Collection for the Saints
1Now concerning #Acts 11:29Gal. 2:10the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: 2#Acts 20:7On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come. 3And when I come, #2 Cor. 3:1|NoBook| 8:18whomever you approve by your letters I will send to bear your gift to Jerusalem. 4#2 Cor. 8:4But if it is fitting that I go also, they will go with me.
Personal Plans
5Now I will come to you #Acts 19:212 Cor. 1:1516when I pass through Macedonia (for I am passing through Macedonia). 6And it may be that I will remain, or even spend the winter with you, that you may #Acts 15:3Rom. 15:241 Cor. 16:11send me on my journey, wherever I go. 7For I do not wish to see you now on the way; but I hope to stay a while with you, #Acts 18:21James 4:15if the Lord permits.
8But I will tarry in Ephesus until #Lev. 23:15–22Pentecost. 9For #Acts 14:272 Cor. 2:12Col. 4:3a great and effective door has opened to me, and #Acts 19:9there are many adversaries.
10And #Acts 19:222 Tim. 1:2if Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for #Phil. 2:201 Thess. 3:2he does the work of the Lord, as I also do. 11#1 Tim. 4:12Titus 2:15Therefore let no one despise him. But send him on his journey #Acts 15:33in peace, that he may come to me; for I am waiting for him with the brethren.
12Now concerning our brother #Acts 18:241 Cor. 1:12Acts 3:5Apollos, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brethren, but he was quite unwilling to come at this time; however, he will come when he has a convenient time.
Final Exhortations
13#Matt. 24:42Watch, #1 Cor. 15:1Gal. 5:1Phil. 1:27Ga 4:11 Thess. 3:82 Thess. 2:15stand fast in the faith, be brave, #(Ps. 31:24Eph. 3:16Eph 6:10Col. 1:11)be strong. 14#(1 Pet. 4:8)Let all that you do be done with love.
15I urge you, brethren—you know #1 Cor. 1:16the household of Stephanas, that it is #Rom. 16:5the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to #2 Cor. 8:4the ministry of the saints— 16#Eph. 5:211 Thess. 5:12Heb. 13:17that you also submit to such, and to everyone who works and #(Heb. 6:10)labors with us.
17I am glad about the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus, #2 Cor. 11:9Phil. 2:30for what was lacking on your part they supplied. 18#Col. 4:8For they refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore #Phil. 2:29acknowledge such men.
Greetings and a Solemn Farewell
19The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you heartily in the Lord, #Rom. 16:5with the church that is in their house. 20All the brethren greet you.
#Rom. 16:16Greet one another with a holy kiss.
21#Rom. 16:22Gal. 6:11Col. 4:182 Thess. 3:17Philem. 19The salutation with my own hand—Paul’s.
22If anyone #Eph. 6:24does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, #Gal. 1:89let him be accursed. #Jude 1415O Lord, come!
23#Rom. 16:20The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
