King James Version

1 Corinthians 16:1-24

1Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. 3And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem. 4And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me. 5Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia. 6And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go. 7For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. 8But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. 9For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. 10Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do. 11Let 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. 12As 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. 13Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 14Let all your things be done with charity. 15I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) 16That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth. 17I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. 18For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.

19The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. 20All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss. 21The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. 22If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. 23The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.

哥林多前書 16:1-24

捐助聖徒

1至於捐款幫助聖徒這件事,你們可以照我吩咐加拉太各教會的方法辦理。 2每逢週日,各人應按照自己的收入抽出一部分留起來,免得我到的時候才現湊。 3我到了以後,會差遣你們委託的人帶著推薦信把你們的捐款送到耶路撒冷4如果我也需要去的話,他們可以跟我一起去。

保羅的計劃

5我正打算從馬其頓經過,過了馬其頓,我就去探望你們。 6我也許會和你們住一段時期,甚至在你們那裡過冬。之後,我無論去什麼地方,你們都可以給我送行。 7我不想只是現在順道探望你們,主若許可,我盼望能夠和你們同住一段時期。 8我會在以弗所停留到五旬節, 9因為大門為我敞開了,工作很有成效,不過反對我的人也很多。

10提摩太到了以後,你們要好好接待他,讓他在你們那裡安心,因為他和我一樣,都是在為主做工。 11所以誰也不許輕視他。你們要幫助他平安地回到我這裡,我正在等候他和弟兄們同來。 12至於亞波羅弟兄,我雖然再三勸他和弟兄們去你們那裡,但他目前還不願啟行。不過他有機會就會去。

勸勉與問候

13你們要警醒,在信仰上堅定不移,做勇敢剛強的人。 14無論做什麼事,都要有愛心。

15弟兄姊妹,你們都知道司提法納一家在亞該亞是最早信主的16·15 最早信主的」希臘文是「最早的果子」。,也知道他們怎樣盡心竭力地服侍聖徒。 16你們要順服這樣的人,也要順服所有同心努力服侍的人。 17我很高興司提法納福徒拿都亞該古來我這裡,因為你們幫不到我的地方,他們都補足了。 18他們使我和你們心裡都感到十分欣慰,你們要敬重這樣的人。

19亞細亞的各教會問候你們。亞居拉百基拉夫婦和常在他們家裡聚會的信徒,奉主的名衷心地向你們問安。 20全體弟兄姊妹都問候你們。你們要以聖潔的吻彼此問候。

21保羅親筆問候你們。

22如果有人不愛主,這人可咒可詛!主啊,我願你來!

23願主耶穌基督的恩典與你們同在! 24我在基督耶穌裡愛你們所有的人。阿們!
