Romans 15


Rom 15:1 Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves.
Rom 15:2 Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification.
Rom 15:3 For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written," The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me."
Rom 15:4 For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
Rom 15:5 Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus,
Rom 15:6 so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rom 15:7 Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God.
Rom 15:8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers,
Rom 15:9 and for the Gentiles to glorify God for His mercy; as it is written," Therefore I will give praise to You among the Gentiles, And I will sing to Your name."
Rom 15:10 Again he says," Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people."
Rom 15:11 And again," Praise the Lord all you Gentiles, And let all the peoples praise Him."
Rom 15:12 Again Isaiah says," There shall come the root of Jesse, And He who arises to rule over the Gentiles, In Him shall the Gentiles hope."
Rom 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Rom 15:14 And concerning you, my brethren, I myself also am convinced that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able also to admonish one another.
Rom 15:15 But I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the grace that was given me from God,
Rom 15:16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, ministering as a priest the gospel of God, so that my offering of the Gentiles may become acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
Rom 15:17 Therefore in Christ Jesus I have found reason for boasting in things pertaining to God.
Rom 15:18 For I will not presume to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me, resulting in the obedience of the Gentiles by word and deed,
Rom 15:19 in the power of signs and wonders, in the power of the Spirit; so that from Jerusalem and round about as far as Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
Rom 15:20 And thus I aspired to preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so that I would not build on another man's foundation;
Rom 15:21 but as it is written," They who had no news of Him shall see, And they who have not heard shall understand."
Rom 15:22 For this reason I have often been prevented from coming to you;
Rom 15:23 but now, with no further place for me in these regions, and since I have had for many years a longing to come to you
Rom 15:24 whenever I go to Spain"for I hope to see you in passing, and to be helped on my way there by you, when I have first enjoyed your company for a while"
Rom 15:25 but now, I am going to Jerusalem serving the saints.
Rom 15:26 For Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem.
Rom 15:27 Yes, they were pleased to do so, and they are indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things.
Rom 15:28 Therefore, when I have finished this, and have put my seal on this fruit of theirs, I will go on by way of you to Spain.
Rom 15:29 I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ.
Rom 15:30 Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me,
Rom 15:31 that I may be rescued from those who are disobedient in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may prove acceptable to the saints;
Rom 15:32 so that I may come to you in joy by the will of God and find refreshing rest in your company.
Rom 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.

King James Version New American Standard Koine Greek
Rom 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. (kjv) Rom 15:1 Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Rom 15:1 ὀφείλομεν δὲ ἡμεῖς οἱ δυνατοὶ τὰ ἀσθενήματα τῶν ἀδυνάτων βαστάζειν, καὶ μὴ ἑαυτοῖς ἀρέσκειν.
Rom 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. (kjv) Rom 15:2 Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. Rom 15:2 ἕκαστος ἡμῶν τῶ πλησίον ἀρεσκέτω εἰς τὸ ἀγαθὸν πρὸς οἰκοδομήν·
Rom 15:3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. (kjv) Rom 15:3 For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written," The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me." Rom 15:3 καὶ γὰρ ὁ χριστὸς οὐχ ἑαυτῶ ἤρεσεν· ἀλλὰ καθὼς γέγραπται, οἱ ὀνειδισμοὶ τῶν ὀνειδιζόντων σε ἐπέπεσαν ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ.
Rom 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (kjv) Rom 15:4 For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Rom 15:4 ὅσα γὰρ προεγράφη, εἰς τὴν ἡμετέραν διδασκαλίαν ἐγράφη, ἵνα διὰ τῆς ὑπομονῆς καὶ διὰ τῆς παρακλήσεως τῶν γραφῶν τὴν ἐλπίδα ἔχωμεν.
Rom 15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: (kjv) Rom 15:5 Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, Rom 15:5 ὁ δὲ θεὸς τῆς ὑπομονῆς καὶ τῆς παρακλήσεως δῴη ὑμῖν τὸ αὐτὸ φρονεῖν ἐν ἀλλήλοις κατὰ χριστὸν ἰησοῦν,
Rom 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (kjv) Rom 15:6 so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Rom 15:6 ἵνα ὁμοθυμαδὸν ἐν ἑνὶ στόματι δοξάζητε τὸν θεὸν καὶ πατέρα τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ.
Rom 15:7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. (kjv) Rom 15:7 Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God. Rom 15:7 διὸ προσλαμβάνεσθε ἀλλήλους, καθὼς καὶ ὁ χριστὸς προσελάβετο ὑμᾶς, εἰς δόξαν τοῦ θεοῦ.
Rom 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: (kjv) Rom 15:8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers, Rom 15:8 λέγω γὰρ χριστὸν διάκονον γεγενῆσθαι περιτομῆς ὑπὲρ ἀληθείας θεοῦ, εἰς τὸ βεβαιῶσαι τὰς ἐπαγγελίας τῶν πατέρων,
Rom 15:9 And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. (kjv) Rom 15:9 and for the Gentiles to glorify God for His mercy; as it is written," Therefore I will give praise to You among the Gentiles, And I will sing to Your name." Rom 15:9 τὰ δὲ ἔθνη ὑπὲρ ἐλέους δοξάσαι τὸν θεόν· καθὼς γέγραπται, διὰ τοῦτο ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι ἐν ἔθνεσιν, καὶ τῶ ὀνοματί σου ψαλῶ.
Rom 15:10 And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. (kjv) Rom 15:10 Again he says," Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people." Rom 15:10 καὶ πάλιν λέγει, εὐφράνθητε, ἔθνη, μετὰ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ.
Rom 15:11 And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. (kjv) Rom 15:11 And again," Praise the Lord all you Gentiles, And let all the peoples praise Him." Rom 15:11 καὶ πάλιν, αἰνεῖτε, πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, τὸν κύριον, καὶ ἐπαινεσάτωσαν αὐτὸν πάντες οἱ λαοί.
Rom 15:12 And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust. (kjv) Rom 15:12 Again Isaiah says," There shall come the root of Jesse, And He who arises to rule over the Gentiles, In Him shall the Gentiles hope." Rom 15:12 καὶ πάλιν ἠσαΐας λέγει, ἔσται ἡ ῥίζα τοῦ ἰεσσαί, καὶ ὁ ἀνιστάμενος ἄρχειν ἐθνῶν· ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶ ἔθνη ἐλπιοῦσιν.
Rom 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. (kjv) Rom 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Rom 15:13 ὁ δὲ θεὸς τῆς ἐλπίδος πληρώσαι ὑμᾶς πάσης χαρᾶς καὶ εἰρήνης ἐν τῶ πιστεύειν, εἰς τὸ περισσεύειν ὑμᾶς ἐν τῇ ἐλπίδι ἐν δυνάμει πνεύματος ἁγίου.
Rom 15:14 And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. (kjv) Rom 15:14 And concerning you, my brethren, I myself also am convinced that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able also to admonish one another. Rom 15:14 πέπεισμαι δέ, ἀδελφοί μου, καὶ αὐτὸς ἐγὼ περὶ ὑμῶν, ὅτι καὶ αὐτοὶ μεστοί ἐστε ἀγαθωσύνης, πεπληρωμένοι πάσης [τῆς] γνώσεως, δυνάμενοι καὶ ἀλλήλους νουθετεῖν.
Rom 15:15 Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, (kjv) Rom 15:15 But I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the grace that was given me from God, Rom 15:15 τολμηρότερον δὲ ἔγραψα ὑμῖν ἀπὸ μέρους, ὡς ἐπαναμιμνῄσκων ὑμᾶς διὰ τὴν χάριν τὴν δοθεῖσάν μοι ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ
Rom 15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. (kjv) Rom 15:16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, ministering as a priest the gospel of God, so that my offering of the Gentiles may become acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Rom 15:16 εἰς τὸ εἶναί με λειτουργὸν χριστοῦ ἰησοῦ εἰς τὰ ἔθνη, ἱερουργοῦντα τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τοῦ θεοῦ, ἵνα γένηται ἡ προσφορὰ τῶν ἐθνῶν εὐπρόσδεκτος, ἡγιασμένη ἐν πνεύματι ἁγίῳ.
Rom 15:17 I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God. (kjv) Rom 15:17 Therefore in Christ Jesus I have found reason for boasting in things pertaining to God. Rom 15:17 ἔχω οὗν [τὴν] καύχησιν ἐν χριστῶ ἰησοῦ τὰ πρὸς τὸν θεόν·
Rom 15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed, (kjv) Rom 15:18 For I will not presume to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me, resulting in the obedience of the Gentiles by word and deed, Rom 15:18 οὐ γὰρ τολμήσω τι λαλεῖν ὧν οὐ κατειργάσατο χριστὸς δι᾽ ἐμοῦ εἰς ὑπακοὴν ἐθνῶν, λόγῳ καὶ ἔργῳ,
Rom 15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. (kjv) Rom 15:19 in the power of signs and wonders, in the power of the Spirit; so that from Jerusalem and round about as far as Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. Rom 15:19 ἐν δυνάμει σημείων καὶ τεράτων, ἐν δυνάμει πνεύματος [θεοῦ]· ὥστε με ἀπὸ ἰερουσαλὴμ καὶ κύκλῳ μέχρι τοῦ ἰλλυρικοῦ πεπληρωκέναι τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τοῦ χριστοῦ,
Rom 15:20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation: (kjv) Rom 15:20 And thus I aspired to preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so that I would not build on another man's foundation; Rom 15:20 οὕτως δὲ φιλοτιμούμενον εὐαγγελίζεσθαι οὐχ ὅπου ὠνομάσθη χριστός, ἵνα μὴ ἐπ᾽ ἀλλότριον θεμέλιον οἰκοδομῶ,
Rom 15:21 But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand. (kjv) Rom 15:21 but as it is written," They who had no news of Him shall see, And they who have not heard shall understand." Rom 15:21 ἀλλὰ καθὼς γέγραπται, οἷς οὐκ ἀνηγγέλη περὶ αὐτοῦ ὄψονται, καὶ οἳ οὐκ ἀκηκόασιν συνήσουσιν.
Rom 15:22 For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you. (kjv) Rom 15:22 For this reason I have often been prevented from coming to you; Rom 15:22 διὸ καὶ ἐνεκοπτόμην τὰ πολλὰ τοῦ ἐλθεῖν πρὸς ὑμᾶς·
Rom 15:23 But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you; (kjv) Rom 15:23 but now, with no further place for me in these regions, and since I have had for many years a longing to come to you Rom 15:23 νυνὶ δὲ μηκέτι τόπον ἔχων ἐν τοῖς κλίμασι τούτοις, ἐπιποθίαν δὲ ἔχων τοῦ ἐλθεῖν πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ πολλῶν ἐτῶν,
Rom 15:24 Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company. (kjv) Rom 15:24 whenever I go to Spain"for I hope to see you in passing, and to be helped on my way there by you, when I have first enjoyed your company for a while" Rom 15:24 ὡς ἂν πορεύωμαι εἰς τὴν σπανίαν· ἐλπίζω γὰρ διαπορευόμενος θεάσασθαι ὑμᾶς καὶ ὑφ᾽ ὑμῶν προπεμφθῆναι ἐκεῖ ἐὰν ὑμῶν πρῶτον ἀπὸ μέρους ἐμπλησθῶ _
Rom 15:25 But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints. (kjv) Rom 15:25 but now, I am going to Jerusalem serving the saints. Rom 15:25 νυνὶ δὲ πορεύομαι εἰς ἰερουσαλὴμ διακονῶν τοῖς ἁγίοις.
Rom 15:26 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. (kjv) Rom 15:26 For Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem. Rom 15:26 εὐδόκησαν γὰρ μακεδονία καὶ ἀχαΐα κοινωνίαν τινὰ ποιήσασθαι εἰς τοὺς πτωχοὺς τῶν ἁγίων τῶν ἐν ἰερουσαλήμ.
Rom 15:27 It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. (kjv) Rom 15:27 Yes, they were pleased to do so, and they are indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things. Rom 15:27 εὐδόκησαν γάρ, καὶ ὀφειλέται εἰσὶν αὐτῶν· εἰ γὰρ τοῖς πνευματικοῖς αὐτῶν ἐκοινώνησαν τὰ ἔθνη, ὀφείλουσιν καὶ ἐν τοῖς σαρκικοῖς λειτουργῆσαι αὐτοῖς.
Rom 15:28 When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain. (kjv) Rom 15:28 Therefore, when I have finished this, and have put my seal on this fruit of theirs, I will go on by way of you to Spain. Rom 15:28 τοῦτο οὗν ἐπιτελέσας, καὶ σφραγισάμενος αὐτοῖς τὸν καρπὸν τοῦτον, ἀπελεύσομαι δι᾽ ὑμῶν εἰς σπανίαν·
Rom 15:29 And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ. (kjv) Rom 15:29 I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ. Rom 15:29 οἶδα δὲ ὅτι ἐρχόμενος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν πληρώματι εὐλογίας χριστοῦ ἐλεύσομαι.
Rom 15:30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; (kjv) Rom 15:30 Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me, Rom 15:30 παρακαλῶ δὲ ὑμᾶς [, ἀδελφοί,] διὰ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ καὶ διὰ τῆς ἀγάπης τοῦ πνεύματος, συναγωνίσασθαί μοι ἐν ταῖς προσευχαῖς ὑπὲρ ἐμοῦ πρὸς τὸν θεόν,
Rom 15:31 That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints; (kjv) Rom 15:31 that I may be rescued from those who are disobedient in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may prove acceptable to the saints; Rom 15:31 ἵνα ῥυσθῶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀπειθούντων ἐν τῇ ἰουδαίᾳ καὶ ἡ διακονία μου ἡ εἰς ἰερουσαλὴμ εὐπρόσδεκτος τοῖς ἁγίοις γένηται,
Rom 15:32 That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed. (kjv) Rom 15:32 so that I may come to you in joy by the will of God and find refreshing rest in your company. Rom 15:32 ἵνα ἐν χαρᾷ ἐλθὼν πρὸς ὑμᾶς διὰ θελήματος θεοῦ συναναπαύσωμαι ὑμῖν.
Rom 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.(kjv) Rom 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen. Rom 15:33 ὁ δὲ θεὸς τῆς εἰρήνης μετὰ πάντων ὑμῶν· ἀμήν.
