Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
At the same time praying also for us, that God would open to us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
Walk in wisdom towards them that are without, redeeming the time.
Let your speech [be] always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
All my state shall Tychicus declare to you, [who is] a beloved brother, and a faithful minister and fellow-servant in the Lord:
Whom I have sent to you for the same purpose, that he may know your state, and comfort your hearts;
With Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is [one] of you. They will make known to you all things which [are done] here.
Aristarchus, my fellow-prisoner, saluteth you; and Marcus, sister's son to Barnabas, (concerning whom ye received commandments: if he should come to you, receive him;)
And Jesus, who is called Justus, who are of the circumcision. These only [are my] fellow-workers to the kingdom of God, who have been a comfort to me.
Epaphras, who is [one] of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
