The Collection. 1 v Acts 24, 17; Rom 15, 25–32; 2 Cor 8–9; Gal 2, 10 . *Now in regard to the collection for the holy ones, you also should do as I ordered the churches of Galatia. 2On the first day of the week each of you should set aside and save whatever he can afford, so that collections will not be going on when I come. 3And when I arrive, I shall send those whom you have approved with letters of recommendation to take your gracious gift to Jerusalem. 4 *If it seems fitting that I should go also, they will go with me.

Paul's Travel Plans. 5 w Acts 19, 21; Rom 15, 26; 2 Cor 1, 15–16 . *I shall come to you after I pass through Macedonia (for I am going to pass through Macedonia), 6and perhaps I shall stay or even spend the winter with you, so that you may send me on my way wherever I may go. 7 x Acts 18, 21 . For I do not wish to see you now just in passing, but I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits. 8 y 15, 32; Acts 18, 19; 19, 1–10 . *I shall stay in Ephesus until Pentecost, 9 z Acts 14, 27; 2 Cor 2, 12 . because a door has opened for me wide and productive for work, but there are many opponents.

10 a 4, 17; Acts 16, 1; 19, 22; Phil 2, 19–23 . If Timothy comes, see that he is without fear in your company, for he is doing the work of the Lord just as I am. 11Therefore, no one should disdain him. Rather, send him on his way in peace that he may come to me, for I am expecting him with the brothers. 12 b 1, 12; 3, 4–6.22; Acts 18, 24–28 . Now in regard to our brother Apollos, I urged him strongly to go to you with the brothers, but it was not at all his will that he go now. He will go when he has an opportunity.

Exhortation and Greetings. 13Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith, be courageous, be strong. 14Your every act should be done with love.

15 c 1, 16. I urge you, brothers—you know that the household of Stephanas is the firstfruits of Achaia and that they have devoted themselves to the service of the holy ones— 16be subordinate to such people and to everyone who works and toils with them. 17I rejoice in the arrival of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus, because they made up for your absence, 18 d 1 Thes 5, 12–13 . for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. So give recognition to such people.

19 e Acts 18, 2.18.26; Rom 16, 3–5 . *The churches of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Prisca together with the church at their house send you many greetings in the Lord. 20 f Rom 16, 16; 2 Cor 13, 12; 1 Thes 5, 26; 1 Pt 5, 14 . All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

21 g Gal 6, 11; Col 4, 18; 2 Thes 3, 17 . I, Paul, write you this greeting in my own hand. 22 h 12, 3; Rom 9, 3; Gal 1, 8–9; Rv 22, 20 . *If anyone does not love the Lord, let him be accursed. Marana tha. 23 i Rom 16, 20 . The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. 24My love to all of you in Christ Jesus.
