Paul willeth the brethren to greet many,
Romans 16:3 Salute Priscilla and Aquilas, my fellow-workmen in Christ Jesus Romans 16:4 who for my life their own neck did lay down, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the assemblies of the nations Romans 16:5 and the assembly at their house; salute Epaenetus, my beloved, who is first-fruit of Achaia to Christ. Romans 16:6 Salute Mary, who did labour much for us; Romans 16:7 salute Andronicus and Junias, my kindred, and my fellow-captives, who are of note among the apostles, who also have been in Christ before me. Romans 16:8 Salute Amplias, my beloved in the Lord; Romans 16:9 salute Arbanus, our fellow-workman in Christ, and Stachys, my beloved; Romans 16:10 salute Apelles, the approved in Christ; salute those of the [household] of Aristobulus; Romans 16:11 salute Herodion, my kinsman; salute those of the [household] of Narcissus, who are in the Lord; Romans 16:12 salute Tryphaena, and Tryphosa, who are labouring in the Lord; salute Persis, the beloved, who did labour much in the Lord. Romans 16:13 Salute Rufus, the choice one in the Lord, and his mother and mine, Romans 16:14 salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren with them; Romans 16:15 salute Philologus, and Julias, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints with them; Romans 16:16 salute one another in a holy kiss; the assemblies of Christ do salute you.
and adviseth them to take heed of those which cause dissension and offences:
Romans 16:17 And I call upon you, brethren, to mark those who the divisions and the stumbling-blocks, contrary to the teaching that ye did learn, are causing, and turn ye away from them; Romans 16:18 for such our Lord Jesus Christ do not serve, but their own belly; and through the good word and fair speech they deceive the hearts of the harmless, Romans 16:19 for your obedience did reach to all; I rejoice, therefore, as regards you, and I wish you to be wise, indeed, as to the good, and harmless as to the evil; Romans 16:20 and the God of the peace shall bruise the Adversary under your feet quickly; the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen!
and, after their sundry salutations, endeth with praise and thanks to God.
Romans 16:21 Salute you do Timotheus, my fellow-workman, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kindred; Romans 16:22 I Tertius salute you (who wrote the letter) in the Lord; Romans 16:23 salute you doth Gaius, my host, and of the whole assembly; salute you doth Erastus, the steward of the city, and Quartus the brother, Romans 16:24 the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen. Romans 16:25 And to Him who is able to establish you, according to my good news, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the secret, in the times of the ages having been kept silent, Romans 16:26 and now having been made manifest, also, through prophetic writings, according to a command of the age-during God, having been made known to all the nations for obedience of faith Romans 16:27 to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to him [be] glory to the ages. Amen.
