For I hope to see you on my journey, (C)and to be helped on my way there by you, if first I may (D)enjoy your company for a while. 25 But now (E)I am going to Jerusalem to [b]minister to the saints. 26 For (F)it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the saints who are in Jerusalem. 27 It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors.
