Keep on praying for us. We are sure we have a clear conscience, because we want to do the right thing at all times.
And I beg you even more earnestly to pray that God will send me back to you soon.
God has raised from death our Lord Jesus, who is the Great Shepherd of the sheep as the result of his blood, a by which the eternal covenant is sealed. May the God of peace provide you with every good thing you need in order to do his will, and may he, through Jesus Christ, do in us what pleases him. And to Christ be the glory forever and ever! Amen.
I beg you, my friends, to listen patiently to this message of encouragement; for this letter I have written you is not very long.
I want you to know that our brother Timothy has been let out of prison. If he comes soon enough, I will have him with me when I see you.
Give our greetings to all your leaders and to all God's people. The believers from Italy send you their greetings.
May God's grace be with you all.
