24 I hope to see you in passing as I go to Spain, and to be sped on my journey there by you, once I have enjoyed your company for a little. 24 I plan to do so when I go to Spain.

27 they were pleased to do it, and indeed they are in debt to them, for if the Gentiles have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings. 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 When therefore I have completed this, and have delivered to them what has been raised, I shall go on by way of you to Spain; 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 I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of Christ. 29 I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.
