1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I gave order to the churches of Galatia, so also do ye. 1 Now about the collection for God's people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do.
2 Upon the first day of the week let each one of you lay by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come. 2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.

7 For I do not wish to see you now by the way; for I hope to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. 7 I do not want to see you now and make only a passing visit; I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.
8 But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost; 8 But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost,
9 for a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. 9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.
10 Now if Timothy come, see that he be with you without fear; for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do: 10 If Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is carrying on the work of the Lord, just as I am.
11 let no man therefore despise him. But set him forward on his journey in peace, that he may come unto me: for I expect him with the brethren. 11 No one, then, should refuse to accept him. Send him on his way in peace so that he may return to me. I am expecting him along with the brothers.
12 But as touching Apollos the brother, I besought him much to come unto you with the brethren: and it was not all [his] will to come now; but he will come when he shall have opportunity. 12 Now about our brother Apollos: 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.

19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Prisca salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. 19 The churches in the province of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house.
20 All the brethren salute you. Salute one another with a holy kiss. 20 All the brothers here send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
