grep -v with multiple argument

I want to grep ORA-XXX errors in a file but not
ORA-16055: FAL request rejected
ORA-16401: archivelog rejected by RFS

Then I thought of
grep -v ORA-16055 ORA-16401 ORA-16040 ORA-12154 myfile

that does not work.

Any solution ? (other than : grep -v ORA-16055 |grep -v ORA-16401 ...)

egrep -ve 'ORA-16055|ORA-16401|ORA-16040|ORA-12154' myfile
