17 I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned.(K) Keep away from them.(L) 18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ,(M) but their own appetites.(N) By smooth talk and flattery they deceive(O) the minds of naive people. 19 Everyone has heard(P) about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.(Q)

25 Now to him who is able(AB) to establish you in accordance with my gospel,(AC) the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery(AD) hidden for long ages past, 26 but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings(AE) by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to the obedience that comes from[b] faith(AF) 27 to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.(AG)
