Now about our brother Apollos:1 I strongly urged him to go to you with the brothers. He was quite unwilling to go now, but he will go when he has the opportunity.
Be on your guard; stand firm2 in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.314
Do everything in love.415
You know that the household of Stephanas5 were the first converts6 in Achaia,7 and they have devoted themselves to the service8 of the saints.9 I urge you, brothers,
to submit10 to such as these and to everyone who joins in the work, and labors at it.
I was glad when Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus arrived, because they have supplied what was lacking from you.1118
For they refreshed12 my spirit and yours also. Such men deserve recognition.13
