Alexander1 the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will repay him for what he has done.215
You too should be on your guard against him, because he strongly opposed our message.
At my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them.317
But the Lord stood at my side4 and gave me strength,5 so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it.6 And I was delivered from the lion's mouth.718
The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack8 and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom.9 To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.10
