Final Greetings

Colossians 4

7 Tychicus will tell you m all about my activities. He is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant 1 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 n Onesimus, our faithful and o beloved brother, who is one of you. They will tell you of everything that has taken place here.

10 p Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, and Mark q the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you have received instructions - r if he comes to you, welcome him), 11 and Jesus who is called s Justus. t These are the only men of the circumcision among my fellow workers for the kingdom of God, and u they have been a comfort to me. 12 v Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, greets you, always w struggling on your behalf in his prayers, that you may stand x 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 y Luke the beloved physician greets you, as does z Demas. 15 Give my greetings to the brothers 2 at Laodicea, and to Nympha and a the church in her house. 16 And when b 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 c Archippus, "See that you fulfill d the ministry that you have received in the Lord."

18 I, Paul, e write this greeting with my own hand. f Remember g my chains. h Grace be with you.
