1 Corinthians 16:2-4

Context
16:2 On the first day of the week, each of you should set aside some income 1  and save 2  it to the extent that God has blessed you, 3  so that a collection will not have to be made 4  when I come. 16:3 Then, when I arrive, I will send those whom you approve with letters of explanation to carry your gift to Jerusalem. 5  16:4 And if it seems advisable that I should go also, they will go with me.

1 tn Grk “set aside, storing whatever he has been blessed with.”

2 tn Grk “set aside, storing.” The participle θησαυρίζων (qhsaurizwn) indicates the purpose or result of setting aside the extra income.

3 tn “To the extent that God has blessed you” translates an awkward expression, “whatever has been prospered [to you].” This verb has been translated as an active with “God” as subject, taking it as a divine passive.

4 tn Grk “so that collections will not be taking place.”
