5 Now may the God who gives endurance and who supplies encouragement grant that you be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify and praise and honor the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
7 Therefore, [continue to] accept and welcome one another, just as Christ has accepted and welcomed us to the glory of [our great] God. 8 For I tell you that Christ has become a servant and a minister to the circumcision (Jews) on behalf of God’s truth, to confirm and verify the promises made to the fathers, 9 and for the Gentiles to glorify God for His mercy [to them, since God had no covenant with them]. As it is written and forever remains written,
“Therefore I praise You among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name.”
10 Again it says,
“Rejoiceandcelebrate, O Gentiles, along with His people.”
11 And again,
“Praise the Lord all you Gentiles, And let all the peoples praise Him!”
12 Again Isaiah says,
“There shall be a root of[a]Jesse, He who arises to rule [as King] over the Gentiles, In Him shall the Gentiles hope.”
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you will abound in hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.
Romans 15:12Jesse was the father of David the king, and Jesus (the Messiah) was a descendant of David.
