Romans 16: 3- 9, 16, 22- 27

16:3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my helpers in Christ Jesus,
16:4 who have risked their own necks on behalf of my life, for whom I give thanks, not I alone, but also all the churches of the Gentiles;
16:5 and greet the church at their house. Greet Epaenetus, my beloved, who is among the first-fruits of Asia in Christ.
16:6 Greet Mary, who has labored much among you.
16:7 Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and fellow captives, who are noble among the Apostles, and who were in Christ prior to me.
16:8 Greet Ampliatus, most beloved to me in the Lord.
16:9 Greet Urbanus, our helper in Christ Jesus, and Stachys, my beloved.
16:16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.
16:22 I, Tertius, who wrote this epistle, greet you in the Lord.
16:23 Gaius, my host, and the entire church, greets you. Erastus, the treasurer of the city, greets you, and Quartus, a brother.
16:24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
16:25 But to him who is able to confirm you according to my Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, in accord with the revelation of the mystery which has been hidden from time immemorial,
16:26 (which now has been made clear through the Scriptures of the Prophets, in accord with the precept of the eternal God, unto the obedience of faith) which has been made known among all the Gentiles:
16:27 to God, who alone is wise, through Jesus Christ, to him be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Luke 16: 9- 15

16:9 And so I say to you, make friends for yourself using iniquitous mammon, so that, when you will have passed away, they may receive you into the eternal tabernacles.
16:10 Whoever is faithful in what is least, is also faithful in what is greater. And whoever is unjust in what is small, is also unjust in what is greater.
16:11 So then, if you have not been faithful with iniquitous mammon, who will trust you with what is true?
16:12 And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to another, who will give you what is yours?
16:13 No servant is able to serve two lords. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will cling to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
16:14 But the Pharisees, who were greedy, were listening to all these things. And they ridiculed him.
16:15 And he said to them: “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the sight of men. But God knows your hearts. For what is lifted up by men is an abomination in the sight of God.
