King James Bible 1769
Chapter 1:25 Verses
a prisoner of Jesus Christ,
and Timothy our brother,
unto Philemon our dearly beloved,
and Archippus our fellowsoldier,
and to the church in thy house:
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
making mention of thee always in my prayers,
which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus,
and toward all saints;
because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee,
though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
being such an one as Paul the aged,
and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
whom I have begotten in my bonds:
but now profitable to thee and to me:
thou therefore receive him,
mine own bowels:
that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity,
that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
but above a servant,
a brother beloved,
specially to me,
but how much more unto thee,
both in the flesh,
and in the Lord?
receive him as myself.
or oweth thee ought,
put that on mine account;
I will repay it:
albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.
let me have joy of thee in the Lord:
refresh my bowels in the Lord.
knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
