I will visit you after passing through Macedonia—for I intend to pass through Macedonia—
and perhaps I will stay with you or even spend the winter, so that you may send me on my way, wherever I go.
I do not want to see you now just in passing, for I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.
But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost,
for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
