(Phm 1:1 KJV)  Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,


(Phm 1:2 KJV)  And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:


(Phm 1:3 KJV)  Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


(Phm 1:4 KJV)  I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,


(Phm 1:5 KJV)  Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;


(Phm 1:6 KJV)  That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.


(Phm 1:7 KJV)  For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.


(Phm 1:8 KJV)  Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,


(Phm 1:9 KJV)  Yet for love’s sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.


(Phm 1:10 KJV)  I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:


(Phm 1:11 KJV)  Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:


(Phm 1:12 KJV)  Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:


(Phm 1:13 KJV)  Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:


(Phm 1:14 KJV)  But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.


(Phm 1:15 KJV)  For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;


(Phm 1:16 KJV)  Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?


(Phm 1:17 KJV)  If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.


(Phm 1:18 KJV)  If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;


(Phm 1:19 KJV)  I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.


(Phm 1:20 KJV)  Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.


(Phm 1:21 KJV)  Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.


(Phm 1:22 KJV)  But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.


(Phm 1:23 KJV)  There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;


(Phm 1:24 KJV)  Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.


(Phm 1:25 KJV)  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen. Written from Rome to Philemon, by Onesimus a servant.
