Philemon’s Love and Faith

4aI thank my God always, making mention of you in my prayers, 5 because I ahear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the Isaints; 6 [and I pray] that the fellowship of your faith may become effective Ithrough the aknowledge of every good thing which is in you IIfor Christ’s sake. 7 For I have come to have much ajoy and comfort in your love, because the Ihearts of the IIsaints have been brefreshed through you, brother.

Plea for Onesimus, a Free Man

10 I aappeal to you for my bchild IcOnesimus, whom I have begotten in my IIimprisonment, 11 who formerly was useless to you, but now is useful both to you and to me. 12 I have sent him back to you in person, that is, [sending] my very heart, 13 whom I wished to keep with me, so that on your behalf he might minister to me in my Iaimprisonment for the gospel; 14 but without your consent I did not want to do anything, so that your goodness would anot be, in effect, by compulsion but of your own free will. 15 For perhaps ahe was for this reason separated [from you] for a while, that you would have him back forever, 16 ano longer as a slave, but more than a slave, ba beloved brother, especially to me, but how much more to you, both cin the flesh and in the Lord.

17 ¶ If then you regard me a apartner, accept him as [you would] me. 18 But if he has wronged you in any way or owes you anything, charge that to my account; 19 aI, Paul, am writing this with my own hand, I will repay it (bnot to Imention to you that you owe to me even your own self as well). 20 Yes, brother, let me benefit from you in the Lord; arefresh my heart in Christ.

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.

He rejoiceth to hear of the faith and love of Philemon,

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,

whom he desireth to forgive his servant Onesimus, and lovingly to receive him again.

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.]]]
