Romans 15:7-13 NWT
7 Therefore welcome one another, just as the Christ also welcomed us, with glory to God in view. 8 For I say that Christ actually became a minister of those who are circumcised in behalf of God's truthfulness, so as to verify the promises He made to their forefathers, 9 and that the nations might glorify God for his mercy. Just as it is written: "That is why I will openly acknowledge you among the nations and to your name I will make melody." 10 And again he says: "Be glad, you nations, with his people." 11 And again: "Praise Jehovah, all you nations, and let all the peoples praise him." 12 And again Isaiah says: "There will be the root of Jesse, and there will be one arising to rule nations; on him nations will rest their hope." 13 May the God who gives hope fill you with all joy and peace by your believing, that you may abound in hope with power of holy spirit.

Romans 15:7-13 ALT (7) For this reason, be receiving one another, just as also Christ received you*, to [the] glory of God. (8) Now I say Christ Jesus has become a servant of [the] circumcision on behalf of the truth of God, in order to confirm the promises to the fathers, (9) and the Gentiles to glorify God on behalf of mercy, just as it has been written, "For this reason I Myself will confess [or, will give praise] to You among Gentiles, and I will sing praise to Your name." [2Sam 22:50] (10) And again it [or, he] says, "Celebrate, [O] Gentiles, with His people!" [Deut 32:43] (11) And again, "Be praising the LORD, all you* Gentiles; and highly praise Him, all you* peoples!" [Psalm 117:1] (12) And again, Isaiah says, "[There] will be the root [or, shoot; fig., descendent] of Jesse, and the One rising up to rule Gentiles [or, nations], Gentiles will hope on [or, trust in] Him." [Isaiah 11:10] (13) Now may the God of hope [or, confident expectation] fill you* with all joy and peace [or, freedom from anxiety] in the believing, in order for you* to be abounding in hope in [the] power of [the] Holy Spirit.
