In this passage of Romans, Paul is drawing a large argument to a close in which he has been appealing for unity in the Church (14:1-15:13). The imperative in v. 7 "Therefore welcome one another" is grounded in Christ's saving work "just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." Verses 8-12 serve as a basis for this claim that Christ has welcomed you, both Jew and Gentile, for the glory of God. Verses 9-9a are Paul's summary statement of the way that Christ has welcomed both Jew and Gentile and upheld the glory and truthfulness of God, and in v. 9b-12 he turns to the Scriptures for support. Paul cites 2 Sam 22:50, Deut 32:43, Psalm 117:1, and Isaiah 11:10 in rapid succession to support his claim. The common thread throughout these texts from the law, prophets, and writings is that the nations/ Gentiles are pictured as praising God together with Israel, ultimately because they will hope in the same Davidic Messiah (Isa 11:10). This note of hope in v. 12 leads Paul seamlessly into prayer to the "God of hope" in v. 13.
