Christ the Hope of Jews and Gentiles

Romans 15

8 Now I say that j Jesus Christ has become a 1 servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, k to confirm the promises made to the fathers,

9 and l that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy, as it is written:
m "For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles,
And sing to Your name." 2

10 And again he says:
n "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!" 3

11 And again:
o "Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles!
Laud Him, all you peoples!" 4

12 And again, Isaiah says:
p "There shall be a root of Jesse;
And He who shall rise to reign over the Gentiles,
In Him the Gentiles shall hope." 5

13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all q joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
