1 Corinthians 16

And as to the collection for the saints, as I directed the churches of the Galatians, so do ye. On each first day of the week, let every one of you lay aside and preserve at home, what he is able; that there may be no collections when I come. And when I come, those whom ye shall select, I will send with a letter, to carry your bounty to Jerusalem. And if it should be suitable that I also go, they shall go with me. And I will come to you, when I pass from Macedonia; for I am about to pass through Macedonia. And perhaps I shall remain with you, or winter with you; that ye may accompany me whither I go. For I am not disposed to see you now, as I pass along; because I hope to spend some time with you, if my Lord permit me. For I shall continue at Ephesus until Pentecost: because a great door is opened to me, which is full of occupations; and the opposers are numerous. 10 And if Timothy come to you, see that he may be without fear among you; for he doeth the work of the Lord, as I do. 11 Therefore, let no one despise him; but conduct him on in peace, that he may come to me; for I wait for him with the brethren. 12 As for Apollos, my brethren, I entreated him much to go with the brethren to you; but his inclination was not to go to you now; but when he shall have opportunity, he will go to you. 13 Watch ye, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be valiant. 14 Let all your affairs be conducted with love. 15 I beseech you, my brethren, concerning the household of Stephanas; (for ye know, that they were the first-fruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to ministering to the saints ;) 16 that ye also give ear to them who are such; and to every one, that laboreth with us and aideth. 17 And I rejoice at the arrival of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for they have supplied that wherein ye were deficient towards me. 18 And they have refreshed my spirit, and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them who are such. 19 All the churches that are in Asia, salute you. Aquila and Priscilla, with the church in their house, salute you much in the Lord. 20 All the brethren salute you. Salute ye one another with a holy kiss. 21 The salutation in the handwriting of myself, Paul. 22 Whoever loveth not our Lord Jesus the Messiah, let him be accursed: our Lord cometh. 23 The grace of our Lord Jesus the Messiah be with you. 24 And my love be with you all, in the Messiah, Jesus. Amen.
