Weymouth New Testament in Modern Speech, Philemon

Third Edition 1913

R. F. Weymouth

Book 57 Philemon

001:001 Paul, a prisoner for Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother:
        To Philemon our dearly-loved fellow labourer--

001:002 and to our sister Apphia and our comrade Archippus--
        as well as to the Church in your house.

001:003 May grace be granted to you all, and peace, from God our Father
        and the Lord Jesus Christ.

001:004 I give continual thanks to my God while making mention of you,
        my brother, in my prayers,

001:005 because I hear of your love and of the faith which you
        have towards the Lord Jesus and which you manifest towards
        all God's people;

001:006 praying as I do, that their participation in your faith may
        result in others fully recognizing all the right affection
        that is in us toward Christ.

001:007 For I have found great joy and comfort in your love,
        because the hearts of God's people have been, and are,
        refreshed through you, my brother.

001:008 Therefore, though I might with Christ's authority speak
        very freely and order you to do what is fitting,

001:009 it is for love's sake that--instead of that--although I am
        none other than Paul the aged, and am now also a prisoner
        for Christ Jesus,

001:010 I entreat you on behalf of my own child whose father I have
        become while in my chains--I mean Onesimus.

001:011 Formerly he was useless to you, but now--true to his name--
        he is of great use to you and to me.

001:012 I am sending him back to you, though in so doing I send
        part of myself.

001:013 It was my wish to keep him at my side for him to attend
        to my wants, as your representative, during my imprisonment
        for the Good News.

001:014 Only I wished to do nothing without your consent, so that
        his kind action of yours might not be done under pressure,
        but might be a voluntary one.

001:015 For perhaps it was for this reason he was parted from you for a time,
        that you might receive him back wholly and for ever yours;

001:016 no longer as a slave, but as something better than a slave--
        a brother peculiarly dear to me, and even dearer to you,
        both as a servant and as a fellow Christian.

001:017 If therefore you regard me as a comrade, receive him as if
        he were I myself.

001:018 And if he was ever dishonest or is in your debt, debit me
        with the amount.

001:019 I Paul write this with my own hand--I will pay you in full.
        (I say nothing of the fact that you owe me even your own self.)

001:020 Yes, brother, do me this favour for the Lord's sake.
        Refresh my heart in Christ.

001:021 I write to you in the full confidence that you will meet my wishes,
        for I know you will do even more than I say.

001:022 And at the same time provide accommodation for me; for I hope
        that through your prayers I shall be permitted to come to you.

001:023 Greetings to you, my brother, from Epaphras my fellow prisoner
        for the sake of Christ Jesus;

001:024 and from Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers.

001:025 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with the spirit
        of every one of you.

public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
