For she hath suckered many, and myne awne selfe also.
Paul willeth the brethren to greet many,

Unto whom not I onely geue thankes, but also all the congregacions of þe Gentyls. Romans 16:5 Lyke wyse, grete the congregacion that is in their house. Salute my welbeloued Ephenetes, which is þe fyrst frute of Achaia in Christ.

Romans 16:17 I beseche you brethren, marke them which cause diuisyon & geue occasions of euyll, contrary to þe doctrine, which ye haue learned: & auoyde them. Romans 16:18 For they þt are suche, serue not þe Lorde Iesus Christ, but their awne bellyes, & with swete and flatterynge wordes, deceaue the hertes of the innocentes. Romans 16:19 For your obedience is gone abroade vnto all men. I am glad therfore no dout, of you. But yet I wolde haue you wyse vnto that which is good, & to be innocente as concernynge euyll.
