1But I commend to you Phoebe, our sister, who is minister of the assembly which is in Cenchrea; 2that ye may receive her in the Lord worthily of saints, and that ye may assist her in whatever matter she has need of you; for she also has been a helper of many, and of myself. 3Salute Prisca and Aquila, my fellow-workmen in Christ Jesus, 4(who for my life staked their own neck; to whom not I only am thankful, but also all the assemblies of the nations,) 5and the assembly at their house. Salute Epaenetus, my beloved, who is the first-fruits of Asia for Christ. 6Salute Maria, who laboured much for you. 7Salute Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and fellow-captives, who are of note among the apostles; who were also in Christ before me. 8Salute Amplias, my beloved in the Lord. 9Salute Urbanus, our fellow-workman in Christ, and Stachys, my beloved. 10Salute Apelles, approved in Christ. Salute those who belong to Aristobulus. 11Salute Herodion, my kinsman. Salute those who belong to Narcissus, who are in the Lord. 12Salute Tryphaena and Tryphosa, who labour in the Lord. Salute Persis, the beloved, who has laboured much in the Lord. 13Salute Rufus, chosen in the Lord; and his mother and mine. 14Salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brethren with them. 15Salute Philologus, and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints with them. 16Salute one another with a holy kiss. All the assemblies of Christ salute you.
17But I beseech you, brethren, to consider those who create divisions and occasions of falling, contrary to the doctrine which ye have learnt, and turn away from them. 18For such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly, and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting. 19For your obedience has reached to all. I rejoice therefore as it regards you; but I wish you to be wise as to that which is good, and simple as to evil. 20But the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
21Timotheus, my fellow-workman, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kinsmen, salute you. 22I Tertius, who have written this epistle, salute you in the Lord. 23Gaius, my host and of the whole assembly, salutes you. Erastus, the steward of the city, salutes you, and the brother Quartus. 24The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
25Now to him that is able to establish you, according to my glad tidings and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, as to which silence has been kept in the times of the ages, 26but which has now been made manifest, and by prophetic scriptures, according to commandment of the eternal God, made known for obedience of faith to all the nations-- 27the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
