Colossians 4

1 The lords: provide the just and the equal thing s to your, your* bondservants; knowing that you* also have a Lord in the heavens.

2 Persevere in your * prayer, watching in it in thanksgiving; 3 praying at the same time concerning us also, in order that God may open a door of the word to us, to speak the mystery of the Christ, because of which I have also been bound; 4 in order that I may manifest it, as it is essential for me to speak. 5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, buying up the time. 6 Let your, your* speech always be in gratitude, having been seasoned in salt, that you* may know how it is essential for you* to answer each one.

7 Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful servant, and my fellow bondservant in the Lord will make all things known to you* from me; 8 whom I have sent to you* *for this same thing, in order that he might know about the things concerning you* and in order that he may comfort your, your* hearts; 9 together with Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother, who is one from you*. They will be making all things known to you* which are done here.

10 Aristarchus my fellow captive greets you*, and Mark, the cousin to Barnabas (concerning whom you* received commandments; if he comes to you*, accept him), 11 and Jesus who is called* Justus, who is from the circumcision. These are my only fellow workers in the kingdom of God, those who became a comfort to me. 12 Epaphras, a bondservant of Christ, the one from you*, greets you*. He is always fighting on your, your* behalf in his prayers, in order that you* might stand complete and having been fulfilled in all the will of God. 13 For* I am testifying of him, that he has much zeal on your, your* behalf, and those in Laodicea and those in Hierapolis. 14 Luke, the beloved physician and Demas greet you*. 15 Greet the brethren who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the congregation* which is in his house.

16 And whenever this letter has been read before you*, do forward it, in order that it should also be read in the congregation* of the Laodiceans, and in order that you* also should read the letter from Laodicea. 17 And say to Archippus, Beware that the service which you have received in the Lord, *that you should fulfill it.

18 The greeting from me, Paul, with my own hand. Remember my bonds. Grace is with you*. Amen.



{NOTES: Please read the Preface and other non-bible sections. * is our universal footnoting for words contained in the' Definitions' section. These words are NOT the same Greek word as the non-asterisk form; i.e. *FOR is different from FOR* is different from FOR. }
