Now, let me introduce to you our dear and beloved sister in the faith, Phoebe, a shining minister of the church in Cenchrea. I am sending her with this letter and ask that you shower her with your hospitality when she arrives. Embrace her with honor, as is fitting for one who belongs to the Lord and is set apart for him. So provide her whatever she may need, for she’s been a great leader and champion for many—I know, for she’s been that for even me!
Give my love to Prisca and Aquila, my partners in ministry serving the Anointed One, Jesus, for they’ve risked their own lives to save mine. I’m so thankful for them, and not just I, but all the congregations among the non-Jewish people respect them for their ministry. Also give my loving greetings to all the believers in their house church.
And greet Epenetus, who was the first convert to Christ in the Roman province of Asia, for I love him dearly.
And give my greetings to Miriam, who has toiled and labored extremely hard to benefit you.
Make sure that my relatives Andronicus and Junia are honored, for they’re my fellow captives who bear the distinctive mark of being outstanding and well-known apostles, and who were joined into the Anointed One before me.
Give my regards to Ampliatus, whom I love, for he is joined into the Lord.
And give my loving greetings to Urbanus, our partner in ministry serving the Anointed One, and also to Stachus, whom I love.
Don’t forget to greet Apelles for me, for he’s been tested and found to be approved by the Anointed One.
And extend warm greetings to all those of Aristobolos’s house church.
Give my love to my relative Herodion, and also to all those of the house church of Narcissus, for they too are joined into the Lord.
Please greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, for they are women who have diligently served the Lord.
To Persis, who is much loved and faithful in her ministry for the Lord, I send my greetings.
And Rufus, for he is especially chosen by the Lord. And I greet his mother, who was like a mother to me.
I cannot forget to mention my esteemed friends Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and all the brothers and sisters who meet with them.
Give my regards to Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and also Olympas and all the holy believers who meet with them.
Greet each other with a holy kiss of God’s love. All the believers in all the congregations of the Messiah send their greetings to all of you.
