Alexander the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will pay him back for what he did.
Watch out for him. He violently opposed what we said.
At my first hearing no one stood up in my defense. Everyone abandoned me. I pray that it won't be held against them.
However, the Lord stood by me and gave me strength so that I could finish spreading the Good News for all the nations to hear. I was snatched out of a lion's mouth.
The Lord will rescue me from all harm and will take me safely to his heavenly kingdom. Glory belongs to him forever! Amen.
Give my greetings to Prisca and Aquila and the family of Onesiphorus.
Erastus stayed in the city of Corinth and I left Trophimus in the city of Miletus because he was sick.
Hurry to visit me before winter comes. Eubulus, Pudens, Linus, Claudia and all the brothers and sisters send you greetings.
The Lord be with you. His good will be with all of you.
