Chapter 16

1CO.16:1 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also:
1CO.16:2 On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.
1CO.16:3 And when I come, whomever you approve by your letters I will send to bear your gift to Jerusalem.
1CO.16:4 But if it is fitting that I go also, they will go with me.
1CO.16:5 Now I will come to you when I pass through Macedonia (for I am passing through Macedonia).
1CO.16:6 And it may be that I will remain, or even spend the winter with you, that you may send me on my journey, wherever I go.
1CO.16:7 For I do not wish to see you now on the way; but I hope to stay a while with you, if the Lord permits.
1CO.16:8 But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost.
1CO.16:9 For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
1CO.16:10 Now if Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do.
1CO.16:11 Therefore let no one despise him. But send him on his journey in peace, that he may come to me; for I am waiting for him with the brethren.
1CO.16:12 Now concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brethren, but he was quite unwilling to come at this time; however, he will come when he has a convenient time.
1CO.16:13 Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.
1CO.16:14 Let all that you do be done with love.
1CO.16:15 I urge you, brethren–you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints–
1CO.16:16 that you also submit to such, and to everyone who works and labors with us.
1CO.16:17 I am glad about the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus, for what was lacking on your part they supplied.
1CO.16:18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore acknowledge such men.
1CO.16:19 The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you heartily in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
1CO.16:20 All the brethren greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
1CO.16:21 The salutation with my own hand–Paul’s.
1CO.16:22 If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. O Lord, come!
1CO.16:23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
1CO.16:24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
