We who are strong ought to put up with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Each of us must please our neighbor for the good purpose of building up the neighbor.
For Christ did not please himself; but, as it is written, "The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me."
For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.
May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus,
so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the circumcised on behalf of the truth of God in order that he might confirm the promises given to the patriarchs,
and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, "Therefore I will confess a you among the Gentiles, and sing praises to your name";
and again he says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people";
