Philemon 1

Philemon 1:1 Paul a prisoner of Iesus Christ, and our brother Timotheus, vnto Philemon our deare friende, and fellowe helper, Philemon 1:2 And to our deare sister Apphia, and to Archippus our fellowe souldier, and to the Church that is in thine house: Philemon 1:3 Grace be with you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Iesus Christ.

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

Philemon 1:4 I giue thanks to my God, making mention alwaies of thee in my praiers, Philemon 1:5 (When I heare of thy loue & faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Iesus, and towarde all Saintes) Philemon 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. Philemon 1:7 For we haue great ioy and consolation in thy loue, because by thee, brother, the Saintes bowels are comforted. Philemon 1:8 Wherefore, though I bee very bolde in Christ to commaunde 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 beseeche thee, though I be as I am, euen Paul aged, and euen nowe a prisoner for Iesus Christ. Philemon 1:10 I beseeche thee for my sonne Onesimus, whome I haue begotten in my bondes, Philemon 1:11 Which in times past was to thee vnprofitable, but nowe profitable both to thee and to me, Philemon 1:12 Whome I haue sent againe: thou therefore receiue him, that is mine owne bowels, Philemon 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. Philemon 1:14 But without thy minde woulde I doe nothing, that thy benefite should not be as it were of necessitie, but willingly. Philemon 1:15 It may be that he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receiue him for euer, Philemon 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? Philemon 1:17 If therefore thou count our thinges common, receiue him as my selfe. Philemon 1:18 If he hath hurt thee, or oweth thee ought, that put on mine accounts. Philemon 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. Philemon 1:20 Yea, brother, let mee obteine this pleasure of thee in the Lorde: comfort my bowels in the Lorde. Philemon 1:21 Trusting in thine obedience, I wrote vnto thee, knowing that thou wilt do eue more then I say. Philemon 1:22 Moreouer also prepare mee lodging: for I trust through your prayers I shall be freely giuen vnto you. Philemon 1:23 There salute thee Epaphras my felowe prisoner in Christ Iesus, Philemon 1:24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my felowe helpers. Philemon 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.}
