1 Corinthians 16

CLV(i) 1 Now, concerning the collection for the saints, even as I prescribe to the ecclesias of Galatia, thus do you also." 2 On one of the sabbaths let each of you lay aside by himself in store that in which he should be prospered, that no collections may be occurring then, whenever I may come." 3 Now whenever I may be coming along, whomsoever you should be attesting through letters, these shall I be sending to carry away your grace to Jerusalem." 4 Now if it should be worth while for me also to be going, they shall be going together with me." 5 Now I shall be coming to you whenever I may pass through Macedonia, for I am passing through Macedonia." 6 Now, perchance, I shall be abiding with you, or wintering also, that you should be sending me forward wheresoever I may be going." 7 For I do not want to see you at present on the way, for I am expecting to stay some time with you, if ever the Lord should permit." 8 Yet I shall stay in Ephesus till Pentecost, 9 for a door has opened for me, great and operative, and many are opposing." 10 Now if Timothy should be coming, look to it that he should be with you fearlessly, for he is working at the work of the Lord, as I also." 11 No one, then, should be scorning him. Now send him forward in peace, that he may be coming to me, for I am awaiting him with the brethren." 12 Now concerning brother Apollos, I entreat him much that he may be coming to you with the brethren, and it was undoubtedly not his will that he should come now, yet he will come whenever he should have an opportunity." 13 Watch! Stand firm in the faith! Be manly! Be staunch! 14 Let all your actions occur in love! 15 Now I am entreating you, brethren - you are acquainted with the house of Stephanas and Fortunatus, that it is the firstfruit of Achaia, and they set themselves to the service for the saints -" 16 that you also may be subject to such, and to every fellow worker and toiler." 17 Now I am rejoicing at the presence of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, for this deficiency of yours, these men fill up, 18 for they soothe my spirit and yours. Then be recognizing such. 19 Greeting you are the ecclesias of the province of Asia. Greeting you much in the Lord are Aquila and Prisca, together with the ecclesia of their house." 20 Greeting you are all the brethren. Greet one another with a holy kiss. 21 The salutation is by my hand - Paul's. 22 If anyone is not fond of the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema! Maran atha!" 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you! 24 My love be with all of you in Christ Jesus! Amen!
