Romans 16:1 I commende vnto you Phebe our sister, whiche is a minister of the Church of Cenchrea, Romans 16:2 That ye receaue her in the Lorde, as it becommeth saintes, and that ye assist her in whatsoeuer busynesse she hath nede of you: For she hath suckoured many, and my selfe also.

Paul willeth the brethren to greet many,

Salute my welbeloued Epenetus, which is the first fruite of Achaia in Christe.
