1 Now I commend to you Phoebe, our sister, who is a deaconess of the Cenchrean Church;

2 That ye receive her in the Lord, as it becomes saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever matter she may have need of' you; for she has been a helper to many, and to me also.

3 Salute Prisca and Aquila, [my fellow-workers in Christ Jesus,

4 Who for my life laid down their own necks, to whom not I alone give thanks, but also all the Churches of the Gentiles,

5 And the Church in their house. Salute Epenetus, my beloved, who is the first-fruit of Achaia in the Lord

6 Salute Mary, who has labored much with us.

7 Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen and my fellow-captives, who are celebrated among the Apostles, and who were before me in Christ.

8 Salute Amplias, my beloved in the Lord.

9 Salute Urban, our helper in Christ, and Stachys, my beloved.

10 Salute Apelles, approved in Christ. Salute those who are of the family of Aristobulus.

11 Salute Herodion, my kinsman. Salute those of the family of Narcissus, who are in the Lord.

12 Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, who have labored much in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, who has labored much in the Lord.

13 Salute Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine.

14 Salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren who are with them.

15 Salute Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them.

16 Salute one another with an holy kiss. The Churches of Christ salute you.

17 But I beseech you, brethren, to observe those who stir up divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which ye have learnt, and to avoid them:

18 For they, who are such, serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but, their own belly; and by courteous language and flattery deceive the hearts of the simple.

19 Your obedience indeed has been published to all: I am therefore glad on your account; but I wish you to be wise for good,

20 And simple for evil. And the God of peace shall shortly bruise Satan under your feet,. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

21 Salute you do Timothy, my fellow-worker, and Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen.

22 Salute you do I Terrius, who have written this Epistle, in the Lord.

23 Salute you does Gaius, my host and of the whole Church. Salute you does Erastus, the treasurer of the city, and Quartus a brother.

24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

25 Now to him who is able to confirm you according to my gospel, even the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery, which was hid in former ages,

26 But has been now made known, and through the prophetic Scriptures proclaimed, according to the appointment of the eternal God, for the obedience of faith among all nations

27 To the only wise God, through Jesus Christ,, be glory for ever. Amen.
