14 (A)Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; (B)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. (C)May it not be charged against them! 17 But (D)the Lord stood by me and (E)strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and (F)all the Gentiles might hear it. So (G)I was rescued (H)from the lion's mouth. 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. (I)To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Final Greetings

19 Greet (J)Prisca and Aquila, and (K)the household of Onesiphorus. 20 Erastus remained at Corinth, and I left (L)Trophimus, who was ill, at Miletus. 21 (M)Do your best to come before winter. Eubulus sends greetings to you, as do Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brothers.[a]

22 The Lord be (N)with your spirit. (O)Grace be with you.[b]
