Romans 16:1 And I commend to you Phoebe our sister,being a minister [also] of the assembly which is in Cenchreae; Romans 16:2 In order that ye may give her welcome in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and stand by her in any matter wherein she may have need of you; for, she also, hath proved to be a defender of many, and of my own self.
Paul willeth the brethren to greet many,

Romans 16:17 But I beseech you, brethren, to keep an eye upon them who are causing divisions and occasions of stumbling, aside from the teaching which, ye, have learned,and be turning away from them; Romans 16:18 For, they who are such, unto our Lord Christ are not doing service, but unto their own belly,and, through their smooth and flattering speech, deceive the hearts of the innocent. Romans 16:19 For, your obedience, unto all hath reached,over you, therefore, I rejoice! But I wish youto be wise, [indeed], as to that which is good, yet pure, as to that which is evil. Romans 16:20 Howbeit, the God of peace, will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The favour of our Lord Jesus, be with you.
