1 Corinthians 16:2

I Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first [day] of the week. This shows that the first day of the week was set apart and regarded by the church. The church assembled to break bread on that day (Acts 20:7). Let every one of you lay by him in store. The usual view is that every one was directed to set aside something on the Lord's day and keep it until Paul came. This view is sanctioned by the translations and most of the commentators. Macknight renders: "On the first day of the week, let each one of you lay somewhat by itself, put it into the treasury". I believe Macknight is right; for (1) there were to be no collections when Paul came. That implies that the money was to be placed in the treasury. Otherwise, it would have to be collected. (2) "Thesaurizoon", rendered in the Common Version "in store", is a present participle, meaning literally, "putting into the thesaurus", or "treasury". (3) All church history testifies that the early church took up weekly collections on the first day of the week. See Pliny's Letter to the Emperor Trajan. (4) We know, from Acts, and from all early church history, that the church met on the first day of the week. It only remains to add that "par heauto", rendered by the translators "by him", is rendered with equal correctness, "by itself". Its form is that of the neuter reflexive pronoun. As [God] hath prospered him. Each week every one is to give according to his ability.
