A. Intimate Charges
10 Now if aTimothy comes, see that he is with you without fear; for he is working the bwork of the Lord, even as I am.
11 Let no one therefore adespise him, but bsend him forward in cpeace that he may come to me; for I am awaiting him with the brothers.
12 And 1concerning our brother aApollos, 2I urged him many times to come to you with the brothers; yet it was 2not at all his desire to come now, but he bwill come when he has opportunity.
13 aWatch, 1bstand firm in the 2cfaith, be 3dfull-grown men, be estrong.
14 Let all your matters be done in 1alove.
15 Now I exhort you, brothers: You know the household of aStephanas, that it is the bfirstfruits of cAchaia, and they have set themselves to minister to the dsaints;
16 You also be asubject to such ones, and to everyone co-working and blaboring.
17 Now I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because these have afilled up the lack caused by your absence;
18 For they 1arefreshed my 2bspirit and yours. cAcknowledge therefore such ones.
