Self-denial on Behalf of Others

1 Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those R685 without strength and not just please ourselves. 2 Each of us is to please R686 his neighbor for F230 his good, to his edification. R687 3 For even Christ R688 did not please Himself; but as it is written, "THE R689 REPROACHES OF THOSE WHO REPROACHED YOU FELL ON ME." 4 For whatever R690 was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 Now may the God R691 who F231 gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to R692 be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one accord you may with one voice F232 glorify the R693 God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7 Therefore, accept R694 one another, just as Christ also accepted us F233 to the glory of God. 8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the R695 circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the R696 promises given to the fathers, 9 and for the R697 Gentiles to glorify R698 God for His mercy; as it is written, "THEREFORE R699 I WILL GIVE F234 PRAISE TO YOU AMONG THE GENTILES, AND I WILL SING TO YOUR NAME." 10 Again he says, "REJOICE R700 , O GENTILES, WITH HIS PEOPLE." 11 And again, "PRAISE R701 THE LORD ALL YOU GENTILES, AND LET ALL THE PEOPLES PRAISE HIM." 12 Again Isaiah says, "THERE R702 SHALL COME THE R703 ROOT OF JESSE, AND HE WHO ARISES TO RULE OVER THE GENTILES, IN R704 HIM SHALL THE GENTILES HOPE." 13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy R705 and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by R706 the power of the Holy Spirit.

14 And concerning you, my brethren, I myself also am convinced that you yourselves are full of goodness, R707 filled with all R708 knowledge and able also to admonish one another. 15 But I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the R709 grace that was given me from F235 God, 16 to be a R710 minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, ministering as a priest the gospel R711 of God, so that my offering R712 of the Gentiles may become acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 17 Therefore in Christ Jesus I have found reason R713 for boasting in things R714 pertaining to God. 18 For I will not presume to speak of anything except F236 what Christ R715 has accomplished through me, resulting F237 in the obedience of the Gentiles by word and deed, 19 in the power of signs R716 F238 and wonders, in R717 the power of the Spirit; so that from R718 Jerusalem and round about as far R719 as Illyricum I have fully F239 preached the gospel of Christ. 20 And thus I aspired to preach R720 the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so R721 that I would not build on another man's foundation; 21 but as it is written, "THEY R722 WHO HAD NO NEWS OF HIM SHALL SEE, AND THEY WHO HAVE NOT HEARD SHALL UNDERSTAND."

22 For this reason I R723 have often been prevented from coming to you; 23 but now, with no further place for me in these regions, and since I have R724 had for many years a longing to come to you 24 whenever I go R725 to Spain--for I hope to see you in passing, and to be helped R726 on my way there by you, when I have first enjoyed R727 your company for F240 a while-- 25 but now, I R728 am going to Jerusalem serving R729 the saints. F241 26 For Macedonia R730 and Achaia R731 have been pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints F242 in Jerusalem. 27 Yes, they were pleased to do so, and they are indebted to them. For if R732 the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things. 28 Therefore, when I have finished this, and have R733 put F243 my seal on this fruit of theirs, I will go R734 on by way of you to Spain. 29 I know that when I R735 come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ.

30 Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the R736 love of the Spirit, to strive R737 together with me in your prayers to God for me, 31 that I may be rescued R738 from those who are disobedient in Judea, and that my service R739 for Jerusalem may prove acceptable to the saints; R740 F244 32 so that I R741 may come to you in joy by the R742 will of God and find refreshing rest in your company. 33 Now the R743 God of peace be with you all. Amen.
