1 I recommend to you Phebe, our sister, who is a deaconess of the congregation at Cenchrea,
2 that you may receive her in the Lord, as becomes saints, and assist her, in whatever business she may have need of you: for, indeed, she has been a helper of many, and especially of me.
3 Salute Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow-laborers in Christ Jesus.
4 These persons, for my life, laid down their own neck; to whom not only I give thanks, but even all the congregations of the Gentiles.
5 Likewise, salute the congregation which is in their house. Salute Epenetus, my beloved, who is the first fruit of Asia to Christ.
6 Salute Mary, who labored much for us.
7 Salute Andronicus, and Junias, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the Apostles, and who were in Christ before me.
8 Salute Amplias, my beloved in the Lord.
9 Salute Urbanas, our fellow-laborer in Christ, and Stachys, my beloved.
10 Salute Appelles, the approved in Christ. Salute those who are of the family of Aristobulus.
11 Salute Herodion, my kinsman. Salute those of the family of Narcissus, who are in the Lord.
12 Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, who labor in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, who labored much in the Lord.
13 Salute Rufus, the chosen in the Lord, and her who is the mother both of him and of me.
14 Salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren with them.
15 Salute Philologus, and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them.
16 Salute one another with a holy kiss. The congregations of Christ salute you.
17 Now, I beseech you, brethren, mark them who make separations and occasions of falling, contrary to the doctrine which you have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they who are such, do not serve out Lord Jesus, but their own belly; and by flattery and fair speeches, deceive the hearts of the simple.
19 Now your obedience is reported to all men. I therefore rejoice on your account; nevertheless, I wish you, indeed, to be wise with respect to good; and simple with respect to evil.
20 May the God of peace bruise Satan under your feet soon! The favor of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
21 Timothy, my fellow-laborer, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kinsmen, salute you.
22 I, Tertius, who wrote this letter, salute you in the Lord.
23 Gaius, my host, and of the whole congregation, salutes you. Erastus, the chamberlain of the city, salutes you, and Quartus, your brother.
24 The favor of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all! Amen.
25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel, and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the secret, concealed in the times of the ages,
26 (but is now made manifest by the prophetic writings, and by the commandment of the eternal God is made known to all the Gentiles, in order to the obedience of faith:)
27 to the wise God alone, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever. Amen.
