I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand.1 I will pay it back--not to mention that you owe me your very self.
I do wish, brother, that I may have some benefit from you in the Lord; refresh2 my heart in Christ.
Confident3 of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask.
And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be4 restored to you in answer to your prayers.523
Epaphras,6 my fellow prisoner7 in Christ Jesus, sends you greetings.
And so do Mark,8 Aristarchus,9 Demas10 and Luke, my fellow workers.1125
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.12
