Chapter 16

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)


      I commend unto you Phebe our sister (which is a minister of the congregation of Cenchrea) that ye receive her in the Lord as it becometh saints, and that ye assist her in what soever business she needeth of your aid. For she hath succoured many, and mine own self. Greet Prisca and Aquila my helpers in Christ *Jesu, which have for my life laid down their own necks. Unto which not I only give thanks, but also the congregation of the Gentiles. Likewise greet the congregation that is in their house. Salute my well beloved Epenetes, which is the first fruit among them of Achaia. Greet Mary which bestowed much labour on us. Salute Andronicus and Junia my cousins, which were prisoners with me also, which are well taken among the Apostles, and were in Christ before me. Greet Amplias my beloved in the Lord. Salute Urban our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved. Salute Apells approved in Christ. Salute them which are of Aristobolus household. Salute Herodion my kinsman. Greet them of the household of Narcissus which are in the Lord. Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, which women did labour in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, which laboured much in the Lord. Salute Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. Greet Asineritus, Phlegon, Herman, Patrobas, Hermen, and the brethren which are with them. Salute Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olimpha, and all the saints which are with them. Salute one another with an holy kiss. The congregations of Christ salute you.
      I beseech you brethren, mark them which cause division and give occasions of evil, contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned: and avoid them. For they that are such, serve not the Lord Jesus Christ: but their own bellies, and with sweet preachings and flattering word deceive the hearts of the innocents. For your obedience extendeth to all men. I am glad no doubt of you. But yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and to be innocent as concerning evil. The God of peace tread Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesu Christ be with you.
      Timotheus my workfellow, and Lucius and Jason and Sopater my kinsmen, salute you, I Tertius salute you, which wrote this epistle in the Lord. Gaius mine host and the host of all the congregations, saluteth you. Erastus the chamberlain of the city saluteth you. And Quartus a brother saluteth you. The grace of our Lord *Jesu Christ be with you all. Amen.
      To him that is of power to establish you according to my gospell and preaching of Jesus Christ in uttering of the mystery which was kept secret since the world began, but now is opened by the scriptures of prophecy, at the commandment of the everlasting God, to stir up obedience to the faith, published among all nations: To the same God, which alone is wise, be praise through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

*Jesu: Jesus from the Hebrew.
