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
The churches in the province of Asia14 send you greetings. Aquila and Priscillaa15 greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house.1620
All the brothers here send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.1721
I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand.1822
If anyone does not love the Lord19--a curse20 be on him. Come, O Lordb !21
