1 Corinthians 16
1 Now concerning the collection which is *for the holy-ones, just-as I commanded to the congregations* of Galatia, so you* also, practice* such! 2 Every first day of the week, let each of you* place beside himself, storing up, if he prospers in anything, in order that whenever I come, no collections may happen then. 3 Now whenever I come, I will be sending whomever you* approve through letters, to carry your* favor to Jerusalem; 4 and if it is also worthy for me to travel there; they will be traveling together with me. 5 But I will be coming to you*, whenever I go through Macedonia; for* I am going through Macedonia. 6 Now after I have been there; I will be remaining or even will be wintering with you*, in order that you* may send me onward to wherever I am traveling. 7 For* I do not wish to see you* now on the way, but I am hoping to remain with you* some time, if the Lord permits. 8 But I will be remaining in Ephesus until the Pentecost; 9 for* a large and effective door has opened to me and many are laying in opposition to me.
10 Now if Timothy comes, see* to it, in order that he may become fearless toward you*; for* he is working the work of the Lord, as I also am. 11 Therefore let no one scorn him. But send* him onward in peace, in order that he may come to me; for* I am waiting for him with the brethren. 12 Now concerning Apollos the brother, I encouraged him many times in order that he should come to you* with the brethren and it was certainly not his will in order that he should come now, but he will be coming whenever he has an opportunity. 13 Watch*. Stand-firm* in the faith. Be* manly. Be* powerful. 14 Let all your* things happen in love*.
15 Now you* know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first-fruit of Achaia and that they have appointed themselves to serve the holy-ones. I encourage you* brethren, 16 in order that you* may also be subject to those who are such and to everyone working together with us and laboring with them. 17 Now I am rejoicing on the presence of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they fulfilled this lack of yours*, 18 for* they gave-rest to my spirit and yours*. Therefore recognize* those who are such. 19 The congregations* of Asia greet you*. Aquila and Priscilla greet you* much in the Lord, together with the congregation* in their house. 20 All the brethren greet you*. Greet* one another with* a holy kiss.
21 The greeting from Paul with my own hand. 22 If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. The Lord has come! 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is with you*. 24 My love* is with all of you* in Christ Jesus. Amen.
