1 G3972 Paul, G1198 a prisoner G5547 of Christ G2424 Jesus, G2532 and G5095 Timothy G80 our brother, G5371 to Philemon G2257 our G27 beloved G2532 and G4904 fellow-worker,
2 G2532 and G27 to G682 Apphia G2532 our sister, and G27 to G751 Archippus G2257 our G4961 fellow-soldier, G2532 and G1577 to the church G2596 in G4675 thy G3624 house:
3 G5485 Grace G5213 to you G2532 and G1515 peace G575 from G2316 God G2257 our G3962 Father G2532 and G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
4 G2168 I thank G3450 my G2316 God G3842 always, G4160 making G3417 mention G4675 of thee G1909 in G3450 my G4335 prayers,
5 G191 hearing G4675 of thy G26 love, G2532 and G4102 of the faith G3739 which G2192 thou hast G4314 toward G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus, G2532 and G1519 toward G3956 all G40 the saints;
6 G3704 that G2842 the fellowship G4675 of thy G4102 faith G1096 may become G1756 effectual, G1722 in G1922 the knowledge G3956 of every G18 good thing G3588 which is G1722 in G5213 you, G1519 unto G5547 Christ.
7 G1063 For G2192 I had G4183 much G5479 joy G2532 and G3874 comfort G1909 in G4675 thy G26 love, G3754 because G4698 the hearts G40 of the saints G373 have been refreshed G1223 through G4675 thee, G80 brother.
8 G1352 Wherefore, G2192 though I have G4183 all G3954 boldness G1722 in G5547 Christ G2004 to enjoin G4671 thee G433 that which is befitting,
9 G1223 yet for G26 love's G1223 sake G3870 I G3123 rather G3870 beseech, G5607 being G5108 such a one G5613 as G3972 Paul G4246 the aged, G1161 and G3570 now G1198 a prisoner G2532 also G5547 of Christ G2424 Jesus:
10 G3870 I beseech G4571 thee G4012 for G1700 my G5043 child, G3739 whom G1080 I have begotten G1722 in G3450 my G1199 bonds, G3682 Onesimus,
11 G3588 who G4218 once G3588 was G890 unprofitable G4671 to thee, G1161 but G3570 now G2173 is profitable G4671 to thee G2532 and G1698 to me:
12 G3739 whom G375 I have sent back G4771 to thee G1161 G4355 in G846 his own person, G5124 that G2076 is, G1699 my very G4698 heart:
13 G3739 whom G1473 I G1014 would G2722 fain have kept G4314 with G1683 me, G2443 that G5228 in G4675 thy G5228 behalf G1247 he might minister G3427 unto me G1722 in G1199 the bonds G2098 of the gospel:
14 G1161 but G5565 without G4674 thy G1106 mind G2309 I G4160 would do G3762 nothing; G2443 that G4675 thy G18 goodness G5600 should G3361 not G5600 be G2596 as of G318 necessity, G235 but G2596 of G1595 free will.
15 G1063 For G5029 perhaps G5563 he G5124 was therefore G5563 parted G4314 from thee for G5610 a season, G2443 that G568 thou shouldest have G846 him G166 for ever;
16 G3765 no longer G5613 as G1401 a servant, G235 but G5228 more G1401 than a servant, G80 a brother G27 beloved, G3122 specially G1698 to me, G1161 but G4214 how much G3123 rather G4671 to thee, G2532 both G1722 in G4561 the flesh G2532 and G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
17 G1487 If G3767 then G2192 thou countest G1691 me G2844 a partner, G4355 receive G846 him G5613 as G1691 myself.
18 G1487 But if G91 he hath wronged G4571 thee G2228 at all, or G3784 oweth G4571 thee G1677 aught, put G5124 that G1698 to mine G1677 account;
19 G1473 I G3972 Paul G1125 write G1473 it G1699 with mine own G5495 hand, G1473 I G661 will repay G2443 it: that G3004 I say G3361 not G4671 unto thee G3754 that G4359 thou owest G3427 to me G2532 even G4572 thine own self G4359 besides.
20 G3483 Yea, G80 brother, G3685 let G1473 me G3685 have joy G4675 of thee G1722 in G2962 the Lord: G373 refresh G3450 my G4698 heart G1722 in G2962 Christ.
21 G3982 Having confidence G5218 in G4675 thine G5218 obedience G1125 I write G4671 unto thee, G1492 knowing G3754 that G4160 thou wilt do G2532 even G5228 beyond G3004 what I say.
22 G1161 But G260 withal G2090 prepare G3427 me G2532 also G3578 a lodging: G1063 for G1679 I hope G3754 that G1223 through G5216 your G4335 prayers G5483 I shall be granted G5213 unto you.
23 G1889 Epaphras, G3450 my G4869 fellow-prisoner G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus, G782 saluteth G4571 thee;
