8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you,(A) because your faith is being reported all over the world.(B)9 God, whom I serve(C) in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness(D) how constantly I remember you10 in my prayers at all times;(E) and I pray that now at last by God’s will(F) the way may be opened for me to come to you.(G)
11 I long to see you(H) so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift(I) to make you strong—12 that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.13 I do not want you to be unaware,(J) brothers and sisters,[a](K) that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now)(L) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles.
14 I am obligated(M) both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish.15 That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are in Rome.(N)
