From Paul, who is a prisoner for Christ Jesus, and our brother Timothy. To our dear coworker Philemon,
our sister Apphia, our fellow soldier Archippus, and the church that meets in your house.
Good will and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are yours!
[Philemon,] I always thank my God when I mention you in my prayers because
I hear about your faithfulness to the Lord Jesus and your love for all of God's people.
As you share the faith you have in common with others, I pray that you may come to have a complete knowledge of every blessing we have in Christ.
