Now concerning the collection for the saints: As I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
Upon the first day of the week, let every one of you lay aside in store as God hath prospered him, so that there need be no gatherings when I come.
And when I come, whomever ye shall approve by your letters I will send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.
Now I will come unto you when I shall pass through Macedonia (for I am passing through Macedonia).
And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you,Œthat ye may send me on my journey whithersoever I go.
For I will not see you now on my way, but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.
But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.
For a great door, and effectual, has opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.
Now if Timothy come, see that he may be with you without fear, for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do.

Now concerning our brother Apollos: I greatly desired that he should come unto you with the brethren, but it was not at all his will to come at this time; but he will come when it shall be convenient.
Watch ye; stand fast in the faith; acquit yourselves like men; be strong.
Let all your things be done with charity.
I beseech you, brethren (ye know the household of Stephanas and that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints),
that ye submit yourselves unto such and to everyone that helpeth with us and laboreth.
I am glad about the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.
For they have refreshed my spirit and yours; therefore acknowledge ye those who are such.
The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with a holy kiss.
The salutation of me, Paul, with mine own hand.
If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema. Maranatha!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
