Romans 16

Personal Greetings
1  I commend unto you Phoebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cen’chre-ae:
2  that ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succorer of many, and of myself also.
3  ¶ Greet Priscilla and Aquila, Acts 18.2 my helpers in Christ Jesus:
4  who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.
5  Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my well-beloved Epe’netus, who is the firstfruits of Achai’a unto Christ.
6  Greet Mary, who bestowed much labor on us.
7  Salute Andron’icus and Ju’ni-a, my kinsmen, and my fellow prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.
8  Greet Am’pli-as, my beloved in the Lord.
9  Salute Ur’bane, our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved.
10  Salute Apel’les approved in Christ. Salute them which are of Aristob’ulus’ household.
11  Salute Hero’di-on my kinsman. Greet them that be of the household of Narcissus, which are in the Lord.
12  Salute Tryphae’na and Trypho’sa, who labor in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, which labored much in the Lord.
13  Salute Rufus Mk. 15.21 chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine.
14  Salute Asyn’critus, Phlegon, Hermas, Pat’robas, Hermes, and the brethren which are with them.
15  Salute Philol’ogus, and Julia, Ne’reus, and his sister, and Olym’pas, and all the saints which are with them.
16  Salute one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
17  ¶ Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18  For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
19  For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
20  And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
21  ¶ Timothy Acts 16.1 my workfellow, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosip’ater, my kinsmen, salute you.
22  ¶ I Tertius, who wrote this epistle, salute you in the Lord.
23  ¶ Gai’us Acts 19.29 · 1 Cor. 1.14 mine host, and of the whole church, saluteth you. Eras’tus 2 Tim. 4.20 the chamberlain of the city saluteth you, and Quartus a brother.
24  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Concluding Doxology
25  ¶ Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
26  but now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
27  to God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
