The Collection for the Saints

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1Now about the collection for the Lord's people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do.1Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do.1Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I directed the churches of Galatia, so do you also.1Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.1Now about the collection for the saints: You should do the same as I instructed the Galatian churches.
2On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.2On the first day of every week, each of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come.2On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.2Upon 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.2On the first day of the week, each of you is to set something aside and save in keeping with how he prospers, so that no collections will need to be made when I come.
3Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem.3And when I arrive, I will send those whom you accredit by letter to carry your gift to Jerusalem.3When I arrive, whomever you may approve, I will send them with letters to carry your gift to Jerusalem;3And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.3When I arrive, I will send with letters those you recommend to carry your gracious gift to Jerusalem.
4If it seems advisable for me to go also, they will accompany me.4If it seems advisable that I should go also, they will accompany me.4and if it is fitting for me to go also, they will go with me.4And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.4If it is suitable for me to go as well, they can travel with me.

Paul's Plans for Travel

(Romans 15:23-33)

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
5After I go through Macedonia, I will come to you--for I will be going through Macedonia.5I will visit you after passing through Macedonia, for I intend to pass through Macedonia,5But I will come to you after I go through Macedonia, for I am going through Macedonia;5Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia.5I will come to you after I pass through Macedonia--for I will be traveling through Macedonia--
6Perhaps I will stay with you for a while, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go.6and perhaps I will stay with you or even spend the winter, so that you may help me on my journey, wherever I go.6and perhaps I will stay with you, or even spend the winter, so that you may send me on my way wherever I may go.6And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go.6and perhaps I will remain with you or even spend the winter, so that you may send me on my way wherever I go.
7For I do not want to see you now and make only a passing visit; I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.7For I do not want to see you now just in passing. I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.7For I do not wish to see you now just in passing; for I hope to remain with you for some time, if the Lord permits.7For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.7I don't want to see you now just in passing, for I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord allows.
8But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost,8But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost,8But I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost;8But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.8But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost,
9because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.9for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.9for a wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.9For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.9because a wide door for effective ministry has opened for me--yet many oppose me.

Timothy Commended

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
10When Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is carrying on the work of the Lord, just as I am.10When Timothy comes, see that you put him at ease among you, for he is doing the work of the Lord, as I am.10Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without cause to be afraid, for he is doing the Lord's work, as I also am.10Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do.10If Timothy comes, see that he has nothing to fear from you, because he is doing the Lord's work, just as I am.
11No one, then, should treat him with contempt. Send him on his way in peace so that he may return to me. I am expecting him along with the brothers.11So let no one despise him. Help him on his way in peace, that he may return to me, for I am expecting him with the brothers.11So let no one despise him. But send him on his way in peace, so that he may come to me; for I expect him with the brethren.11Let 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.11Therefore, no one should look down on him. Send him on his way in peace so he can come to me, for I am expecting him with the brothers.
12Now about our brother Apollos: I strongly urged him to go to you with the brothers. He was quite unwilling to go now, but he will go when he has the opportunity.12Now concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to visit you with the other brothers, but it was not at all his will to come now. He will come when he has opportunity.12But concerning Apollos our brother, I encouraged him greatly to come to you with the brethren; and it was not at all his desire to come now, but he will come when he has opportunity.12As 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.12About our brother Apollos: I strongly urged him to come to you with the brothers, but he was not at all willing to come now.
