16 I wanted to visit you eon my way to Macedonia, and to come back to you from Macedonia and have you send me on my way to Judea.


13 my spirit iwas not at rest because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I took leave of them and went on to Macedonia.


For even qwhen we came into Macedonia, our bodies had no rest, but we were afflicted at every turnrfighting without and fear within.


Encouragement to Give Generously

We want you to know, brothers,1 about the grace of God that has been hgiven among the churches of Macedonia,


for I know your readiness, nof which I boast about you to the people of Macedonia, saying that Achaia has been ready osince last year. And your zeal has stirred up most of them.


Otherwise, if some Macedonians rcome with me and find that you are not ready, we would be humiliatedto say nothing of youfor being so confident.
