Romans 1:1-7

1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God,  2 which he promised before through his prophets in the holy Scriptures,  3 concerning his Son, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh,  4 who was declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord,  5 through whom we received grace and apostleship, for obedience of faith among all the nations, for his name's sake;  6 among whom you are also called to belong to Jesus Christ;  7 to all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
