1: And concerning the collection that [is] for the saints, as I directed to the assemblies of Galatia, so also ye -- do ye; 2: on every first [day] of the week, let each one of you lay by him, treasuring up whatever he may have prospered, that when I may come then collections may not be made; 3: and whenever I may come, whomsoever ye may approve, through letters, these I will send to carry your favour to Jerusalem; 4: and if it be meet for me also to go, with me they shall go. 5: And I will come unto you, when I pass through Macedonia -- for Macedonia I do pass through -- 6: and with you, it may be, I will abide, or even winter, that ye may send me forward whithersoever I go, 7: for I do not wish to see you now in the passing, but I hope to remain a certain time with you, if the Lord may permit; 8: and I will remain in Ephesus till the Pentecost, 9: for a door to me hath been opened -- great and effectual -- and withstanders [are] many. 10: And if Timotheus may come, see that he may become without fear with you, for the work of the Lord he doth work, even as I, 11: no one, then, may despise him; and send ye him forward in peace, that he may come to me, for I expect him with the brethren; 12: and concerning Apollos our brother, much I did entreat him that he may come unto you with the brethren, and it was not at all [his] will that he may come now, and he will come when he may find convenient. 13: Watch ye, stand in the faith; be men, be strong; 14: let all your things be done in love. 15: And I entreat you, brethren, ye have known the household of Stephanas, that it is the first-fruit of Achaia, and to the ministration to the saints they did set themselves -- 16: that ye also be subject to such, and to every one who is working with [us] and labouring; 17: and I rejoice over the presence of Stephanas, and Fortunatus, and Achaicus, because the lack of you did these fill up; 18: for they did refresh my spirit and yours; acknowledge ye, therefore, those who [are] such. 19: Salute you do the assemblies of Asia; salute you much in the Lord do Aquilas and Priscilla, with the assembly in their house; 20: salute you do all the brethren; salute ye one another in an holy kiss. 21: The salutation of [me] Paul with my hand; 22: if any one doth not love the Lord Jesus Christ -- let him be anathema! The Lord hath come! 23: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ [is] with you; 24: my love [is] with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
