Personal Greetings and Love

1Now I commend to you Phoebe our sister, being also a servanta of the church in Cenchrea, 2that 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.

3Greet Priscab and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus— 4who have lain down their neck for my life, whom not only I thank, but also all the churches of the Gentiles— 5and the church at their house.

Greet Epenetus, my beloved, who is a firstfruit of Asia for Christ.

6Greet Mary, who toiled much for you.

7Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, and who were in Christ before me.

8Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord.

9Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and my beloved Stachys.

10Greet Apelles, the approved in Christ.

Greet those of the household of Aristobulus.

11Greet Herodion, my kinsman.

Greet those of the household of Narcissus being in the Lord.

12Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, those toiling in the Lord.

Greet Persis, the beloved, who toiled much in the Lord.

16Greet one another with a holy kiss.

All the churches of Christ greet you.

Avoid Divisions

17Now I exhort you, brothers, to consider those causing divisions and obstacles contrary to the teaching that you have learned, and turn away from them. 18For such do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.

19For your obedience has reached to all. Therefore I rejoice over you. But I wish you to be wise to good, and innocent to evil.

20And in a short time the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

Greetings from Paul's Companions

21Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; also Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen.

22I Tertius, the one having written down this letter, greet you in the Lord.

23Gaius, the host of me and of all the church, greets you.

Erastus, the steward of the city, greets you, and Quartus, the brother.c

(Romans 11:33-36; Jude 1:24-25)

25Now 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, 26but 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— 27to the only wise God be the glory to the ages of the ages, which is through Jesus Christ. Amen.
