Romans 16 New American Standard Bible

Personal Greetings

16 1  I commend to you our sister Phoebe , who is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea ; 2  that you receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints , and that you help her in whatever e matter she may have need of you; for she herself has also been a helper of many , and of myself as well . 3  Greet Prisca and Aquila , my fellow workers in Christ Jesus , 4  who for my life risked their own necks , to whom not only do I give thanks , but also all the churches of the Gentiles ; 5  also greet the church that is in their house . Greet Epaenetus , my beloved , who is the first convert to Christ from Asia . 6  Greet Mary , who has worked hard for you. 7  Greet Andronicus and Junias , my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners , who are outstanding among the apostles , who also were in Christ before me. 8  Greet Ampliatus , my beloved in the Lord . 9  Greet Urbanus , our fellow worker in Christ , and Stachys my beloved . 10  Greet Apelles , the approved in Christ . Greet those who are of the household of Aristobulus . 11  Greet Herodion , my kinsman . Greet those of the household of Narcissus , who are in the Lord . 12  Greet Tryphaena and Tryphosa , workers in the Lord . Greet Persis the beloved , who has worked hard in the Lord . 13  Greet Rufus , a choice man in the Lord , also his mother and mine . 14  Greet Asyncritus , Phlegon , Hermes , Patrobas , Hermas and the brethren with them. 15  Greet Philologus and Julia , Nereus and his sister , and Olympas , and all the saints who are with them. 16  Greet one another with a holy kiss . All the churches of Christ greet you.

17  Now I urge you, brethren , keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned , and turn away from them. 18  For such men are slaves , not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites ; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting . 19  For the report of your obedience has reached to all ; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil . 20  The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet . The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

21  Timothy my fellow worker greets you, and so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater , my kinsmen . 22  I, Tertius , who write this letter , greet you in the Lord . 23  Gaius , host to me and to the whole church , greets you. Erastus , the city treasurer greets you, and Quartus , the brother . 24  [The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all . Amen .]

Concluding Doxology

25  Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ , according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret for long ages past, 26  but now is manifested , and by the Scriptures of the prophets , according to the commandment of the eternal God , has been made known to all the nations , leading to obedience of faith ; 27  to the only wise God , through Jesus Christ , be the glory forever . Amen .
