Timothy and Epaphroditus

19 But I hope [a]in the Lord Jesus to (A)send (B)Timothy to you shortly, so that I also may be encouraged when I learn of your condition. 20 For I have no one else (C)of kindred spirit who will genuinely be concerned for your welfare. 21 For they all (D)seek after their own interests, not those of Christ Jesus. 22 But you know (E)of his proven worth, that (F)he served with me in the furtherance of the gospel (G)like a child serving his father. 23 (H)Therefore I hope to send him immediately, as soon as I see how things go with me; 24 and (I)I trust in the Lord that I myself also will be coming shortly. 25 But I thought it necessary to send to you (J)Epaphroditus, my brother and (K)fellow worker and (L)fellow soldier, who is also your [b](M)messenger and (N)minister to my need; 26 because he was longing [c]for you all and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick.
