1 Coríntios 16

1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I gave order to the churches of Galatia, so you{+} also do.

2 On the first day of the week let each of you{+} lay by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come.

3 And when I arrive, whomever you{+} will approve, I will send them with letters to carry your{+} bounty to Jerusalem:

4 and if it is meet for me to go also, they will go with me.

5 But I will come to you{+}, when I will have passed through Macedonia; for I pass through Macedonia;

6 but with you{+} it may be that I will stay, or even winter, that you{+} may set me forward on my journey wherever I go.

7 For I do not wish to see you{+} now by the way; for I hope to tarry awhile with you{+}, if the Lord permits.

8 But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost;

9 for a great and effectual door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

10 Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you{+} without fear; for he works the work of the Lord, as I also do:

11 let no man therefore despise him. But set him forward on his journey in peace, that he may come to me: for I expect him with the brothers.

12 But as concerning Apollos the brother, I implored him much to come to you{+} with the brothers: and it was not all [his] will to come now; but he will come when he will have opportunity.

13 Watch{+}, stand fast{+} in the faith, be{+} manly, be{+} strong.

14 Let all that you{+} do be done in love.

15 Now I urge you{+}, brothers (you{+} know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have set themselves in service to the saints),

16 that you{+} also be in subjection to such, and to everyone who helps in the work and labors.

17 And I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your{+} part they supplied.

18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours{+}: acknowledge{+} therefore those who are such.

19 The churches of Asia greet you{+}. Aquila and Prisca greet you{+} much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.

20 All the brothers greet you{+}. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

21 The salutation of me Paul with my own hand.

22 If any man does not love the Lord, let him be accursed. Maranatha.

23 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you{+}.

24 My love be with all of you{+} in Christ Jesus.
