Colossians 4:7-18

[7]  Tychicus will tell you all about my activities. He is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord. 

[8]  I have sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are and that he may encourage your hearts, 

[9]  and with him Onesimus, our faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They will tell you of everything that has taken place here.

[10]  Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, and Mark the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you have received instructions—if he comes to you, welcome him), 

[11]  and Jesus who is called Justus. These are the only men of the circumcision among my fellow workers for the kingdom of God, and they have been a comfort to me. 

[12]  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, greets you, always struggling on your behalf in his prayers, that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God.

[13]  For I bear him witness that he has worked hard for you and for those in Laodicea and in Hierapolis. 

[14]  Luke the beloved physician greets you, as does Demas. 

[15]  Give my greetings to the brothers at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her house. 

[16]  And when this letter has been read among you, have it also read in the church of the Laodiceans; and see that you also read the letter from Laodicea. 

[17]  And say to Archippus, “See that you fulfill the ministry that you have received in the Lord.”

[18]  I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.
