Philemon 1

RHE 1 Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy, a brother: to Philemon, our beloved and fellow labourer, NIV 1 Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, To Philemon our dear friend and fellow worker, RHE 2 And to Appia, our dearest sister, and to Archippus, our fellow soldier, and to the church which is in thy house. NIV 2 to Apphia our sister, to Archippus our fellow soldier and to the church that meets in your home: RHE 3 Grace to you and peace, from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. NIV 3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. RHE 4 I give thanks to my God, always making a remembrance of thee in my prayers. NIV 4 I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, RHE 5 Hearing of thy charity and faith, which thou hast in the Lord Jesus and towards all the saints: NIV 5 because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints. RHE 6 That the communication of thy faith may be made evident in the acknowledgment of every good work that is in you in Christ Jesus. NIV 6 I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. RHE 7 For I have had great joy and consolation in thy charity, because the bowels of the saints have been refreshed by thee, brother. NIV 7 Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints. RHE 8 Wherefore, though I have much confidence in Christ Jesus to command thee that which is to the purpose: NIV 8 Therefore, although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do, RHE 9 For charity sake I rather beseech, whereas thou art such a one, as Paul, an old man and now a prisoner also of Jesus Christ. NIV 9 yet I appeal to you on the basis of love. I then, as Paul--an old man and now also a prisoner of Christ Jesus-- RHE 10 I beseech thee for my son, whom I have begotten in my bands, Onesimus, NIV 10 I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, who became my son while I was in chains. RHE 11 Who hath been heretofore unprofitable to thee but now is profitable both to me and thee: NIV 11 Formerly he was useless to you, but now he has become useful both to you and to me. RHE 12 Whom I have sent back to thee. And do thou receive him as my own bowels. NIV 12 I am sending him--who is my very heart--back to you. RHE 13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered to me in the bands of the gospel. NIV 13 I would have liked to keep him with me so that he could take your place in helping me while I am in chains for the gospel. RHE 14 But without thy counsel I would do nothing: that thy good deed might not be as it were of necessity, but voluntary. NIV 14 But I did not want to do anything without your consent, so that any favor you do will be spontaneous and not forced. RHE 15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season from thee that thou mightest receive him again for ever: NIV 15 Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back for good-- RHE 16 Not now as a servant, but instead of a servant, a most dear brother, especially to me. But how much more to thee, both in the flesh and in the Lord? NIV 16 no longer as a slave, but better than a slave, as a dear brother. He is very dear to me but even dearer to you, both as a man and as a brother in the Lord. RHE 17 If therefore thou count me a partner, receive him as myself. NIV 17 So if you consider me a partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. RHE 18 And if he hath wronged thee in any thing or is in thy debt, put that to my account. NIV 18 If he has done you any wrong or owes you anything, charge it to me. RHE 19 I Paul have written it with my own hand: I will repay it: not to say to thee that thou owest me thy own self also. NIV 19 I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand. I will pay it back--not to mention that you owe me your very self. RHE 20 Yea, brother. May I enjoy thee in the Lord! Refresh my bowels in the Lord. NIV 20 I do wish, brother, that I may have some benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ. RHE 21 Trusting in thy obedience, I have written to thee: knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say. NIV 21 Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask. RHE 22 But withal prepare me also a lodging. For I hope that through your prayers I shall be given unto you. NIV 22 And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers. RHE 23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus: NIV 23 Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends you greetings. RHE 24 Mark, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my fellow labourers. NIV 24 And so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my fellow workers. RHE 25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen. NIV 25 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
