Chapter 1:25 Verses

57 Philemon

(K.J.V. 1611) .

57-1:1      Paul a prisoner of Iesus Christ, & Timothie our brother vnto Philemon our dearely beloued, and fellow labourer,  

57-1:2      And to our beloued Apphia, and Archippus our fellow Souldier, and to the Church in thy house.  

57-1:3      Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Iesus Christ.  

57-1:4      I thanke my God, making mention of thee alwayes in my prayers,  

57-1:5      Hearing of thy loue, and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Iesus, and toward all Saints:  

57-1:6      That the communication of thy faith may become effectuall by the acknowledging of euery good thing, which is in you in Christ Iesus.  

57-1:7      For wee haue great ioy and consolation in thy loue, because the bowels of the Saints are refreshed by thee, brother.  

57-1:8      Wherefore, though I might bee much bolde in Christ to enioyne thee that which is conuenient;  

57-1:9      Yet for loues sake I rather beseech thee, being such a one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Iesus Christ.  

57-1:10     I beseech thee for my sonne Onesimus, whome I haue begotten in my bonds,  

57-1:11     Which in time past was to thee vnprofitable: but now profitable to thee and to me:  

57-1:12     Whom I haue sent againe: thou therfore receiue him, that is mine owne bowels.  

57-1:13     Whome I would haue reteined with mee, that in thy stead hee might haue ministred vnto me in the bonds of the Gospel.  

57-1:14     But without thy minde would I doe nothing, that thy benefite should not bee as it were of necessitie, but willingly.  

57-1:15     For perhaps hee therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receiue him for euer:  

57-1:16     Not now as a seruant, but aboue a seruant, a brother beloued, specially to mee, but how much more vnto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?  

57-1:17     If thou count mee therefore a partner, receiue him as my selfe.  

57-1:18     If hee hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account.  

57-1:19     I Paul haue written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I doe not say to thee how thou owest vnto me, euen thine owne selfe besides:  

57-1:20     Yea, brother, let mee haue ioy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowles in the Lord.  

57-1:21     Hauing confidence in thy obedience, I wrote vnto thee, knowing that thou wilt also doe more then I say.  

57-1:22     But withall prepare mee also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be giuen vnto you.  

57-1:23     There salute thee Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Iesus:  

57-1:24     Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellow labourers.  

57-1:25     The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.Written from Rome to Philemon, by Onesimus a seruant.
