Romans 15:1-13 Bible in Basic English

15 1  We who are strong have to be a support to the feeble, and not give pleasure to ourselves. 2  Let every one of us give pleasure to his neighbour for his good, to make him strong. 3  For Christ did not give pleasure to himself, but, as it is said, The bitter words of those who were angry with you came on me. 4  Now those things which were put down in writing before our time were for our learning, so that through quiet waiting and through the comfort of the holy Writings we might have hope.

5  Now may the God who gives comfort and strength in waiting make you of the same mind with one another in harmony with Christ Jesus: 6  So that with one mouth you may give glory to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Gospel to the Gentiles

7  So then, take one another to your hearts, as Christ took us, to the glory of God. 8  Now I say that Christ has been made a servant of the circumcision to give effect to the undertakings given by God to the fathers, 9  And so that the Gentiles might give glory to God for his mercy; as it is said, For this reason I will give praise to you among the Gentiles, and I will make a song to your name. 10  And again he says, Take part, you Gentiles, in the joy of his people. 11  And again, Give praise to the Lord, all you Gentiles; and let all the nations give praise to him. 12  And again Isaiah says, There will be the root of Jesse, and he who comes to be the ruler over the Gentiles; in him will the Gentiles put their hope.

13  Now may the God of hope make you full of joy and peace through faith, so that all hope may be yours in the power of the Holy Spirit.
