Chapter 1

X Philemon

1:1  Paul, a prisoner of the Messiah YASHUWAH, and Timothy our brother, To Philemon our beloved friend and fellow laborer,

X Philemon

1:2 to the beloved Apphia, Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in your house:

X Philemon

1:3 Grace to you and peace from Elohim our Father and the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah.

X Philemon

1:4 I thank my Elohim, making mention of you always in my prayers,

X Philemon

1:5 hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Master YASHUWAH and toward all the saints,

X Philemon

1:6 that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in the Messiah YASHUWAH.

X Philemon

1:7 For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you, brother.

X Philemon

1:8 Therefore, though I might be very bold in the Messiah to command you what is fitting,

X Philemon

1:9 yet for love’s sake I rather appeal to you—being such a one as Paul, the aged, and now also a prisoner of YASHUWAH the Messiah

X Philemon

1:10 I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten while in my chains,

X Philemon

1:11 who once was unprofitable to you, but now is profitable to you and to me.

X Philemon

1:12 I am sending him back. You therefore receive him, that is, my own heart,

X Philemon

1:13 whom I wished to keep with me, that on your behalf he might minister to me in my chains for the gospel.

X Philemon

1:14 But without your consent I wanted to do nothing, that your good deed might not be by compulsion, as it were, but voluntary.

X Philemon

1:15 For perhaps he departed for a while for this purpose, that you might receive him forever,

X Philemon

1:16 no longer as a slave but more than a slave—a beloved brother, especially to me but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Master.

X Philemon

1:17 If then you count me as a partner, receive him as you would me.

X Philemon

1:18 But if he has wronged you or owes anything, put that on my account.

X Philemon

1:19 I, Paul, am writing with my own hand. I will repay—not to mention to you that you owe me even your own self besides.

X Philemon

1:20 Yes, brother, let me have joy from you in the Master; refresh my heart in the Master.

X Philemon

1:21 Having confidence in your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I say.

X Philemon

1:22 But, meanwhile, also prepare a guest room for me, for I trust that through your prayers I shall be granted to you.

X Philemon

1:23 Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in the Messiah YASHUWAH, greets you,

X Philemon

1:24 as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow laborers.

X Philemon

1:25 The grace of our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah be with your spirit. Amen.
