My soul doth magnify my YAH, and my spirit hath rejoiced in EL my Saviour; For HE that is mighty hath done to me great things; and Holy is HIS Name.  Now unto HIM who is ever present in my helpless estate; who is able to keep me from falling and to present me faultless before the presence of His Glory with exceeding joy, unto the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only wise EL our Saviour be honour and glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and for ever Halleluyah!


1Sha’ul, a servant of יהושע Messiah, a called emissary, separated to the Good News of Elohim,

2which He promised before through His prophets in the Set-apart Scriptures,

3concerning His Son, who came of the seed of Dawiḏ according to the flesh,

4who was designated Son of Elohim with power, according to the Set-apart Spirit, by the resurrection from the dead: יהושע Messiah, the Master of us,

5through whom we have received favour and office of the emissary for belief-obedience among all the nations on behalf of His Name,

6among whom you also are the called ones of יהושע Messiah.

7To all who are in Rome, beloved of Elohim, called, set-apart ones: Favour to you and peace from Elohim our Father and the Master יהושע Messiah.

8First, I truly thank my Elohim through יהושע Messiah for you all, that your belief is spoken of in all the world.

9For Elohim is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the Good News of His Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you,

10always asking in my prayers, if at all possible, I shall be blessed by the desire of Elohim, to come to you.

11For I long to see you, so as to impart some spiritual gift to you, for you to be established,

12and that is, to be encouraged together among you, each by the other’s belief – both yours and mine.

13And I do not wish you to be unaware, brothers, that I often purposed to come to you, but was hindered until now, in order to have some fruit among you, as also among the other gentiles.

14I am a debtor both to Greeks and to foreigners, both to wise and to foolish.

15That is why I am so eager to bring the Good News also to you who are in Rome.

16For I am not ashamed of the Good News of Messiah, for it is the power of Elohim for deliverance to everyone who believes, to the Yehuḏite first and also to the Greek.

17For in it the righteousness of Elohim is revealed from belief to belief, as it has been written, “But the righteous shall live by belief.”a

18For the wrath of Elohim is revealed from heaven against all wickedness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

19because that which is known of Elohim is manifest among them, for Elohim has manifested it to them.

20For since the creation of the world His invisible qualities have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, both His everlasting power and Mightiness, for them to be without excuse,

21because, although they knew Elohim, they did not esteem Him as Elohim, nor gave thanks, but became vain in their reasonings, and their undiscerning heart was darkened.

22Claiming to be wise, they became fools,

23and changed the esteem of the incorruptible Elohim into the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds and of four-footed beasts and of reptiles.

24Therefore Elohim gave them up to uncleanness in the lust of their hearts, to disrespect their bodies among themselves,

25who changed the truth of Elohim into the falsehood, and worshipped and served what was created rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amĕn.

26Because of this Elohim gave them over to degrading passions. For even their women exchanged natural relations for what is against nature,

27and likewise, the men also, having left natural relations with woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing indecency, and receiving back the reward which was due for their straying.

28And even as they did not think it worth- while to possess the knowledge of Elohim, Elohim gave them over to a worthless mind, to do what is improper,

29having been filled with all unrighteousness, whoring, wickedness, greed, evil; filled with envy, murder, fighting, deceit, evil habits; whisperers,

30slanderers, haters of Elohim, insolent, proud, boasters, devisers of evils, disobedient to parents,

31without discernment, covenant breakers, unloving, unforgiving, ruthless;

32who, though they know the righteousness of Elohim, that those who practise such deserve death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practise them.


1Therefore, O man, you are without excuse, everyone who judges, for in which you judge another you condemn yourself, since you who judge practise the same wrongs.

2And we know that the judgment of Elohim is according to truth against those who practise such wrongs.

3And do you think, O man, you who judge those practising such wrongs, and doing the same, that you shall escape the judgment of Elohim?

4Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, and tolerance, and patiencea, not knowing that the kindness of Elohim leads you to repentance?

5But according to your hardness and your unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of Elohim,

6who “shall render to each one according to his works”:a

7everlasting life to those who by persistence in good work seek for esteem, and respect, and incorruptibility;

8but wrath and displeasure to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness;

9affliction and distress on every human being working what is evil, of the Yehuḏite first, and also of the Greek;

10but esteem, respect, and peace to everyone working what is good, to the Yehuḏite first and also to the Greek.

11For there is no partiality with Elohim.

12For as many as sinned without Torah shall also perish without Torah, and as many as sinned in the Torah shall be judged by the Torah.

13For not the hearers of the Torah are righteous in the sight of Elohim, but the doers of the lawa shall be declared right.

14For when gentiles, who do not have the Torah, by nature do what is in the Torah, although not having the Torah, they are a Torah to themselves,

15who show the work of the Torah written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or even excusing,

16in the day when Elohim shall judge the secrets of men through יהושע Messiah, according to my Good News.

17See, you are called a Yehuḏite, and rest on the Torah, and make your boast in Elohim,

18and know the desire of Elohim, and approve what is superior, being instructed out of the Torah,

19and are trusting that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness,

20an instructor of foolish ones, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and of the truth in the Torah.a

21You, then, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who proclaim that a man should not steal, do you steal?

22You who say, “Do not commit adultery,” do you commit adultery? You who abominate idols, do you rob temples?

23You who make your boast in the Torah, through the transgression of the Torah do you disrespect Elohim?

24For “The Name of Elohim is blasphemed among the gentiles because of you,” as it has been written.

25For circumcision indeed profits if you practise the Torah, but if you are a transgressor of the Torah, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.

26So, if an uncircumcised one watches over the righteousnesses of the Torah, shall not his uncircumcision be reckoned as circumcision?

27And the uncircumcised by nature, who perfects the Torah, shall judge you who notwithstanding letter and circumcision are a transgressor of the Torah!

28For he is not a Yehuḏite who is so outwardly, neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh.

29But a Yehuḏite is he who is so inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart,a in Spirit, not literally, whose praise is not from men but from Elohim.


1What then is the advantage of the Yehuḏite, or what is the value of the circumcision?

2Much in every way! Because firstly indeed, that they were entrusted with the Words of Elohim.a

3For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief nullify the trustworthiness of Elohim?

4Let it not be! But let Elohim be true, and every man a liar, as it has been written, “That You should be declared right in Your words, and prevail in Your judging.”

5But if our unrighteousness establishes the righteousness of Elohim, what shall we say? Is Elohim unrighteous who is inflicting wrath? I speak as a man.

6Let it not be! Otherwise how shall Elohim judge the world?

7For if the truth of Elohim has increased through my lie, to His esteem, why am I also still judged as a sinner?

8And why not say, “Let us do evil so that the good might come”? – as we are wrongly accused and as some claim that we say. Their judgment is in the right.

9What then? Are we better than they? Not at all, for we have previously accused both Yehuḏim and Greeks that they are all under sin.

10As it has been written, “There is none righteous, no, not one!

11“There is no one who is understanding, there is none who is seeking Elohim.

12“They all have turned aside, they have together become worthless. There is none who does good, no, not one.”

13“Their throat is an open tomb, with their tongues they have deceived,” “The poison of adders is under their lips,”

14“Whose mouth is filled with cursing and bitterness.”

15“Their feet are swift to shed blood,

16ruin and wretchedness are in their ways,

17and the way of peace they have not known.”

18“There is no fear of Elohim before their eyes.”

19And we know that whatever the Torah says, it says to those who are in the Torah, so that every mouth might be stopped, and all the world come under judgment before Elohim.

20Therefore by works of Torah no flesh shall be declared right before Him, for by the Torah is the knowledge of sin.a

21But now, apart from the Torah, a righteousness of Elohim has been revealed, being witnessed by the Torah and the Prophets,

22and the righteousness of Elohim is through belief in יהושע Messiah to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference,

23for all have sinned and fall short of the esteem of Elohim,

24being declared right, without paying, by His favour through the redemption which is in Messiah יהושע,

25whom Elohim set forth as an atonement, through belief in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His tolerance Elohim had passed over the sins that had taken place before,

26to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He is righteous and declares righteous the one who has belief in יהושע.

27Where, then, is the boasting? It is shut out. By what Torah? Of works? No, but by the Torah of belief.

28For we reckon that a man is declared right by belief without works of Torah.

29Or is He the Elohim of the Yehuḏim only, and not also of the gentiles? Yea, of the gentiles also,

30since it is one Elohim who shall declare right the circumcised by belief and the uncircumcised through belief.

31Do we then nullify the Torah through the belief? Let it not be! On the contrary, we establish the Torah.

ACTS 20:1-3

1After the uproar had ceased, Sha’ul called the taught ones to him, and having embraced them, went away to go to Makedonia.

2And having gone through those parts, and having encouraged them with many words, he came to Greece,

3where he spent three months. When he was about to sail to Syria, he decided to return through Makedonia, as a plot was made against him by the Yehuḏim.

Y'va-re-che-cha Yahuah V'yish-mire-cha. Ya'er Yahuah panav elei-cha vihu-necha. Yi-sah Yahuah panav elei-cha, V'ya-sem l'cha shalom!

May Abba Yahuah Bless you and guard you. May the light of EL Shaddai shine upon you, and may Abba Yahuah be gracious to you. May the presence of Elohim be with you and give you peace! - Judy
