5 I shall come to you after passing through Macedonia; for my plan will be to pass through Macedonia;
6 and I shall make some stay with you perhaps, or even spend the winter with you, in order that you may help me forward, whichever way I travel.
7 For I do not wish to see you on this occasion merely in passing; but if the Lord permits, I hope to remain some time with you.
8 I shall remain in Ephesus, however, until the time of the Harvest Festival,
9 for a wide door stands open before me which demands great efforts, and we have many opponents.
