D. Proclaimed with Eagerness
and Partaken of by Faith
8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all because your afaith is proclaimed throughout the whole world.
9 For God is my witness, whom I 1serve in my 2spirit in the gospel of His Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you always in my prayers,
10 Beseeching if by any means now at last I may be prospered in the will of God to come to you.
11 For I long to see you that I may impart to you some spiritual gift so that you may be aestablished;
12 That is, that I with you may be 1encouraged among you through the faith which is in one another, both yours and mine.
13 And I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, that often I apurposed to come to you (yet was hindered until the present), that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among the rest of the Gentiles.
14 I am debtor both to Greeks and to 1barbarians, both to wise and to foolish;
15 So, for my part, I am ready to announce the gospel to you also who are in Rome.
