1 Corinthians 16

<< 1 Corinthians 16 >>
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the congregations {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} of Galatia, do ye likewise. 2Each first sabbath let each one of you set aside in store, as God has prospered him, that there be no collections when I come. 3And when I come, whomever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem. 4And if it is appropriate that I go also, they shall go with me.

5Now I will come unto you, when I have passed through Macedonia, for I must pass through Macedonia. 6And it may be that I will abide and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey wherever I go. 7For I desire not to see you now in passing, but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permits. 8But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. 9For a great and effectual door is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

10Now if Timothy comes, see that he may stay with you securely, for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do. 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 brothers. 12As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with some of the brothers, but his will was not at all to come at this time, but he will come when he shall have opportunity.

13Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. 14Let all your things be done with charity. 15I beseech you, brethren (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia and that they have dedicated themselves to the ministry of the saints), 16that ye submit yourselves unto such and to each one that helps and labours. 17I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, for they have filled your absence. 18For they have refreshed my spirit and yours; therefore, acknowledge ye those that are such.

19The congregations {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} that is in their house. 20All the brothers greet you. Greet ye one another with a holy kiss. 21The salutation of me, Paul, is with my own hand. 22If any man does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema. Our Lord has come. 23The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24 My charity in Christ Jesus be with you all. Amen.
