1 Now concerning the collection for the Saints, as I haue giuen order to the Churches of Galatia, euen so doe ye.
2 Upon the first day of the weeke, let euery one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
3 And when I come, whomsoeuer you shall approue by your letters, them wil I send to bring your liberality vnto Ierusalem.
4 And if it be meet that I goe also, they shall goe with me.
5 Now I wil come vnto you, when I shall passe through Macedonia: for I doe passe through Macedonia.
6 And it may bee that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that yee may bring me on my iourny, whithersoeuer I goe.
7 For I will not see you now by the way, but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.
8 But I will tarry at Ephesus vntill Pentecost.
9 For a great doore and effectuall is opened vnto mee, and there are many aduersaries.
10 Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without feare: for hee worketh the worke of the Lord, as I also doe.
11 Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that hee may come vnto me: for I looke for him with the brethren.
12 As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come vnto you with þe brethren, but his wil was not at all to come at this time: but he wil come when hee shall haue conuenient time.
13 Watch yee, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men: be strong.
14 Let all your things be done with charitie.
15 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia, and that they haue addicted themselues to the ministery of the Saints,)
16 That ye submit your selues vnto such, and to euery one that helpeth with vs and laboureth.
17 I am glad of the comming of Stephanas, and Fortunatus, and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part, they haue supplied.
18 For they haue refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge yee them that are such.
19 The Churches of Asia salute you: Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the Church that is in their house.
20 All the brethren greet you: greet ye one another with an holy kisse.
21 The salutation of me Paul, with mine owne hand.
22 If any man loue not the Lord Iesus Christ, let him bee Anathema Maranatha.
23 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you.
24 My loue be with you all in Christ Iesus, Amen. The first Epistle to the Corinthians was written from Philippi by Stephanas, and Fortunatus, and Achaicus, and Timotheus.
