1611 King James Bible

Philemon 1

Philemon 1:1 Paul a prisoner of Iesus Christ, & Timothie our brother vnto Philemon our dearely beloued, and fellow labourer, Philemon 1:2 And to our beloued Apphia, and Archippus our fellow Souldier, and to the Church in thy house. Philemon 1:3 Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Iesus Christ.

He rejoiceth to hear of the faith and love of Philemon,

Philemon 1:4 I thanke my God, making mention of thee alwayes in my prayers, Philemon 1:5 Hearing of thy loue, and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Iesus, and toward all Saints: Philemon 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. Philemon 1:7 For wee haue great ioy and consolation in thy loue, because the bowels of the Saints are refreshed by thee, brother. Philemon 1:8 Wherefore, though I might bee much bolde in Christ to enioyne thee that which is conuenient;

whom he desireth to forgive his servant Onesimus, and lovingly to receive him again.

Philemon 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. Philemon 1:10 I beseech thee for my sonne Onesimus, whome I haue begotten in my bonds, Philemon 1:11 Which in time past was to thee vnprofitable: but now profitable to thee and to me: Philemon 1:12 Whom I haue sent againe: thou therfore receiue him, that is mine owne bowels. Philemon 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. Philemon 1:14 But without thy minde would I doe nothing, that thy benefite should not bee as it were of necessitie, but willingly. Philemon 1:15 For perhaps hee therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receiue him for euer: Philemon 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? Philemon 1:17 If thou count mee therefore a partner, receiue him as my selfe. Philemon 1:18 If hee hath wronged thee, or oweth [thee ought], put that on mine account. Philemon 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: Philemon 1:20 Yea, brother, let mee haue ioy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowles in the Lord. Philemon 1:21 Hauing confidence in thy obedience, I wrote vnto thee, knowing that thou wilt also doe more then I say. Philemon 1:22 But withall prepare mee also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be giuen vnto you. Philemon 1:23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Iesus: Philemon 1:24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellow labourers. Philemon 1:25 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ [be] with your spirit. Amen. {Written from Rome to Philemon, by Onesimus a seruant.}
