WYC 6 that the communing of thy faith be made open, in knowing of all good thing 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. WYC 7 And I had great joy and comfort in thy charity, for the entrails of holy men rested by thee, brother. [Forsooth I had great joy and comfort in thy charity, for the entrails of holy men rested, or were 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. WYC 8 For which thing I having much trust in Christ Jesus, to command to thee that that pertaineth to profit; NIV 8 Therefore, although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do, WYC 9 but I beseech more for charity, since thou art such as the old Paul, and now the bound of Jesus Christ. [+more for charity I beseech thee, since thou art such as Paul the old, now forsooth and the bound 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-- WYC 10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I in bonds begat, NIV 10 I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, who became my son while I was in chains. WYC 11 which sometime was unprofitable to thee [which sometime was to thee unprofitable], but now profitable, both to thee and to me; NIV 11 Formerly he was useless to you, but now he has become useful both to you and to me. WYC 12 whom I sent again to thee. And receive thou him as mine entrails; NIV 12 I am sending him--who is my very heart--back to you. WYC 13 whom I would withhold with me, that he should serve for thee to me in bonds 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. WYC 14 but without thy counsel I would not do any thing, that thy good should not be as of need, but willful. 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. WYC 15 For peradventure therefore he departed from thee for a time, that thou shouldest receive him without end [that thou shouldest receive him into without end]; NIV 15 Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back for good-- WYC 16 now not as a servant, but for a servant [but more than a servant] a most dear brother, most to me; and 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. WYC 17 Therefore if thou hast me a fellow, receive him as me; NIV 17 So if you consider me a partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. WYC 18 for if he hath any thing harmed thee, either oweth, areckon thou this thing to me. [forsooth if he hath any thing harmed thee, or oweth, reckon thou this thing to me.] NIV 18 If he has done you any wrong or owes you anything, charge it to me. WYC 19 I Paul wrote with mine hand, I shall yield; that I say not to thee, that also thou owest to me thyself. 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. WYC 20 So, brother, I shall use thee in the Lord; fill thou mine entrails in Christ [full-fill mine entrails in Christ]. NIV 20 I do wish, brother, that I may have some benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ. WYC 21 I trusting of thine obedience wrote to thee, witting that thou shalt do over that that I say. NIV 21 Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask. WYC 22 Also make thou ready to me an house to dwell in; for I hope that by your prayers I shall be given to 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. WYC 23 Epaphras, prisoner with me in Christ Jesus [mine even-captive in Christ Jesus], greeteth thee well, NIV 23 Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends you greetings. WYC 24 and Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, mine helpers. NIV 24 And so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas and Luke, my fellow workers. WYC 25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
