Romans 16:1-27

Personal Greetings

1I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon16:1 Or servant16:1 The word deacon refers here to a Christian designated to serve with the overseers/elders of the church in a variety of ways; similarly in Phil. 1:1 and 1 Tim. 3:8,12. of the church in Cenchreae. 2I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me.

3Greet Priscilla16:3 Greek Prisca, a variant of Priscilla and Aquila, my co-workers in Christ Jesus. 4They risked their lives for me. Not only I but all the churches of the Gentiles are grateful to them.

5Greet also the church that meets at their house.

Greet my dear friend Epenetus, who was the first convert to Christ in the province of Asia.

6Greet Mary, who worked very hard for you.

7Greet Andronicus and Junia, my fellow Jews who have been in prison with me. They are outstanding among16:7 Or are esteemed by the apostles, and they were in Christ before I was.

8Greet Ampliatus, my dear friend in the Lord.

9Greet Urbanus, our co-worker in Christ, and my dear friend Stachys.

10Greet Apelles, whose fidelity to Christ has stood the test.

Greet those who belong to the household of Aristobulus.

11Greet Herodion, my fellow Jew.

Greet those in the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord.

12Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, those women who work hard in the Lord.

Greet my dear friend Persis, another woman who has worked very hard in the Lord.

13Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother, who has been a mother to me, too.

14Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas and the other brothers and sisters with them.

15Greet Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas and all the Lord’s people who are with them.

16Greet one another with a holy kiss.

All the churches of Christ send greetings.

17I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 18For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. 19Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.

20The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.

The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

21Timothy, my co-worker, sends his greetings to you, as do Lucius, Jason and Sosipater, my fellow Jews.

22I, Tertius, who wrote down this letter, greet you in the Lord.

23Gaius, whose hospitality I and the whole church here enjoy, sends you his greetings.

Erastus, who is the city’s director of public works, and our brother Quartus send you their greetings. 2416:24 Some manuscripts include here May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you. Amen.

25Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, 26but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to the obedience that comes from16:26 Or that is faith— 27to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.

罗马书 16:1-27


1现在我给你们推荐我们的姊妹菲比,她是坚革哩教会的女执事。 2请你们因为在主里的关系,照着做圣徒的本分接待她。无论她有什么需要,请你们帮助她,因为她帮助过许多人,也帮助过我。


3请代我问候百基拉亚居拉夫妇,他们是我在基督耶稣里的同工, 4为了救我将生死置之度外。不但我感谢他们,就是外族人的教会也感谢他们。 5请问候在他们家中聚会的教会。请问候我所爱的以拜尼土,他在亚细亚最先信主。 6请问候玛丽亚。她为你们受尽了劳苦。 7请问候安多尼古犹尼亚,他们是我的亲人,曾与我一同坐牢,同受患难,在使徒中很有名望,比我先信基督。 8请问候我在主里所爱的暗伯利9请问候在基督里与我同工的耳巴奴和我所爱的士大古10请问候亚比利,他在基督里曾受过考验。请问候亚利多布全家。 11请问候我的亲戚希罗天。请问候拿其数家中的信徒。 12请问候土非娜土富撒,她们都为主劳苦。请问候我所爱的彼息,她为主多受劳苦。 13请问候主所拣选的鲁孚,也问候他的母亲,他的母亲就是我的母亲。 14请问候亚逊其土弗勒干黑米八罗巴黑马和他们当中的其他弟兄姊妹。 15请问候非罗罗古犹利亚尼利亚和他的妹妹、阿林巴和他们那里的众圣徒。 16你们要以圣洁的吻彼此问候。基督的众教会都问候你们。


17弟兄姊妹,我劝你们要留意那些制造分裂、设置障碍、背离你们所学之道的人,你们要避开他们。 18他们并不是在事奉我们的主基督,只是为了满足自己的欲望,用花言巧语欺骗单纯善良的人。 19你们对主的顺服已人人皆知,我为你们高兴,我希望你们在好事上聪明,在坏事上无知。 20赐平安的上帝快要把撒旦践踏在你们脚下了。愿我们主耶稣的恩典常与你们同在!
