kjv@Philemon:1:1 @ Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
kjv@Philemon:1:2 @ And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
kjv@Philemon:1:3 @ Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
kjv@Philemon:1:4 @ I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
kjv@Philemon:1:5 @ Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
kjv@Philemon: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.
kjv@Philemon:1:7 @ For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
kjv@Philemon:1:8 @ Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
kjv@Philemon:1:9 @ Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
kjv@Philemon:1:10 @ I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
kjv@Philemon:1:11 @ Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
kjv@Philemon:1:12 @ Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
kjv@Philemon:1:13 @ Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
kjv@Philemon:1:14 @ But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
kjv@Philemon:1:15 @ For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
kjv@Philemon:1:16 @ Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
kjv@Philemon:1:17 @ If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
kjv@Philemon:1:18 @ If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;
kjv@Philemon:1:19 @ I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.
kjv@Philemon:1:20 @ Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
kjv@Philemon:1:21 @ Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
kjv@Philemon:1:22 @ But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
kjv@Philemon:1:23 @ There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
kjv@Philemon:1:24 @ Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
kjv@Philemon:1:25 @ The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
