Philemon 1:5; Philemon 1:10; Philemon 1:13; Philemon 1:21 (New American Standard)
because I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints ;
I appeal to you for my child Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my imprisonment,
whom I wished to keep with me, so that on your behalf he might minister to me in my imprisonment for the gospel ;
Having confidence in your obedience, I write to you, since I know that you will do even more than what I say.
