Be alert, stand firm in the faith, be brave, be strong.
Do all your work in love.
You know about Stephanas and his family; they are the first Christian converts in Achaia and have given themselves to the service of God's people. I beg you, my friends, 1
to follow the leadership of such people as these, and of anyone else who works and serves with them.
I am happy about the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus; they have made up for your absence
and have cheered me up, just as they cheered you up. Such men as these deserve notice.
The churches in the province of Asia send you their greetings; Aquila and Priscilla and the church that meets in their house send warm Christian greetings. 2
All the believers here send greetings. Greet one another with the kiss of peace.
With my own hand I write this: [Greetings from Paul.]
Whoever does not love the Lord - a curse on him! [Marana tha] - Our Lord, come!
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
