Chapter 1
1 Paul, a prisoner of Anointed Jesus, and Timothy the brother, to Philemon our beloved and fellow worker, 2 and to Apphia the sister, and to Archippus our fellow warrior, and to the called out company down your house: 3 grace to you, and peace, from Placer our Father, and Master Jesus Anointed. 4 I am thanking my Placer always, making reminder of you on my prayers, 5 hearing of your love and belief which you are having toward the Master Jesus and all the holy ones, 6 which is how the participation of your belief may become operative, in recognition of every good thing which is in us into Anointed. 7 For I have had much joy and consolation on your love, it being that the bowels of the holy ones have been relaxed through you, brother. 8 Wherefore, having much boldness in Anointed, to be enjoining to you the proper thing, 9 I am entreating rather, because of the love, being such a one as Paul, a senior, yet now also a prisoner of Anointed Jesus: 10 I am entreating you, about my offspring whom I generate in the bonds, Onesimus, 11 the one at a time useless to you, yet now well-useful to you and to me, 12 whom I send up to you, he being this, my bowels, 13 whom I intended to be retaining toward myself, that over you he may be serving with me in the bonds of the good message. 14 Yet I will to do nothing apart from your opinion, that your good may be voluntary, not down necessity. 15 For swiftly because of this, is he separated toward an hour, that you may be having him from me, as a durative one, 16 not still as a slave, but above a slave, a beloved brother, especially to me, yet how much rather to you, both in flesh and in Master. 17 If, then, you are having me as a participant, be taking him as me toward you. 18 Yet if he injures or is owing you anything, be reckoning this to me. 19 I, Paul, write with my own hand: I shall be refunding it (lest I be saying to you, that you also are owing yourself to me). 20 Yes, brother, may I be profiting from you in Master? Relax my bowels in Anointed. 21 I write, having confidence in your obedience, having perceived that you shall be doing above what I am saying. 22 Yet simultaneously also, be making lodging ready to me. For I am expecting that through your prayers I shall be graced to you. 23 Greeting you is Epaphras, my fellow captive in Anointed Jesus, 24 also Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow workers. 25 The grace of our Master Jesus Anointed, is with your spirit.
