1 Corinthians 16:12-24
 As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.
 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
 Let all your things be done with charity.
 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)
 That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.
 I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.
 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.
 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
 All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.
 The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand.
 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.
 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.
