Each of us should please his neighbor for his good,1 to build him up.23
For even Christ did not please himself3 but, as it is written: "The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me."a44
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us,5 so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity6 among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus,
so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify7 the God and Father8 of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Accept one another,9 then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jewsb10 on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises11 made to the patriarchs
so that the Gentiles12 may glorify God13 for his mercy, as it is written: "Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name."c1410
Again, it says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people."d1511
And again, "Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and sing praises to him, all you peoples."e1612
And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse17 will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him."f18
