So, brothers and sisters, I love you and miss you. You are my joy and my crown. Therefore, dear friends, keep your relationship with the Lord firm!
I encourage both Euodia and Syntyche to have the attitude the Lord wants them to have.
Yes, I also ask you, Syzugus, my true partner, to help these women. They fought beside me to spread the Good News along with Clement and the rest of my coworkers, whose names are in the Book of Life.
Always be joyful in the Lord! I'll say it again: Be joyful!
Let everyone know how considerate you are. The Lord is near.
Never worry about anything. But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks.
Then God's peace, which goes beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your thoughts and emotions through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, keep your thoughts on whatever is right or deserves praise: things that are true, honorable, fair, pure, acceptable, or commendable.
