1 Corinthians 16
He exhorteth them to relieve the want of the brethren at Jerusalem:
1 Corinthians 16:1 And concerning the collection that [is] for the saints, as I directed to the assemblies of Galatia, so also yedo ye; 1 Corinthians 16:2 on every first [day] of the week, let each one of you lay by him, treasuring up whatever he may have prospered, that when I may come then collections may not be made; 1 Corinthians 16:3 and whenever I may come, whomsoever ye may approve, through letters, these I will send to carry your favour to Jerusalem; 1 Corinthians 16:4 and if it be meet for me also to go, with me they shall go. 1 Corinthians 16:5 And I will come unto you, when I pass through Macedoniafor Macedonia I do pass through 1 Corinthians 16:6 and with you, it may be, I will abide, or even winter, that ye may send me forward whithersoever I go, 1 Corinthians 16:7 for I do not wish to see you now in the passing, but I hope to remain a certain time with you, if the Lord may permit; 1 Corinthians 16:8 and I will remain in Ephesus till the Pentecost, 1 Corinthians 16:9 for a door to me hath been openedgreat and effectualand withstanders [are] many.
1 Corinthians 16:10 And if Timotheus may come, see that he may become without fear with you, for the work of the Lord he doth work, even as I, 1 Corinthians 16:11 no one, then, may despise him; and send ye him forward in peace, that he may come to me, for I expect him with the brethren; 1 Corinthians 16:12 and concerning Apollos our brother, much I did entreat him that he may come unto you with the brethren, and it was not at all [his] will that he may come now, and he will come when he may find convenient.
and after friendly admonitions,
1 Corinthians 16:13 Watch ye, stand in the faith; be men, be strong; 1 Corinthians 16:14 let all your things be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:15 And I entreat you, brethren, ye have known the household of Stephanas, that it is the first-fruit of Achaia, and to the ministration to the saints they did set themselves
shutteth up his epistle with divers salutations.
1 Corinthians 16:16 that ye also be subject to such, and to every one who is working with [us] and labouring; 1 Corinthians 16:17 and I rejoice over the presence of Stephanas, and Fortunatus, and Achaicus, because the lack of you did these fill up; 1 Corinthians 16:18 for they did refresh my spirit and yours; acknowledge ye, therefore, those who [are] such. 1 Corinthians 16:19 Salute you do the assemblies of Asia; salute you much in the Lord do Aquilas and Priscilla, with the assembly in their house; 1 Corinthians 16:20 salute you do all the brethren; salute ye one another in an holy kiss. 1 Corinthians 16:21 The salutation of [me] Paul with my hand; 1 Corinthians 16:22 if any one doth not love the Lord Jesus Christlet him be anathema! The Lord hath come! 1 Corinthians 16:23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ [is] with you; 1 Corinthians 16:24 my love [is] with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
