||For I am not ashamed of the Gospel. For it is the power of God unto salvation for all believers, the Jew first, and the Greek.
||For the justice of God is revealed within it, by faith unto faith, just as it was written: “For the just one lives by faith.”
||For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven over every impiety and injustice among those men who fend off the truth of God with injustice.
||For what is known about God is manifest in them. For God has manifested it to them.
||For unseen things about him have been made conspicuous, since the creation of the world, being understood by the things that were made; likewise his everlasting virtue and divinity, so much so that they have no excuse.
||For although they had known God, they did not glorify God, nor give thanks. Instead, they became weakened in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was obscured.
||For, while proclaiming themselves to be wise, they became foolish.
||And they exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of flying things, and of four-legged beasts, and of serpents.
||For this reason, God handed them over to the desires of their own heart for impurity, so that they afflicted their own bodies with indignities among themselves.
||And they exchanged the truth of God for a lie. And they worshipped and served the creature, rather than the Creator, who is blessed for all eternity. Amen.
