Romans 15:7-16

7

Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

8

Now I say that Jesus Christ has become a servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made to the fathers,

9

and that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy, as it is written:"For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles, And sing to Your name."

10

And again he says:"Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!"

11

And again:"Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples!"

12

And again, Isaiah says:"There shall be a root of Jesse; And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles, In Him the Gentiles shall hope."

13

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

14

Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.

15

Nevertheless, brethren, I have written more boldly to you on some points, as reminding you, because of the grace given to me by God,

16

that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
