Personal Greetings
1I commend unto you Phoebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cen´chre-ae: 2that ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succorer of many, and of myself also.
3 # Acts 18.2 Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my helpers in Christ Jesus: 4who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. 5Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my well-beloved Epe´netus, who is the firstfruits of Achai´a unto Christ. 6Greet Mary, who bestowed much labor on us. 7Salute Andron´icus and Ju´ni-a, my kinsmen, and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. 8Greet Am´pli-as, my beloved in the Lord. 9Salute Ur´bane, our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved. 10Salute Apel´les approved in Christ. Salute them which are of Aristob´ulus' household. 11Salute Hero´di-on my kinsman. Greet them that be of the household of Narcissus, which are in the Lord. 12Salute Tryphae´na and Trypho´sa, who labor in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, which labored much in the Lord. 13#Mark 15.21 Salute Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14Salute Asyn´critus, Phlegon, Hermas, Pat´robas, Hermes, and the brethren which are with them. 15Salute Philol´ogus, and Julia, Ne´reus, and his sister, and Olym´pas, and all the saints which are with them. 16Salute one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
17Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. 19For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. 20And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Concluding Doxology
25Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26but now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: 27to God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
