I, Peter, with the help of Silas, whom I consider a trustworthy, faith-filled brother, have written you this short letter so that I might encourage you and personally testify that this is the true, dependable grace of God. Stand fast in this grace.
She who is in Babylon, who is co-elect with you, sends her greetings, along with Mark, my son.
Greet one another with a kiss of peace.
Peace to all who are in life union with Christ. Amen.
