12 Now concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to visit you with the other brothers, but it was not at all his will to come now.

14 Let all that you do be done in love. 14 Do everything in love.

I urge you, brothers,
16 be subject to such as these, and to every fellow worker and laborer. 16 to submit to such as these and to everyone who joins in the work, and labors at it.
17 I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have made up for your absence, 17 I was glad when Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus arrived, because they have supplied what was lacking from you.
18 for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. Give recognition to such men. 18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours also. Such men deserve recognition.
