Personal Greetings

Final Instructions and Greetings

17 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles 9contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; 10avoid them. 18 For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but 11their own appetites,f and 12by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. 19 For 13your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you 14to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. 20 15The God of peace 16will soon crush Satan under your feet. 17The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 21 18Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen. 22 I Tertius, 19who wrote this letter, greet you in the Lord. 23 20Gaius, who is host to me and to the whole church, greets you. Erastus, the city treasurer, and our brother Quartus, greet you.g
