King James Bible

1:1 
Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
 
1:2 
And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
 
1:3 
Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
1:4 
I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
 
1:5 
Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
 
1:6 
That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
 
1:7 
For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
 
1:8 
Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
 
1:9 
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.
 
1:10 
I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
 
1:11 
Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
 
1:12 
Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
 
1:13 
Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
 
1:14 
But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
 
1:15 
For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
 
1:16 
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?
 
1:17 
If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
 
1:18 
If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;
 
1:19 
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.
 
1:20 
Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
