Give my greetings to Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas,
and the brothers and sisters who meet with them. Give my greetings to
Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and to Olympas and all the believers who meet with them. Greet each other with a sacred kiss. All the
churches of Christ send you their greetings.
And now I make one more appeal, my dear brothers and sisters. Watch
out for people who cause divisions and upset people’s faith by teaching
things contrary to what you have been taught. Stay away from them. Such
people are not serving Christ our Lord; they are serving their own personal interests. By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent
people. But everyone knows that you are obedient to the Lord. This makes
me very happy. I want you to be wise in doing right and to stay innocent of
any wrong. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May
the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
Timothy, my fellow worker, sends you his greetings, as do Lucius, Jason,
and Sosipater, my fellow Jews.
I, Tertius, the one writing this letter for Paul, send my greetings, too, as
one of the Lord’s followers.
Gaius says hello to you. He is my host and also serves as host to the
whole church. Erastus, the city treasurer, sends you his greetings, and so
does our brother Quartus.
Now all glory to God, who is able to make you strong, just as my Good
News says. This message about Jesus Christ has revealed his plan for you
Gentiles, a plan kept secret from the beginning of time. But now as the
prophets foretold and as the eternal God has commanded, this message
is made known to all Gentiles everywhere, so that they too might believe
and obey him. All glory to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, forever. Amen.
