4 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

2Persevere in prayer, with mind awake and thankful heart;Exhortations Col.4.2-6Τῇ προσευχῇ προσκαρτερεῖτε, γρηγοροῦντες ἐν αὐτῇ ἐν εὐχαριστίᾳ,
3and include a prayer for us, that God may give us an opening for preaching, to tell the secret of Christ; that indeed is why I am now in prison. προσευχόμενοι ἀμα καὶ περὶ ἡμῶν, ἵνα ὁ θεὸς ἀνοίξῃ ἡμῖν θύραν τοῦ λόγου, λαλῆσαι τὸ μυστήριον τοῦ Χριστοῦ, δῖ ὃ καὶ δέδεμαι,
4Pray that I may make the secret plain, as it is my duty to do.
 ἵνα φανερώσω αὐτὸ ὡς δεῖ με λαλῆσαι.
5Behave wisely towards those outside your own number; use the present opportunity to the full. Ἐν σοφίᾳ περιπατεῖτε πρὸς τοὺς ἐξω, τὸν καιρὸν ἐξαγοραζόμενοι.
6Let your conversation be always gracious, and never insipid; study how best to talk with each person you meet.
 ὁ λόγος ὑμῶν πάντοτε ἐν χάριτι, ἀλατι ἠρτυμένος, εἰδέναι πῶς δεῖ ὑμᾶς ἑνὶ ἑκάστῳ ἀποκρίνεσθαι.
