Chapter XXI.—Conclusion.

Remember me, as Jesus Christ also remembered you. Pray ye for the Church which is in Syria, whence I am led bound to Rome, being the last of the faithful who are there, even as I have been thought worthy to be chosen628628    Literally, “to be found for.” to show forth the honour of God. Farewell in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ, our common hope.

Remember me, as Jesus Christ also remembers you, who is blessed for evermore. Pray ye for the Church of Antioch which is in Syria, whence I am led bound to Rome, being the last of the faithful that are there, who630630    Some read, “even as.” yet have been thought worthy to carry these chains to the honour of God.
