15:6 so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:7 Receive one another, then, just as Christ also received you, to God’s glory.
15:9 and thus the Gentiles glorify God for his mercy. 1 As it is written, “Because of this I will confess you among the Gentiles, and I will sing praises to your name.” 2 15:10 And again it says: “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.” 3 15:11 And again, “Praise the Lord all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples praise him.” 4 15:12 And again Isaiah says, “The root of Jesse will come, and the one who rises to rule over the Gentiles, in him will the Gentiles hope.” 5 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in him, 6 so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
1 tn There are two major syntactical alternatives which are both awkward: (1) One could make “glorify” dependent on “Christ has become a minister” and coordinate with “to confirm” and the result would be rendered “Christ has become a minister of circumcision to confirm the promises…and so that the Gentiles might glorify God.” (2) One could make “glorify” dependent on “I tell you” and coordinate with “Christ has become a minister” and the result would be rendered “I tell you that Christ has become a minister of circumcision…and that the Gentiles glorify God.” The second rendering is preferred.
