1 I want to introduce to you our sister Phoebe, who is a helper in the church at Cenchreae. 2 Welcome her as a Christian, as God's people should welcome one another, and give her whatever help she may need from you. For she has herself been a protection to many, including myself.
3 Remember me to Prisca and Aquila, my fellow-workers in the cause of Christ Jesus, 4 who risked their necks to save my life. Not only I but also all the churches among the heathen thank them. Remember me also to the church that meets at their house. 5 Remember me to my dear Epaenetus, who was the first man in Asia to turn to Christ. 6 Remember me to Mary, who has worked so hard for you. 7 Remember me to Andronicus and Junias, my fellow-countrymen, who went to prison with me. They are noted men among the missionaries, and they became Christians before I did. 8 Remember me to Ampliatus, my dear Christian friend. 9 Remember me to Urbanus, our fellow-worker in Christ's cause, and to my dear Stachys. 10 Remember me to that veteran Christian, Apelles. Remember me to those who belong to the household of Aristobulus. 11 Remember me to my fellow-countryman, Herodion. Remember me to the Christians in the household of Narcissus. 12 Remember me to Tryphaena and Tryphosa, those hard workers in the Lord's cause. Remember me to my dear Persis, who has worked so hard for the Lord, 13 Remember me to Rufus, that eminent Christian, and to his mother, who has been a mother to me. 14 Remember me to Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brothers who meet with them. 15 Remember me to Philologus and Julia, to Nereus and his sister, and to Olympas, and all God's people who meet with them. 16 Greet one another with a sacred kiss. All the churches of Christ wish to be remembered to you.
17 I beg you, brothers, to be on the watch for those who introduce divisions and difficulties, in opposition to the instruction that you were given, and to avoid them. 18 Such men are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own base passions, and with their plausible and flattering talk they deceive simple-minded people.
19 Everyone has heard of your obedience, and I am very happy about you, but I want you to be wise about what is good and guileless about what is bad. 20 And God, who is the source of peace, will soon crush Satan under your feet. The blessing of our Lord Jesus be with you.
21 My fellow-worker, Timothy, wishes to be remembered to you, and so do Lucius, Jason, and Sosipater, my fellow-countrymen.
23 My host, Gaius, the host of the whole church, wishes to be remembered to you. Erastus, the city-treasurer, and our brother Quartus wish to be remembered to you.
25 To him who can make you strong by the good news I bring and the preaching about Jesus Christ, through the disclosure of the secret kept back for long ages but now revealed, 26 and at the command of the eternal God made known through the writings of the prophets to all the heathen, to lead them to obedience and faith??27 to the one wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ. Amen.
