I hope in the Lord Jesus 1to send Timothy to you soon, so that I too may be cheered by news of you.
For I have no one 2like him, who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare.
For they all 3seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.
But you know Timothy's4proven worth, how 5as a son with a father 6he has served with me in the gospel.
I hope therefore to send him just as soon as I see how it will go with me,
and 7I trust in the Lord that shortly I myself will come also.
