The Evangel - Romans
16:1 Now I am commending to you Phoebe, our sister, being a servant also of the ecclesia in Cenchrea, 2 that you should be receiving her in the Lord worthily of the saints, and may stand by her in whatever matter she may be needing you, for she became a patroness of many, as well as of myself.
3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus 4 (who, for the sake of my soul, jeopardize their own necks, whom not only I am thanking, but all the ecclesias of the nations also) 5 and the ecclesia at their house.
Greet Epanetus, my beloved, who is the firstfruit of the province of Asia for Christ. 6 Greet Mary, who toils much for you. 7 Greet Andronicus and Junias, my relatives and my fellow captives who are notable among the apostles, who also came to be in Christ before me. 8 Greet Ampliatos, my beloved in the Lord. 9 Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and Stachys, my beloved. 10 Greet Apelles, attested in Christ. Greet those who are of Aristobulus. 11 Greet Herodion, my relative. Greet those of Narcissus who are in the Lord. 12 Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, who are toiling in the Lord. Greet Persis, the beloved, who toils much in the Lord. 13 Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brethren with them. 15 Greet Philologos and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas and all the saints with them. 16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. Greeting you are all the ecclesias of Christ.
17 Now I am entreating you, brethren, to be noting those who are making dissensions and snares beside the teaching which you learned, and avoid them, 18 for such for our Lord Christ are not slaving, but for their own bowels, and through compliments and adulation are deluding the hearts of the innocent. 19 For your obedience reached out to all. Over you, then, am I rejoicing. Now I am wanting you to be wise, indeed, for good, yet artless for evil. 20 Now the God of peace will be crushing Satan under your feet swiftly. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you!
21 Greeting you is Timothy, my fellow worker, and Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my relatives.
22 I, Tertius, the writer of the epistle, am greeting you in the Lord. 23 Greeting you is Gaius, my host, and of the whole ecclesia. 24 Greeting you is Erastus, the administrator of the city, and Quartus, the brother.
25 Now to Him Who is able to establish you in accord with my evangel, and the heralding of Christ Jesus in accord with the revelation of a secret hushed in times eonian, 26 yet manifested now and through prophetic scriptures, according to the injunction of the eonian God being made known to all nations for faith-obedience — 27 to the only, and wise God, through Christ Jesus, be glory for the eons of the eons. Amen!
