The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1The hidden mystery that the Gentiles should be saved was made known to Paul by revelation;
8and to him was that grace given, that he should preach it.
13He desires them not to faint for his tribulation;
14and prays that they may perceive the great love of Christ toward them.
