Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Let each one of us please his neighbor for that which is good, to be building him up.
For Messiah also didn't please himself. But, as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me."
For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that through patience and through comfort of the Scriptures we might have hope.
Now the God of patience and of comfort grant you to be of the same mind one with another according to Messiah Yeshua,
that with one accord you may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
Therefore receive one another, even as Messiah also received you, to the glory of God.
Now I say that Messiah has been made a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, that he might confirm the promises given to the fathers,
and that the Goyim might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, "Therefore will I give praise to you among the Goyim, And sing to your name."
Again he says, "Rejoice, you Goyim, with his people."
Again, "Praise the Lord, all you Goyim! Let all the peoples praise him."
Again, Yesha`yahu says, "There will be the root of Yishai, He who arises to rule over the Goyim; On him will the Goyim hope."
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and shalom in believing, that you may abound in hope, in the power of the Ruach HaKodesh.
I myself am also persuaded about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish others.
But I write the more boldly to you in some measure, as putting you again in memory, because of the grace that was given to me by God,
that I should be a servant of Messiah Yeshua to the Goyim, serving the Good News of God, that the offering up of the Goyim might be made acceptable, being sanctified by the Ruach HaKodesh.
I have therefore my boasting in Messiah Yeshua in things pertaining to God.
For I will not dare to speak of any things except those which Messiah worked through me, for the obedience of the Goyim, by word and deed,
in the power of signs and wonders, in the power of God's Spirit; so that from Yerushalayim, and around as far as to Illyricum, I have fully preached the Good News of Messiah;
yes, making it my aim so to preach the Good News, not where Messiah was already named, that I might not build on another man's foundation.
But, as it is written, "They will see, to whom no news of him came. They who haven't heard will understand."
Therefore also I was hindered these many times from coming to you,
but now, no longer having any place in these regions, and having these many years a longing to come to you,
whenever I journey to Spain, I will come to you. For I hope to see you on my journey, and to be helped on my way there by you, if first I may enjoy your company for a while.
But now, I say, I am going to Yerushalayim, serving the holy ones.
For it has been the good pleasure of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the holy ones who are at Yerushalayim.
Yes, it has been their good pleasure, and they are their debtors. For if the Goyim have been made partakers of their spiritual things, they owe it to them also to serve them in fleshly things.
When therefore I have accomplished this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will go on by you to Spain.
I know that, when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of the Good News of Messiah.
Now I beg you, brothers, by our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and by the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me,
that I may be delivered from those who are disobedient in Yehudah, and that my service which I have for Yerushalayim may be acceptable to the holy ones;
that I may come to you in joy through the will of God, and together with you, find rest.
Now the God of shalom be with you all. Amein.
