   4: and if it be suitable that I also should go, they shall go with me.
   5: But I will come to you when I shall have gone through Macedonia; for I do go through Macedonia.
   6: But perhaps I will stay with you, or even winter with you, that ye may set me forward wheresoever I may go.

   12: Now concerning the brother Apollos, I begged him much that he would go to you with the brethren; but it was not at all [his] will to go now; but he will come when he shall have good opportunity.

   14: Let all things ye do be done in love.
   15: But I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first-fruits of Achaia, and they have devoted themselves to the saints for service,)
   16: that ye should also be subject to such, and to every one joined in the work and labouring.
