The Epistle of Paul to Philemon

Return to Index

Chapter 1

1


 

  Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy, a brother: to Philemon, our beloved and fellow labourer;  

 

 


2


 

  And to Appia, our dearest sister, and to Archippus, our fellow soldier, and to the church which is in thy house:  

 

 


3


 

  Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.  

 

 


4


 

  I give thanks to my God, always making a remembrance of thee in my prayers.  

 

 


5


 

  Hearing of thy charity and faith, which thou hast in the Lord Jesus, and towards all the saints:  

 

 


6


 

  That the communication of thy faith may be made evident in the acknowledgment of every good work, that is in you in Christ Jesus.  

 

 


7


 

  For I have had great joy and consolation in thy charity, because the bowels of the saints have been refreshed by thee, brother.  

 

 


8


 

  Wherefore though I have much confidence in Christ Jesus, to command thee that which is to the purpose:  

 

 


9


 

  For charity sake I rather beseech, whereas thou art such a one, as Paul an old man, and now a prisoner also of Jesus Christ.  

 

 


10


 

  I beseech thee for my son, whom I have begotten in my bands, Onesimus,  

 

 


11


 

  Who hath been heretofore unprofitable to thee, but now is profitable both to me and thee,  

 

 


12


 

  Whom I have sent back to thee. And do thou receive him as my own bowels.  

 

 


13


 

  Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered to me in the bands of the gospel:  

 

 


14


 

  But without thy counsel I would do nothing: that thy good deed might not be as it were of necessity, but voluntary.  

 

 


15


 

  For perhaps he therefore departed for a season from thee, that thou mightest receive him again for ever:  

 

 


16


 

  Not now as a servant, but instead of a servant, a most dear brother, especially to me: but how much more to thee both in the flesh and in the Lord?  

 

 


17


 

  If therefore thou count me a partner, receive him as myself.  

 

 


18


 

  And if he hath wronged thee in any thing, or is in thy debt, put that to my account.  

 

 


19


 

  I Paul have written it with my own hand: I will repay it: not to say to thee, that thou owest me thy own self also.  

 

 


20


 

  Yea, brother. May I enjoy thee in the Lord. Refresh my bowels in the Lord.  

 

 


21


 

  Trusting in thy obedience, I have written to thee: knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.  

 

 


22


 

  But withal prepare me also a lodging. For I hope that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.  

 

 


23


 

  There salute thee Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus;  

 

 


24


 

  Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke my fellow labourers.  

 

 


25


 

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