1 Corinthians 16
He exhorteth them to relieve the want of the brethren at Jerusalem:
1 Corinthians 16:1 Now, concerning the collection which is for the saints, just as I directed the assemblies of Galatia, so, also do, ye: 1 Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first of the week, let, each one of you, put, by itself, in store, as he may be prospering,lest, as soon as I come, then, collections, should be in progress. 1 Corinthians 16:3 And, as soon as I arrive, whomsoever ye shall approve by letters, these, will I send, to bear away your favour unto Jerusalem: 1 Corinthians 16:4 And, if it be meet that, I also, be journeying, with me, shall they journey. 1 Corinthians 16:5 Now I will come unto you, as soon as I have passed through Macedonia,for I do pass through Macedonia, 1 Corinthians 16:6 And, with you, I may perhaps sojourn, or winter, that, ye, may set me forward, whithersoever I may be journeying. 1 Corinthians 16:7 For I do not wish to see you, just now, by the way; for I hope to remain, some time, with you,if, the Lord, permit. 1 Corinthians 16:8 But I remain in Ephesus, until the Pentecost, 1 Corinthians 16:9 For, a door, unto me, hath opened, great and effectual, and, opposers, are many.
1 Corinthians 16:10 But, if Timothy should come, see that, without fear, he be with you, for, in the work of the Lord, doth he labour, even as, I: 1 Corinthians 16:11 Let no one then despise him; and set ye him forward in peace, that he may come unto me, for I expect him with the brethren. 1 Corinthians 16:12 But, concerning Apollos the brother, much, did I beseech him, that he would come unto you, with the brethren, but there was, by no means, any will, that he should come, now;he will come, however, as soon as he hath good opportunity.
and after friendly admonitions,
1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on the watch, stand firm in the faith, be menbe strong; 1 Corinthians 16:14 Let, all your affairs, in love, be carried on. 1 Corinthians 16:15 Now I beseech you, brethren,ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is a firstfruit of Achaia, and, for the purpose of ministering, they devoted themselves, unto the saints
shutteth up his epistle with divers salutations.
1 Corinthians 16:16 That, ye also, be submitting yourselves unto such as these,and unto everyone helping in the work and toiling. 1 Corinthians 16:17 I Rejoice, moreover, in the presence of Stephanas, and Fortunatus, and Achaicus: because, your own shortcoming, these, have filled up: 1 Corinthians 16:18 They have given rest, in fact, unto my spirit, and yours: hold in acknowledgment, therefore, such as these. 1 Corinthians 16:19 The assemblies of Asia salute you: Aquila and Priscilla, with the assembly meeting at their house, salute you much in the Lord: 1 Corinthians 16:20 All the brethren salute you:Salute ye one another with a holy kiss. 1 Corinthians 16:21 The salutation of Paulwith my own hand. 1 Corinthians 16:22 If anyone doth not dearly love the Lord, let him be anathema [that is, "accursed"]: Maran atha [that is, "The Lord, cometh"]. 1 Corinthians 16:23 The favour of the Lord Jesus, be with you. 1 Corinthians 16:24 My love, be with you all, in Christ Jesus.
