He is coming with Onesimus,1 our faithful and dear brother, who is one of you.2 They will tell you everything that is happening here.
My fellow prisoner Aristarchus3 sends you his greetings, as does Mark,4 the cousin of Barnabas.5 (You have received instructions about him; if he comes to you, welcome him.)
Jesus, who is called Justus, also sends greetings. These are the only Jews among my fellow workers6 for the kingdom of God, and they have proved a comfort to me.
Epaphras,7 who is one of you8 and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you,9 that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature10 and fully assured.
I vouch for him that he is working hard for you and for those at Laodicea11 and Hierapolis.
Our dear friend Luke,12 the doctor, and Demas13 send greetings.
Give my greetings to the brothers at Laodicea,14 and to Nympha and the church in her house.1516
