Philemon 1

1:1)   Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,

1:2)   And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:

1:3)   Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:4)   I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

1:5)   Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;

1:6)   That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

1:7)   For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

1:8)   Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,

1:9)   Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.

1:10)   I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:

1:11)   Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:

1:12)   Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:

1:13)   Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:

1:14)   But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.

1:15)   For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;

1:16)   Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

1:17)   If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.

1:18)   If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;

1:19)   I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.

1:20)   Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.

1:21)   Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.

1:22)   But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

1:23)   There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;

1:24)   Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

1:25)   The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
