Final Instructions

12 Now concerning (A)our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to visit you with the other brothers, but it was not at all his will[a] to come now. He will come when he has opportunity.

13 (B)Be watchful, (C)stand firm in the faith, (D)act like men, (E)be strong. 14 (F)Let all that you do be done in love.

15 Now I urge you, brothers[b]—you know that (G)the household[c] of Stephanas were (H)the first converts in Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves (I)to the service of the saints— 16 (J)be subject to such as these, and to every fellow worker and laborer. 17 I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have made up for (K)your absence, 18 for they (L)refreshed my spirit as well as yours. (M)Give recognition to such people.
