Timothy, my fellow worker, and Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen, salute you.
(I, Tertius, who wrote down this epistle, salute you in the Lord.)
Gaius, my host and host of the whole church, saluteth you. Erastus, the treasurer of the city, saluteth you, and Quartus, a brother.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Now to Him who has the power to establish you according to my Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret since the world began
but now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith,
to God alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
