15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
15:2 Let every one of us please [his] neighbour for [his] good to edification.
15:3 For even ha Mashiach pleased not himself; but,
As it is written:
The reproaches of them that reproached you fell on me.
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.
15:5 Now the Elohim (אלהים) of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to ha Mashiach Yehoshua (יהושע):
15:6 That you may with one mind [and] one mouth glorify Elohim (אלהים), even the Father of Adoneinu Yehoshua (יהושע) ha Mashiach.
15:7 Wherefore receive you one another, as ha Mashiach also received us to the glory of Elohim (אלהים).
15:8 Now I say that Yehoshua (יהושע) ha Mashiach was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of Elohim (אלהים), to confirm the promises [made] to the fathers:
15:9 And that the Goyim might glorify Elohim (אלהים) for [his] mercy;
As it is written:
For this cause I will confess to you among the Goyim, and sing to your name.
15:10 And again he said, Rejoice, you Goyim, with his people.
15:11 And again, Praise Adonay, all you Goyim; and laud him, all you people.
15:12 And again, Yeshayahu said:
There shall be a root of Yishai, and he that shall rise to reign over the Goyim; in him shall the Goyim trust.
15:13 Now the Elohim (אלהים) of hope fill you with all joy and shalom in believing, that you may abound in hope, through the power of Ruach Ha Kodesh.
15:14 And I myself also am persuaded of you, my Achim (Brethren), that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.
15:15 Nevertheless, Achim (Brethren), I have written the more boldly to you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of Elohim (אלהים),
15:16 That I should be the minister of Yehoshua (יהושע) ha Mashiach to the Goyim, ministering the good news of Elohim (אלהים), that the offering up of the Goyim might be acceptable, being sanctified by Ruach Ha Kodesh.
15:17 I have therefore whereof I may glory through Yehoshua (יהושע) ha Mashiach in those things which pertain to Elohim (אלהים).
15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which ha Mashiach has not wrought by me, to make the Goyim obedient, by word and deed,
15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of Elohim (אלהים); so that from Yerushalayim, and round about to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the good news of ha Mashiach.
15:20 And thus, so I have made it my aim to proclaim the good news, not where Mashiach was named, lest I should build on another's foundation:
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.
15:22 For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you.
15:23 But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come to you;
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].
15:25 But now I go to Yerushalayim to minister to the set apart ones.
15:26 For it has pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor set apart ones which are at Yerushalayim.
15:27 For they were pleased to do it, and indeed they own it to them. For if the Goyim have come to share in their spiritual blessing, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings.
15:28 When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.
15:29 And I am sure that, when I come to you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the good news of ha Mashiach.
15:30 Now I urge you, Achim (Brethren), for Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע) ha Mashiach's sake, and for the love of the Ruach, that you strive together with me in [your] tefillah to Elohim (אלהים) for me;
15:31 That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Yehudah; and that my service which [I have] for Yerushalayim may be accepted of the set apart ones;
15:32 That I may come to you with joy by the will of Elohim (אלהים), and may with you be refreshed.
15:33 Now the Elohim (אלהים) of Shalom [be] with you all. Amein.
