5 Now I will come to you ewhen 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 fsend 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, gif the Lord permits.
8 But I will tarry in Ephesus until hPentecost. 9 For ia great and effective door has opened to me, and jthere are many adversaries.
10 And kif Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for lhe does the work of the Lord, as I also do. 11 mTherefore let no one despise him. But send him on his journey nin peace, that he may come to me; for I am waiting for him with the brethren.
12 Now concerning our brother oApollos, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brethren, but he was quite unwilling to come at this time; however, he will come when he has a convenient time.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
