057:Philemon Book 57


057:Philemon 001:001
Paul,
a prisoner of Jesus Christ,
and Timothy our brother,
unto Philemon our dearly beloved,
and fellowlabourer,


057:001:002
And to our beloved Apphia,
and Archippus our fellowsoldier,
and to the church in thy house:


057:001:003
Grace to you,
and peace,
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


057:001:004
I thank my God,
making mention of thee always in my prayers,


057:001:005
Hearing of thy love and faith,
which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus,
and toward all saints;


057:001:006
That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.


057:001:007
For we have great joy and consolation in thy love,
because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee,
brother.


057:001:008
Wherefore,
though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,


057:001:009
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.


057:001:010
I beseech thee for my son Onesimus,
whom I have begotten in my bonds:


057:001:011
Which in time past was to thee unprofitable,
but now profitable to thee and to me:


057:001:012
Whom I have sent again:
thou therefore receive him,
that is,
mine own bowels:


057:001:013
Whom I would have retained with me,
that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:


057:001:014
But without thy mind would I do nothing;
that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity,
but willingly.


057:001:015
For perhaps he therefore departed for a season,
that thou shouldest receive him for ever;


057:001:016
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?


057:001:017
If thou count me therefore a partner,
receive him as myself.


057:001:018
If he hath wronged thee,
or oweth thee ought,
put that on mine account;


057:001:019
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.


057:001:020
Yea,
brother,
let me have joy of thee in the Lord:
refresh my bowels in the Lord.


057:001:021
Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee,
knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.


057:001:022
But withal prepare me also a lodging:
for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.


057:001:023
There salute thee Epaphras,
my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;


057:001:024
Marcus,
Aristarchus,
Demas,
Lucas,
my fellowlabourers.


057:001:025
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
Amen.
