2 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. 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 will not see you now in passing, for I hope to remain a certain time 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.

9 For a great door is opened to me and an effectual [one], and [the] adversaries many. 9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.
10 Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear; for he works the work of the Lord, even as I. 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 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. 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 Now concerning the brother Apollos, I begged him much that he would go to you with the brethren; but it was not at all [his] will to go now; but he will come when he shall have good 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.

I urge you, brothers,

19 The assemblies of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla, with the assembly in their house, salute you much in [the] Lord. 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.
