The New Messianic Version of the Bible
1Sha’ul [desired], a slave of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], called [to be] an apostle, separated unto the Gospel (joyful message) of God-The Father, 2(Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) 3Concerning his Son Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] our Lord - Kurios, which was made of the seed of David [Beloved] according to the flesh; 4And declared [to be] the Son of God-The Father with power, according to the Spirit [Ruach] of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: 5By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: 6Among whom are you2f also the called of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah]:
7To all that be in Rome [strength], beloved of God-The Father, called [to be] saints: Grace to you and peace from God-The Father our Father, and the Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah].
8First, I thank my God-The Father through Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. 9For God-The Father is my witness, whom I serve with my Spirit [Ruach] in the Gospel (joyful message) of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers; 10Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God-The Father to come unto you. 11For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end you2f may be established; 12That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. 13Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but hinder (or obstruct) up to this time,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Goyim [Gentiles]. 14I am debtor both to the Greeks [unstable: miry ones], and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. 15So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the Gospel (joyful message) to you that are at Rome [strength] also.
16For I am not ashamed of the Gospel (joyful message) of Moshiach [Messiah]: for it is the power of God-The Father unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek [unstable: the miry one]. 17For in it is the righteousness of God-The Father revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18For the wrath of God-The Father is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19Because that which may be known of God-The Father is manifest in them; for God-The Father has showed [it] unto them. 20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21Because that, when they knew God-The Father, they glorified [him] not as God-The Father, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God-The Father into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24For what reason God-The Father also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God-The Father into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) forever. Amen.
26For this cause God-The Father gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And 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 inappropriate, and receiving in themselves that recompence (punishment for evil, reward) of their error which was meet.
28And even as they did not like to retain God-The Father in [their] knowledge, God-The Father gave them over to a reprobate (rejected; failing the test; lost in sin) mind, to do those things which are not convenient (fit; appropriate; proper (one’s own; peculiar; particular)); 29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30Backbiters, haters of God-The Father, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable (cannot be calmed or appeased), unmerciful: 32Who knowing the judgment of God-The Father, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
