1 Corinthians 16:1-9 RSV

1 Now concerning the contribution for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do.
2 On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that contributions need not be made when I come.
3 And when I arrive, I will send those whom you accredit by letter to carry your gift to Jerusalem.
4 If it seems advisable that I should go also, they will accompany me.
5 I will visit you after passing through Macedo'nia, for I intend to pass through Macedo'nia,
6 and perhaps I will stay with you or even spend the winter, so that you may speed me on my journey, wherever I go.
7 For I do not want to see you now just in passing; I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.
8 But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost,
9 for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
