I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy1 to you soon,2 that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you.
I have no one else like him,3 who takes a genuine interest in your welfare.
For everyone looks out for his own interests,4 not those of Jesus Christ.
But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father5 he has served with me in the work of the gospel.
I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me.624
And I am confident7 in the Lord that I myself will come soon.
