57 Philemon  

(Geneva 1587) .  

57-1:1      Paul a prisoner of Iesus Christ, and our brother Timotheus, vnto Philemon our deare friende, and fellowe helper,  

57-1:2      And to our deare sister Apphia, and to Archippus our fellowe souldier, and to the Church that is in thine house:  

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

57-1:4      I giue thanks to my God, making mention alwaies of thee in my praiers,  

57-1:5      (When I heare of thy loue & faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Iesus, and towarde all Saintes)  

57-1:6      That the fellowship of thy faith may bee made effectuall, and that whatsoeuer good thing is in you through Christ Iesus, may be knowen.  

57-1:7      For we haue great ioy and consolation in thy loue, because by thee, brother, the Saintes bowels are comforted.  

57-1:8      Wherefore, though I bee very bolde in Christ to commaunde thee that which is conuenient,  

57-1:9      Yet for loues sake I rather beseeche thee, though I be as I am, euen Paul aged, and euen nowe a prisoner for Iesus Christ.  

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

57-1:11     Which in times past was to thee vnprofitable, but nowe profitable both to thee and to me,  

57-1:12     Whome I haue sent againe: thou therefore receiue him, that is mine owne bowels,  

57-1:13     Whom I woulde haue reteined with mee, that in thy steade he might haue ministred vnto me in the bondes of the Gospel.  

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

57-1:15     It may be that he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receiue him for euer,  

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

57-1:17     If therefore thou count our thinges common, receiue him as my selfe.  

57-1:18     If he hath hurt thee, or oweth thee ought, that put on mine accounts.  

57-1:19     I Paul haue written this with mine owne hande: I will recompense it, albeit I doe not say to thee, that thou owest moreouer vnto me euen thine owne selfe.  

57-1:20     Yea, brother, let mee obteine this pleasure of thee in the Lorde: comfort my bowels in the Lorde.  

57-1:21     Trusting in thine obedience, I wrote vnto thee, knowing that thou wilt do eue more then I say.  

57-1:22     Moreouer also prepare mee lodging: for I trust through your prayers I shall be freely giuen vnto you.  

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

57-1:24     Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my felowe helpers.  

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