Book 57 : PHILEMON - Chapter 001


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


And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house


Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ


I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers


Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints


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


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


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


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


I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds


Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me


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


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


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


For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever


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


If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself


If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account


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


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


Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say


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


There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus


Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers


The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
