Romans Chapter One

I really had a good time with this project. I wanted to know how many words were in Romans. So I counted them.  Then add a Strong's # on the words. I then wanted to know how many sentences in the chapter.  So I color coded the verses. And as you can see had a little fun with this project.
Now to chapter two.

[1] Paul, 3972 a servant 1401 of Jesus 2424Christ5547, called 2822to be an apostle,652 separated872 unto1519 the gospel2098of God,2316 (17)
[2] (Which3739 he had promised afore4279 by1223 his prophets4396 in 1722 the holy40 scriptures,1124) (12)
[3] Concerning4012 his846 Son5207 Jesus5207 Christ5547 our Lord2926, which3588 was made1096 of the seed4690 of David1138 according2496 to the flesh;4561 (19)
[4] And declared4112 to be the Son of God with1722 power1411, according2596 to the spirit4151 of holiness,42 by 1537the resurrection386 from the dead:3498 (21)
[5] By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name: (19)
[6] Among1722 whom3739  are2075 ye5210 also2532 the called 2822of Jesus Christ: (9)
[7] To all3956 that be5607 in Rome,4516 beloved27 of God, called to be saints:40 Grace5485 to you 5213and peace1515 from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

[8] First,4412 I thank2168 my3450 God through1223 Jesus Christ for5228 you all, that your faith4102 is spoken2605 of throughout1722 the whole world.2889 (21)

[9] For1063 God is my witness,3144 whom3739 I serve3000 with my spirit4151 in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing89 I make mention3417 of you always3842 in my prayers;4335 (29)
[10] Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you. (24)

[11] For I long 1971to see1492 you, that I may impart3330 unto you some spiritual4152 gift5486, to the end1519 ye may be established;4741 (22)
[12] That1161 is, that I may be comforted together4837 with you by the mutual240 faith41402 both of you and me.(

[13] Now1161 I would not have you ignorant,50 brethren, that oftentimes4178 I purposed4388 to come2064 unto you, (but was let hitherto,891) that I might have some fruit 2590among you also, even as among other Gentiles1484. (34)

[14] I am1510 (5748) debtor3871 both5037 to the Greeks,1672 and to the Barbarians;915 both to the wise,4680 and to the unwise453. (19)

[15] So,3779 as much2596 as in me 1691is, I am ready4289 to preach the gospel2097 to you5213 that are at Rome1722 also.  (22)

[16] For1063 I am1870 not ashamed5736 of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power1411 of God unto salvation4991 to every one3956 that believeth;4100 5723 to the Jew2453 first, and also to the Greek1672. (31)

[17] For1063 therein is the righteousness1343 of God revealed601 from faith4102 to faith: as it is written, The just1342 shall live2198 by faith.4102 (22)

[18] For the wrath3709 of God is revealed601 from575 heaven3772 against 1909all3956 ungodliness763 and unrighteousness93 of men,444 who hold2722 the truth225 in unrighteousness;  (22)
[19] Because1360 that which may be known1110 of God is manifest5318 in them; for God hath shewed5319 it unto them. (19)

[20] For the invisible things517 of him from the creation2937 of the world2889 are clearly seen2529, being understood3539 by the things that are made4161, even his eternal126 power 1411and Godhead2305; so that they are without excuse:379 (35)
[21] Because1360 that, when they knew1097 God, they glorified 1392him not as God, neither were thankful;2168 but became vain3154 in their imaginations1261, and their foolish801 heart2588 was darkened.4654 (27)

[22] Professing themselves5335 to be wise,4680 they became fools,3471 (8)
[23] And changed236 the glory1391 of the uncorruptibel862 God into an image1504 made like3667 to corruptible5349 man,444 and to birds4071, and fourfooted beasts5074, and creeping things2062.

[24] Wherefore1352 God also gave3860 them up3860 to uncleanness167 through1722 the lusts1939 of their own hearts,2588 to dishonour818 their own bodies4983 between1722 themselves1438: (22)
[25] Who changed3337 the truth225 of God into a lie,5579 and worshipped4573 and served3000 the creature2937 more than the Creator,2936 who is blessed2128 forever.281 Amen. (25)

[26] For this cause God gave them up unto vile819 affections:3806 for even their women2338 did change3337 the natural5446 use5540 into1519 that which is against3844 nature:5449 (25)
[27] And likewise3668 also the men, leaving863 the natural5446 use5540 of the woman, burned 1572in their lust3715 one toward another; men with men working2716 that which is unseemly808, and receiving618 in themselves that recompence489 of their error4106 which was meet.1163 (38)

[28] And even as they did not like to retain2192 God in their knowledge1922, God gave them over to a reprobate96 mind,3563 to do those things which are not convenient;2520 (29)
[29] Being filled with4137 all unrighteousness93, fornication,4202 wickedness,41898 covetousness4124 maliciousness;2549 full3324 of envy,5355 murder,5408 debate,2054 deceit,1388 malignity;2550 whisperers,5588 (17)
[30] Backbiters,2637 haters of God,2319 despiteful,5197 proud,5244 boasters,213 inventors2182 of evil things,2556 disobedient545 to parents,1118 (14)
[31] Without understanding,801 covenantbreakers,802 without natural affection,794 implacable,786 unmerciful:415 (8)
[32] Who3748 knowing1921 the judgment1345 of God, that they which commit4238 such things5108 are worthy514 of death,2288 not only do the same, but have pleasure4909 in them that do them. (29)
