Colossians 4 Revisions

HCSB HCSBse
5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the time. 5 Act wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time.
7 Tychicus, a loved brother, a faithful servant, and a fellow slave in the Lord, will tell you all the news about me. 7 Tychicus, our dearly loved brother, faithful servant, and fellow slave in the Lord, will tell you all the news about me.
9 He is with Onesimus, a faithful and loved brother, who is one of you. They will tell you about everything here. 9 He is with Onesimus, a faithful and dearly loved brother, who is one of you. They will tell you about everything here.
14 Luke, the loved physician, and Demas greet you. 14 Luke, the dearly loved physician, and Demas greet you.

Verse 7, 9 and 14 all have an additional "dearly" in the revised text.

Colossians 4:7
(ESV) “Tychicus will tell you all about my activities. He is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord.”

(TNIV) “Tychicus will tell you all the news about me. He is a dear brother, a faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord.”

(NLT) “Tychicus will give you a full report about how I am getting along. He is a beloved brother and faithfulhelper who serves with me in the Lord’s work.”

ESV uses beloved.
TNIV uses dear.
NLT uses beloved. I find this a little strange for the NLT.

The HCSB has revised "loved" to "dearly loved" which I think conveys the thought more accurately.
