Fellow Workers

1 Masters, grant to your slaves justice and fairness, knowing R194 that you too have a Master in heaven.

2 Devote R195 yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; 3 praying at the same time for R196 us as well, that God will open up to us a door R197 for the R198 word, so that we may speak forth the R199 mystery of Christ, for which I have also been R200 imprisoned; 4 that I may make it clear in R201 the way I ought to speak.

5 Conduct R202 F95 yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, R203 making R204 F96 the most of the opportunity. 6 Let R205 your speech always be with F97 grace, as though seasoned with salt, R206 so that you will know how you should respond R207 to each person.

7 As R208 to all my affairs, Tychicus, R209 our beloved R210 brother and faithful servant and fellow bond-servant in the Lord, will bring you information. 8 For R211 I have sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage R212 your hearts; 9 and F98 with him Onesimus, R213 our faithful and beloved R214 brother, who R215 is one of your number. They will inform you about the whole situation here.

10 Aristarchus, R216 my fellow R217 prisoner, sends you his greetings; and also Barnabas's R218 cousin Mark (about whom you received instructions; F99 if R219 he comes to you, welcome him); 11 and also Jesus who is called Justus; these are the only fellow R220 workers for the kingdom of God who R221 are from the circumcision, and they have proved to be an encouragement to me. 12 Epaphras, R222 who R223 is one of your number, a bondslave of Jesus Christ, sends you his greetings, always laboring R224 earnestly for you in his prayers, that you may stand F100 perfect R225 F101 and fully F102 assured in all the will of God. 13 For I testify for him that he has a F103 deep concern for you and for those who are in Laodicea R226 and Hierapolis. 14 Luke, R227 the beloved physician, sends you his greetings, and also Demas. R228 15 Greet the brethren who are in Laodicea R229 and also Nympha F104 and the R230 church that is in her F105 house. 16 When R231 this F106 letter is read among you, have it also read in the church of the Laodiceans; and you, for your part read R231 my F106 letter that is coming from Laodicea. R232 17 Say to Archippus, R233 "Take heed to the ministry R234 which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill F107 it."

18 I, F108 Paul, write R235 this greeting with my own hand. Remember R236 my imprisonment. R237 F109 Grace R238 be with you.
