Pawulo Ayagala Okukyala mu Ruumi

Okusooka neebaza nnyo Katonda wange ku lwammwe mwenna, ku bwa Yesu Kristo, olw’okukkiriza kwammwe okunywevu okwogerwako mu nsi yonna. Katonda gwe mpeereza n’omutima gwange gwonna nga mbulira Enjiri ey’Omwana we, ye mujulirwa wange, nga bwe mbasabira bulijjo, 10 nga mbegayiririra bulijjo mu kusaba kwange, ndyoke nsobole okubatuukako nga Katonda bw’anaayagala.

11 Kubanga neesunga nnyo okubalaba, ndyoke mbawe ku kirabo eky’omwoyo, mulyoke munywezebwe okutuuka ku nkomerero, 12 kwe kugamba: twezengamu amaanyi ffekka ne ffekka olw’okukkiriza kwe tulina. 13 Wabula njagala mumanye kino, abooluganda nti, Emirundi mingi nateekateeka okujja gye muli naye ne nziyizibwa okutuusa kaakano, ndyoke nkungule ebibala mu mmwe, nga bwe kiri mu mawanga amalala.

14 Kubanga nnina ebbanja eri Abayonaani n’abatali Bayonaani, n’eri ab’amagezi n’eri abasirusiru, 15 era nammwe ab’e Ruumi kyenva njagala okubabuulira Enjiri.

16 Enjiri tenkwasa nsonyi: kubanga ge maanyi ga Katonda agalokola buli muntu akkiriza, okusooka eri Omuyudaaya n’eri Omunnamawanga. 17 Kubanga mu yo obutuukirivu bwa Katonda bubikkulibwa. Obutuukirivu obwo butuweebwa olw’okukkiriza, olw’okukkiriza kwokka, nga bwe kyawandiikibwa nti, “Abatuukirivu banaabeeranga balamu lwa kukkiriza.”

Obusungu bwa Katonda eri abantu

18 Kubanga obusungu bwa Katonda bubikkulibbwa okuva mu ggulu ku abo abatatya Katonda bonna n’abakaafiiri bonna ku bye bakola okuziyiza amazima okuvaayo. 19 Kubanga ebisoboka okumanyibwa ku Katonda bibabikkuliddwa, kubanga Katonda abibalaze byonna mu bujjuvu. 20 Kubanga okuviira ddala ku kutondebwa kw’ensi, ebintu bye ebitalabika, bwe buyinza bwe obutaggwaawo n’obwa Katonda bwe, bitegeerwa ne birabikira ddala mu by’obutonde bwe, abantu balyoke baleme kubaako na kya kwewolereza.

21 Kubanga newaakubadde nga Katonda bamumanyi, tebaamugulumiza nga Katonda wadde okumwebazanga, naye ne bagobereranga ebitaliimu mu mpaka zaabwe, omutima gwabwe omusirusiru ne gujjuzibwa ekizikiza. 22 Beeyita ab’amagezi ne bafuuka abasirusiru, 23 ne bawanyisa ekitiibwa kya Katonda ataggwaawo okukifaananyiriza ekifaananyi ky’omuntu aggwaawo, n’eky’ebinyonyi, n’eky’ebirina amagulu ana n’eky’ebyewalula.

24 Katonda kyeyava abaleka, emitima gyabwe ne girulunkanira eby’obugwagwa ne bawemula emibiri gyabwe bokka na bokka. 25 Ne bafuula amazima ga Katonda okuba obulimba ne basinza era ne baweereza ebitonde, mu kifo ky’okusinza eyabitonda, eyeebazibwa emirembe n’emirembe. Amiina.

26 Katonda kyeyava abaleka ne beeyongera mu kwegomba kwabwe okw’obuwemu. Abakazi baabwe baawanyisa enkolagana yaabwe ey’obuzaaliranwa n’abasajja, ne bakola ebitali bya buzaaliranwa. 27 Abasajja nabo baalekayo okwegatta ne bakazi baabwe mu ngeri ey’obuzaaliranwa, ne bajjuzibwa obukaba ne beegatta ne basajja bannaabwe. N’ekyava mu bikolwa ebyo eby’obugwagwa, kwe kusasulibwa empeera esaanira okwonoona kwabwe.

28 Bwe baagaana okumanya Katonda, Katonda kyeyava abaleka ne babeera n’omutima omwonoonefu ne bakola ebitasaana. 29 Bajjuzibbwa obutali butuukirivu bwonna, n’ebibi, n’omululu, n’obukyayi, n’obuggya, n’obussi, n’entalo, n’obulimba, n’enkwe, n’okwogera ebitasaana, nga basala ku bannaabwe ebigambo, 30 era nga bageya, nga bakyawa Katonda, nga bavuma bannaabwe, nga bajjudde amalala n’okwekulumbaza, nga bagunjawo enkola y’ebikyamu, era nga bajeemera bakadde baabwe. 31 Tebategeera so tebalina kukkiriza, tebalina kwagala, era tebalina mutima gusaasira. 32 Newaakubadde nga bamanyi nga Katonda yagamba nti abantu abakola ebintu ng’ebyo balizikirizibwa, tebakoma ku kubikola kyokka, naye basiima n’abo ababikola.

Romans 1

1Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God – the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life[a] was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power[b] by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from[c] faith for his name’s sake. And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Paul’s longing to visit Rome

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world. God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you 10 in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God’s will the way may be opened for me to come to you.

11 I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift 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, brothers and sisters,[d] that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles.

14 I am a debtor 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.

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed – a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,[e] just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith.’[f]

God’s wrath against sinful humanity

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator – who is for ever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worth while to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practise them.
