15:1 We who are able should bear with the weaknesses of the unable and not only please ourselves.

15:16 that I should be a priest of Anointed Jesus to the non-Judeans. I act as a priest of the Gospel of God, so that the offering is well-accepted by the non-Judeans and made holy by the Holy Spirit.

15:19 in the power of signs and miracles, or in the power of God’s Spirit. As a result, from Jerusalem and around into Illyricum, I have finished bringing the Gospel of the Anointed.

15:20 For that reason I am ambitious to bring the Gospel where the Name of the Anointed has not yet been known, so that I don’t build upon someone else’s foundation.
