Rejoice! (Rom 15:10)

“Again,

It is said.

‘Rejoice!

O gentiles!

With his people!’”

καὶ πάλιν λέγει Εὐφράνθητε, ἔθνη, μετὰ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ.

Paul said that again (καὶ πάλιν λέγει).  “Rejoice (Εὐφράνθητε)!  O gentiles (ἔθνη)! with his people (μετὰ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ)!”  This time Paul cited Deuteronomy, chapter 32:43, from the Song of Moses that ended with this phrase.  “Praise, O heavens, his people, worship him, all you divine beings!”  Everyone should worship Yahweh.  Paul indicated that gentiles, the non-Jewish people, should also rejoice with God’s people, the Hebrews.  He cited a verse from the Jewish Torah, that everything and everyone should rejoice and praise God.  Do you believe that everyone should praise God?
