Colossians 41Masters, give to your servants that which is just and equal, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.
2Continue steadfastly in prayer, watching therein with thanksgiving; 3praying together for us also, that God may open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds; 4that I may reveal it as I ought to speak. 5Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. 6Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.
7All my affairs will be made known to you by Tychicus, the beloved brother, faithful servant, and fellow bondservant in the Lord. 8I am sending him to you for this very purpose, that you ▼
▼M TR read "he" instead of "you"may know our ▼
▼M TR read "your" instead of "our"circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts, 9together with Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They will make known to you everything that is going on here. 10Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner greets you, and Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you received commandments, "if he comes to you, receive him"), 11and Jesus who is called Justus, who are of the circumcision. These are my only fellow workers for the Kingdom of God, men who have been a comfort to me.
12Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, salutes you, always striving for you in his prayers, that you may stand perfect and fully assured ▼
▼M TR read "complete" instead of "fully assured"in all the will of God. 13For I testify about him, that he has worked hard ▼
▼M TR read "great zeal" instead of "worked hard"for you, and for those in Laodicea, and for those in Hierapolis. 14Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas greet you. 15Greet the brothers who are in Laodicea, and to Nympha ▼
▼M TR read Nymphas" instead of "Nympha"and the church that is in her ▼
▼M TR read "his" instead of "her"house. 16When this letter has been read among you, cause it to be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that you also read the letter from Laodicea. 17Tell Archippus, "Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you fulfill it."
18The salutation of me, Paul, with my own hand: remember my bonds. Grace be with you. ▼
▼M TR add "Amen"
