They have been a wonderful encouragement to me, as they have been to you, too. You must give proper honor to all who serve so well.
The churches here in the province of Asia a greet you heartily in the Lord, along with Aquila and Priscilla and all the others who gather in their home for church meetings.
All the brothers and sisters here have asked me to greet you for them. Greet each other in Christian love. b21

If anyone does not love the Lord, that person is cursed. Our Lord, come! c23
May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. d
