New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
5 I am coming to visit you after I have been to Macedonia, for I am planning to travel through Macedonia. 5 After I go through Macedonia, I will come to you--for I will be going through Macedonia.
6 It could be that I will stay awhile with you, perhaps all winter, and then you can send me on my way to the next destination. 6 Perhaps I will stay with you awhile, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go.
7 This time I don't want to make just a short visit and then go right on. I want to come and stay awhile, if the Lord will let me. 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 In the meantime, I will be staying here at Ephesus until the Festival of Pentecost, 8 But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost,
9 for there is a wide-open door for a great work here, and many people are responding. But there are many who oppose me. 9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.
