1 Corinthians 161Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do you. 2On the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God has prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. 3And when I come, whomsoever you shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality to Jerusalem. 4And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me. 5Now I will come to you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia. 6And it may be that I will abide, yes, and winter with you, that you may bring me on my journey wherever I go. 7For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. 8But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. 9For a great door and effectual is opened to me, and there are many adversaries. 10Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he works the work of the Lord, as I also do. 11Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come to me: for I look for him with the brothers. 12As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come to you with the brothers: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time. 13Watch you, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 14Let all your things be done with charity. 15I beseech you, brothers, (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) 16That you submit yourselves to such, and to every one that helps with us, and labors. 17I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. 18For they have refreshed my spirit and your's: therefore acknowledge you them that are such. 19The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. 20All the brothers greet you. Greet you one another with an holy kiss. 21The salutation of me Paul with my own hand. 22If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. 23The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
