Masters (Adonim), give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that you also have a Master (Adon) in heaven.
2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
3 Withal praying also for us, that God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of the Messiah (haMashiach), for which I am also in bonds;
4 That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are outsiders, redeeming the time.
6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man.
7 All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you, who is a beloved brother, and a faithful minister and fellow-servant in the Lord ( YHWH);
8 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that he might know your estate, and comfort your hearts;
9 With Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They shall make known unto you all things which are done here.
10 Aristarchus my fellowprisoner saluteth you, and Marcus, sister’s son to Barnabas, (touching whom you received commandments; if he comes unto you, receive him;)
11 And Joshua (A33Yeshua), who is called Justus, who are of the circumcised. These only are my fellowworkers unto the kingdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), who have been a comfort unto me.
12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of the Messiah (haMashiach), saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).
13 For I bear him record, that he hath a great zeal for you, and them that are in Laodicea, and them in Hierapolis.
14 Luke (Luqas), the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.
15 Salute the brethren who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the assembly who is in his house.
16 And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the assembly of the Laodiceans; and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
17 And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord (YHWH), that you fulfil it.”
18 The salutation by the hand of me Paul. Remember my bonds. Grace be with you. So be it (Amen).
