Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
Now I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon so that I also may be encouraged when I hear news about you.
But I considered it necessary to send you Epaphroditus-- my brother, co-worker, and fellow soldier, as well as your messenger and minister to my need--
Tychicus, a loved brother, a faithful servant, and a fellow slave in the Lord, will tell you all the news about me.
I have sent him to you for this very purpose, so that you may know how we are, and so that he may encourage your hearts.
And we sent Timothy, our brother and God's co-worker in the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you concerning your faith,
encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word.
