16 Now concerning athe collection for bthe saints, as cI have given order to dthe churches of eGalatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon fthe first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, gas God hath hprospered him, ithat there be no gatherings when I come. 3 And when I come, jwhomsoever ye shall kapprove by your letters, them will I send to bring your †liberality unto Jerusalem. 4 And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me. 5 Now I will come unto you, lwhen I shall pass through mMacedonia: for nI do pass through Macedonia. 6 And oit may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may pbring me on my journey whithersoever I go. 7 For I will not see you qnow by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, rif the Lord permit. 8 But I will tarry at sEphesus until tPentecost. 9 For ua great door and effectual is opened unto me, and vthere are many adversaries. 10 Now wif xTimotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for yhe worketh zthe work of the Lord, as I also do. 11 aLet no man therefore despise him: but pconduct him forth bin peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren. 12 As touching cour brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time. 13 dWatch ye, estand fast in the faith, fquit you like men, fgbe strong. 14 hLet all your things be done with charity.
15 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of iStephanas, that it is kthe firstfruits of lAchaia, and that they have addicted themselves to mnthe ministry of the saints,) 16 oThat ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and nlaboureth. 17 I am glad of the coming of iStephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: pfor that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. 18 For they have qrefreshed my spirit and yours: therefore oacknowledge ye them that are such. 19 The churches of rAsia salute you. sAquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, twith the church that is in their house. 20 All the brethren greet you. uGreet ye one another with an holy kiss.
21 vThe salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. 22 wIf any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be xAnathema yMaran-atha. 23 zThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
The first epistle to the Corinthians was written from aPhilippi bby Stephanas, and Fortunatus, and Achaicus, and Timotheus.
