5 Now I will come to you e when I pass through Macedonia (for I am passing through Macedonia). 6 And it may be that I will remain, or even spend the winter with you, that you may f send me on my journey, wherever I go. 7 For I do not wish to see you now on the way; but I hope to stay a while with you, g if the Lord permits. 8 But I will tarry in Ephesus until h Pentecost. 9 For i a great and effective door has opened to me, and j there are many adversaries.
10 And k if Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for l he does the work of the Lord, as I also do. 11 m Therefore let no one despise him. But send him on his journey n in peace, that he may come to me; for I am waiting for him with the brethren.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
