At my first defense, no one came to my assistance, but everyone deserted me. May it not be counted against them.
But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the proclamation might be fully made through me, and all the Gentiles might hear. So I was rescued from the lion's mouth.
The Lord will rescue me from every evil work and will bring me safely into His heavenly kingdom. To Him be the glory forever and ever! Amen.
Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.
Erastus has remained at Corinth; Trophimus I left sick at Miletus.
Make every effort to come before winter. Eubulus greets you, as do Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brothers.
The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you!
