|Romans 15: 4 - 9
||For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.
||May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,
||that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
||Welcome one another, therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
||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,
||and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, "Therefore I will praise thee among the Gentiles, and sing to thy name";
