For whatever was written before was written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we may have hope.
Now may the God of endurance and encouragement grant you agreement with one another, according to Christ Jesus,
so that you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with a united mind and voice.
Therefore accept one another, just as the Messiah also accepted you, to the glory of God.
Now I say that Christ has become a servant of the circumcised on behalf of the truth of God, to confirm the promises to the fathers,
and so that Gentiles may glorify God for His mercy. As it is written: Therefore I will praise You among the Gentiles, and I will sing psalms to Your name.
Again it says: Rejoice, you Gentiles, with His people!
And again: Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles; all the peoples should praise Him!
And again, Isaiah says: The root of Jesse will appear, the One who rises to rule the Gentiles; in Him the Gentiles will hope.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
