1:1 Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy [our] brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
kai apfia th agaphth kai arcippw tw sustratiwth hmwn kai th kat oikon sou ekklhsia
1:2 And to [our] beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
cariV umin kai eirhnh apo qeou patroV hmwn kai kuriou ihsou cristou
1:3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
akouwn sou thn agaphn kai thn pistin hn eceiV proV ton kurion ihsoun kai eiV pantaV touV agiouV
1:5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
opwV h koinwnia thV pistewV sou energhV genhtai en epignwsei pantoV agaqou tou en umin eiV criston ihsoun
1:6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
carin gar ecomen pollhn kai paraklhsin epi th agaph sou oti ta splagcna twn agiwn anapepautai dia sou adelfe
1:7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

1:8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
dia thn agaphn mallon parakalw toioutoV wn wV pauloV presbuthV nuni de kai desmioV ihsou cristou
1:9 Yet for love's sake I rather beseech [thee], being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
parakalw se peri tou emou teknou on egennhsa en toiV desmoiV mou onhsimon
1:10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
ton pote soi acrhston nuni de soi kai emoi eucrhston
1:11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
on anepemya su de auton toutestin ta ema splagcna proslabou
1:12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
on egw eboulomhn proV emauton katecein ina uper sou diakonh moi en toiV desmoiV tou euaggeliou
1:13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
cwriV de thV shs* gnwmhV ouden hqelhsa poihsai ina mh wV kata anagkhn to agaqon sou h alla kata ekousion
1:14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
taca gar dia touto ecwrisqh proV wran ina aiwnion auton apechV
1:15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
ouketi wV doulon all uper doulon adelfon agaphton malista emoi posw de mallon soi kai en sarki kai en kuriw
1:16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
ei oun eme eceiV koinwnon proslabou auton wV eme
1:17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
ei de ti hdikhsen se h ofeilei touto emoi ellogei
1:18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth [thee] ought, put that on mine account;
egw pauloV egraya th emh ceiri egw apotisw ina mh legw soi oti kai seauton moi prosofeileiV
1:19 I Paul have written [it] with mine own hand, I will repay [it]: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.
nai adelfe egw sou onaimhn en kuriw anapauson mou ta splagcna en kuriw
1:20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
pepoiqwV th upakoh sou egraya soi eidwV oti kai uper o legw poihseiV
1:21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
ama de kai etoimaze moi xenian elpizw gar oti dia twn proseucwn umwn carisqhsomai umin
1:22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

1:23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;

1:24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
