Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, Unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellow laborer,
and to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in thy house:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
having heard of thy love and faith which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus and toward all saints,
that the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
