To Timothy, my true child in the faith. Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for His wrath. For it is written: Vengeance belongs to Me; I will repay, says the Lord.
So then, in this way, my dearly loved brothers, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord, dear friends.
To all who are in Rome, loved by God, called as saints. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
