Paul's Plan to Visit Rome

22 This is the reason why (A)I have so often been hindered from coming to you. 23 But now, since I no longer have any room for work in these regions, and (B)since I have longed for many years to come to you, 24 I hope to see you in passing as I go (C)to Spain, and (D)to be helped on my journey there by you, once I have enjoyed your company for a while. 25 At present, however, (E)I am going to Jerusalem bringing aid to the saints. 26 For (F)Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make some contribution for the poor among the saints at Jerusalem. 27 For they were pleased to do it, and indeed (G)they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings. 28 When therefore I have completed this and have delivered to them what has been collected,[a] I will leave (H)for Spain by way of you. 29 I know that when I come to you I will come in the fullness of the blessing[b] of Christ.
