1:1 This letter is from Paul , a prisoner for preaching the Good News about Christ Jesus , and from our brother Timothy . I am writing to Philemon , our beloved co-worker , 2 and to our sister Apphia , and to our fellow soldier Archippus , and to the church that meets in your house . 3 May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace . 4 I always thank my God when I pray for you , Philemon , 5 because I keep hearing about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all of God’s people . 6 And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ . 7 Your love has given me much joy and comfort , my brother , for your kindness has often refreshed the hearts of God’s people . 8 That is why I am boldly asking a favor of you . I could demand it in the name of Christ because it is the right thing for you to do . 9 But because of our love , I prefer simply to ask you . Consider this as a request from me Paul , an old man and now also a prisoner for the sake of Christ Jesus . 10 I appeal to you to show kindness to my child , Onesimus . I became his father in the faith while here in prison . 11 Onesimus hasn’t been of much use to you in the past , but now he is very useful to both of us . 12 I am sending him back to you , and with him comes my own heart . 13 I wanted to keep him here with me while I am in these chains for preaching the Good News , and he would have helped me on your behalf . 14 But I didn’t want to do anything without your consent . I wanted you to help because you were willing , not because you were forced . 15 It seems you lost Onesimus for a little while so that you could have him back forever . 16 He is no longer like a slave to you . He is more than a slave , for he is a beloved brother , especially to me . Now he will mean much more to you , both as a man and as a brother in the Lord . 17 So if you consider me your partner , welcome him as you would welcome me . 18 If he has wronged you in any way or owes you anything , charge it to me . 19 I , PAUL , WRITE THIS WITH MY OWN HAND : I WILL REPAY IT . AND I WON’T MENTION THAT YOU OWE ME YOUR VERY SOUL ! 20 Yes , my brother , please do me this favor for the Lord’s sake . Give me this encouragement in Christ . 21 I am confident as I write this letter that you will do what I ask and even more ! 22 One more thing please prepare a guest room for me , for I am hoping that God will answer your prayers and let me return to you soon . 23 Epaphras , my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus , sends you his greetings . 24 So do Mark , Aristarchus , Demas , and Luke , my co-workers . 25 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit .
