1 Commendo autem vobis Phoebem sororem nostram, quae est ministra ecclesiae, quae est Cenchreis,
2 ut eam suscipiatis in Domino digne sanctis et assistatis ei in quocumque negotio vestri indiguerit; etenim ipsa astitit multis et mihi ipsi.
3 Salutate Priscam et Aquilam adiutores meos in Christo Iesu,
4 qui pro anima mea suas cervices supposuerunt, quibus non solus ego gratias ago sed et cunctae ecclesiae gentium;
5 et domesticam eorum ecclesiam. Salutate Epaenetum dilectum mihi, primitias Asiae in Christo.
6 Salutate Mariam, quae multum laboravit in vobis.
7 Salutate Andronicum et Iuniam cognatos meos et concaptivos meos, qui sunt nobiles in apostolis, qui et ante me fuerunt in Christo.
8 Salutate Ampliatum dilectissimum mihi in Domino.
9 Salutate Urbanum adiutorem nostrum in Christo et Stachyn dilectum meum.
10 Salutate Apellem probatum in Christo. Salutate eos, qui sunt ex Aristobuli.
11 Salutate Herodionem cognatum meum. Salutate eos, qui sunt ex Narcissi, qui sunt in Domino.
12 Salutate Tryphaenam et Tryphosam, quae laborant in Domino. Salutate Persidam carissimam, quae multum laboravit in Domino.
13 Salutate Rufum electum in Domino et matrem eius et meam.
14 Salutate Asyncritum, Phlegonta, Hermen, Patrobam, Hermam et, qui cum eis sunt, fratres.
15 Salutate Philologum et Iuliam, Nereum et sororem eius et Olympam et omnes, qui cum eis sunt, sanctos.
16 Salutate invicem in osculo sancto. Salutant vos omnes ecclesiae Christi.
17 Rogo autem vos, fratres, ut observetis eos, qui dissensiones et offendicula praeter doctrinam, quam vos didicistis, faciunt, et declinate ab illis;
18 huiusmodi enim Domino nostro Christo non serviunt sed suo ventri, et per dulces sermones et benedictiones seducunt corda innocentium.
19 Vestra enim oboedientia ad omnes pervenit; gaudeo igitur in vobis, sed volo vos sapientes esse in bono et simplices in malo.
20 Deus autem pacis conteret Satanam sub pedibus vestris velociter. Gratia Domini nostri Iesu vobiscum.
21 Salutat vos Timotheus adiutor meus et Lucius et Iason et Sosipater cognati mei.
22 Saluto vos ego Tertius, qui scripsi epistulam in Domino.
23 Salutat vos Gaius hospes meus et universae ecclesiae. Salutat vos Erastus arcarius civitatis et Quartus frater.
25 Ei autem, qui potens est vos confirmare iuxta evangelium meum et praedicationem Iesu Christi secundum revelationem mysterii temporibus aeternis taciti,
26 manifestati autem nunc, et per scripturas Prophetarum secundum praeceptum aeterni Dei ad oboeditionem fidei in cunctis gentibus patefacti,
27 soli sapienti Deo per Iesum Christum, cui gloria in saecula. Amen.
King James Version
1 I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:
2 That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.
3 Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus:
4 Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.
5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my wellbeloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.
6 Greet Mary, who bestowed much labour on us.
7 Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.
8 Greet Amplias my beloved in the Lord.
9 Salute Urbane, our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved.
10 Salute Apelles approved in Christ. Salute them which are of Aristobulus' household.
11 Salute Herodion my kinsman. Greet them that be of the household of Narcissus, which are in the Lord.
12 Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, who labour in the Lord. Salute the beloved Persis, which laboured much in the Lord.
13 Salute Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine.
14 Salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren which are with them.
15 Salute Philologus, and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints which are with them.
16 Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
21 Timotheus my workfellow, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kinsmen, salute you.
22 I Tertius, who wrote this epistle, salute you in the Lord.
23 Gaius mine host, and of the whole church, saluteth you. Erastus the chamberlain of the city saluteth you, and Quartus a brother.
24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
Written to the Romans from Corinthus, and sent by Phebe servant of the church at Cenchrea.
