1 Corinthians 16:18-20
New American Bible (Revised Edition)
18 for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. So give recognition to such people.(A)
19 [a]The churches of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Prisca together with the church at their house send you many greetings in the Lord.(B) 20 All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss.(C)Read full chapter
- 16:19–24 These paragraphs conform to the normal epistolary conclusion, but their language is overlaid with liturgical coloration as well. The greetings of the Asian churches are probably to be read, along with the letter, in the liturgy at Corinth, and the union of the church is to be expressed by a holy kiss (1 Cor 16:19–20). Paul adds to this his own greeting (1 Cor 16:21) and blessings (1 Cor 16:23–24).
