16:1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I commanded the assemblies of Galatia, you do likewise.
16:2 On the first day of the week, let each one of you save, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come.
16:3 When I arrive, I will send whoever you approve with letters to carry your gracious gift to Jerusalem.
16:4 If it is appropriate for me to go also, they will go with me.
16:5 But I will come to you when I have passed through Macedonia, for I am passing through Macedonia.
16:6 But with you it may be that I will stay, or even winter, that you may send me on my journey wherever I go.
16:7 For I do not wish to see you now in passing, but I hope to stay a while with you, if the Lord permits.
16:8 But I will stay at Ephesus until Pentecost,
16:9 for a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
16:10 Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without fear, for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do.
16:11 Therefore let no one despise him. But set him forward on his journey in peace, that he may come to me; for I expect him with the brothers.
16:12 Now concerning Apollos, the brother, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brothers; and it was not at all his desire to come now; but he will come when he has an opportunity.
16:13 Watch! Stand firm in the faith! Be courageous! Be strong!
16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.
16:15 Now I beg you, brothers (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have set themselves to serve the saints),
16:16 that you also be in subjection to such, and to everyone who helps in the work and labors.
16:17 I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus; for that which was lacking on your part, they supplied.
16:18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore acknowledge those who are like that.
16:19 The assemblies of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you much in the Lord, together with the assembly that is in their house.
16:20 All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
16:21 This greeting is by me, Paul, with my own hand.
16:22 If any man doesn’t love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed . Come, Lord!
16:23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
16:24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.
