1WE who have strong faith ought to shoulder the burden of the doubts and qualms of the weak and not just go our own sweet way.

2We should consider the good of our neighbour and help to build up his character.

3For even Christ did not choose his own pleasure, but as it is written: The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell upon me.

4For all those words which were written long ago are meant to teach us today; so that we may be encouraged to endure and to go on hoping in our own time.

5May the God who inspires men to endure, and gives them constant encouragement, give you a mind united with one another in your common loyalty to Christ Jesus.

6And then, as one man, you will sing from the heart the praises of God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7So open your hearts to one another as Christ has opened his heart to you, and God will be glorified.

8Christ was made a servant of the Jews to prove God's trustworthiness, since he implemented the promises made long ago to the fathers,

9and also that the gentiles might bring glory to God for his mercy to them. It is written: Therefore will I give praise unto thee among the gentiles and sing unto thy name.

10And again: Rejoice, ye gentiles, with his people.

11And yet again: Praise the Lord, all ye gentiles; And let all the peoples praise him.

12And then Isaiah says: There shall be the root of Jesse, And he that ariseth to rule over the gentiles: On him shall the gentiles hope.

13May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in your faith, that by the power of the Holy Spirit, your whole life and outlook may be radiant with hope.

14For myself I feel certain that you, my brothers, have real Christian character and experience, and that you are capable of keeping each other on the right road.

15Nevertheless I have in some places written to you with a greater frankness, to refresh your minds with truths that you already know. It is by virtue of the commission given to me by God

16that I am the minister of Christ to the gentiles. This makes it my priestly duty to tell them the gospel of God, and thus to present them as an offering which he can accept, because they are sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

17And I think I have something to be proud of through Jesus Christ in my work for God.

18I am not competent to speak of the work Christ has done through others, but I do know that through me he has secured the obedience of gentiles in word and deed,

19working by sign and miracle and all the power of the Holy Spirit. Thus I have been able to complete the preaching of the gospel of Christ from Jerusalem as far round as Illyricum.

20My constant ambition has been to preach the gospel where the name of Christ was previously unknown, and to avoid building on another man's foundation,

21as Scripture says: They shall see, to whom no tidings of him came, And they who have not heard shall understand.

22Perhaps this will explain why I have so frequently been prevented from coming to see you.

23But now, since my work in these places no longer needs my presence, and since for many years I have had a great desire to see you,

24I hope to visit you on my way to Spain. I hope to see you on my way through, and I hope also that you will speed me on my journey, after I have had the satisfaction of seeing you all.

25At the moment my next call is to Jerusalem, to look after the welfare of the Christians there.

26The churches in Macedonia and Achaia, you see, have thought it a good thing to make a contribution towards the poor Christians in Jerusalem.

27They have decided to do this, and indeed they owe it to them. For if the gentiles have had a share in the Jews' spiritual good things it is only fair that they should look after the Jews as far as the good things of this world are concerned.

28When I have completed this task, then, and put this gift safely into their hands, I shall come to you [en route] for Spain.

29I feel sure that in this visit I shall bring with me the full blessing of Christ.

30Now, my brothers, I am going to ask you, for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ and for the love we bear each other in the Spirit, to stand behind me in earnest prayer to God on my behalf

31that I may not far into the hands of the unbelievers in Judaea, and that the Jerusalem Christians may welcome the gift I am taking to them.

32Then I shall come to you, in the purpose of God, with a happy heart, and may even enjoy with you a little holiday.

33The God of peace be with you all, amen.
