1 I acommend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a 1servant of the church which is at bCenchrea; 2 that you areceive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the 1bsaints, and that you help her in whatever matter she may have need of you; for she herself has also been a helper of many, 2and of myself as well.
3 Greet aPrisca and Aquila, my fellow workers bin cChrist Jesus, 4 who for my life risked their own necks, to whom not only do I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles; 5 also greet athe church that is in their house. Greet Epaenetus, my beloved, who is the bfirst convert to Christ from 1cAsia. 6 Greet Mary, who has worked hard for you. 7 Greet Andronicus and 1Junias, my akinsmen and my bfellow prisoners, who are outstanding among the apostles, who also 2were cin Christ before me. 8 Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord. 9 Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker ain Christ, and Stachys my beloved. 10 Greet Apelles, the approved ain Christ. Greet those who are of the household of Aristobulus. 11 Greet Herodion, my akinsman. Greet those of the household of Narcissus, who are in the Lord. 12 Greet Tryphaena and Tryphosa, workers in the Lord. Greet Persis the beloved, who has worked hard in the Lord. 13 Greet aRufus, a choice man in the Lord, also his mother and mine. 14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas and the brethren with them. 15 Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all athe 1saints who are with them. 16 aGreet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.
17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and 1hindrances acontrary to the teaching which you learned, and bturn away from them. 18 For such men are aslaves, not of our Lord Christ but of btheir own 1appetites; and by their csmooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting. 19 For the report of your obedience ahas reached to all; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but bI want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. 20 aThe God of peace will soon crush bSatan under your feet.
cThe grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
22 I, Tertius, who awrite this letter, greet you in the Lord.
25 aNow to Him who is able to establish you baccording to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of cthe mystery which has been kept secret for dlong ages past, 26 but now is manifested, and by athe Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, has been made known to all the nations, leading to bobedience of faith; 27 to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, abe the glory forever. Amen.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
