The New Testament



IO II I2 16 18 20 and to thc congregation in their house. Remember me to my friend Epae-

netus, who is the &rst—fruits to Christ from Achaia,. Remember me to Mary, who has worked well amongst you. Remember me to my cousins and

fellow-assistants, Andronicus and junias, who are distinguished amongst the apostles, and came to Christ before me. Regards to Amplias, my friend in

the Lord; and also our companion in Christ, Urbanus; and my friend Stachys; with Apelles, the approved in Christ; and the family of Aris- tobulus; as well as my cousin Herodion. Best wishes to the family of Narcissus, who are in the Lord; with those workers for the Lord, Tryphena and 'I`ryphosa——remember- ing the good Persis, who has done much in the Lord. Best wishes to Rufus, the chosen

of the Lord, and to his and my mother; and also Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermes, with all their brothers—remembering Philolo~ gus, julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints with them. Greet each other with a holy kiss.

All the assemblies of Christ send you good wishes. But I beg of you, brothers, to look

after those who create disturbances and offences against the doctrine that you have learnt, and tum away from them. For they do not serve our Lord jesus Christ, but their own greed; and by their flattery and fair speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspicious ; for your fame has spread to all. Therefore, I am proud of you ; and wish you to be wise for good, but ignorant in evil. And the God of peace will soon tread the enemy under your feet. The grace of our Lord ]esus Christ be with you. My assistant, Timothy, and my

cousins, Luke and Jason, and Sosi- pater, send you regards. I, Tertius, who write out this letter, do the same in the Lord. My host, Gains, and the whole

assembly, with Erastus, the city trea- surer, and his brother Quartus, send ` their good wishes to you. And the Almighty confirm you by

my good news; and the preaching of jesus Christ through the revelation of a mystery, hidden for ages of time, but now displayed through the pro- phetic writings, according to the de- termination of the Eternal God, and revealed for obedient faith to all the heathen: to the only wise God be glory through jesus Christ in eternity.
