New Testament - Romans
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, The righteous shall live by faith.
22 And while they thought within themselves that they were wise, they became fools,
24 That is why God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies among themselves;
25 And they have changed the truth of God for lies, and worshipped and served the created things more than their Creator to whom belong glory and blessings for ever. Amen.
26 Therefore God has given them up to vile passions; for even their women have changed the natural use of their sex into that which is unnatural;
27 And likewise also their men have left the natural use of the women and have run wild with lust toward one another, male with male committing shameful acts, and receiving in themselves the due recompense of their error.
28 And as they did not consent in themselves to know God, God has given them over to a weak mind, to do the things which should not be done; as,
29 Being filled with all manner of iniquity, fornication, bitterness, malice, extortion, envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil thoughts.
30 They are slanderers, backbiters, haters of God, revilers, proud boasters, inventors of evil things, weak-minded, disobedient to their parents;
31 These have no respect for a covenant. They know neither love nor peace, nor is there mercy in them;
32 Knowing the judgment of God, that those who commit such things, he condemns to death, they not only do them, but also associate with those who practice them.
3 What do you think, O man? Do you think that you who judge those who practice such things, while you commit them yourself, will escape the judgment of God?
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
5 For they who are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh; but they who are after the Spirit mind the things of the Spirit.
6 To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace,
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, because it cannot be.
9 But you are not in the flesh but in the spirit, if the Spirit of God truly dwells within you. Now if any man does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to him.
12 Therefore, my brethren, we are not indebted to the flesh to live after the flesh.
13 For if you live after the flesh, you will die; but if you, through the Spirit, subdue the deeds of the body, you shall live.
14 Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.
15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage, to be in fear again; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Abon, Father, our Father.
16 And this Spirit bears witness to our spirit, that we are the children of God;
20 For man was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who gave him free will in the hope he would choose rightly,
21 Because man himself shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors in pain to this day.
20 However, O man, who are you to question God? Shall the thing formed say to him who formed it, Why have you made me like this?
21 But to Israel he said, All the day long I have stretched out my hands to a quarrelsome and disobedient people.
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, some have the gift of prophecy, according to the measure of faith,
7 Some have the gift of ministration, in their ministry; and some of teaching, in their doctrine.
8 Some of consolation, in consoling; he that gives, let him do it with sincerity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let not your love be deceitful. Abhor that which is evil; hold fast to that which is good.
10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business, fervent in spirit, serving, the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing instant in prayer.
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints, given to hospitality.
14 Bless them who persecute you; bless, and curse not.
15 Rejoice with them who rejoice, and weep with them who weep.
16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not vain glory, but associate with those who are humble. Be not wise in your own conceits.
17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. But be diligent to do good things before the presence of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather restrain your wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will execute justice for you, said the Lord.
20 Therefore if your enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink; for in so doing, you shall heap coals of fire on his head.
21 Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
7 Render therefore, to every one as is due to him, head tax to him who is in charge of head tax, duty to him who is in charge of taxes; reverence to whom reverence is due, and honor to whom honor is due.
8 Owe no man anything, but love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law,
9 Which says, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not covet; and if there is any other commandment, it is fulfilled in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
10 Love does not work evil to his neighbor, because love is the fulfillment of the law.
11 Know this also, that now is the time and the hour that we should awake from our sleep, for now our salvation is nearer than when we believed.
7 For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself.
2 Let every one of us please his neighbor in good and constructive ways.
7 Therefore be friendly and bear one anotherís burdens, just as Christ also brought you close to the glory of God.
