14 And concerning you, my brethren, I myself also am convinced that you yourselves are full of (A)goodness, filled with (B)all 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 (C)the grace that was given me [a]from God, 16 to be (D)a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, ministering as a priest the (E)gospel of God, so that my (F)offering of the Gentiles may become acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 17 Therefore in Christ Jesus I have found (G)reason for boasting in (H)things pertaining to God. 18 For I will not presume to speak of anything [b]except what (I)Christ has accomplished through me, [c]resulting in the obedience of the Gentiles by word and deed, 19 in the power of [d](J)signs and wonders, (K)in the power of the Spirit; so that (L)from Jerusalem and round about as (M)far as Illyricum I have [e]fully preached the gospel of Christ. 20 And thus I aspired to (N)preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, (O)so that I would not build on another man’s foundation; 21 but as it is written,

(P)They who had no news of Him shall see,
And they who have not heard shall understand.”
