1 G3972 Paul, G1198 a prisoner G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G2532 and G5095 Timothy G80 our brother, G5371 unto Philemon G2257 our G27 dearly beloved, G2532 and G4904 fellow-worker,
2 G2532 And G27 to G27 our beloved G682 Apphia, G2532 and G751 Archippus G2257 our G4961 fellowsoldier, G2532 and G1577 to the church G2596 in G4675 your 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, G4160 making G3417 mention G4675 of you G3842 always G1909 in G3450 my G4335 prayers,
5 G191 Hearing G4675 of your G26 love G2532 and G4102 faith, G3739 which G2192 you have G4314 toward G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus, G2532 and G1519 toward G3956 all G40 saints;
6 G3704 That G2842 the communication G4675 of your G4102 faith G1096 may become G1756 powerful G1722 by G1922 the acknowledging G3956 of every G18 good thing G3588 which is G1722 in G5213 you G1519 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus.
7 G1063 For G2192 we have G4183 great G5479 joy G2532 and G3874 consolation G1909 in G4675 your G26 love, G3754 because G4698 the hearts G40 of the saints G373 are refreshed G1223 by G4675 you, G80 brother.
8 G1352 Therefore, G2192 though I might be G4183 very G3954 bold G1722 in G5547 Christ G2004 to command G4671 you G433 that which is appropriate,
9 G1223 Yet for G26 love's G1223 sake G3870 I G3123 rather G3870 beg G5607 you, being G5108 such a one G5613 as G3972 Paul G4246 the aged, G1161 and G3570 now G2532 also G1198 a prisoner G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ.
10 G3870 I beg G4571 you G4012 for G1700 my G5043 son G3682 Onesimus, G3739 whom G1080 I have fathered G1722 in G3450 my G1199 bonds:
11 G3588 Which G4218 in times past G3588 was G4671 to you G890 unprofitable, G1161 but G3570 now G2173 profitable G4671 to you G2532 and G1698 to me:
12 G3739 Whom G375 I have sent again: G4771 you G1161 therefore G4355 receive G846 him, G5124 that G2076 is, G1699 my own G4698 heart:
13 G3739 Whom G1473 I G1014 would G2722 have retained G4314 with G1683 me, G2443 that G5228 in G4675 your G5228 place G1247 he might have ministered G3427 unto me G1722 in G1199 the bonds G2098 of the gospel:
14 G1161 But G5565 without G4674 your G1106 consent G2309 would I G4160 do G3762 nothing; G2443 that G4675 your G18 goodness G5600 should G3361 not G5600 be G5613 as it were G2596 of G318 necessity, G235 but G1595 willingly.
15 G1063 For G5029 perhaps G5563 he G5124 therefore G5563 departed G4314 for G5610 a season, G2443 that G568 you should 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 unto you, G2532 both G1722 in G4561 the flesh, G2532 and G1722 in G2962 the Lord?
17 G1487 If G2192 you count G1691 me G3767 therefore G2844 a partner, G4355 receive G846 him G5613 as G1691 myself.
18 G1487 If G91 he has wronged G4571 you, G2228 or G3784 owes G5100 you anything, G1677 put G5124 that G1698 on my G1677 account;
19 G1473 I G3972 Paul G1125 have written G1699 it with my own G5495 hand, G1473 I G661 will repay G2443 it: although G3004 I do G3361 not G3004 say G4671 to you G3754 how G4359 you owe G3427 to me G2532 even G4572 your own self G4359 besides.
20 G3483 Yes, G80 brother, G3685 let G1473 me G3685 have joy G4675 of you G1722 in G2962 the Lord: G373 refresh G3450 my G4698 hearts G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
21 G3982 Having confidence G5218 in G4675 your G5218 obedience G1125 I wrote G4671 to you, G1492 knowing G3754 that G2532 you will also G4160 do G5228 more than G3004 I say.
22 G1161 But G260 G2090 prepare G3427 me G2532 also G3578 a lodging: G1063 for G1679 I trust G3754 that G1223 through G5216 your G4335 prayers G5483 I shall be restored G5213 to you.
23 G782 There greet G4571 G1889 Epaphras, G3450 my G4869 fellowprisoner G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus;
