Philemon 1

1 - Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy [our] brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
2 - And to [our] beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
3 - Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4 - I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
5 - Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
6 - That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
7 - For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
8 - Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
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.
10 - I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
11 - Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
12 - Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
13 - Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
14 - But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
15 - For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
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?
17 - If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
18 - If he hath wronged thee, or oweth [thee] ought, put that on mine account;
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.
20 - Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
21 - Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
22 - But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
23 - There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
24 - Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
25 - The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with your spirit. Amen. <[Written from Rome to Philemon, by Onesimus a servant.]>
