1We then who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of the weak, and not seek to please ourselves. 2Let every one of us please his neighbor in good and constructive ways. 3For even Mashi’akh pleased not Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you have fallen on me.” 4For whatever was written of old was written for our instruction, that we, through patience and comfort of the scriptures, might have hope.
5Now the Elohim of patience and consolation grant you to regard one another to be equally worthy through Yeshua HaMashi’akh, 6that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify Elohim, even HaAv of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh. 7Therefore be friendly and bear one another’s burdens, just as Mashi’akh also brought you close to the glory of Elohim. 8Now I say that Yeshua HaMashi’akh was a minister of the circumcision, for the truth of Elohim, to confirm the promises made to the fathers, 9and that the Goyim might glorify Elohim for His mercies which were poured upon them; as it is written, “Therefore I will praise you among the Goyim and sing to your name.” 10And again He says, “Rejoice, Goyim, with His people.” 11And again, He says, “Praise יהוה , all Goyim; and praise Him, all nations.” 12And again Yesha-Yahu said, “There shall be a root of Yishai, and He that shall rise will be a prince to the Goyim; and in Him shall the Goyim hope.”
13Now may the Elohim of hope fill you with all joy and shalom, so that by absolute trust you may abound in hope, through the power of The Ru’akh HaKodesh. 14And I myself am persuaded concerning you, my brethren, that you also are filled with the same goodness, and made perfect with all knowledge, able also to admonish others. 15Nevertheless, my brethren, I have written rather boldly to you, in order to remind you of the compassion which is given to me by Elohim, 16that I may become a minister of Yeshua HaMashi’akh among the Goyim, ministering HaB’sorah of Elohim, that the offering up of the Goyim might be acceptable and consecrated by The Ru’akh HaKodesh. 17I am proud therefore to glory in Yeshua HaMashi’akh before Elohim. 18For I can scarcely speak of anything which Mashi’akh has not wrought by me for the obedience of the Goyim, by word and deed, 19through mighty miracles and wonders, and by the power of The Ru’akh HaElohim; so that from Yerushalayim I went round about as far as Illyricum, and I have fully declared B’soraht HaMashi’akh. 20And I have so striven to declare HaB’sorah, not at any place where the Name of Mashi’akh had already been declared, because I did not want to build on another’s foundation; 21but as it is written, “Those to whom he was never mentioned shall see him; and those who have not heard of him shall be made obedient.”
22This is the reason why I have been many times prevented from coming to you. 23But now since I have no place in these countries and I have been desirous for many years past to come to you, 24when I leave for Spain, I hope to come to see you; and I hope that you will escort me there after I have more or less fully enjoyed my visit. 25But now I am going to Yerushalayim to minister to the k’doshim. 26For these in Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to take part in helping the poor k’doshim who are at Yerushalayim. 27They have been eager to do it, because they are indebted to them, for if the Goyim have been made partakers with them of their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them in material things. 28When, therefore, I have accomplished this and have finished distributing to them this kind of help, I will cross over toward you on my way to Spain. 29I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of HaB’sorah of Mashi’akh.
30Now, I beseech you, my brethren, by Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh and by the love of HaRu’akh, that you should strive together with me in your prayer to Elohim for me, 31that I may be delivered from those who are disobedient in Y’hudah, and that the assistance which I carry to the K’doshim in Yerushalayim may be well accepted. 32So that I may come to you with joy by the will of Elohim and may with you be refreshed. 33Now may the Elohim of shalom be with you all. Amein.
