and ask on my behalf that words may be given to me so that, outspoken and fearless, I may make known the truths (hitherto kept secret) of the Good News--
to spread which I am an ambassador in chains--so that when telling them I may speak out boldly as I ought.
But in order that you also may know how I am doing, Tychicus our dearly-loved brother and faithful helper in the Lord's service will tell you everything.
I have sent him to you for the very purpose--that you may know about us and that he may encourage you.
Peace be to the brethren, and love combined with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
May grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with perfect sincerity.
