“For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:7 The saints - To whom Philemon's house was open, #Phm 2|.
Phm 1:7 We have much joy and consolation in thy love. Alluding to the time when news came to him of the state of the church at Colosse and of Philemon's active Christian life. The news was brought, no doubt, by Epaphras (Col 1:7).
