   1: Masters, render unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.
   2: Continue stedfastly in prayer, watching therein with thanksgiving;
   3: withal praying for us also, that God may open unto us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds;
   4: that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
   5: Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
   6: Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer each one.
   7: All my affairs shall Tychicus make known unto you, the beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow-servant in the Lord:
   8: whom I have sent you for this very purpose, that ye may know our state, and that he may comfort your hearts;
   9: together with Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They shall make known unto you all things that [are done] here.
   10: Aristarchus my fellow-prisoner saluteth you, and Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (touching whom ye received commandments; if he come unto you, receive him),
