1 BUT concerning what is collected for the saints, as I have instructed the churches of Galatia, so also do you.
2 On each first day of the week let every one of you at his own house lay by and keep something of that which cometh unto his hands, lest when I come there be then collections.
3 And when I come, those whom you shall choose, them will I send with an epistle, that they may take your bounty to Urishlem.
4 But if it be a fit work that I too go (thither), they also shall go with me.
5 But I will come to you when I shall have passed (round) from Makedunia: for I pass unto it, unto Makedunia.
6 And perhaps also I may remain with you, or I may winter with you, that you may lead me on to the place to which I shall go.
7 For I will not now see you as I pass the way; for I hope to abide a time with you, if my Lord permit me.
8 For I remain at Ephesos until the Pentecost.
9 For a great door is opened to me, which is full of labours, and the opposers are many.
10 But if Timotheos come among you, see that he may be with you without fear; for he doeth the work of the Lord, as I .
11 Wherefore let no man despise him, but conduct him in peace, that he may come to me; for I wait for him with the brethren.
12 But of Apolo, my brethren, I begged much to come to you with the brethren; nevertheless it was not his will to come to you; but when there shall be opportunity he will come to you.
13 WATCH, and stand in the faith; be manful and be strong.
14 And let all your affairs be done in love.
15 But I entreat of you, my brethren, for the house of Stephano, because you know they are the first-fruits of Akaia, and have disposed themselves for the service of the saints,
16 that you be submissive to such as they, and to every one who laboureth with us and helpeth.
17 But I am glad of the coming of Stephano, and of Fortunatos, and of Akaiakos, because your deficiency with me they have fulfilled.
18 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours. Wherefore acknowledge those who are such.
19 All the churches of Asia ask for your peace; Akilos and Priskila, with the church which is in their house, ask for your peace greatly in our Lord.
20 All the brethren ask for your peace. Ask the peace of one another with the holy kiss.
21 Peace, by the writing of my hand, of PAULOS.
22 Whosoever loveth not our Lord Jeshu Meshiha, let him be accursed. Our Lord cometh.
23 The grace of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha be with you.
24 And my love be with you all in the Meshiha Jeshu Amen.
