“Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,”
King James Version (KJV)
1:8 I might be bold in Christ - Through the authority he hath given me.
Phm 1:8 Wherefore. After this introduction Paul states the purpose of the letter. Though I might be very bold in Christ. As an apostle, and as the one who gave Philemon the gospel, he had the right to enjoin thee that which is convenient. To command what is befitting.
