1 CORINTHIANS - Chapter 16

1 - Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
2 - Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
3 - And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
4 - And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.
5 - Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia.
6 - And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever 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 unto me, and there are many adversaries.
10 - Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh 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 unto me: for I look for him with the brethren.
12 - As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.
13 - Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
14 - Let all your things be done with charity.
15 - I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)
16 - That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.
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's: therefore acknowledge ye 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 brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.
21 - The salutation of me Paul with mine 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.
