The Collection for the Saints
(2 Corinthians 9:1–15)

1Now concerning the collections which are made for the saints: just as I have arranged for the churches of Galatia, so should it also be done with you. 2On the first day of the week, the Sabbath, let each one of you take from himself, setting aside what will be well-pleasing to him, so that when I arrive, the collections will not have to be made then. 3And when I am present, whomever you shall approve through letters, these I shall send to bear your gifts to Jerusalem. 4And if it is fitting for me to go too, they shall go with me.

Paul’s Travel Plans
(Romans 15:23–33)

5Now I will visit you after I have passed through Macedonia. For I will pass through Macedonia. 6And perhaps I will stay with you, and even spend the winter, so that you may lead me on my way, whenever I depart. 7For I am not willing to see you now only in passing, since I hope that I may remain with you for some length of time, if the Lord permits. 8But I must remain at Ephesus, even until Pentecost. 9For a door, great and unavoidable, has opened to me, as well as many adversaries.

Timothy and Apollos
(Philippians 2:19–30)

10Now if Timothy arrives, see to it that he may be among you without fear. For he is doing the work of the Lord, just as I also do. 11Therefore, let no one despise him. Instead, lead him on his way in peace, so that he may come to me. For I am awaiting him with the brothers.

12But concerning our brother, Apollo, I am letting you know that I pleaded with him greatly to go to you with the brothers, and clearly it was not his will to go at this time. But he will arrive when there is a space of time for him.

Concluding Exhortations

13Be vigilant. Stand with faith. Act manfully and be strengthened. 14Let all that is yours be immersed in charity.

15And I beg you, brothers: You know the house of Stephanus, and of Fortunatus, and of Achaicus, that they are the first-fruits of Achaia, and that they have dedicated themselves to the ministry of the saints. 16So you should be subject also to persons such as this, as well as to all who are cooperating and working with them. 17Now I rejoice in the presence of Stephanus and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because what was lacking in you, they have supplied. 18For they have refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore, recognize persons such as this.

Signature and Final Greetings
(Colossians 4:15–18; 2 Thessalonians 3:16–18)

19The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you greatly in the Lord, with the church of their household, where I also am a guest. 20All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.

21This is a greeting from my own hand, Paul. 22If anyone does not love our Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema! Maran Atha. 23May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. 24My charity is with all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.
