Philemon 1:15

Perhaps (taca). Old adverb, in N.T. only here and Romans 5:7 . That thou shouldst have him (ina auton apech). Final clause with ina and present active subjunctive of apecw, to have back, "that thou might keep on having him back." For ever (aiwnion). "Eternal," here and hereafter. Surely a noble thing for Paul to say and a word that would touch the best in Philemon.
