Romans 16:4

who have for my life laid down—"who did for my life lay down"

their own necks—that is, risked their lives; either at Corinth (Acts 18:6, Acts 18:9-10), or more probably at Ephesus (Acts 19:30-31; and compare I Corinthians 15:32). They must have returned from Ephesus (where we last find them in the history of the Acts) to Rome, whence the edict of Claudius had banished them (Acts 18:2); and doubtless, if not the principal members of that Christian community, they were at least the most endeared to our apostle.

unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles—whose special apostle this dear couple had rescued from imminent danger.

Romans 16:3-5

Salute Priscilla—The true reading here is "Prisca" (as in II Timothy 4:19), a contracted form of Priscilla, as "Silas" of "Silvanus."

and Aquila my helpers—The wife is here named before the husband (as in Acts 18:18, and Romans 16:26, according to the true reading; also in II Timothy 4:19), probably as being the more prominent and helpful to the Church.
