Do your best to come to me as soon as you can,
because Demas, who loved this world, left me and went to Thessalonica. Crescens went to Galatia, and Titus went to Dalmatia.
Luke is the only one still with me. Get Mark and bring him with you when you come, because he can help me in my work here.
I sent Tychicus to Ephesus.
When I was in Troas, I left my coat there with Carpus. So when you come, bring it to me, along with my books, particularly the ones written on parchment.
Alexander the metalworker did many harmful things against me. The Lord will punish him for what he did.
You also should be careful that he does not hurt you, because he fought strongly against our teaching.
The first time I defended myself, no one helped me; everyone left me. May they be forgiven.
But the Lord stayed with me and gave me strength so I could fully tell the Good News to all those who are not Jews. So I was saved from the lion's mouth.
The Lord will save me when anyone tries to hurt me, and he will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. Glory forever and ever be the Lord's. Amen.
Greet Priscilla and Aquila and the family of Onesiphorus.
Erastus stayed in Corinth, and I left Trophimus sick in Miletus.
Try as hard as you can to come to me before winter. Eubulus sends greetings to you. Also Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brothers and sisters in Christ greet you.
The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.
