You know that the household of Stephanas4 were the first converts5 in Achaia,6 and they have devoted themselves to the service7 of the saints.8 I urge you, brothers,

I was glad when Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus arrived, because they have supplied what was lacking from you.1018
For they refreshed11 my spirit and yours also. Such men deserve recognition.12
