2 Corinthians 9:2; Romans 15:25–26; Acts 24:17

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.

25 At present, however, fI am going to Jerusalem bringing aid to the saints. 26 For gMacedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make some contribution for the poor among the saints at Jerusalem.

17 Now pafter several years qI came to bring alms to rmy nation and to present sofferings.
