Colossians, Chapter 4

4:1 Masters, render to your+ slaves that which is just and equal; knowing that you+ also have a Master in heaven.
4:2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, watching in it with thanksgiving;
4:3 as well praying for us also, that God may open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds;
4:4 that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
4:5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.
4:6 Let your+ speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you+ may know how you+ ought to answer each one.
4:7 All my affairs Tychicus will make known to you+, the beloved brother and faithful servant and fellow slave in the Lord:
4:8 whom I have sent to you+ for this very purpose, that you+ may know our state, and that he may comfort your+ hearts;
4:9 together with Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you+. They will make known to you+ all things that [are done] here.
4:10 Aristarchus my fellow-prisoner greets you+, and Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you+ received commandments; if he comes to you+, receive him),
4:11 and Jesus who is called Justus, who are of the circumcision: these [are my] only coworkers to the kingdom of God, men who have been a comfort to me.
4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you+, a slave of Christ Jesus, greets you+, always striving for you+ in his prayers, that you+ may stand perfect and fully assured in all the will of God.
4:13 For I bear him witness, that he has much labor for you+, and for them in Laodicea, and for them in Hierapolis.
4:14 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas greet you+.
4:15 Greet the brothers who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas and the church that is in her house.
4:16 And when this letter has been read among you+, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that you+ also read the letter from Laodicea.
4:17 And say to Archippus, Take heed to the service which you have received in the Lord, that you fulfill it.
4:18 The salutation of me Paul with my own hand. Remember my bonds. Grace be with you+.
