“That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:6 I pray that the communication of thy faith may become effectual - That is, that thy faith may be effectually communicated to others, who see and acknowledge thy piety and charity.
Phm 1:6 That the communication of thy faith. Rather, "fellowship", as in the Revised Version. The Greek word is "koinonia", and the prayer is that the fellowship of faith between Philemon and Onesimus may become effectual in showing forth forgiveness, which would of course be comprehended in "every good thing". Here, however, the statement is general.
