“As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.”
King James Version (KJV)
16:12 I besought him much - To come to you. With the brethren - Who were then going to Corinth. Yet he was by no means willing to come now - Perhaps lest his coming should increase the divisions among them.
1Co 16:12 As touching [our] brother Apollos. Apollos was then at Ephesus when Paul wrote. I greatly desired him to come to you with the brethren. Possibly with Timothy and Erastus. See PNT "1Co 16:10". For some reason Apollos was averse to visiting Corinth at that time.
