Paul, a prisoner for Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, To Phile'mon our beloved fellow worker
and Ap'phia our sister and Archip'pus our fellow soldier, and the church in your house:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers,
because I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and all the saints,
and I pray that the sharing of your faith may promote the knowledge of all the good that is ours in Christ.
For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.
