Personal Greetings and Love

1And I place with you Phebe our sister, being servant of the church in Cenchrea: 2That ye receive her in the Lord, worthy of the holy ones, and encourage her in whatever thing she have need of you: for she also has been the rule of many, and of myself.

3Embrace Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: 4Who for my soul have laid down their own necks: to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the nations. 5And the church in their house. Embrace my beloved Epenetus, who is the first fruits of Achaia to Christ. 6Embrace Mary, who wearied for us. 7Embrace Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are distinguished among the sent, who also have been in Christ before me. 8Embrace ye Amplias my beloved in the Lord. 9Embrace Urban, our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved. 10Embrace Apelles acceptable in Christ. Embrace them of Aristobulus. 11Embrace Herodion my kinsman. Embrace them of Narcissus, them being in the Lord. 12Embrace Tryphen a and Tryphosa, wearied in the Lord. Embrace Persis the beloved, who was much wearied in the Lord. 13Embrace Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14Embrace Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Hermes, and the brethren with them. 15Embrace Philologus, and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the holy ones with them. 16Embrace one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Christ embrace you.

Avoid Divisions
(Titus 3:9–11)

17And I beseech you, brethren, to observe narrowly them having made divisions and scandals against the teaching which ye learned; and bend away from them. 18For such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by specious language and praise completely deceive the hearts of the innocent. 19For your obedience has come to all. Therefore I rejoice for you: and I wish you truly to be wise to good, and pure to evil. 20And the God of peace will rub together Satan under your feet swiftly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with you.

Greetings from Paul’s Fellow Workers
(Colossians 4:7–14)

21Timotheus my helper, and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kinsmen, embrace you.

22I Tertius embrace you, having written the epistle in the Lord.

23Gains my guest, and of the whole church, embraces you. Erastus steward of the city embraces you, and Quartus the brother. 24The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with you all. Amen.

(Jude 1:24–25)

25And to him being able to support you according to my good news, and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept silent from eternal times, 26And now made manifest, also by the prophetic writings according to the command of the eternal God, for the obedience of faith made known to all nations: 27To the only wise God, by Jesus Christ, to whom glory forever. Amen.
