1 I commend unto you Phoebe our sister, which is a minister of the congregation of Cenchreae, 2 that ye receive her in the Lord as it becometh saints, and that ye assist her, in whatsoever business she needeth of your aid. For she hath succored many, and mine own self also.
3 Greet Prisca and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus, 4 which have for my life laid down their own necks. Unto which not I only give thanks: but also the congregations of the gentiles. 5 Likewise, greet all the congregation that is in their house. Salute my well beloved Epaenetes, which is the firstfruit among them of Achaia. 6 Greet Mary, which bestowed much labour on us. 7 Salute Andronicus, and Junia, my cousins, which were prisoners with me also, which are well taken among the apostles, and were in Christ before me. 8 Greet Amplias my beloved in the Lord. 9 Salute Urbane our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved. 10 Salute Apellas approved in Christ. Salute them which are of Aristobolus' household. 11 Salute Herodion my kinsman. Greet them of the household of Narcissus which are in the Lord. 12 Salute Tryphaena and Tryphosa, which women did labour in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, which laboured much in the Lord. 13 Salute Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Mercurius, and the brethren which are with them. 15 Salute Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints which are with them. 16 Salute one another among yourselves with a holy kiss. The congregations of Christ salute you.
17 I beseech you, brethren: mark them which cause division, and give occasions of evil contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not the Lord Jesus Christ: but their own bellies. And with sweet preachings and flattering words deceive the hearts of the innocents:
19 for your obedience extendeth to all men. I am glad no doubt of you. But yet I would have you wise unto that which is good. And to be innocent as concerning evil. 20 The God of peace tread Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
21 Timothy my work fellow, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kinsmen salute you.
22 I Tercius salute you, which wrote this epistle in the Lord.
23 Gaius mine host and the host of all the congregations, saluteth you. Erastus, the chamberlain of the city, saluteth you. And Quartus, a brother, saluteth you.
24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all Amen.
25 To him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel and preaching of Jesus Christ, in uttering of the mystery which was kept secret since the world began, 26 but now is opened at this time and declared opened by the scriptures of prophecy, at the commandment of the everlasting God, to stir up obedience to the faith published among all nations: 27 To the same God, which alone is wise, be praise through Jesus Christ for ever Amen. {To the Romans. Sent from Corinth by Phoebe, she that was the minister unto the congregation at Cenchreae}
