Pray for us.1 We are sure that we have a clear conscience2 and desire to live honorably in every way.
I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.320
May the God of peace,4 who through the blood of the eternal covenant5 brought back from the dead6 our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,721
equip you with everything good for doing his will,8 and may he work in us9 what is pleasing to him,10 through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.1122
Brothers, I urge you to bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written you only a short letter.1223
I want you to know that our brother Timothy13 has been released. If he arrives soon, I will come with him to see you.
Greet all your leaders14 and all God's people. Those from Italy15 send you their greetings.
Grace be with you all.16
