1 Corinthians 16

Now concerning the collection for the holy ones, as I have given order to the assemblies (ekklesias) of Galatia, even so do you.

2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God (Elohim) hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

3 And when I come, whomsoever you shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem (Yerushalayim).

4 And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.

5 Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia; for I do pass through Macedonia.

6 And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that you may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go.

7 For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if יהוה (YHWH) permit.

8 But I will tarry at Ephesus until B21Pentecost (Feast of Weeks – Chag Shavuot).

9 For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

10 Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear; for he worketh the work of יהוה (YHWH) as I also do.

11 Let no man therefore despise him; but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come unto me; for I look for him with the brethren.

12 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.

13 Watch you, stand fast in the faith, act you like men, be strong.

14 Let all your things be done with love (agape).

15 I beseech you, brethren, (you know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the holy ones,)

16 That you submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.

17 I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus; for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.

18 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours; therefore acknowledge you them that are such.

19 The assemblies (ekklesias) of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in our Lord (Adonai), with the assembly that is in their house.

20 All the brethren greet you. Greet you one another with a holy kiss.

21 The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand.


22 If any man loves not the Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach, let him be accursed (Anathema). Our Lord, come! (Marana ta!)

23 The grace of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach be with you.

24 My love (agape) be with you all in the Messiah (haMashiach) YHWH. So be it (Amen).
