1 And concerning the collections for the qodeshim, you are to do as I gave orders to the assemblies of Galatia:
2 Concerning one of the shabbathoth, let each of you put aside, storing any bireḵoth, so that there are no collections when I come.
3 And when I come, whomever you approve by your letters, I shall send to bear your gift to Yerushalayim.
4 And if it is fitting for me to go, they shall go with me.
5 And I shall come to you when I pass through Makedonia, for I am passing through Makedonia.
6 And possibly I shall stay with you, or even spend the winter, so that you send me forward, wherever I go.
7 For I do not want to see you now on the way, but I expect to stay a while with you, if the Aḏon permits.
8 And I shall remain in Ephesos until the Festival of Shaḇuoth.
9 For a great and effective door has opened to me, and many are opposing.
10 And if Timotheos comes, see that he is with you without fear, for he does the work of the Aḏon, even as I.
11 Therefore let no one despise him. And send him forward in peace, so that he comes to me, for I am waiting for him with the brothers.
12 And concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brothers, but he had no desire at all to come at this time; however, he shall come when it is convenient.
13 Watch, stand fast in the belief, be men, be strong.
14 Let all that you do be done in love.
15 And I urge you, brothers, you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the first-fruit of Aḵaia, and that they have assigned themselves for service to the qodeshim,
16 that you also be subject to such, and to everyone who works and labours with us.
17 And I rejoice about the coming of Stephanas, and Phortunatos, and Aḵaikos, for what was lacking on your part they supplied.
18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours, therefore give recognition to such ones.
19 The assemblies of Asia greet you Aqulas and Priskilla greet you heartily in the Aḏon, with the assembly that is in their house.
20 All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a qodesh kiss.
21 The greeting with my own hand – Sha’ul.
22 If anyone does not love the Aḏon 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 ha’Mashiaḥ, let him be a curse. Maranatha!
23 The favour of our Aḏon 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 ha’Mashiaḥ be with you.
24 My love be with you all in Mashiaḥ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏. Amĕn.
