1 Paul a prisoner of Iesus Christ, & Timothie our brother vnto Philemon our dearely beloued, and fellow labourer,

2 And to our beloued Apphia, and Archippus our fellow Souldier, and to the Church in thy house.

3 Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Iesus Christ.

4 I thanke my God, making mention of thee alwayes in my prayers,

5 Hearing of thy loue, and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Iesus, and toward all Saints:

6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectuall by the acknowledging of euery good thing, which is in you in Christ Iesus.

7 For wee haue great ioy and consolation in thy loue, because the bowels of the Saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

8 Wherefore, though I might bee much bolde in Christ to enioyne thee that which is conuenient;

9 Yet for loues sake I rather beseech thee, being such a one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Iesus Christ.

10 I beseech thee for my sonne Onesimus, whome I haue begotten in my bonds,

11 Which in time past was to thee vnprofitable: but now profitable to thee and to me:

12 Whom I haue sent againe: thou therfore receiue him, that is mine owne bowels.

13 Whome I would haue reteined with mee, that in thy stead hee might haue ministred vnto me in the bonds of the Gospel.

14 But without thy minde would I doe nothing, that thy benefite should not bee as it were of necessitie, but willingly.

15 For perhaps hee therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receiue him for euer:

16 Not now as a seruant, but aboue a seruant, a brother beloued, specially to mee, but how much more vnto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

17 If thou count mee therefore a partner, receiue him as my selfe.

18 If hee hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account.

19 I Paul haue written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I doe not say to thee how thou owest vnto me, euen thine owne selfe besides:

20 Yea, brother, let mee haue ioy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowles in the Lord.

21 Hauing confidence in thy obedience, I wrote vnto thee, knowing that thou wilt also doe more then I say.

22 But withall prepare mee also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be giuen vnto you.

23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Iesus:

24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellow labourers.

25 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.Written from Rome to Philemon, by Onesimus a seruant.

Odio john's Philemon Chapter 1 comment on 2/20/2014, 4:27am...

Obviously this chapter shows the conduct character committment and conversation of a new creature in Christ as Onesimus that Paul stood for and testified for anywhere he goes That is the beauty of being a christian

 


Bon's Philemon Chapter 1 comment on 12/30/2013, 5:07pm...

This book is teaching us as leader to be ready to pay any price without look where this man come from .i see Apost Paul accept the wickness of Onesmo and train him and trust tha he is good now even the place where he came from Apost P sent a latter with him to expresss the new life of onesmo

 


BSP's Philemon Chapter 1 comment about verse 18 on 11/05/2013, 4:20pm...

Paul showed such a self-sacrificing spirit here. He was willing to take the blame for Philemon's slave Onesimus. Even though Onesimus was the one in the wrong, Paul loved him so much that he was willing to pay for what he had done.

 


Taiwo Olutimilehin's Philemon Chapter 1 comment about verse 6 on 9/25/2013, 1:04am...

Our faith is consistently effective and effectual when we understand, know, and subconsciously and always ACKNOWLEDGE all the GOOD the substitutionary death of Christ has credited to us .

 


Nancy's Philemon Chapter 1 comment on 5/21/2013, 4:08am...

this book have greate lessons:
1.christian love-that we should love others as we love ourselfs
2.true reconciliation that christions should have as we saw how Paul did it between Philemon and Ounesimus Philemon end up receiving Onesimus as bother in the Lord not slave.
3.true sacrifice Paul willing to pay all expenses Philemon incuredbecause of Ounesimus.
4.we see humility that Philemon have of accepting the forgiveness from paul for Ounesimus.
All this shows us that indeed the precence of Christ drastically changes every relationship in life.

 


Timothy Sims's Philemon Chapter 1 comment on 2/01/2013, 4:13pm...

The theme of this letter reminds me of another passage in the scriptures... "And the second is likened unto it... love thy neighbor as thyself!" It's so good to see how the scriptures reaffirm one another. So thankful for God's Word and for His Holy Spirit, which reveals, leads, and guides.

 


Timothy Wayne George's Philemon Chapter 1 comment about verse 21 on 11/16/2012, 7:56pm...

Onesimus, a slave, runs away according to the providence of God, so that he could meet the Apostle Paul in prison. Thus he is converted to Christ, and becomes a brother in Christ. Paul is sure now that Philemon will treat Onesimus like a brother, and do more than is required of him. This speaks of the brotherly love that Philemon has for all the saints, and we should emulate that love. God commended His love for us, in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us. Letís Love one another, just as God has loved us.

 


Nancy pierrre's Philemon Chapter 1 comment on 11/16/2012, 7:26am...

In doing further research you will find Onesimus was a slave that fled his master, and later was caught and put in prison. Remember Paul was a prisoner. While on his Voyage he was still preaching and teaching the Gospel and winning souls to Christ. I believe as Paul ministered to Onesimus, Onesimus became a believer and Paul saw that he was true in his belief and drew Onesimus into him as a close friend, which later made him the bond servant that Paul speaks of. Remember Paul mentioned that Onesimus was first Unprofitable to Timothy, Philemon etc. But now he would be profitable and that he will no longer be a servant but above servants...God will pick you up from your lowest and will raise you up to a high place in him but you must know how to accept the elevation and work in your assignment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
