The Epistle of Paul to Philemon

Return to Index.

Chapter 1

1

Paul, a prisoner of Mashiyach Yahshua, and Timothy our brother, to Philemon our beloved and fellow-worker,

2

and to Apphia our sister, and to Archippus our fellow-soldier, and to the assembly in thy house:

3

Grace to you and peace from Yahweh our Father and the Master Yahshua Mashiyach.

4

I thank my Elohim always, making mention of thee in my prayers,

5

hearing of thy love, and of the faith which thou hast toward the Master Yahshua, and toward all the saints;

6

that the fellowship of thy faith may become effectual, in the knowledge of every good thing which is in you, unto Mashiyach.

7

For I had much joy and comfort in thy love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through thee, brother.

8

Wherefore, though I have all boldness in Mashiyach to enjoin thee that which is befitting,

9

yet for love's sake I rather beseech, being such a one as Paul the aged, and now a prisoner also of Mashiyach Yahshua:

10

I beseech thee for my child, whom I have begotten in my bonds, Onesimus,

11

who once was unprofitable to thee, but now is profitable to thee and to me:

12

whom I have sent back to thee in his own person, that is, my very heart:

13

whom I would fain have kept with me, that in thy behalf he might minister unto me in the bonds of the evangel:

14

but without thy mind I would do nothing; that thy goodness should not be as of necessity, but of free will.

15

For perhaps he was therefore parted from thee for a season, that thou shouldest have him for ever;

16

no longer as a servant, but more than a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much rather to thee, both in the flesh and in Yahweh.

17

If then thou countest me a partner, receive him as myself.

18

But if he hath wronged the at all, or oweth thee aught, put that to mine account;

19

I Paul write it with mine own hand, I will repay it: that I say not unto thee that thou owest to me even thine own self besides.

20

Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in Yahweh: refresh my heart in Yahweh.

21

Having confidence in thine obedience I write unto thee, knowing that thou wilt do even beyond what I say.

22

But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I hope that through your prayers I shall be granted unto you.

23

Epaphras, my fellow-prisoner in Mashiyach Yahshua, saluteth thee;

24

and so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow-workers.

25

The grace of our Master Yahshua Ha Mashiyach be with your spirit. Amein.
