Chapter 1 :: Philemon

Philemon 1:1  -  Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,

Philemon 1:2  -  And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:

Philemon 1:3  -  Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Philemon 1:4  -  I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

Philemon 1:5  -  Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;

Philemon 1:6  -  That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

Philemon 1:7  -  For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

Philemon 1:8  -  Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,

Philemon 1:9  -  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.

Philemon 1:10  -  I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:

Philemon 1:11  -  Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:

Philemon 1:12  -  Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:

Philemon 1:13  -  Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:

Philemon 1:14  -  But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.

Philemon 1:15  -  For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;

Philemon 1:16  -  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?

Philemon 1:17  -  If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.

Philemon 1:18  -  If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;

Philemon 1:19  -  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.

Philemon 1:20  -  Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.

Philemon 1:21  -  Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.

Philemon 1:22  -  But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

Philemon 1:23  -  There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;

Philemon 1:24  -  Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

Philemon 1:25  -  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
