So, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and my crown, my dear friends, keep standing firm in union with the Lord.
I beg Evodia and I beg Syntyche to agree with each other in union with the Lord.
I also request you, loyal Syzygus, to help these women; for they have worked hard proclaiming the Good News with me, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow-workers whose names are in the Book of Life.
Rejoice in union with the Lord always! I will say it again: rejoice!
Let everyone see how reasonable and gentle you are. The Lord is near!
Don't worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving.
