The Scriptures (ISR 1998)
1And concerning the collections for the set-apart ones, you are to do as I gave orders to the assemblies of Galatia:
2On the first day of the week let each one of you set aside, storing up whatever he is prospered, so that there are no collections when I come.
3And when I come, whomever you approve by your letters, I shall send to bear your gift to Yerushalayim.
4And if it is fitting for me to go, they shall go with me.
5And I shall come to you when I pass through Makedonia, for I am passing through Makedonia.
6And possibly I shall stay with you, or even spend the winter, so that you send me forward, wherever I go.
7For I do not wish to see you now on the way, but I expect to stay a while with you, if the Master permits.
8And I shall remain in Ephesos until the Festival of Weeks.
9For a great and effective door has opened to me, and many are opposing.
10And if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without fear, for he does the work of the Master, even as I.
11Therefore let no one despise him. And send him forward in peace, so that he comes to me, for I am waiting for him with the brothers.
12And concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brothers, but he had no desire at all to come at this time; however, he shall come when it is convenient.
13Watch, stand fast in the belief, be men, be strong.
14Let all that you do be done in love.
15And I urge you, brothers, you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the first-fruit of Achaia, and that they have assigned themselves for service to the set-apart ones,
16that you also be subject to such, and to everyone who works and labours with us.
17And I rejoice about the coming of Stephanas, and Fortunatos, and Achaikos, for what was lacking on your part they supplied.
18For they refreshed my spirit and yours, therefore give recognition to such ones.
19The assemblies of Asia greet you. Aqulas and Priscilla greet you heartily in the Master, with the assembly that is in their house.
20All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a set-apart kiss.
21The greeting with my own hand – Sha’ul.
22If anyone does not love the Master יהושע Messiah, let him be a curse. Maranatha!
23The favour of our Master יהושע Messiah be with you.
24My love be with you all in Messiah יהושע. Amĕn.
