but as it is written: "To whom He was not spoken of, they shall see; and they that have not heard shall understand."
For this cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you.
But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you,
whensoever I make my journey into Spain I will come to you. For I trust to see you on my journey, and to be brought on my way thither by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company.
But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.
For it hath pleased those of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints who are at Jerusalem.
It hath pleased them verily, and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers in their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.
When therefore I have performed this, and have secured to them this fruit, I will come to you on my way to Spain.
And I am sure that when I come unto you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ.
Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me,
that I may be delivered from those who do not believe in Judea, and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted by the saints,
