Because the church was likely to be deprived of the apostle's labours, for his departure was at hand, ver. 6-8. III. Divers particular matters, with a hint and caution, about Alexander the coppersmith, ver. 9-15. IV. He informs him of what befel him at his first answer; though men forsook him, the Lord stood by him, and this encouraged him to hope for future deliverance (ver. 16-18) And then he concludes with salutations and a benediction, ver. 19, to the end.
