“I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:19 I will repay it - If thou requirest it. Not to say, that then owest me thyself - It cannot be expressed, how great our obligation is to those who have gained our souls to Christ. Beside - Receiving Onesimus.
Phm 1:19 I Paul have written [it] with mine own hand. If you hold this wrong against him, here is my written bond that I will repay it. Albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides. Here is a reminder that Philemon owed his salvation to Paul, a reminder which would certainly prevent him from putting in a claim against the apostle.
