Tychicus4 will tell you all the news about me. He is a dear brother, a faithful minister and fellow servant5 in the Lord.
I am sending him to you for the express purpose that you may know about oura circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts.69
He is coming with Onesimus,7 our faithful and dear brother, who is one of you.8 They will tell you everything that is happening here.
My fellow prisoner Aristarchus9 sends you his greetings, as does Mark,10 the cousin of Barnabas.11 (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 workers12 for the kingdom of God, and they have proved a comfort to me.
Epaphras,13 who is one of you14 and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you,15 that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature16 and fully assured.
I vouch for him that he is working hard for you and for those at Laodicea17 and Hierapolis.
Our dear friend Luke,18 the doctor, and Demas19 send greetings.
Give my greetings to the brothers at Laodicea,20 and to Nympha and the church in her house.2116
After this letter has been read to you, see that it is also read22 in the church of the Laodiceans and that you in turn read the letter from Laodicea.
