1 Corinthians 16

1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do you.

2 On the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God has prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

3 And when I come, whomsoever you shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality to Jerusalem.

4 And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.

5 Now I will come to you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia.

6 And it may be that I will abide, yes, and winter with you, that you may bring me on my journey wherever I go.

7 For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.

8 But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.

9 For a great door and effectual is opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

10 Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he works the work of the Lord, as I also do.

11 Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come to me: for I look for him with the brothers.

12 As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come to you with the brothers: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.

13 Watch you, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

14 Let all your things be done with charity.

15 I beseech you, brothers, (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)

16 That you submit yourselves to such, and to every one that helps with us, and labors.

17 I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.

18 For they have refreshed my spirit and your': therefore acknowledge you them that are such.

19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.

20 All the brothers greet you. Greet you one another with an holy kiss.

21 The salutation of me Paul with my own hand.

22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.

23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
