Personal Instructions

(A)Do your best to come to me soon. 10 For (B)Demas, (C)in love with (D)this present world, (E)has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia,[a] (F)Titus to Dalmatia. 11 (G)Luke alone is with me. Get (H)Mark and bring him with you, for he is very useful to me for ministry. 12 (I)Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus. 13 When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments. 14 (J)Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; (K)the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. 15 Beware of him yourself, for he strongly opposed our message. 16 At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me. (L)May it not be charged against them! 17 But (M)the Lord stood by me and (N)strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and (O)all the Gentiles might hear it. So (P)I was rescued (Q)from the lion's mouth. 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. (R)To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
