Philemon 1

CEB 1 From Paul, who is a prisoner for the cause of Christ Jesus, and our brother Timothy. To Philemon our dearly loved coworker, NRS 1 Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, To Philemon our dear friend and co-worker, CEB 2 Apphia our sister, Archippus our fellow soldier, and the church that meets in your house. NRS 2 to Apphia our sister, to Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in your house: CEB 3 May the grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. NRS 3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. CEB 4 Philemon, I thank my God every time I mention you in my prayers NRS 4 When I remember you in my prayers, I always thank my God CEB 5 because I've heard of your love and faithfulness, which you have both for the Lord Jesus and for all God's people. NRS 5 because I hear of your love for all the saints and your faith toward the Lord Jesus. CEB 6 I pray that your partnership in the faith might become effective by an understanding of all that is good among us in Christ. NRS 6 I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective when you perceive all the good that we may do for Christ. CEB 7 I have great joy and encouragement because of your love, since the hearts of God's people are refreshed by your actions, my brother. NRS 7 I have indeed received much joy and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, my brother. CEB 8 Therefore, though I have enough confidence in Christ to command you to do the right thing, NRS 8 For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty, CEB 9 I would rather appeal to you through love. I, Paul—an old man, and now also a prisoner for Christ Jesus— NRS 9 yet I would rather appeal to you on the basis of love—and I, Paul, do this as an old man, and now also as a prisoner of Christ Jesus. CEB 10 appeal to you for my child Onesimus. I became his father in the faith during my time in prison. NRS 10 I am appealing to you for my child, Onesimus, whose father I have become during my imprisonment. CEB 11 He was useless to you before, but now he is useful to both of us. NRS 11 Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is indeed useful both to you and to me. CEB 12 I'm sending him back to you, which is like sending you my own heart. NRS 12 I am sending him, that is, my own heart, back to you. CEB 13 I considered keeping him with me so that he might serve me in your place during my time in prison because of the gospel. NRS 13 I wanted to keep him with me, so that he might be of service to me in your place during my imprisonment for the gospel; CEB 14 However, I didn't want to do anything without your consent so that your act of kindness would occur willingly and not under pressure. NRS 14 but I preferred to do nothing without your consent, in order that your good deed might be voluntary and not something forced. CEB 15 Maybe this is the reason that Onesimus was separated from you for a while so that you might have him back forever— NRS 15 Perhaps this is the reason he was separated from you for a while, so that you might have him back forever, CEB 16 no longer as a slave but more than a slave—that is, as a dearly loved brother. He is especially a dearly loved brother to me. How much more can he become a brother to you, personally and spiritually in the Lord! NRS 16 no longer as a slave but more than a slave, a beloved brother—especially to me but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord. CEB 17 So, if you really consider me a partner, welcome Onesimus as if you were welcoming me. NRS 17 So if you consider me your partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. CEB 18 If he has harmed you in any way or owes you money, charge it to my account. NRS 18 If he has wronged you in any way, or owes you anything, charge that to my account. CEB 19 I, Paul, will pay it back to you (I'm writing this with my own hand). Of course, I won't mention that you owe me your life. NRS 19 I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand: I will repay it. I say nothing about your owing me even your own self. CEB 20 Yes, brother, I want this favor from you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ. NRS 20 Yes, brother, let me have this benefit from you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ. CEB 21 I'm writing to you, confident of your obedience and knowing that you will do more than what I ask. NRS 21 Confident of your obedience, I am writing to you, knowing that you will do even more than I say. CEB 22 Also, one more thing—prepare a guest room for me. I hope that I will be released from prison to be with you because of your prayers. NRS 22 One thing more—prepare a guest room for me, for I am hoping through your prayers to be restored to you. CEB 23 Epaphras, who is in prison with me for the cause of Christ Jesus, greets you, NRS 23 Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends greetings to you, CEB 24 as well as my coworkers Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke. NRS 24 and so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers. CEB 25 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. NRS 25 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
