BLB(i) 1 Now I commend to you Phoebe our sister, being also a servant of the church in Cenchrea, 2 that you might receive her in the Lord worthily of the saints, and you might assist her in whatever matter she may need of you. For she also has been a patroness of many, and of me myself. 3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus— 4 who have lain down their neck for my life, whom not only I thank, but also all the churches of the Gentiles— 5 and the church at their house. Greet Epenetus, my beloved, who is a firstfruit of Asia for Christ. 6 Greet Mary, who toiled much for you. 7 Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, and who were in Christ before me. 8 Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord. 9 Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and my beloved Stachys. 10 Greet Apelles, the approved in Christ. Greet those of the household of Aristobulus. 11 Greet Herodion, my kinsman. Greet those of the household of Narcissus being in the Lord. 12 Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, those toiling in the Lord. Greet Persis, the beloved, who toiled much in the Lord. 13 Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brothers with them. 15 Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas and all the saints with them. 16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you. 17 Now I exhort you, brothers, to consider those causing divisions and obstacles contrary to the teaching that you have learned, and turn away from them. 18 For such do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. 19 For your obedience has reached to all. Therefore I rejoice over you. But I wish you to be wise to good, and innocent to evil. 20 And in a short time the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 21 Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; also Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen. 22 I Tertius, the one having written down this letter, greet you in the Lord. 23 Gaius, the host of me and of all the church, greets you. Erastus, the steward of the city, greets you, and Quartus, the brother. 24 25 Now to Him being able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery having been kept secret in times of the ages, 26 but now having been made manifest also through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the commandment of the Eternal God, having been made known to all the Gentiles unto the obedience of faith— 27 to the only wise God be the glory to the ages of the ages, which is through Jesus Christ. Amen.
