Romans 1:1-7 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Paul, the servant of Jesus Christ, called an apostle, separated into the gospel of God [parted into the gospel of God];

which he had promised before by his prophets in holy scriptures

of his Son, which is made to him of the seed of David by the flesh, [of his Son, the which is made of the seed of David after the flesh,]

and he was before-ordained the Son of God in virtue, by the Spirit of hallowing of the again-rising of dead men, of Jesus Christ our Lord[a]

by whom we have received grace and the office of apostle [by whom we have received grace and apostlehood, or state of apostle], to obey to the faith in all folks for his name,

among which ye be also called of Jesus Christ,

to all that be at Rome, darlings of God, and called holy, grace to you [to all that be at Rome, the loved of God, called holy, grace be to you], and peace of God our Father, and of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 1:1-7 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Paul declares his love for the Romans, shows what the gospel is with the fruit of it, and reproves the base nature of the flesh.

Paul, the servant of Jesus Christ called to be an apostle, put apart to preach the gospel of God – the gospel that he promised before by his prophets in the holy scriptures that speak of his Son, who was begotten of the seed of David as to the flesh, and was with power identified as the Son of God by the Holy Spirit, who sanctifies since the time that Jesus Christ our Lord rose up from death. By him we have received grace and apostleship to bring all manner of heathen peoples to the obedience of faith, which is in his name. Of such peoples you are a part also, who are Jesus Christ’s by calling.

To all you of Rome, beloved of God and saints by calling. Grace be with you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 1:1-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

The Epistle of the Apostle Paul to the Romans

1 He first showeth on what authority his Apostleship standeth. 15 Then he commendeth the Gospel, 16 by which God setteth out his power to those that are saved, 17 by faith, 21 but were guilty of wicked unthankfulness to God: 26 For which his wrath was worthily powered on them, 29 so that they ran headlong to all kinds of sin.

PAUL [a]a [b][c]servant of JESUS Christ called to be an [d]Apostle, [e]put apart to preach the Gospel of God,

(Which he had promised afore by his Prophets in the holy Scriptures)

[f]Concerning his [g]Son Jesus Christ our Lord (which was [h]made of the seed of David [i]according to the flesh,

And [j]declared [k]mightily to be the Son of God, touching the Spirit of sanctification by the resurrection from the dead)

[l]By whom we have received [m]grace and Apostleship (that [n]obedience might be given unto the faith) for his name [o]among all the Gentiles,

Among whom ye be also the [p]called of Jesus Christ:

To all you that be at Rome beloved of God, called to be Saints: [q]Grace be with you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
