1 Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,

2 And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house: (Phil. 1:2)

3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Phil. 1:3)

4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers, (Phil. 1:4)

5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; (Phil. 1:5)

6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 1:6)

7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother. (Phil. 1:7)

8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient, (Phil. 1:8)

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. (Phil. 1:9)

10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds: (Phil. 1:10)

11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me: (Phil. 1:11)

12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels: (Phil. 1:12)

13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel: (Phil. 1:13)

14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. (Phil. 1:14)

15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever; (Phil. 1:15)

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? (Phil. 1:16)

17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. (Phil. 1:17)

18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; (Phil. 1:18)

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. (Phil. 1:19)

20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord. (Phil. 1:20)

21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say. (Phil. 1:21)

22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you. (Phil. 1:22)

23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus; (Phil. 1:23)

24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers. (Phil. 1:24)

25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen. (Phil. 1:25)
