Bearing Others’ Burdens

15 We (A)then who are strong ought to bear with the [a]scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. (B)Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to [b]edification. (C)For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, (D)“The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.” For (E)whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the [c]patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. (F)Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may (G)with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Glorify God Together

Therefore (H)receive one another, just (I)as Christ also received [d]us, to the glory of God. Now I say that (J)Jesus Christ has become a [e]servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, (K)to confirm the promises made to the fathers, and (L)that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy, as it is written:

(M)“For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles,
And sing to Your name.”

10 And again he says:

(N)“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!”

11 And again:

(O)“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles!
Laud Him, all you peoples!”

12 And again, Isaiah says:

(P)“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 (Q)joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

From Jerusalem to Illyricum

14 Now (R)I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, (S)filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish [f]one another.
