I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy1 to you soon,2 that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you.
I have no one else like him,3 who will show genuine concern for your welfare.
For everyone looks out for their own interests,4 not those of Jesus Christ.
But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father5 he has served with me in the work of the gospel.
I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me.624
And I am confident7 in the Lord that I myself will come soon.
