Be alert, stand firm in the faith, be brave and strong.
Your every [action] must be done with love.
Brothers, you know the household of Stephanas: they are the firstfruits of Achaia and have devoted themselves to serving the saints. I urge you
also to submit to such people, and to everyone who works and labors with them.
I am delighted over the presence of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus, because these men have made up for your absence.
For they have refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore recognize such people.
The churches of the Asian province greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you heartily in the Lord, along with the church that meets in their home.
All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
This greeting is in my own handa-Paul.
If anyone does not love the Lord, a curse be on him. Maranatha!b
