15:1 Forsooth we firmer owe to sustain the feebleness of sick men, and not to please to ourselves. We which are strong ought to bear the frailness of them which are weak, and not to stand in our own conceits. We which are strong, ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. We then that are strong, ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
15:2 Each of us please to his neighbour into good, to edification. Let every man please his neighbour unto his wealth and edifying. Therefore let every man please his neighbour in that that is good to edification. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
15:3 For why Christ pleased not to himself, but, as it is written, The reproves of men displeasing thee, fell on me. For Christ pleased not himself: but as it is written: The rebukes of them which rebuked thee, fell on me. For Christ also would not please himself, but as it is written, The rebukes of them which rebuke thee, fell on me. For even Christ pleased not himself, but as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee, fell on me.
15:4 For whatever things be written, they be written to our teaching, that by patience and comfort of scriptures we have hope. Whatsoever things are written aforetime, are written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the scripture should have hope. For whatsoever things are written aforetime, are written for our learning, that we through patience, & comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 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 But God of patience and of solace give to you to understand the same thing, each into other after Jesus Christ, God which is lord of patience and consolation, give unto every one of you, that ye be like minded one towards another after the ensample of Jesus Christ, Now the God of patience and consolation give you that ye be like minded one towards another, according to Christ Jesus, Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like minded one towards another, according to Christ Jesus:
15:6 that ye of one will with one mouth worship God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. that ye all agreeing together, may with one mouth praise god the father of our lord Jesus. That ye with one mind, and with one mouth may praise God even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:7 For which thing take ye together, as also Christ took you into the honour of God. Wherefore receive ye one another as Christ received us, to the praise of god. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.
15:8 For I say, that Jesus Christ was a minister of circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises of fathers. And I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of god, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers. 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. 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:
15:9 And heathen men owe to honour God for mercy; as it is written, Therefore, Lord, I shall acknowledge to thee among heathen men, and I shall sing to thy name. And let the gentiles praise God for his mercy. As it is written: For this cause I will praise thee among the gentiles, and sing in thy name. And let the Gentiles praise God for his mercy, as it is written, For this cause I will confess thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy Name. 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.
15:10 And again he saith, Glad, ye heathen men with his people. And again he saith: ye gentiles rejoice with his people. And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles with his people. And again he saith, Rejoice ye Gentiles with his people.
15:11 And again, All heathen men, praise ye the Lord; and all peoples, magnify ye him. Again, praise the lord all ye gentiles, and laud him all nations. And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles, & laud ye him, all people together. And again, Praise the Lord all ye Gentiles, and laud him all ye people.
15:12 And again Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, that shall rise to govern heathen men, and heathen men shall hope in him. And in another place Esaias saith: there shall be the root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the gentiles: in him shall the gentiles trust. 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. 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.
15:13 And God of hope full-fill you in all joy and peace in believing, that ye abound in hope and virtue of the Holy Ghost.

And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, and filled with all knowledge, and are able to admonish one another. 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.
15:15 And, brethren, more hardily I wrote to you of part, as bringing you into mind, for the grace that is given to me of God, Nevertheless brethren I have somewhat boldly written unto you, as one that putteth you in remembrance, for the grace which is given me of God Nevertheless brethren, I have somewhat boldly after a sort written unto you, as one that putteth you in remembrance, through the grace that is given me of God, 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,
15:16 that I be the minister of Christ Jesus among heathen men. I hallowing the gospel of God, that the offering of heathen men be made acceptable, and hallowed in the Holy Ghost. for this purpose that I should be the minister of Jesus Christ among the gentiles, and should minister the glad tidings of God, that the gentiles might be an acceptable offering, sanctified by the holy ghost. That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ toward the Gentiles, ministering the Gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable being sanctified by the holy Ghost. 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.
15:17 Therefore I have glory in Christ Jesus to God. I have therefore whereof I may rejoice in Christ Jesus, in those things which pertain to God. I have therefore whereof I may rejoice in Christ Jesus in those things which pertain to God. I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ, in those things which pertain to God.
15:18 For I dare not speak any thing of those things, which Christ maketh not by me, into obedience of heathen men, in word and deeds, For I dare not speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me (to make the gentiles obedient) with word and deed, For I dare not speak of any thing, which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient in word and deed, 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,
15:19 in virtue of tokens and great wonders, in virtue of the Holy Ghost, so that from Jerusalem by compass, till unto Illyricum I have full-filled the gospel of Christ. in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and the coasts round about, unto Illyricum, I have filled all countries with glad tidings of Christ. With the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God: so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have caused to abound the Gospel of Christ. Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Hierusalem and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the Gospel of Christ.
15:20 And so I have preached this gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I build upon another’s ground, So have I enforced myself to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should have built on another man’s foundation: Yea, so I enforced myself to preach the Gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should have built on another man’s foundation. Yea, so have I strived to preach the Gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:
15:21 but as it is written, For to whom it is not told of him, they shall see, and they that heard not, shall understand. but as it is written: To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that heard not, shall understand. But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see him, & they that heard not, shall understand him. 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 thing I was letted full much to come to you, and I am forbidden till unto yet. For this cause I have been oft let to come unto you: Therefore also I have been oft let to come unto you. For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you.
15:23 Forsooth now I not having further place in these countries, soothly having covetousness of coming to you, of many years now going before. but now seeing I have no more to do in these countries, and also have been desirous many years to come unto you, But now seeing I have no more place in these quarters, and also have been desirous many years agone to come unto you, But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you:
15:24 When I shall begin to pass into Spain, I hope that I passing forth shall see you, and of you I shall be led thither, if I use you first in part. when I shall take my journey into spain, I will come to you. I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you after that I have somewhat enjoyed you. When I shall take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, & to be brought on my way thitherward by you, after that I have been somewhat filled with your company. 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 Therefore now I shall pass forth to Jerusalem, to minister to saints. Now go I to Jerusalem, and minister unto the saints. But now go I to Jerusalem, to minister unto the Saints. But now I go unto Hierusalem, to minister unto the Saints.
15:26 Forsooth Macedonia and Achaia proved to make some collection into poor men of saints, that be in Jerusalem. For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia, to make a certain distribution upon the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia, to make a certain distribution unto the poor Saints which are at Jerusalem. For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia, to make a certain contribution for the poor Saints which are at Hierusalem.
15:27 Soothly it pleased to them, and they be debtors of them; for if heathen men be made partners of their ghostly things, they owe also in fleshly things to minister to them. It hath pleased them verily, and their debtors are they. For if the gentiles be made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is to minister unto them in carnal things. For it hath pleased them, and their debtors are they: for if the Gentiles be made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. 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.
15:28 Therefore when I have ended this thing, and have assigned to them this fruit, I shall pass by you into Spain. When I have performed this, and have shewed them this fruit, I will come back again by you into spain.

When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.

And I know when I come, that I shall come to you with abundance of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ. And I am sure that when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the Gospel of Christ.
15:30 Therefore, brethren, I beseech you by our Lord Jesus Christ, and by the charity of the Holy Ghost, that ye help me in your prayers for me to the Lord, I beseech you brethren for our lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the spirit, that ye help me in my business, with your prayers to god for me, Also brethren I beseech you for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye would strive with me by prayers to God for me.

15:32 that I come to you in joy, by the will of God, and that I be refreshed with you. that I may come unto you with joy, by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed.
