NT
Philippians 2:19-24
esv
I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon,
so that I too may be cheered by news of you.
For I have no one like him,
who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare.
For they all seek their own interests,
not those of Jesus Christ.
But you know Timothy’s proven worth,
how as a son with a father
he has served with me in the gospel.
I hope therefore to send him
just as soon as I see how it will go with me,
and I trust in the Lord
that shortly I myself will come also.

Philippians 2:25-30
I have thought it necessary
to send to you Epaphroditus
my brother
and fellow worker
and fellow soldier,
and your messenger
and minister to my need,
for he has been longing for you all
and has been distressed
because you heard that he was ill.
Indeed he was ill,
near to death.
But God had mercy on him,
and not only on him
but on me also,
lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
I am the more eager to send him, therefore,
that you may rejoice at seeing him again,
and that I may be less anxious.
So receive him in the Lord with all joy,
and honor such men,
for he nearly died for the work of Christ,
risking his life
to complete what was lacking in your service to me.
