Romans 15:22-33

Paul's Plan to Visit Rome

22 This is the reason why 1I have so often been hindered from coming to you.
23 But now, since I no longer have any room for work in these regions, and 2since I have longed for many years to come to you,
24 I hope to see you in passing as I go 3to Spain, and 4to be helped on my journey there by you, once I have enjoyed your company for a while.
25 At present, however, 5I am going to Jerusalem bringing aid to the saints.
26 For 6Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make some contribution for the poor among the saints at Jerusalem.
27 For they were pleased to do it, and indeed 7they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings.
28 When therefore I have completed this and have delivered to them what has been collected,a I will leave 8for Spain by way of you.
29 I know that when I come to you I will come in the fullness of the blessingb of Christ.
30 I appeal to you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by 9the love of the Spirit, 10to strive together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf,
31 11that I may be delivered from the unbelievers in Judea, and that 12my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints,
32 so that by God's will I may come to you with joy and 13be refreshed in your company.
33 May 14the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
