19 But I hope in the Lord Yeshua to send Timothy to you shortly, so that I too may be cheered by knowing how you are doing.
20 I have no one who compares with him, who will care so sincerely for your welfare -
21 people all put their own interests ahead of the Messiah Yeshua's.
22 But you know his character, that like a child with his father he slaved with me to advance the Good News.
23 So I hope to send him just as soon as I see how things will go with me,
24 and I am confident in the Lord that before long I myself will come too.
