4:1  Masters, grant your slaves justice and fairness, knowing that you also have a master in heaven.
4:2  Be devoted to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving,
4:3  praying at the same time for us also, that God may open for us a door of the message, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which also I am a prisoner,
4:4  so that I may reveal it, as it is necessary for me to speak.
4:5  Live with wisdom toward those outside, making the most of the time.
4:6  Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how it is necessary for you to answer each one.
4:7  Tychicus, my dear brother and faithful servant and fellow slave in the Lord, will make known to you all my circumstances,
4:8  whom I have sent to you for this very reason, in order that you may know our circumstances and he may encourage your hearts,
4:9  together with Onesimus, my faithful and dear brother, who is one of you. They will make known to you all the circumstances here.
4:10  Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner, greets you, and Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (about whom you received instructions—if he should come to you, welcome him),
4:11  and Jesus who is called Justus. These are the only ones who are fellow workers for the kingdom of God from the circumcision, who have been a comfort to me.
4:12  Epaphras, who is one of you, greets you, a slave of Christ always struggling on behalf of you in his prayers, that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God.

4:14  Luke the physician, our dear friend, greets you, as does Demas.
4:15  Greet the brothers in Laodicea, and Nympha and the church in her house.
4:16  And whenever this letter is read among you, see to it that it is read also among the Laodicean church, and that you also read the letter from Laodicea.
4:17  And tell Archippus, “Direct your attention to the ministry that you received in the Lord, in order that you may complete it.”
4:18  The greeting is by my hand, Paul’s. Remember my imprisonment. Grace be with you.
