Romans 16:20-22 The Passion Translation (TPT)

20 And the God of peace will swiftly pound Satan to a pulp[a] under your feet! And the wonderful favor of our Lord Jesus will surround you.

21 My ministry partner, Timothy,[b] sends his loving greetings, along with Luke,[c] Jason,[d] and Sosipater,[e] my Jewish kinsmen.[f]

22 (I, Tertius,[g] am the one transcribing this letter for Paul, and I too send my greetings to all of you, as a follower of the Lord.)


  1. Romans 16:20 The Greek word suntribo means “to beat up someone to a jelly” (or pulp). See also Ps. 60:12.
  2. Romans 16:21 Timothy was a spiritual son and ministry partner to the apostle Paul. See Acts 16:1-3.
  3. Romans 16:21 Or “Lucius.” This seems to be the Luke who wrote Luke and Acts, but there remains considerable debate surrounding who that “Luke” may be.
  4. Romans 16:21 Jason also appears in Acts 17, where he opened his home to Paul, Silas, and Timothy while they were in Thessalonica. Tradition states that Jason was one of the seventy disciples sent out by Jesus and was appointed the bishop of Tarsus by Paul.
  5. Romans 16:21 According to church tradition, he was recognized as one of the seventy disciples and became the bishop of Iconium.
  6. Romans 16:21 See Acts 20:4.
  7. Romans 16:22 Tertius, the copyist for Paul, was recognized in church history as one of the seventy disciples of Jesus. He became the bishop of Iconium after Sosipater and was eventually martyred.
