The Collection for Christians in Jerusalem

2 Corinthians 9

1 Now concerning a the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you; 2 for I know your willingness, about which I boast of you to the Macedonians, that Achaia was ready a b year ago; and your zeal has stirred up the majority. 3 c Yet I have sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this respect, that, as I said, you may be ready; 4 lest if some Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we (not to mention you!) should be ashamed of this 1 confident boasting. 5 Therefore I thought it necessary to 2 exhort the brethren to go to you ahead of time, and prepare your generous gift beforehand, which you had previously promised, that it may be ready as a matter of generosity and not as a 3 grudging obligation.
