Romans 15:4-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us,1 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 unity2 among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify3 the God and Father4 of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Accept one another,5 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 Jewsa6 on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises7 made to the patriarchs 9 so that the Gentiles8 may glorify God9 for his mercy, as it is written: "Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name."b10 10 Again, it says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people."c11 11 And again, "Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and sing praises to him, all you peoples."d12 12 And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse13 will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him."e14 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace15 as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.16

Paul the Minister to the Gentiles

14 I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness,17 complete in knowledge18 and competent to instruct one another.
