16:1   Now concerning the collection for the saints, just as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also do.

16:2   On the first day of the week each one of you should lay aside in store to himself whatever he may have been prospered, that no collections be made when I come.

16:3   And when I arrive, whomever you approve, I will send them with letters to carry your gift to Jerusalem;

16:4   And if it is fitting for me also to go, they will go with me.

16:5   Now I will come to you when I pass through Macedonia, for I will pass through Macedonia.

16:6   And perhaps I will stay with you, or even spend the winter, that you may send me forward wherever I may go.

16:7   For I do not wish to see you now just in passing, for I am hoping to remain with you for some time, if the Lord permits.

16:8   But I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost,

16:9   For a door is opened to me, great and efficacious, and there are many opposers.

16:10  Now if Timothy comes, see that he is with you without fear; for he is working the work of the Lord, even as I am.

16:11  Let no one therefore despise him, but send him forward in peace that he may come to me; for I am awaiting him with the brothers.

16:12  And concerning our brother Apollos, I urged him many times to come to you with the brothers; yet it was not at all his desire to come now, but he will come when he has opportunity.

16:13  Watch, stand firm in the faith, be full-grown men, be strong.

16:14  Let all your matters be done in love.

16:15  Now I exhort you, brothers: You know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and they have set themselves to minister to the saints;

16:16  You also be subject to such ones, and to everyone co-working and laboring.

16:17  Now I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because these have filled up the lack caused by your absence;

16:18  For they refreshed my spirit and yours. Acknowledge therefore such ones.

16:19  The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Prisca greet you much in the Lord, with the church, which is in their house.

16:20  All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

16:21  The greeting in my own hand  Paul.

16:22  If anyone does not love the Lord, let him be accursed! The Lord comes!

16:23  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.

16:24  My love in Christ Jesus be with you all.
