Col 4 7-11

Tychicus will tell you all about my activities. He is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant[b] in the Lord. 8 I have sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are and that he may encourage your hearts,9 and with him Onesimus, our faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They will tell you of everything that has taken place here.

10 Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, and Mark the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you have received instructions—if he comes to you, welcome him), 11 and Jesus who is called Justus. These are the only men of the circumcision among my fellow workers for the kingdom of God, and they have been a comfort to me. 

Psalm 69 22-36

Let their own table before them become a snare;

    and when they are at peace, let it become a trap.[c]


Let their eyes be darkened, so that they cannot see,

    and make their loins tremble continually.


Pour out your indignation upon them,

    and let your burning anger overtake them.


May their camp be a desolation;

    let no one dwell in their tents.


For they persecute him whom you have struck down,

    and they recount the pain of those you have wounded.


Add to them punishment upon punishment;

    may they have no acquittal from you.[d]


Let them be blotted out of the book of the living;

    let them not be enrolled among the righteous.


But I am afflicted and in pain;

    let your salvation, O God, set me on high!


I will praise the name of God with a song;

    I will magnify him with thanksgiving.


This will please the Lord more than an ox

    or a bull with horns and hoofs.


When the humble see it they will be glad;

    you who seek God, let your hearts revive.


For the Lord hears the needy

    and does not despise his own people who are prisoners.


Let heaven and earth praise him,

    the seas and everything that moves in them.


For God will save Zion

    and build up the cities of Judah,

and people shall dwell there and possess it;


    the offspring of his servants shall inherit it,

    and those who love his name shall dwell in it.
