The Epistle of Paul to Philemon

Return to Index

Chapter 1

1


 

  Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, to Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellow-laborer,  

 

 


2


 

  And to our beloved Apphia, and 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, making mention of thee always in my prayers,  

 

 


5


 

  Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast towards the Lord Jesus, and towards 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 very bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient.  

 

 


9


 

  Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such 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


 

  Who 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, my own bowels:  

 

 


13


 

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

 

 


14


 

  But without thy mind I would 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 shouldst receive him for ever;  

 

 


16


 

  Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more to thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?  

 

 


17


 

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

 

 


18


 

  If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee aught, put that on my account;  

 

 


19


 

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

 

 


20


 

  Yes, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.  

 

 


21


 

  Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote to thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.  

 

 


22


 

  But at the same time prepare me also a lodging; for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given to you.  

 

 


23


 

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

 

 


24


 

  Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellow-laborers.  

 

 


25


 

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