Text Commentary side-by-side

16.1–11 : “How is the offering for Jerusalem to be collected?”

(See 7.1–16 n. ).

1 :

Collection: see Introduction to Rom. Galatia: see Rom. 15.26 n. and Introduction to Gal.

2 :

No collecting: each Christian will have a sum ready.

3–4 :

Compare with the delegates in Acts 20.4 .

5 :

Macedonia: see 2 Cor. 1.8–2.13 n.

8 :

Pentecost: the “fiftieth” day after Passover; it fell in May–June.

10 :

Timothy: a trusted assistant of Paul's ( 4.17; 2 Thess. 1.1; 1 Thess. 1.1; 3.2, 6; Phil. 1.1; 2.19; 2 Cor. 1.1, 19; Rom. 16.21; Col. 1.1 ; Philem. 1).

11 :

Our friends (the others, v. 12 ): Timothy is one of a group of traveling church workers.

16.12 : “When can Apollos return to us?”

This is the final item from the Corinthians' letter (see Introduction). Apollos: see 1.12 n.

16.13–24 : Final directions.

15–17 :

Stephanas ( 1.16 ), with Fortunatus and Achaicus (otherwise unknown), probably brought the Corinthians' letter to Paul (see Introduction).

19 :

Aquila, Prisca: see Rom. 16.3–5 n.

20 :

Kiss: see v. 22 n.; Rom. 16.16 n.

21–24 :

Having finished dictating (see 1.16 n. ), Paul “signs” the letter with a short paragraph (see 2 Thess. 3.17; Gal. 6.11; Col. 4.18 ).

22 :

Outcast: lit. anathema, i.e. cursed. Marana tha is Aram. for Come, O Lord. The kiss of peace (v. 20 ), the anathema, and this invocation (compare Rev. 22.20 ) perhaps echo an early Lord's Supper liturgy.
