1 G3972 Paul G1198 , a prisoner G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G2532 , and G5095 Timothy G80 our brother G5371 , to Philemon G2257 our G27 dearly beloved G2532 , and G4904 fellowlabourer,
2 G2532 And G27 to our beloved G682 Apphia G2532 , and G751 Archippus G2257 our G4961 fellowsoldier 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 [G5719] I thank G3450 my G2316 God G4160 [G5734] , making G3417 mention G4675 of thee G3842 always G1909 in G3450 my G4335 prayers,
5 G191 [G5723] Hearing G4675 of thy G26 love G2532 and G4102 faith G3739 , which G2192 [G5719] thou hast G4314 toward G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G2532 , and G1519 toward G3956 all G40 saints;
6 G3704 That G2842 the fellowship G4675 of thy G4102 faith G1096 [G5638] may become G1756 effectual G1722 by G1922 the acknowledging G3956 of every G18 good thing G3588 which G1722 is in G5213 you G1519 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus.
7 G1063 For G2192 [G5719] we have G4183 great G5485 joy G2532 and G3874 consolation G1909 in G4675 thy G26 love G3754 , because G4698 the hearts G40 of the saints G373 [G5769] are refreshed G1223 by G4675 thee G80 , brother.
8 G1352 Therefore G2192 [G5723] , though I might be G4183 very G3954 bold G1722 in G5547 Christ G2004 [G5721] to command G4671 thee G433 [G5723] what is befitting,
9 G1223 Yet for G26 love's G3870 0 sake I G3123 rather G3870 [G5719] beseech G5607 [G5752] thee, being G5108 such an one G5613 as G3972 Paul G4246 the aged G1161 , and G3570 now G2532 also G1198 a prisoner G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ.
10 G3870 [G5719] I beseech G4571 thee G4012 for G1699 my G5043 son G3682 Onesimus G3739 , whom G1080 [G5656] I have begotten G1722 in G3450 my G1199 bonds:
11 G3588 Who G4218 in time past G890 0 was G4671 to thee G890 unprofitable G1161 , but G3570 now G2173 profitable G4671 to thee G2532 and G1698 to me:
12 G3739 Whom G375 [G5656] I have sent again G4771 : thou G1161 therefore G4355 [G5640] receive G846 him G5123 [G5748] , that is G1699 , my own G4698 heart:
13 G3739 Whom G1473 I G1014 [G5711] would G2722 [G5721] have retained G4314 with G1683 me G2443 , that G4675 in thy G5228 stead G1247 [G5725] he might have ministered G3427 to me G1722 in G1199 the bonds G2098 of the gospel:
14 G1161 But G5565 without G4674 thy G1106 mind G2309 [G5656] I would G4160 [G5658] do G3762 nothing G3363 0 ; that G4675 thy G18 benefit G5600 0 should G3363 not G5600 [G5753] be G5613 as G2596 it were of G318 necessity G235 , but G1595 G2596 willingly.
15 G1063 G1223 For G5029 perhaps G5563 0 he G5124 therefore G5563 [G5681] departed G4314 for G5610 a season G2443 , that G568 [G5725] thou shouldest receive G846 him G166 for ever;
16 G3765 Not now G5613 as G1401 a servant G235 , but G5228 above G1401 a servant G80 , a brother G27 beloved G3122 , especially G1698 to me G1161 , but G4214 how much G3123 more G4671 to thee G2532 , both G1722 in G4561 the flesh G2532 , and G1722 in G2962 the Lord?
17 G1487 If G2192 [G5719] thou count G1691 me G3767 therefore G2844 a partner G4355 [G5640] , receive G846 him G5613 as G1691 myself.
18 G1161 G1487 If G91 [G5656] he hath wronged G4571 thee G2228 , or G3784 [G5719] oweth G5100 thee any thing G1677 0 , put G5124 that G1677 [G5720] on G1698 my account;
19 G1473 I G3972 Paul G1125 [G5656] have written G1699 it with my own G5495 hand G1473 , I G661 [G5692] will repay G3363 0 it: although G3004 0 I do G3363 not G3004 [G5725] say G4671 to thee G3754 that G4359 0 thou owest G3427 to me G2532 even G4572 thy own self G4359 [G5719] besides.
20 G3483 Yea G80 , brother G3685 0 , let G1473 me G3685 [G5636] have joy G4675 of thee G1722 in G2962 the Lord G373 [G5657] : refresh G3450 my G4698 heart G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
21 G3982 [G5756] Having confidence G4675 in thy G5218 obedience G1125 [G5656] I wrote G4671 to thee G1492 [G5761] , knowing G3754 that G4160 0 thou wilt G2532 also G4160 [G5692] do G3739 G5228 more than G3004 [G5719] I say.
22 G1161 But G260 at the same time G2090 [G5720] prepare G3427 for me G2532 also G3578 a lodging G1063 : for G1679 [G5719] I trust G3754 that G1223 through G5216 your G4335 prayers G5483 [G5701] I shall be given G5213 to you.
23 G782 [G5736] There greet G4571 thee G1889 Epaphras G3450 , my G4869 fellowprisoner G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus;
