17But even if I am being poured out as a libation over the sacrifice and the offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you 25Still, I think it necessary to send to you Epaphroditusmy brother and co-worker and fellow soldier, your messenger and minister to my need; 26for he has been longing for all of you, and has been distressed because you heard that he was ill. 27He was indeed so ill that he nearly died. But God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, so that I would not have one sorrow after another.
