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