Romans 1:8-15 - Paul Wants To Visit Rome

8 First, indeed, I give thanks unto my God, through Jesus Christ, concerning you all, because your faith is being announced throughout the whole world. 9 For God is, my witness, - unto whom I am rendering divine service in my spirit, in the glad message of his Son, - how incessantly, I am making mention of you 10 At all times in my prayers, - making supplication - if, by some means, even now, at any time, I may have a way opened, in the will of God, to come unto you; 11 For I am longing to see you, that I may impart some spiritual gift unto you, to the end ye may be established, - 12 That is to say - there may be a mutual encouragement among you, each by the other's faith, both yours and mine.

13 I do not wish however that ye should be ignorant, brethren, that, many times, have I purposed to come unto you, but have been hindered, until the present, - in order that, some fruit, I might have among you also, even as among the other nations, 14 Both to Greeks and to Barbarians, both to wise and to unwise, a debtor, I am: 15 Thus, the eagerness on my part - unto you also who are in Rome, to announce the joyful message.
