16:1   Now I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant in the church at Cenchreae.

16:2   Welcome her in the Lord as is appropriate for saints, and provide her with anything she may need from you, for she has assisted many people, including me.

16:3   Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus,

16:4   who risked their necks for my life. I am thankful to them, and so are all the churches among the gentiles.

16:5   Greet also the church in their house. Greet my dear friend Epaenetus, who was the first convert to Christ in Asia.

16:6   Greet Mary, who has worked very hard for you.

16:7   Greet Andronicus and Junias, my fellow Jews who are in prison with me and are prominent among the apostles. They were in Christ before I was.

16:8   Greet Ampliatus, my dear friend in the Lord.

16:9   Greet Urbanus, our fellow in Christ, and my dear friend Stachys.

16:10   Greet Apelles, who has been approved by Christ. Greet those who belong to the family of Aristobulus.

16:11   Greet Herodion, my fellow Jew. Greet those in the family of Narcissus, who are in the Lord.

16:12   Greet Tryphaena and Tryphosa, who have worked hard in the Lord. Greet my dear friend Persis, who has worked very hard in the Lord.

16:13   Greet Rufus, the one chosen by the Lord, and his mother, who has been a mother to me, too.

16:15   Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas and all the saints who are with them.

16:16   Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.

16:17   Now I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who create divisions and sinful enticements in opposition to the teaching you have learned. Stay away from them!

16:18   For such people are not serving Christ our Lord but their own desires. By their smooth talk and flattering words they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.

16:19   For your obedience has become known to everyone, and I am full of joy for you. But I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.

16:20   The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

16:21   Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you, as do Lucius, Jason, and Sosipater, my fellow Jews.

16:22   I, Tertius, who wrote down this letter, greet you in the Lord.

16:23   Gaius, who is host to me and the whole church, greets you. Erastus, the city treasurer, and our brother Quartus greet you.

16:24   {\cf15\I May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you!

16:25   Now to the one who is able to strengthen you by my gospel and the message that I preach about Jesus Christ, by revealing the secret that was kept in silence in long ages past

16:26   but now has been made known through the prophets to all the gentiles, in keeping with the decree of the eternal God to bring them to the obedience of faith-

16:27   to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be glory forever! Amen.
