Romans – a verse that should not be there

Romans 16:24 appears to be a later addition to the original writing. It does not fit into the numeric structure.

Romans 16:24 (NKJV)

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

This verse is found in the KJV and NKJV and in several other Bible translations. Other Bibles (like the NASB) have this verse in brackets with a footnote stating that the words are not in the earliest manuscripts. A few other translations (including the NIV) exclude the verse altogether.
