A. 22 For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you. 23 But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you; 24 Whensoever 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.
B. 25 But now I go unto JERUSALEM
C. to minister unto THE SAINTS.
D. 26 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution
C′. for the poor SAINTS
B′. which are at JERUSALEM.
A′. 27 It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. 28 When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you INTO SPAIN. 29 And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.
