The Epistle of Paul to the First Corinthians
16: 1Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I gave order to the churches
of Galatia, so also do ye. 16:2Upon the first day of the week let each one of you lay
by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come.
16:3And when I arrive, whomsoever ye shall approve, them will I send with letters
to carry your bounty unto Jerusalem: 16:4and if it be meet for me to go also, they
shall go with me. 16:5But I will come unto you, when I shall have passed through
Macedonia; for I pass through Macedonia; 16:6but with you it may be that I shall
abide, or even winter, that ye may set me forward on my journey whithersoever I
go. 16:7For I do not wish to see you now by the way; for I hope to tarry a while with
you, if the Lord permit. 16:8But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost; 16:9for a great
door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. 16:10Now if
Timothy come, see that he be with you without fear; for he worketh the work of
the Lord, as I also do: 16:11let no man therefore despise him. But set him forward on
his journey in peace, that he may come unto me: for I expect him with the
brethren. 16:12But as touching Apollos the brother, I besought him much to come
unto you with the brethren: and it was not all his will to come now; but he will
come when he shall have opportunity. 16:13Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you
like men, be strong. 16:14Let all that ye do be done in love. 16:15Now I beseech you,
brethren (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and
that they have set themselves to minister unto the saints), 16:16that ye also be in
subjection unto such, and to every one that helpeth in the work and laboreth.
16:17And I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that
which was lacking on your part they supplied. 16:18For they refreshed my spirit and
yours: acknowledge ye therefore them that are such. 16:19The churches of Asia
salute you. Aquila and Prisca salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is
in their house. 16:20All the brethren salute you. Salute one another with a holy kiss.
16:21The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. 16:22If any man loveth not the
Lord, let him be anathema. Maranatha. 16:23The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be
with you. 16:24My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
