Romans 16

1 I commend to you* Phoebe our sister, who is a servant of my needs from the congregation* in Cenchreae: 2 in order that you* should accept her in the Lord, worthy of the holy, ones, and that * you* should stand beside her in whatever matter she has need from you*. For* she herself has also become an assistant of many, and of me myself.

3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, 4 who have risked their own neck on behalf of my life; whom I not only give, thanks, but also all the congregations* of the Gentiles; 5 and the congregation* who is in their house. Greet Epaenetus, my beloved, who is the first, fruit of Achaia to Christ. 6 Greet Mary, who labored much *for us. 7 Greet Andronicus and Junias, my relatives and my fellow captives, who are notable even among the apostles, who has also happened to be in Christ before me. 8 Greet Amplias, 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 from the household of Aristobulus. 11 Greet Herodion my relative. Greet those from the household of Narcissus, who are in the Lord. 12 Greet Tryphaena and Tryphosa, who are laboring in the Lord. Greet the beloved Persis, who labored much in the Lord. 13 Greet Rufus, the chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Hermas, Patrobas and the brethren who are together with them. 15 Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the holy, ones who are together with them. 16 Greet one another with* a holy kiss. The congregations* of Christ greet you*.

17 Now brethren, I am encouraging you*, to note those making {Or: practicing} the dissensions and the offenses contrary to the teaching which you* learned and are practicing, and shun away from them. 18 For* such are not serving* our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and they are deceiving the hearts of the guiltless through their smooth, talk and blessings.

19 For* your, your* obedience has reached out to all men. Therefore I rejoice over you*, but I wish for you* to be indeed wise as to what is good, and harmless to what is evil. 20 Now the God of peace will crush the Adversary under your, your* feet shortly.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is among you*.

21 Timothy my fellow worker greets you*, and Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my relatives. 22 I Tertius, who writes this letter, greet you* in the Lord. 23 Gaius greets you*, my host and of the whole congregation*. Erastus the steward of the city greets you* and Quartus the brother. 24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with all of you*. Amen.



{Verses 16: 25-27 in the KJV are in the Majority Text as Romans 14: 24 - 14: 26. }

25 (14: 24) Now to the one who is able to establish you * according to my good, news and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept, silent in times everlasting, 26 (14: 25) but now having been manifested and by the prophetic Scriptures, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, has made known to all the nations, into the obedience of the faith; 27 (14: 26) to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, in whom is the glory is forever. Amen.



{NOTES: Please read the Preface and other non-bible sections. * is our universal footnoting for words contained in the' Definitions' section. These words are NOT the same Greek word as the non-asterisk form; i.e. *FOR is different from FOR* is different from FOR. }
