1 Corinthians, Chapter 16

   1: Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I commanded the assemblies of Galatia, you do likewise.
   2: On the first day of the week, let each one of you save, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come.
   3: When I arrive, I will send whoever you approve with letters to carry your gracious gift to Jerusalem.
   4: If it is appropriate for me to go also, they will go with me.
   5: But I will come to you when I have passed through Macedonia, for I am passing through Macedonia.
   6: But with you it may be that I will stay, or even winter, that you may send me on my journey wherever I go.
   7: For I do not wish to see you now in passing, but I hope to stay a while with you, if the Lord permits.
   8: But I will stay at Ephesus until Pentecost,
   9: for a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
   10: Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without fear, for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do.
   11: Therefore let no one despise him. But set him forward on his journey in peace, that he may come to me; for I expect him with the brothers.
   12: Now concerning Apollos, the brother, I begged him much to come to you with the brothers; and it was not at all his desire to come now; but he will come when he has an opportunity.
   13: Watch! Stand firm in the faith! Be courageous! Be strong!
   14: Let all that you do be done in love.
   15: Now I beg you, brothers (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have set themselves to minister to the saints),
   16: that you also be in subjection to such, and to everyone who helps in the work and labors.
   17: I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus; for that which was lacking on your part, they supplied.
   18: For they refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore acknowledge those who are like that.
   19: The assemblies of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you much in the Lord, together with the assembly that is in their house.
   20: All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
   21: This greeting is by me, Paul, with my own hand.
   22: If any man doesn't love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. Come, Lord!
   23: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
   24: My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.
