Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I directed a the assemblies of Galatia, so do *ye* do also.
On [the] first of [the] week let each of you put by at home, laying up [in] whatever [degree] he may have prospered, that there may be no collections when I come.
And when I am arrived, whomsoever ye shall approve, these I will send with letters b to carry your bounty to Jerusalem:
and if it be suitable that *I* also should go, they shall go with me.
But I will come to you when I shall have gone through Macedonia; for I do go through Macedonia.
But perhaps I will stay with you, or even winter with you, that *ye* may set me forward wheresoever I may go.
For I will c not see you now in passing, for I hope to remain a certain time with you, if the Lord permit.
But I remain in Ephesus until Pentecost.
For a great door is opened to me and an effectual [one], and [the] adversaries many.
Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear; for he works the work of the Lord, even as I.
Let not therefore any one despise him; but set him forward in peace, that he may come to me; for I expect him with the brethren.
Now concerning the brother Apollos, I begged him much d that he would go to you with the brethren; but it was not at all [his] will e to go now; but he will come when he shall have good opportunity.
Be vigilant; stand fast in the faith; quit yourselves like men; be strong.
Let all things ye do f be done in love.
But I beseech you, brethren, (ye know g the house of Stephanas, that it is the first-fruits of Achaia, and they have devoted themselves h to the saints for service,)
that *ye* should also be subject to such, and to every one joined in the work and labouring.
But I rejoice in the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus; because *they* have supplied what was lacking on your part.
For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: own therefore such.
The assemblies of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla, with the assembly in their house, salute you much in [the] Lord.
All the brethren salute you. Salute one another with a holy kiss.
The salutation of [me] Paul with my own hand.
If any one love i not the Lord [Jesus Christ] let him be Anathema Maranatha. j23
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you.
My love [be] with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
