1Those of us who are strong must accept as our own burden the tender scruples of the weak, and not just please ourselves.

2Each of us must consider his neighbour and think what is for his good and will build up the common life.

3Christ too did not please himself; to him apply the words of scripture, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.”

4The scriptures written long ago were all written for our instruction, in order that through the encouragement they give us we may maintain our hope with perseverance.

5And may God, the source of all perseverance and all encouragement, grant that you may agree with one another after the manner of Christ Jesus,

6and so with one mind and one voice may praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7In a word, accept one another as Christ accepted us, to the glory of God.

8Remember that Christ became a servant of the Jewish people to maintain the faithfulness of God by making good his promises to the patriarchs,

9and by giving the Gentiles cause to glorify God for his mercy. As scripture says, “Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles and sing hymns to your name”;

10and again, “Gentiles, join in celebration with his people”;

11and yet again, “All Gentiles, praise the Lord; let all peoples praise him.”

12Once again, Isaiah says, “The Scion of Jesse shall come, a ruler who rises to govern the Gentiles; on him shall they set their hope.”

13And may God, who is the ground of hope, fill you with all joy and peace as you lead the life of faith until, by the power of the Holy Spirit, you overflow with hope.

14MY friends, I have no doubt in my own mind that you yourselves are full of goodness and equipped with knowledge of every kind, well able to give advice to one another;

15nevertheless I have written to refresh your memory, and written somewhat boldly at times, in virtue of the gift I have from God.

16His grace has made me a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles; and in the service of the gospel of God it is my priestly task to offer the Gentiles to him as an acceptable sacrifice, consecrated by the Holy Spirit.

17In Christ Jesus I have indeed grounds for pride in the service of God.

18I will venture to speak only of what Christ has done through me to bring the Gentiles into his allegiance, by word and deed,

19by the power of signs and portents, and by the power of the Holy Spirit. I have completed the preaching of the gospel of Christ from Jerusalem as far round as Illyricum.

20But I have always made a point of taking the gospel to places where the name of Christ has not been heard, not wanting to build on another man's foundation;

21as scripture says, Those who had no news of him shall see, and those who never heard of him shall understand.

22That is why I have been prevented all this time from coming to you.

23But now I have no further scope in these parts, and I have been longing for many years to visit you

24on my way to Spain; for I hope to see you in passing, and to be sent on my way there with your support after having enjoyed your company for a while.

25But at the moment I am on my way to Jerusalem, on an errand to God's people there.

26For Macedonia and Achaia have resolved to raise a fund for the benefit of the poor among God's people at Jerusalem.

27They have resolved to do so, and indeed they are under an obligation to them. For if the Jewish Christians shared their spiritual treasures with the Gentiles, the Gentiles have a clear duty to contribute to their material needs.

28So when I have finished this business and seen the proceeds safely delivered to them, I shall set out for Spain and visit you on the way;

29I am sure that when I come it will be with a full measure of the blessing of Christ.

30I implore you by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love that the Spirit inspires, be my allies in the fight; pray to God for me

31that I may be saved from unbelievers in Judaea and that my errand to Jerusalem may find acceptance with God's people,

32in order that by his will I may come to you in a happy frame of mind and enjoy a time of rest with you.

33The God of peace be with you all. Amen.
