1 Corinthians 16

Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have directed the churches of Galatia, so you do also. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay aside and save something, as he has prospered, that there need be no collections when I come. And when I come, whomever you shall approve I will send with letters, to take your gift to Jerusalem. And if it seems fitting that I go also, they shall go with me. Now I will come to you, after I pass through Macedonia: for I intend to pass through Macedonia; And it may be that I will stay with you a while, or even spend the winter, that you may speed me on my journey, wherever I go. For I do not want to see you now just in passing; but I hope to stay some time with you, if the Lord permits. But I will stay at Ephesus until Pentecost, For a wide door for effectual work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. 10 Now if Timothy comes, see that he has no cause for fear while he is with you: for he is doing the work of the Lord, as I am. 11 Therefore, let no man despise him: but send him forth in peace, that he may come to me: for I am expecting him with the brethren. 12 Regarding our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to go to you with the brethren: but it was not at all his desire to go at this time; but he will come when he has the opportunity. 13 Be watchful, stand fast in the faith, act like men, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done in love. 15 I urge you, brethren, (you know that those of the house of Stephanas were the first-fruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to serving the saints,) 16 That you submit yourselves to such as these, and to everyone who helps in the work, and labours earnestly. 17 I am glad that Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus have come: for that which was lacking from you they have supplied. 18 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge such men. 19 The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Prisca greet you warmly in the Lord, along with the church that is in their house. 20 All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. 21 I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. 22 If any man does not love the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come. 23 The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. 24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
