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.

Knijga O Kristu

1 Korinćanima 16:1-24

Darovi za jeruzalemsku Crkvu

1Glede novca koji prikupljate za kršćane u Jeruzalemu, ravnajte se prema uputama koje sam dao crkvama u Galaciji. 2Svakoga prvog dana u tjednu neka svatko od vas odvoji novca, koliko može, da ne sabirete kad ja dođem. 3Kad dođem, napisat ću pisma preporuke onima koje odaberete da isporuče vaš milodar Jeruzalemu. 4Bude li prikladno da i ja pođem, možemo skupa putovati.

Posljednje Pavlove upute

5Doći ću k vama kad proputujem Makedoniju. Njome, naime, kanim samo proći. 6A kod vas ću se možda i zadržati ili čak zimovati, da me otpremite prema sljedećem odredištu. 7Ne bih htio da vas i ovaj put vidim samo u prolazu. Želim malo ostati kod vas ako mi to Gospodin dopusti. 8Do tada ću ovdje u Efezu ostati do blagdana Pedesetnice 9jer mi se pružila dobra prilika za uspješan rad, ali i protivnika je mnogo.

10Dođe li Timotej, pobrinite se da se radeći među vama ne mora ničega bojati jer, kao i ja, radi na Gospodnjem djelu. 11Nemojte da ga tko prezre. Pošaljite ga natrag k meni u miru jer ga iščekujem s ostalom braćom.

12A što se tiče brata Apolona, silno sam ga nagovarao da vas s drugom braćom posjeti, ali nikako mu sada nije bilo po volji ići. No posjetit će vas kad mu se pruži prigoda.

13Bdijte! Budite postojani u vjeri! Budite hrabri i jaki! 14Što god činili, činite u ljubavi.

15Znate Stefanine ukućane i znate da su oni prvi u Ahaji postali kršćanima te da su se posvetili posluživanju drugih kršćana.16:15 U grčkome: posluživanju svetih. Zaklinjem vas, braćo i sestre, 16da ih poštujete i budete im poslušni—kao i svima koji s njima surađuju i trude se. 17Veseli me Stefanina, Fortunatova i Ahajikova posjeta. Nadomjestili su mi vas koji niste ovdje. 18I mene su, kao i vas, umirili.16:18 U grčkome: umirili su moj i vaš duh. Cijenite stoga takve ljude.

Pavlovi posljednji pozdravi

19Pozdravljaju vas azijske crkve. Mnogo vas u Gospodinu pozdravljaju Akvila i Priska te Crkva koja se sastaje u njihovu domu. 20Pozdravljaju vas svi vjernici.16:20 U grčkome: sva braća. Pozdravite jedni druge svetim cjelovom.

21Pozdrav ću napisati vlastitom, Pavlovom rukom:

22Ako tko ne ljubi Gospodina, neka je proklet! Marana tha!16:22 U aramejskome: Dođi, Gospodine naš!

23Neka milost Gospodina Isusa bude s vama.

24Sve vas volim u Isusu Kristu.16:24 U nekim rukopisima na kraju stoji još: Amen.
