Romanos 16

1 I COMMEND to you our sister Phoebe, a servant of the church in Cenchreae,

2 that you may receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of the holy, and help her in any matter in which she may need you. For she has been a provider for many, myself included.

3 Give my greetings to Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus,

4 who for my life risked their own necks, to whom not I alone give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.

5 Give my greetings also to the church in their house. Give my greetings to Epaenetus my beloved, who is the first-fruit of Asia for Christ.

6 Give my greetings to Mary, who has worked hard for you.

7 Give my greetings to Andronicus and Junias, men of my race and my companions in prison, who are eminent among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.

8 Give my greetings to Ampliatus my beloved in the Lord.

9 Give my greetings to Urbanus our fellow worker in Christ, and to Stachys my beloved.

10 Give my greetings to Apelles, that tested man in Christ. Give my greetings to the household of Aristobulus.

11 Give my greetings to Herodion, who is of my race. Give my greetings to those of the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord.

12 Give my greetings to Tryphaena and Tryphosa, those workers in the Lord. Give my greetings to Persis the beloved, who has worked hard in the Lord.

13 Give my greetings to Rufus the chosen in the Lord, and to his mother and mine.

14 Give my greetings to Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Petrobas, Hermas, and the brethren with them.

15 Give my greetings to Philologus, and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the holy with them.

16 Give my greetings to one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ send their greetings to you.

17 I beg you, brethren, to keep your eye on those who are making divisions and occasions for sin contrary to the teaching which you have learned, and to shun them.

18 For such persons are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own stomachs, and by their smooth and pleasing talk they mislead the hearts of the innocent.

19 For your obedience has come to the knowledge of all men. Therefore I rejoice over you, but I wish you to be wise regarding what is good, and simple in regard to what is evil.

20 The God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you!

21 Timothy, my fellow worker, sends his greeting, and so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, who are of my race.

22 I, Tertius, who penned this letter, greet you in the Lord.

23 Gaius, my host and the host of the whole church, sends his greetings. Erastus the city treasurer sends his greetings, and so does Quartus the brother.


25 To him who is able to make you strong according to the good news which I bear, and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, and according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret through ages,

26 but now made manifest through the prophetic Scriptures by the command of the eternal God, to promote obedience to the faith made known to all the Gentiles \'97

27 to God, the only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for the ages of the ages!
