1 Corinthians 16

Godbey(i) 1 But concerning the contribution to the saints, as I commanded the churches of Galatia, so you also do. 2 On the first day of the week let each one of you lay by with himself treasuring up, that as to whatsoever he may be prospered, in order that there may be no collections at that time when I may come. 3 But when I may be present, whomsoever you may approve by your letters, these will I send to carry away your benefaction to Jerusalem: 4 if it may be counted worthy for me also to go, they shall go along with me. 5 But I will come to you when I may go through Macedonia; for I do go through Macedonia; 6 and perhaps I may abide with you, and even spend the winter with you, in order that you may send me forward whithersoever I may go. 7 For I do not wish merely to see you in my journey; for I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord may permit. 8 But I shall abide in Ephesus until Pentecost; 9 for a door is opened unto me great and effectual, and there are many antagonizing. 10 But if Timothy may come, see that he may be with you without fear; for he is doing the work of the Lord, as I also: 11 therefore let no one snub him. But send him forth in peace, in order that he may come to me: for I await him with the brethren. 12 But concerning brother Apollos, I entreated him much, that he may come to you with the brethren: but it was not altogether his will that he may come now; but he will come when he may have opportunity. 13 Watch, stand in the faith, be men, be strong. 14 Let all your affairs be in divine love. 15 But I exhort you, brethren; (know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruit of Achaia, and they have set themselves to minister unto the saints), 16 in order that you may indeed be in subjection unto such, and to every one laboring with you and toiling. 17 But I rejoice over the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: because they have supplied your deficiency: 18 for they refreshed my spirit and yours. Acknowledge ye therefore them that are such. 19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Prisca along with the church and their house salute you. 20 All the brethren salute you. Salute you one another with a holy kiss. 21 The salutation of me Paul with my own hand. 22 If any one loves not the Lord as a friend, let him be anathema Maran atha. 23 The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. 24 My love with you all in Christ Jesus.
