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 G4904 fellow worker,
2 G2532 G27 to G27 the beloved G682 Apphia, G27 to G751 Archippus, G2257 our G4961 fellow soldier, G2532 and G1577 to the assembly 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 G3842 always, G4160 making G3417 mention G4675 of you G1909 in G3450 my G4335 prayers,
5 G191 hearing G4675 of your G26 love, G2532 and G4102 of the faith G3739 which G2192 you have G4314 toward G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus, G2532 and G1519 toward G3956 all G40 the saints;
6 G3704 that G2842 the fellowship G4675 of your G4102 faith G1096 may become G1756 effective, G1722 in G1922 the knowledge G3956 of every G18 good thing G3588 which is G1722 in G5213 us G1519 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus.
7 G1063 For G2192 we have G4183 much G5479 joy G2532 and G3874 comfort G1909 in G4675 your G26 love, G3754 because G4698 the hearts G40 of the saints G373 have been refreshed G1223 through G4675 you, G80 brother.
8 G1352 Therefore, G2192 though I have G4183 all G3954 boldness 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 being G5108 such a one G5613 as G3972 Paul, G4246 the aged, G1161 but G3570 G2532 also G1198 a prisoner G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ.
10 G3870 I beg G4571 you G4012 for G1700 my G5043 child, G3739 whom G1080 I have become the father G1722 of in G3450 my G1199 chains, G3682 Onesimus,
11 G3588 who G4218 once G3588 was G890 useless G4671 to you, G1161 but G3570 now G2173 is useful G4671 to you G2532 and G1698 to me.
12 G846 I am sending him G375 back. G4771 G1161 Therefore G4355 receive G846 him, G5124 that G2076 is, G1699 my own G4698 heart,
13 G3739 whom G1473 I G1014 desired G2722 to keep G4314 with G1683 me, G2443 that G5228 on G4675 your G5228 behalf G1247 he might serve G3427 me G1722 in G1199 my chains G2098 for the Good News.
14 G1161 But G2309 I G4160 was willing to do G3762 nothing G5565 without G4674 your G1106 consent, G2443 that G4675 your G18 goodness G5600 would 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 separated G4314 from you for G5610 a while, G2443 that G568 you would have G846 him G166 forever,
16 G3765 no longer G5613 as G1401 a slave, G235 but G5228 more G1401 than a slave, G27 a beloved G80 brother, G3122 especially G1698 to me, G1161 but G4214 how much G3123 rather G4671 to you, G2532 both G1722 in G4561 the flesh G2532 and G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
17 G1487 If G2192 then you count G1691 me G2844 a partner, G4355 receive G846 him G5613 as G4355 you would receive G1691 me.
18 G1487 But if G91 he has wronged G4571 you G2228 at all, or G3784 owes G4571 you G1677 anything, put G5124 that G1698 to my G1677 account.
19 G1473 I, G3972 Paul, G1125 write G1699 this with my own G5495 hand: G1473 I G661 will repay G1473 it G2443 (not G3004 to mention G4671 to you G3754 that G4671 you G4359 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 from you G1722 in G2962 the Lord. G373 Refresh G3450 my G4698 heart G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
21 G3982 Having confidence G5218 in G4675 your G5218 obedience, G1125 I write G4671 to you, G1492 knowing G3754 that G4160 you will do G2532 even G5228 beyond G3004 what I say.
22 G1161 G260 G2532 Also, G2090 prepare G3578 a guest room G3427 for me, G1063 for G1679 I hope G3754 that G1223 through G5216 your G4335 prayers G5483 I will be restored G5213 to you.
23 G1889 Epaphras, G3450 my G4869 fellow prisoner G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus, G782 greets G4571 you,
