1 Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
Philemon 1:1
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
2 And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
Philemon 1:2
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Philemon 1:3
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
Philemon 1:4
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
Philemon 1:5
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
Philemon 1:6
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
Philemon 1:7
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
Philemon 1:8
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
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.
Philemon 1:9
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
Philemon 1:10
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
Philemon 1:11
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
Philemon 1:12
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
Philemon 1:13
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
Philemon 1:14
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
Philemon 1:15
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
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?
Philemon 1:16
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
Philemon 1:17
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;
Philemon 1:18
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
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.
Philemon 1:19
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
Philemon 1:20
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
Philemon 1:21
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
Philemon 1:22
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
Philemon 1:23
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
Philemon 1:24
• King James Version of the Bible originally published in 1611
25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
