ContextPaul's Plan to Visit Spain and Rome
23But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come to you; 24Whenever 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. 25But now I go to Jerusalem to minister to the saints. 26For it has pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. 27It has pleased them truly; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in carnal things. 28When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain. 29And I am sure that, when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ. 30Now I beseech you, brothers, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that you strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; 31That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints; 32That I may come to you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed. 33Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
