16:1 Now concerning the collection for the set apart ones, as I have given order to the assemblies of Galatia, even so do you.
16:2 Upon the Yom Rishon (Motzoei Shabbot) let every one of you lay by him in store, as [Elohim (אלהים)] have prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
16:3 And when I come, whomsoever you shall approve by [your] letters, them will I send to bring your liberality to Yerushalayim.
16:4 And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.
16:5 Now I will come to you, when I shall pass through Makedonía: for I do pass through Makedonía.
16:6 And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that you may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go.
16:7 For I do not wish to see you now on the way; but I hope to stay a while with you, if the Adonay permits.
16:8 But I will remain in Éphesos until Shavuot (Pentekoste).
16:9 For a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
16:10 Now if Timotheos come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he works the work of Adonay, as I also [do].
16:11 Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in shalom, that he may come to me: for I look for him with the achim.
16:12 As touching [our] brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come to you with the achim: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.
16:13 Watch you, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
16:14 Let all your things be done with Love.
16:15 I urge you, achim, - you know the household of Stephanás, that it is the first-fruits of Achaia, and [that] they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the set apart ones-
16:16 That you submit yourselves to such, and to every one that helps with [us], and labours.
16:17 I am glad of the coming of Stephanás and Phortounátos and Achaïkós: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.
16:18 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge you them that are such.
16:19 The assemblies of Asia salute you. Akúlas and Príska salute you much in Adonay, with the assembly that is in their house.
16:20 All the Achim bid you shalom. Bid you one another shalom with an neshikat hakodesh (set apart kiss).
16:21 The salutation of [me] Paulos with mine own hand.
16:22 If any man love not Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע) Mashiach, let him be Alav ki Cherem hu (a curse of the ban of destruction is on him") Marana tha(Adoneinu come).
16:23 The grace of Adoneinu Yehoshua (יהושע) Mashiach [be] with you.
16:24 My love [be] with you all in Mashiach Yehoshua (יהושע). Amein.
