14 (A)Luke, the beloved physician, sends you his greetings, and also (B)Demas.

10 for (A)Demas, having loved (B)this present [a]world, has deserted me and gone to (C)Thessalonica; Crescens has gone to [b](D)Galatia, (E)Titus to Dalmatia. 11 (F)Only (G)Luke is with me. Pick up (H)Mark and bring him with you, (I)for he is useful to me for service. 12 But (J)Tychicus I have sent to (K)Ephesus. 13 When you come bring the cloak which I left at (L)Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments. 14 (M)Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm; (N)the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. 15 Be on guard against him yourself, for he vigorously opposed our [c]teaching.

16 At my first defense no one supported me, but all deserted me; (O)may it not be counted against them. 17 But the Lord stood with me and (P)strengthened me, so that through me (Q)the proclamation might [d]be (R)fully accomplished, and that all (S)the Gentiles might hear; and I was (T)rescued out of (U)the lion’s mouth. 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed, and will [e](V)bring me safely to His (W)heavenly kingdom; (X)to [f]Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

19 Greet Prisca and (Y)Aquila, and (Z)the household of Onesiphorus. 20 (AA)Erastus remained at (AB)Corinth, but (AC)Trophimus I left sick at (AD)Miletus. 21 (AE)Make every effort to come before (AF)winter. Eubulus greets you, also Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brethren.

22 (AG)The Lord be with your spirit. (AH)Grace be with you.
