ROMANS 15:4-124 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. Christ the Hope of Jews and Gentiles8 For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God’s truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, 9 and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written,“Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles,and sing to your name.” 10 And again it is said,“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.” 11 And again,“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles,and let all the peoples extol him.” 12 And again Isaiah says,“The root of Jesse will come,even he who arises to rule the Gentiles;in him will the Gentiles hope.”
