1:8 First of all,21 I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed throughout the whole world. 1:9 For God, whom I serve in my spirit by preaching the gospel22 of his Son, is my witness that23 I continually remember you 1:10 and I always ask24 in my prayers, if perhaps now at last I may succeed in visiting you according to the will of God.25 1:11 For I long to see you, so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift26 to strengthen you, 1:12 that is, that we may be mutually comforted by one another’s faith,27 both yours and mine. 1:13 I do not want you to be unaware,28 brothers and sisters,29 that I often intended to come to you (and was prevented until now), so that I may have some fruit even among you, just as I already have among the rest of the Gentiles.30 1:14 I am a debtor31 both to the Greeks and to the barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. 1:15 Thus I am eager32 also to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome.33
