(bc#1133/ntc#204) Philemon 1 — Principles of living in this world with an attitude of Christian brotherhood (25 verses)
29940, 1,6795, Phle 1:1 Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
29941, 2,6796, 1:2 And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
29942, 3,6797, 1:3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
29943, 4,6798, 1:4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
29944, 5,6799, 1:5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
29945, 6,6800, 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.
29946, 7,6801, 1:7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
29947, 8,6802, 1:8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
29948, 9,6803, 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.
29949, 10,6804, Phle 1:10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
29950, 11,6805, 1:11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
29951, 12,6806, 1:12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
29952, 13,6807, 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:
29953, 14,6808, 1:14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
29954, 15,6809, 1:15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
29955, 16,6810, 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?
29956, 17,6811, 1:17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
29957, 18,6812, 1:18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;
29958, 19,6813, 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.
29959, 20,6814, Phle 1:20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
29960, 21,6815, 1:21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
29961, 22,6816, 1:22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
29962, 23,6817, 1:23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
29963, 24,6818, 1:24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
29964, 25,6819, 1:25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
