1: The masters! that which is righteous and equal to the servants give ye, having known that ye also have a Master in the heavens. 2: In the prayer continue ye, watching in it in thanksgiving; 3: praying at the same time also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to speak the secret of the Christ, because of which also I have been bound, 4: that I may manifest it, as it behoveth me to speak; 5: in wisdom walk ye toward those without, the time forestalling; 6: your word always in grace -- with salt being seasoned -- to know how it behoveth you to answer each one. 7: All the things concerning me make known to you shall Tychicus -- the beloved brother, and faithful ministrant, and fellow-servant in the Lord -- 8: whom I did send unto you for this very thing, that he might know the things concerning you, and might comfort your hearts, 9: with Onesimus the faithful and beloved brother, who is of you; all things to you shall they make known that [are] here. 10: Salute you doth Aristarchus, my fellow-captive, and Marcus, the nephew of Barnabas, (concerning whom ye did receive commands -- if he may come unto you receive him,) 11: and Jesus who is called Justus, who are of the circumcision: these only [are] fellow-workers for the reign of God who did become a comfort to me. 12: Salute you doth Epaphras, who [is] of you, a servant of Christ, always striving for you in the prayers, that ye may stand perfect and made full in all the will of God, 13: for I do testify to him, that he hath much zeal for you, and those in Laodicea, and those in Hierapolis. 14: Salute you doth Lukas, the beloved physician, and Demas; 15: salute ye those in Laodicea -- brethren, and Nymphas, and the assembly in his house; 16: and when the epistle may be read with you, cause that also in the assembly of the Laodiceans it may be read, and the [epistle] from Laodicea that ye also may read; 17: and say to Archippus, 'See to the ministration that thou didst receive in the Lord, that thou mayest fulfil it.' 18: The salutation by the hand of me, Paul; remember my bonds; the grace [is] with you. Amen.
