)have planned to come to you (and have been prevented so far) so that I may obtain some (K)fruit among you also just as among the rest of the Gentiles. 14 (L)I am [c]under obligation both to Greeks and to the [d](M)uncultured, both to the wise and to the foolish. 15 So, for my part, I am eager to (N)preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome.
