Colossians 4 (21st Century King James Version)
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
4 Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equitable, knowing that ye also have a Master in Heaven.
2 Continue in prayer and watch therein with thanksgiving,
3 besides praying also for us that God would open unto us a door of utterance to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds,
4 that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outsiders, redeeming the time.
6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
7 Tychicus, who is a beloved brother and a faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord, shall declare unto you all my circumstances.
8 I have sent him unto you for the same purpose, that he might know your state and comfort your hearts,
9 and with him 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 fellow prisoner saluteth you, and also Mark, Barnabas’ sister’s son (concerning whom ye received instructions that if he come unto you, receive him),
11 and Jesus who is called Justus, who are of the Circumcision. These only are my fellow workers for the Kingdom of God, who have been a comfort unto me.
12 Epaphras, a servant of Christ who is one of you, saluteth you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
13 For I bear him record that he hath a great zeal for you and for those who are in Laodicea and those in Hierapolis.
14 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas greet you.
15 Salute the brethren who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas and the church which is in his house.
16 And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
17 And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfill it.”
18 The salutation by the hand of me, Paul. Remember my bonds. Grace be with you. Amen.
