Colossians 4 (asv)

4:1Masters, render unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven. 4:2Continue stedfastly in prayer, watching therein with thanksgiving; 4:3withal praying for us also, that God may open unto us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds; 4:4that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. 4:5Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. 4:6Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer each one. 4:7All my affairs shall Tychicus make known unto you, the beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow-servant in the Lord: 4:8whom I have sent you for this very purpose, that ye may know our state, and that he may comfort your hearts;4:9together with Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They shall make known unto you all things that are done here. 4:10Aristarchus my fellow-prisoner saluteth you, and Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (touching whom ye received commandments; if he come unto you, receive him), 4:11and Jesus that is called Justus, who are of the circumcision: these only are my fellow-workers unto the kingdom of God, men that have been a comfort unto me. 4:12Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, saluteth you, always striving for you in his prayers, that ye may stand perfect and fully assured in all the will of God. 4:13For I bear him witness, that he hath much labor for you, and for them in Laodicea, and for them in Hierapolis. 4:14Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas salute you. 4:15Salute the brethren that are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church that is in their house. 4:16And when this epistle hath been read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye also read the epistle from Laodicea. 4:17And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.4:18The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. Remember my bonds. Grace be with you.
