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 neighbour for his good to edification.

15:3 For even the Messiah pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.

15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

15:5 Now the Elohim of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Messiah :

15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify , even the Father of our Saviour the Messiah.

15:7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as the Messiah also received us to the glory of .

15:8 Now I say that the Messiah was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of , to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:

15:9 And that the Gentiles might glorify for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

15:10 And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.

15:11 And again, Praise , 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 Elohim of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Set-apart Spirit.

15:14 And I myself also am persuaded of 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 unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the favour that is given to me of ,

15:16 That I should be the minister of the Messiah to the Gentiles, ministering the glad tidings of , that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Set-apart Spirit.

15:17 I have therefore whereof I may glory through the Messiah in those things which pertain to .

15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which the Messiah 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 ; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the glad tidings of the Messiah.

15:20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the glad tidings, not where the Messiah was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation:

15:21 But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: 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 unto you;

15:24 Whensoever 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 be somewhat filled with your company.

15:25 But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.

15:26 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which 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 unto them in carnal things.

15:28 When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.

15:29 And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the glad tidings of the Messiah.

15:30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Master the Messiah's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to for me;

15:31 That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;

15:32 That I may come unto you with joy by the will of , and may with you be refreshed.

15:33 Now the Elohim of peace be with you all.
