Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, To Philemon our beloved brother and fellow worker,
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
and I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ's sake.
Therefore, though I have enough confidence in Christ to order you to do what is proper,
yet for love's sake I rather appeal to you-since I am such a person as Paul, the aged, and now also a prisoner of Christ Jesus -
Yes, brother, let me benefit from you in the Lord ; refresh my heart in Christ.
Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, greets you,
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
