1 Corinthians 16:1-3

The Collection for the Saints

1Now concerning
The expression  Now concerning introduces a reply to a question in the Corinthians’ letter; see 7:1; also verse 12
b  the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do.
2On c  the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, d  as he may prosper e  so that there will be no collecting when I come. 3And when I arrive, I will send f  those whom you accredit by letter to carry your gift to Jerusalem.
