But concerning1Apollos our brother, I encouraged him greatly to come to you with the brethren; and it was not at all his desire to comenow, but he will comewhen he has opportunity.
132Be on the alert, 3standfirm in the faith, 4actlikemen, 5be strong.
Let all that you do be done6in love.
15Now I urge you, brethren (you know the 7household of Stephanas, that athey were the 8firstfruits of 9Achaia, and that they have devotedthemselves for 10ministry to 11the saints ),
that 12you also be in subjection to suchmen and to everyone who helps in the work and labors.
I rejoiceover the b13coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have csupplied14what was lacking on your part.
For they 15have refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore16acknowledgesuchmen.
The churches of 17Asiagreet you. 18Aquila and Priscagreet you heartily in the Lord, with 19the church that is in their house.
20All the brethrengreet you. 20Greetoneanother with a holykiss.
The greeting is in 21my ownhand -dPaul.
22Ifanyone does not love the Lord, he is to be e22accursed. f23Maranatha.
