1: Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I gave order to the churches of Galatia, so also do ye. 2: Upon the first day of the week let each one of you lay by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come. 3: And when I arrive, whomsoever ye shall approve, them will I send with letters to carry your bounty unto Jerusalem: 4: and if it be meet for me to go also, they shall go with me. 5: But I will come unto you, when I shall have passed through Macedonia; for I pass through Macedonia; 6: but with you it may be that I shall abide, or even winter, that ye may set me forward on my journey whithersoever I go. 7: For I do not wish to see you now by the way; for I hope to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. 8: But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost; 9: for a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. 10: Now if Timothy come, see that he be with you without fear; for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do: 11: let no man therefore despise him. But set him forward on his journey in peace, that he may come unto me: for I expect him with the brethren. 12: But as touching Apollos the brother, I besought him much to come unto you with the brethren: and it was not all [his] will to come now; but he will come when he shall have opportunity. 13: Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 14: Let all that ye do be done in love. 15: Now I beseech you, brethren (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have set themselves to minister unto the saints), 16: that ye also be in subjection unto such, and to every one that helpeth in the work and laboreth. 17: And I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they supplied. 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 salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. 20: All the brethren salute you. Salute one another with a holy kiss. 21: The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. 22: If any man loveth not the Lord, let him be anathema. Maranatha. 23: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24: My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
