22 For this reason cI also have been much hindered from coming to you. 23 But now no longer having a place in these parts, and dhaving a great desire these many years to come to you, 24 whenever I journey to Spain, 8I shall come to you. For I hope to see you on my journey, eand to be helped on my way there by you, if first I may fenjoy your company for a while. 25 But now gI am going to Jerusalem to 9minister to the saints. 26 For hit pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the saints who are in Jerusalem. 27 It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors. For iif the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, jtheir duty is also to minister to them in material things. 28 Therefore, when I have performed this and have sealed to them kthis fruit, I shall go by way of you to Spain. 29 lBut I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing 1of the gospel of Christ.
30 Now I beg you, brethren, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and mthrough the love of the Spirit, nthat you strive together with me in prayers to God for me, 31 othat I may be delivered from those in Judea who 2do not believe, and that pmy service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints, 32 qthat I may come to you with joy rby the will of God, and may sbe refreshed together with you. 33 Now tthe God of peace be with you all. Amen.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
