5. According to Christ
  1. But we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those who are weak and not to please ourselves.
  2. Let each of us please his neighbor with a view to what is good for building up.
  3. For Christ also did not please Himself, but as it is written, The reproaches of those who reproached You fell upon Me.
  4. For the things that were written previously were written for our instruction, in order that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
  5. Now the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind toward one another according to Christ Jesus,
  6. That with one accord you may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  7. Therefore receive one another, as Christ also received you to the glory of God.
  8. For I say that Christ has become a servant of the circumcision for the sake of Gods truthfulness, to confirm the promises given to the fathers,
  9. And that the Gentiles should glorify God for His mercy, as it is written, Therefore I will extol You among the Gentiles, and I will sing praise to Your name.
  10. And again he says, Rejoice, Gentiles, with His people.
  11. And again, Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples speak praise to Him.
  12. And again, Isaiah says, There shall be the root of Jesse, even He who rises to rule the Gentiles; on Him will the Gentiles hope.
  13. Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope in the power of the Holy Spirit.
