Philemon
Chapter 1

1. Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, to Philemon

our beloved and fellow-worker,

2 and to Apphia our sister, and to Archippus our fellow-soldier, 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 always, making mention of thee in my prayers,

5 hearing of thy love, and of the faith which thou hast toward the Lord

Jesus, and toward all the saints;

6 that the fellowship of thy faith may become effectual, in the knowledge

of every good thing which is in you, unto Christ.

7 For I had much joy and comfort in thy love, because the hearts of the

saints have been refreshed through thee, brother.

8. Wherefore, though I have all boldness in Christ to enjoin thee that

which is befitting,

9 yet for love's sake I rather beseech, being such a one as Paul the

aged, and now a prisoner also of Christ Jesus:

10 I beseech thee for my child, whom I have begotten in my bonds,

Onesimus,

11 who once was unprofitable to thee, but now is profitable to thee and

to me:

12 whom I have sent back to thee in his own person, that is, my very

heart:

13 whom I would fain have kept with me, that in thy behalf he might

minister unto me in the bonds of the gospel:

14 but without thy mind I would do nothing; that thy goodness should not

be as of necessity, but of free will.

15 For perhaps he was therefore parted [from thee] for a season, that

thou shouldest have him for ever;

16 no longer as a servant, but more than a servant, a brother beloved,

specially to me, but how much rather to thee, both in the flesh and in the

Lord.

17 If then thou countest me a partner, receive him as myself.

18 But if he hath wronged the at all, or oweth [thee] aught, put that to

mine account;

19 I Paul write it with mine own hand, I will repay it: that I say not

unto thee that thou owest to me even thine own self besides.

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

Christ.

21 Having confidence in thine obedience I write unto thee, knowing that

thou wilt do even beyond what I say.

22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I hope that through your

prayers I shall be granted unto you.

23 Epaphras, my fellow-prisoner in Christ Jesus, saluteth thee;

24 [and so do] Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow-workers.

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