1 Corinthians 16:1-3

Context
A Collection to Aid Jewish Christians

16:1 With regard to the collection for the saints, please follow the directions that I gave to the churches of Galatia: 1  16:2 On the first day of the week, each of you should set aside some income 2  and save 3  it to the extent that God has blessed you, 4  so that a collection will not have to be made 5  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. 6 

1 tn Grk “as I directed the churches of Galatia, so also you yourselves do.”

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

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

4 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.

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