Colossians 4

1Masters, present to the bondmen what is right and equitable, knowing that ye also have a Master in heavens. 2Continue in prayer, being vigilant in it with thankfulness. 3Praying simultaneously about us also, so that God may open to us a door of the word, to speak the mystery of the Christ, because of which I have also been bound, 4so that I may make it known as I ought to speak. 5Walk in wisdom toward those outside, redeeming the time, 6your speech always with grace, seasoned with salt, to know how it is fitting for you to answer each one. 7Tychicus will make known to you all things about me, the beloved brother and faithful helper and fellow bondman in the Lord. 8Whom I sent to you for this same thing, so that he may know the things about you, and may encourage your hearts, 9with Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother who is of you. They will make known to you all things here. 10Aristarchus my fellow prisoner salutes you, and Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (about whom ye received orders, if he comes to you, welcome him), 11and Jesus who is called Justus, these being the only fellow workmen from the circumcision for the kingdom of God, men who became a comfort to me. 12Epaphras, the bondman of Christ from you, salutes you, always striving for you in prayers, so that ye may stand perfect and made full in all the will of God. 13For I testify about him, that he has much zeal for you, and those in Laodicea, and those in Hierapolis. 14Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas salute you. 15Salute the brothers in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the assembly associated with his house. 16And when the letter has been read among you, cause that it be read also in the congregation of Laodiceans, and that ye also read the one from Laodicea. 17And say to Archippus, Watch the ministry that thou received in the Lord so that thou may fulfill it. 18The salutation of Paul by my hand. Remember my bonds. Grace is with you. Truly.
