Chapter 1:25 Verses  

57 Philemon  

(Websters) .  

57-1:1      Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, to Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellow-laborer,  

57-1:2      And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellow-soldier, and to the church in thy house:  

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

57-1:4      I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,  

57-1:5      Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast towards the Lord Jesus, and towards all saints;  

57-1:6      That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.  

57-1:7      For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.  

57-1:8      Wherefore, though I might be very bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient.  

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

57-1:10     I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:  

57-1:11     Who in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:  

57-1:12     Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, my own bowels:  

57-1:13     Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered to me in the bonds of the gospel:  

57-1:14     But without thy mind I would do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.  

57-1:15     For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldst receive him for ever;  

57-1:16     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?  

57-1:17     If thou accountest me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.  

57-1:18     If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee aught, put that on my account;  

57-1:19     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.  

57-1:20     Yes, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.  

57-1:21     Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote to thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.  

57-1:22     But at the same time prepare me also a lodging; for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given to you.  

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

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

57-1:25     The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
