Pray also for me,1 that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly2 make known the mystery3 of the gospel,
for which I am an ambassador4 in chains.5 Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
Tychicus,6 the dear brother and faithful servant in the Lord, will tell you everything, so that you also may know how I am and what I am doing.
I am sending him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are,7 and that he may encourage you.823
Peace9 to the brothers, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.
