4:7 Final greetings

7[ref]My dear brother and faithful servant and fellow slave, Tychicus, will tell you all about me. 8I’m sending him to all of you there so you’ll find out the news that concerns you all and so that he can comfort you there. 9[ref]The faithful and dear brother, Onesimus, who’s from your place will also be with him.

10[ref]My fellow prisoner, Aristarchus, sends his greetings along with Barnabas’ cousin, Mark. You’ve already received instructions about that, so accept him if he arrives there. 11Yeshua who’s nicknamed Yustus also sends his greetings. These guys are from strict Jewish backgrounds, but they’re my only fellow-workers for God’s kingdom who became an encouragement to me.

12[ref]Epaphras sends his greetings. He’s another one from your place and a slave of messiah Yeshua who always prays for you that you will stand mature and fully confident in all of God’s will. 13I can assure you that he has strong concerns for you all, as well as those in Laodicea and in Hierapolis. 14[ref]The dear doctor Luke greets you all, as does Dermas.

15Give my greetings to the brothers and sisters in Laodicea, and to Nympha and the assembly that meets in her house, 16and whenever my letter gets read to you all, make sure that it’s also read to those from the assembly in Laodicea, and that you all also read their letter. 17[ref]Tell Archippus to make sure to fulfill the duties that the master gave him to do.

18I, Paul, am writing this final greeting in my own handwriting. Remember me here in chains.

May God’s grace be with all of you.
