“That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.”
King James Version (KJV)
16:2 In the Lord - That is, for the Lord's sake, and in a Christian manner. St. Paul seems fond of this expression.
Ro 16:2 That ye receive her in the Lord. Give her a Christian welcome. And that ye assist her. The term used in the Greek, "paristemi", is a legal one; hence it is supposed that some kind of legal business called her to Rome. She hath been a succorer of many. This would result from her office as a deaconess. Among those ministered to was the apostle himself.
