Or deaconess
servant of the church which is at c  Cenchrea;
2that you d  receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the
Or holy ones
f  saints, and that you help her in whatever matter she may have need of you; for she herself has also been a helper of many,
Lit and of me, myself
and of myself as well.

3Greet h  Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers i  in j  Christ Jesus, 4who for my life risked their own necks, to whom not only do I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles; 5also greet k  the church that is in their house. Greet Epaenetus, my beloved, who is the l  first convert to Christ from
I.e. west coast province of Asia Minor
n  Asia.
6Greet Mary, who has worked hard for you. 7Greet Andronicus and
Or Junia (fem)
Junias, my p  kinsmen and my q  fellow prisoners, who are outstanding among the apostles, who also
Lit have become
were s  in Christ before me.

17Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and
Lit occasions of stumbling
hindrances ab  contrary to the teaching which you learned, and ac  turn away from them.

Lit belly
appetites; and by their ag  smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.
19For the report of your obedience ah  has reached to all; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but ai  I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. 20 aj  The God of peace will soon crush ak  Satan under your feet.
