Christ Jesus. 
Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, be thus minded; and if in any

Nevertheless whereunto we are come, that we be of the same mind, let us
also continue in the same rule.

Evodia, and I beseech Syntyche, to be of one mind in the Lord.  And

laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement and the rest of my fellow
labourers, whose names are in the book of life.
