19 Now I hope in YHWH Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly, that I also may be encouraged when I learn of your circumstances.
19 But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.
19 But I trust in our LORD Jesus Christ to send Ti-moÆthe-us to you soon, that I also may be at ease when I learn of your well being.
20 For I have no one like-minded, who will be genuinely concerned about your circumstances.
20 For I have no one here as interested as I am, who will sincerely care for your welfare;
21 For all seek their own interests, not the things of Christ Jesus.
21 For they all seek the things that are of themselves, not the things that are of Jesus Christ.
22 And you know his approved character, that as a child with his father he served as a slave for the gospel.
22 But ye know the proof of him, that, as a child [serveth] a father, [so] he served with me in furtherance of the gospel.
22 So know this evidence of him: that like a son with a father, so has he served with me in the Gospel.
23 Therefore I hope to send him at once, as soon as I may see how my circumstances go.
23 Him therefore I hope to send forthwith, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me
23 I hope to send him to you presently, as soon as I see how it will go with me.
24 But I have been persuaded in YHWH that I myself will also come shortly.
24 but I trust in the Lord that I myself also shall come shortly.
25 Yet I considered it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker, and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my needs;
25 Now I have considered it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and co-worker, and fellow soldier, and an attendant to my needs, but your Apostle.
25 But right now I am forced through circumstances to send to you Epaphroditus, a brother, and assistant and co-worker with me, but he is also your apostle and one who ministers to my wants.
26 since he was longing for you all, and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick.
26 For certainly, he has desired all of you, and he was saddened because you had heard that he was sick.
26 For he has been longing to see you all, and has been depressed because he knew you had heard that he had been sick.
27 For indeed he was sick, [and ]near death; but God showed mercy [on] him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
27 For he was sick, even unto death, but God took pity on him, and not only on him, but truly on myself also, so that I would not have sorrow upon sorrow.
28 Therefore I sent him more eagerly, in order that when you see him again you may have joy, and I may be less anxious.
28 I have sent him therefore the more diligently, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.
28 Therefore, I sent him more readily, in order that, by seeing him again, you may rejoice, and I may be without sorrow.
29 Receive him therefore in YHWH with the utmost joy, and hold such [ones] in honor;
29 And so, receive him with every joy in the Lord, and treat all those like him with honor.
29 Welcome him, therefore, in the LORD with all joy; and honour those who are like him
30 because for the work of Christ he drew near unto death, being careless with his life, in order that he might fill up that which was lacking in your service to me.
30 For he was brought close even to death, for the sake of the work of Christ, handing over his own life, so that he might fulfill what was lacking from you concerning my service.
