Romans 15:22-29

BBE 22 For which reason I was frequently kept from coming to you: NIV 22 This is why I have often been hindered from coming to you. BBE 23 But now, having no longer any place in these parts and having had for a number of years a great desire to come to you, NIV 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, BBE 24 Whenever I go to Spain (for it is my hope to see you on my way, and to be sent on there by you, if first I may in some measure have been comforted by your company)-- NIV 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. BBE 25 But now I go to Jerusalem, taking help for the saints. NIV 25 Now, however, I am on my way to Jerusalem in the service of the saints there. BBE 26 For it has been the good pleasure of those of Macedonia and Achaia to send a certain amount of money for the poor among the saints at Jerusalem. NIV 26 For Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem. BBE 27 Yes, it has been their good pleasure; and they are in their debt. For if the Gentiles have had a part in the things of the Spirit which were theirs, it is right for them, in the same way, to give them help in the things of the flesh. NIV 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. BBE 28 So when I have done this, and have given them this fruit of love, I will go on by you into Spain. NIV 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. BBE 29 And I am certain that when I come, I will be full of the blessing of Christ. NIV 29 I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.
