VIII. Conclusion --
The Consummation of the Gospel
A. The Gentiles Offered
14 But I myself also am persuaded concerning you, my brothers, that you yourselves also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.
15 But I have written the more boldly to you on some points so as to remind you of them again because of the agrace given to me by God
16 That I might be a 1minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, a 2laboring 3apriest of the gospel of God, in order that the boffering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, having been csanctified in the Holy Spirit.
17 I have therefore my 1aboasting in Christ Jesus bin the things pertaining to God.
18 For I will not dare to speak anything of the things which aChrist has not accomplished through me for the bobedience of the Gentiles, by word and by work,
19 In the power of asigns and wonders, in the bpower of the Spirit of God; so that cfrom Jerusalem and round about to 1Illyricum, I have 2dfully preached the gospel of Christ,
20 But have done so aspiring to announce the gospel not where Christ has been named, so that I would not build upon aanother's foundation;
21 But as it is written, a"They will see, they to whom nothing concerning Him was announced; and those who have not heard will understand.''
22 For this reason also I have been ahindered these many times from coming to you.
23 But now I no longer have place in these regions and have had a desire since many years ago to acome to you
24 Whenever I may go to 1aSpain, for I hope to see you in passing and be bsent forward there by you, if first I am cfilled, at least in part, by your company.
