Romans 15


15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of
 the weak, and not to please ourselves.
15:2 Let every one of us please [his] neighbor for [his] good
 to edification.
15:3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written,
 The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
15:4 For whatever things were written formerly, were written for
 our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the
 scriptures might have hope.
15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be
 like-minded one towards another according to Christ Jesus:
15:6 That ye may with one mind [and] one mouth glorify God, even
 the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received
 us to the glory of God.
15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the
 circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises
 [made] to the fathers:
15:9 And that the Gentiles might glorify God for [his] mercy; as
 it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the
 Gentiles, and sing to thy name.
15:10 And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.
15:11 And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him,
 all ye people.
15:12 And again Isaiah saith, There shall be a root of Jesse,
 and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall
 the Gentiles trust.
15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in
 believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the
 Holy Spirit.
15:14 And I myself also am persuaded concerning you, my
 brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all
 knowledge, able also to admonish one another.
15:15 Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly to
 you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace
 that is given to me from God.
15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the
 Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up
 of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the
 Holy Spirit.
15:17 I have therefore cause for glorying through Jesus Christ,
 in those things which pertain to God.
15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which
 Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient,
 by word and deed,
15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the
 Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and around to Illyricum,
 I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
15:20 And so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where
 Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's
 foundation:
15:21 But as it is written, They shall see to whom he was not
 spoken of: and they that have not heard shall understand.
15:22 For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming
 to you.
15:23 But now having no more place in these parts, and having a
 great desire these many years to come to you;
15:24 Whenever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you:
 for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my
 way thitherward by you, if first I shall be somewhat filled
 with your [company].
15:25 But now I go to Jerusalem to minister to the saints.
15:26 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a
 certain contribution for the poor of the saints who are at
 Jerusalem.
15:27 It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are.
 For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual
 things, their duty is also to minister to them in carnal
 things.
15:28 When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to
 them this fruit, I will go by you into Spain.
15:29 And I am sure that when I come to you, I shall come in the
 fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.
15:30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's
 sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together
 with me in [your] prayers to God for me;
15:31 That I may be delivered from them in Judea who do not
 believe; and that my service which [I have] for Jerusalem, may
 be acceptable to the saints;
15:32 That I may come to you with joy by the will of God, and
 may with you be refreshed.
15:33 Now the God of peace [be] with you all. Amen.
