4:1  The masters! that which is righteous and equal to the servants give ye, having known that ye also have a Master in the heavens.

4:2  In the prayer continue ye, watching in it in thanksgiving;

4:3  praying at the same time also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to speak the secret of the Christ, because of which also I have been bound,

4:4  that I may manifest it, as it behoveth me to speak;

4:5  in wisdom walk ye toward those without, the time forestalling;

4:6  your word always in grace -- with salt being seasoned -- to know how it behoveth you to answer each one.

4:7  All the things concerning me make known to you shall Tychicus -- the beloved brother, and faithful ministrant, and fellow-servant in the Lord --

4:8  whom I did send unto you for this very thing, that he might know the things concerning you, and might comfort your hearts,

4:9  with Onesimus the faithful and beloved brother, who is of you; all things to you shall they make known that `are' here.

4:10  Salute you doth Aristarchus, my fellow-captive, and Marcus, the nephew of Barnabas, (concerning whom ye did receive commands -- if he may come unto you receive him,)

4:11  and Jesus who is called Justus, who are of the circumcision: these only `are' fellow-workers for the reign of God who did become a comfort to me.

4:12  Salute you doth Epaphras, who `is' of you, a servant of Christ, always striving for you in the prayers, that ye may stand perfect and made full in all the will of God,

4:13  for I do testify to him, that he hath much zeal for you, and those in Laodicea, and those in Hierapolis.

4:14  Salute you doth Lukas, the beloved physician, and Demas;

4:15  salute ye those in Laodicea -- brethren, and Nymphas, and the assembly in his house;

4:16  and when the epistle may be read with you, cause that also in the assembly of the Laodiceans it may be read, and the `epistle' from Laodicea that ye also may read;

4:17  and say to Archippus, `See to the ministration that thou didst receive in the Lord, that thou mayest fulfil it.'

4:18  The salutation by the hand of me, Paul; remember my bonds; the grace `is' with you. Amen.
