Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 So we who are strong have a duty to bear the weaknesses of those who are not strong, rather than please ourselves. 1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
2 Each of us should please his neighbor and act for his good, thus building him up. 2 Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.
3 For even the Messiah did not please himself; j 3 For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: "The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me."
4 For rather, as the Tanakh says, 'The insults of those insulting you fell on me.'everything written in the past was written to teach us, so that with the encouragement of the Tanakh we might patiently hold on to our hope. 4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
5 And may God, the source of encouragement and patience, give you the same attitude among yourselves as the Messiah Yeshua had, 5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus,
6 so that with one accord and with one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 6 so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
7 So welcome each other, just as the Messiah has welcomed you into God's glory. 7 Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
8 For I say that the Messiah became a servant of the Jewish people in order to show God's truthfulness by making good his promises to the Patriarchs, 8 For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs
9 and in order to show his mercy by causing the Gentiles to glorify God - as it is written in the Tanakh, "Because of this I will acknowledge you among the Gentiles and sing praise to your name." 9 so that the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy, as it is written: "Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name."
10 And again it says, "Gentiles, rejoice with his people." 10 Again, it says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people."
11 And again, "Praise ADONAI, all Gentiles! Let all peoples praise him!" 11 And again, "Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and sing praises to him, all you peoples."
12 And again, Yesha'yahu says, "The root of Yishai will come, he who arises to rule Gentiles; Gentiles will put their hope in him." 12 And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him."
13 May God, the source of hope, fill you completely with joy and shalom as you continue trusting, so that by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh you may overflow with hope. 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
14 Now I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and well able to counsel each other. 14 I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, complete in knowledge and competent to instruct one another.
15 But on some points I have written you quite boldly by way of reminding you about them, because of the grace God has given me 15 I have written you quite boldly on some points, as if to remind you of them again, because of the grace God gave me
16 to be a servant of the Messiah Yeshua for the Gentiles, with the priestly duty of presenting the Good News of God, so that the Gentiles may be an acceptable offering, made holy by the Ruach HaKodesh. 16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles with the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
17 In union with the Messiah Yeshua, then, I have reason to be proud of my service to God; 17 Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God.
18 for I will not dare speak of anything except what the Messiah has accomplished through me to bring the Gentiles to obedience by my words and deeds, 18 I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done--
19 through the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Yerushalayim all the way to Illyricum I have fully proclaimed the Good News of the Messiah. 19 by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ.
20 I have always made it my ambition to proclaim the Good News where the Messiah was not yet known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation, 20 It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation.
21 but rather, as the Tanakh puts it, "Those who have not been told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand." 21 Rather, as it is written: "Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand."
22 This is also why I have so often been prevented from visiting you. 22 This is why I have often been hindered from coming to you.
23 But now, since there is no longer a place in these regions that needs me, and since I have wanted for many years to come to you, 23 But now that there is no more place for me to work in these regions, and since I have been longing for many years to see you,
24 I hope to see you as I pass through on my way to Spain, and to have you help me travel there after I have enjoyed your company awhile. 24 I plan to do so when I go to Spain. I hope to visit you while passing through and to have you assist me on my journey there, after I have enjoyed your company for a while.
25 But now I am going to Yerushalayim with aid for God's people there. 25 Now, however, I am on my way to Jerusalem in the service of the saints there.
26 For Macedonia and Achaia thought it would be good to make some contribution to the poor among God's people in Yerushalayim. 26 For Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem.
27 They were pleased to do it, but the fact is that they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have shared with the Jews in spiritual matters, then the Gentiles clearly have a duty to help the Jews in material matters. 27 They were pleased to do it, and indeed they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews' spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.
28 So when I have finished this task and made certain that they have received this fruit, I will leave for Spain and visit you on my way there; 28 So after I have completed this task and have made sure that they have received this fruit, I will go to Spain and visit you on the way.
29 and I know that when I come to you, it will be with the full measure of the Messiah's blessings. 29 I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.
30 And now I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Yeshua the Messiah and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God on my behalf 30 I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.
31 that I will be rescued from the unbelievers in Y'hudah, and that my service for Yerushalayim will be acceptable to God's people there. 31 Pray that I may be rescued from the unbelievers in Judea and that my service in Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints there,
32 Then, if it is God's will, I will come to you with joy and have a time of rest among you. 32 so that by God's will I may come to you with joy and together with you be refreshed.
33 Now may the God of shalom be with you all. Amen. 33 The God of peace be with you all. Amen.
