Philemon 1:13; Philemon 1:16; Philemon 1:21 (New American Standard)
whom I wished to keep with me, so that on your behalf he might minister to me in my imprisonment for the gospel;
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 Lord .
Having confidence in your obedience, I write to you, since I know that you will do even more than what I say.
