Darby's Synopsis
   1: Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy [our] brother, to Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellow-laborer,
   2: And to [our] beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellow-soldier, and to the church in thy house:
   3: Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
   4: I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
   5: Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast towards the Lord Jesus, and towards all saints;
   6: That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
   7: For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
   8: Wherefore, though I might be very bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient.
   9: Yet for love's sake I rather beseech [thee], being such one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
   10: I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
   11: Who in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
   12: Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, my own bowels:
   13: Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered to me in the bonds of the gospel:
   14: But without thy mind I would do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
   15: For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldst receive him for ever;
   16: Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more to thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
   17: If thou accountest me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
   18: If he hath wronged thee, or oweth [thee] aught, put that on my account;
   19: I Paul have written [it] with my own hand, I will repay [it]: although I do not say to thee that thou owest to me even thy own self besides.
   20: Yes, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
   21: Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote to thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
   22: But at the same time prepare me also a lodging; for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given to you.
   23: There salute thee Epaphras, my fellow-prisoner in Christ Jesus;
   24: Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellow-laborers.
   25: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with your spirit. Amen.
