Romans 15

English Standard Version

The Example of Christ

15 (A)We who are strong (B)have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.(C)Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.For (D)Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, (E)“The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.”For (F)whatever was written in former days was written for our (G)instruction, that through endurance and through (H)the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you (I)to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,that together you may with one voice glorify (J)the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

Christ the Hope of Jews and Gentiles

For I tell you that Christ (K)became a servant to the circumcised to show God's truthfulness, in order (L)to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs,and in order (M)that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written,

(N)“Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles,
    and sing to your name.”

10 And again it is said,

(O)“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.”

11 And again,

(P)“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles,
    and let all the peoples extol him.”

12 And again Isaiah says,

(Q)(R)“The root of Jesse will come,
    even he who arises to rule the Gentiles;
(S)in him will the Gentiles hope.”

13 May the God of hope fill you with all (T)joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Paul the Minister to the Gentiles

14 (U)I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with (V)all knowledge and able to instruct one another.15 But on some points I have written to you very boldly by way of reminder, (W)because of the grace given me by God16 to be (X)a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles (Y)in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that (Z)the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.17 In Christ Jesus, then, I have (AA)reason to be proud of (AB)my work for God.18 For I will not venture to speak of anything except (AC)what Christ has accomplished through me (AD)to bring the Gentiles to obedience—by word and deed,19 (AE)by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God—so that (AF)from Jerusalem and all the way around (AG)to Illyricum I have fulfilled the ministry of the gospel of Christ;20 and thus I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, (AH)lest I build on someone else's foundation,21 but as it is written,

(AI)“Those who have never been told of him will see,
    and those who have never heard will understand.”

Paul's Plan to Visit Rome

22 This is the reason why (AJ)I have so often been hindered from coming to you.23 But now, since I no longer have any room for work in these regions, and (AK)since I have longed for many years to come to you,24 I hope to see you in passing as I go (AL)to Spain, and (AM)to be helped on my journey there by you, once I have enjoyed your company for a while.25 At present, however, (AN)I am going to Jerusalem bringing aid to the saints.26 For (AO)Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make some contribution for the poor among the saints at Jerusalem.27 For they were pleased to do it, and indeed (AP)they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings.28 When therefore I have completed this and have delivered to them what has been collected, I will leave (AQ)for Spain by way of you.29 I know that when I come to you I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ.

30 I appeal to you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by (AR)the love of the Spirit, (AS)to strive together with me in your prayers to God on my behalf,31 (AT)that I may be delivered from the unbelievers in Judea, and that (AU)my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints,32 so that by God's will I may come to you with joy and (AV)be refreshed in your company.33 May (AW)the God of peace be with you all. Amen.

Romans 15 English Standard Version

151 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3 For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me." 4 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.

The Gospel to the Gentiles

7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. 8 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."

13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

14 I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another. 15 But on some points I have written to you very boldly by way of reminder, because of the grace given me by God 16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

17 In Christ Jesus, then, I have reason to be proud of my work for God. 18 For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me to bring the Gentiles to obedience--by word and deed, 19 by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God--so that from Jerusalem and all the way around to Illyricum I have fulfilled the ministry of the gospel of Christ; 20 and thus I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else's foundation, 21 but as it is written, "Those who have never been told of him will see, and those who have never heard will understand."

Amen.

v1-2: Paul concludes his teaching from chapter 14. The strong man's faith "allows him to eat anything," see 14.2. But we must all show concern for others, seeking to edify, and not to please ourselves.

v3: Christ is our example, putting the needs of others before His own.

v4: Commitment to learn from scripture, which was given for our benefit and learning. We strengthen our hope through the knowledge of the truth. But also, Paul has every confidence in the scriptures as the Word of God; they are both accurate and effective.

v5-6: True unity; given by the God of endurance and encouragement. He recognises that our unity takes time. But true unity implies sharing the same vision and purpose, that we might glorify God together. This follows from the teaching about treating others with love and respect.

v7: We forgive as we have been forgiven, Eph 4.32; we receive just as we have been received, 14.1. In this way we bring glory to God, for we are doing what He does.

v8-12: Christ the fulfilment of the scriptures, especially in relation to blessings upon the Gentiles. He became a "servant to the Jews (the circumcision)," that Gentiles might also share in the blessings of God, v9. Paul also answers Jewish exclusivism. Gentiles enter into the blessings of God, as developed in Eph 3, where Paul speaks of the mystery of the church. The intention is that the Gentiles might glorify God (Eph 3.10-11); this is the ultimate purpose of our lives.

Later, Paul visited Rome, Acts 28.17-29, he met with Jews there. But there was dispute over the gospel of Christ.

v13: For all, both Jew and Gentile, the blessings of God come through faith in Jesus Christ. We are therefore filled with joy and peace, we abound in hope; here is the abundance of God's blessings in our lives. There is no lesser blessing for Gentiles.

v14 – 16.16: ; Christian progress;

  • in character (v14-17),
  • in conversions (v18-21),
  • in ordered lives (v23-33);
  • in quality of fellowship (16.1-16).

v14: Full of goodness, in concern for others; filled with all knowledge, having spiritual discernment; and therefore able to admonish others, which is part of loving others.

v15: Paul is bold, daring, teaching to refresh the mind, to stir up the memory, as in 2 Pet 3.1. This is by the grace of God, Paul's gift and commission from God.

v16: The priestly ministry, teaching the people, making them sanctified, acceptable to God. In all things, Paul's desire is to be faithful to God.

v17: Paul delights in his ministry; 1 Cor 1.31; Gal 6.14, and he is encouraged to go on in his service. In contrast the world considered him mad, 2 Cor 5.13.

v18: To make the Gentiles obedient, through the gospel, bringing submission to Christ.

v19: "Fully preached;" Paul was faithful in declaring the message in its entirety. Note that signs and wonders were expected also.

Paul depended on the Spirit's power, as in 1 Cor 2.4-5. This relates to the actual proclamation of the word, as human weakness and restrictions are overcome, and sinners won to Christ, and churches established.

v20-21: Paul's motivation and drive; to preach Christ where He has not been named. He is fired also by the scripture promise that those previously ignorant and unbelieving would see and understand, through faith in Christ.

v22: Paul has therefore been travelling from place to place, necessarily delaying his visit to Rome. One can appreciate the various demands on him. He sought to plan his journeys, but always being subject to the will of God.

Paul's planning leaves room for spontaneity; where we fail to plan, we leave no such room.

v23-24: Paul has proclaimed the gospel in the eastern part of the Roman empire; everyone has heard, there is "no more place" for him to work. Where he didn't go, Phyrgia, Galatia, Bithynia (Acts 16.6-7), others went, see 1 Pet 1.1. His intention has long been to travel west, to Rome, through France, and eventually to Spain.

Visiting Rome, as in 1.12, Paul expects; "to see you ... to visit you ... to have you assist me ..." and to enjoy their company. This should be our experience in the church.

v25-26: See 2 Cor 8; Paul is going to Jerusalem, taking a gift from Macedonia and Achaia to the saints there. He is going to serve others, and be involved in others serving others.

v27: Gentiles are obliged to return kindness to the Jews. Giving in "material blessings" is part of our service, just as sharing in "spiritual blessings."

v28: Paul's visit to Jerusalem, fulfilling the Gentiles' obligation to the Jews. He expected then to be able to travel to Rome. We know that he was arrested and imprisoned, and did travel to Rome, although as a prisoner.

v29: His visit is to multiply the blessings of Christ.

v30: Paul requests prayer from Christians he has never met; here is his respect for them.

v31: Paul knows that his visit to Jerusalem will bring conflict; there are unbelievers in Judea, the problem of Christians striving to keep the law, as detailed in Acts and Galatians. Paul's fear is that his service will not be accepted.

v32: His request is that through these events, he may be filled with joy and refreshed in God. Here is a leader with many burdens, but with a joyful frame of mind.

v33: As in v5, 13, a spontaneous prayer.
