14 I do not write these things jto make you ashamed, but to admonish you kas my beloved children. 15 For lthough you have countless1 guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For mI became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel.


19 bmy little children, cfor whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ dis formed in you!


To Timothy, emy true child in the faith:

fGrace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

To Titus, lmy true child in ma common faith:

nGrace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.


10 I appeal to you for pmy child, qOnesimus,1 rwhose father I became in my imprisonment.
