Romans 16:17-20 - Concluding Exhortations

Romans 16:17-20

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.

1 Corinthians 16:13-18

13 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, and be strong. 14 Let all your business be done in love.

15 Brethren, ye know the house of Stephanas, how that they are the first fruits of Achaia, and that they have appointed themselves to minister unto the saints: 16 I beseech you that ye be obedient unto such, and to all that help and labour. 17 I am glad of the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. 18 They have comforted my spirit and yours. Look therefore that ye know them that are such.
