Romans 15:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 For even Christ did not please himself1 but, as it is written: "The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me."a2 4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us,3 so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity4 among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify5 the God and Father6 of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Accept one another,7 then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. 8 For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jewsb8 on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises9 made to the patriarchs 9 so that the Gentiles10 may glorify God11 for his mercy, as it is written: "Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name."c12 10 Again, it says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people."d13 11 And again, "Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and sing praises to him, all you peoples."e14 12 And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse15 will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him."f16 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace17 as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.18
