King James Version 1611 - 1769





Philemon 1: 1-25

1  Paul,3972 a prisoner1198 of Jesus2424 Christ,5547 and2532 Timothy5095 our brother,80 unto Philemon5371 our dearly beloved,27 and2532 fellow laborer,4904

2  And2532 to our beloved27 Apphia,682 and2532 Archippus751 our2257 fellow soldier,4961 and2532 to the3588 church1577 in2596 thy4675 house:3624

3  Grace5485 to you,5213 and2532 peace,1515 from575 God2316 our2257 Father3962 and2532 the Lord2962 Jesus2424 Christ.5547

4  I thank2168 my3450 God,2316 making4160 mention3417 of thee4675 always3842 in1909 my3450 prayers,4335

5  Hearing191 of thy4675 love26 and2532 faith,4102 which3739 thou hast2192 toward4314 the3588 Lord2962 Jesus,2424 and2532 toward1519 all3956 saints;40

6  That3704 the3588 communication2842 of thy4675 faith4102 may become1096 effectual1756 by1722 the acknowledging1922 of every3956 good thing18 which3588 is in1722 you5213 in1519 Christ5547 Jesus.2424

7  For1063 we have2192 great4183 joy5485 and2532 consolation3874 in1909 thy4675 love,26 because3754 the3588 bowels4698 of the3588 saints40 are refreshed373 by1223 thee,4675 brother.80

8  Wherefore,1352 though I might be2192 much4183 bold3954 in1722 Christ5547 to enjoin2004 thee4671 that which is convenient,433

9  Yet for love's sake1223 26 I rather3123 beseech3870 thee, being5607 such a one5108 as5613 Paul3972 the aged,4246 and1161 now3570 also2532 a prisoner1198 of Jesus2424 Christ.5547

10  I beseech3870 thee4571 for4012 my1699 son5043 Onesimus,3682 whom3739 I have begotten1080 in1722 my3450 bonds:1199

11  Which3588 in time past4218 was to thee4671 unprofitable,890 but1161 now3570 profitable2173 to thee4671 and2532 to me:1698

12  Whom3739 I have sent again:375 thou4771 therefore1161 receive4355 him,846 that is,5123 mine own1699 bowels:4698

13  Whom3739 I1473 would1014 have retained2722 with4314 me,1683 that2443 in thy stead5228 4675 he might have ministered unto1247 me3427 in1722 the3588 bonds1199 of the3588 gospel:2098

14  But1161 without5565 thy4674 mind1106 would2309 I do4160 nothing;3762 that2443 thy4675 benefit18 should not3361 be5600 as it were5613 of2596 necessity,318 but235 willingly.2596 1595

15  For1063 perhaps5029 he therefore1223 5124 departed5563 for4314 a season,5610 that2443 thou shouldest receive568 him846 forever;166

16  Not now3765 as5613 a servant,1401 but235 above5228 a servant,1401 a brother80 beloved,27 especially3122 to me,1698 but1161 how much4214 more3123 unto thee,4671 both2532 in1722 the flesh4561 and2532 in1722 the Lord?2962

17  If1487 thou count2192 me1691 therefore3767 a partner,2844 receive4355 him846 as5613 myself.1691

18  1161 If1487 he hath wronged91 thee,4571 or2228 oweth3784 thee aught,5100 put that on mine account;1677 5124 1698

19  I1473 Paul3972 have written1125 it with mine own1699 hand,5495 I1473 will repay661 it: albeit2443 I do not3361 say3004 to thee4671 how3754 thou owest4359 unto me3427 even2532 thine own self4572 besides.

20  Yea,3483 brother,80 let me1473 have joy3685 of thee4675 in1722 the Lord:2962 refresh373 my3450 bowels4698 in1722 the Lord.2962

21  Having confidence3982 in thy4675 obedience5218 I wrote1125 unto thee,4671 knowing1492 that3754 thou wilt also2532 do4160 more than5228 3739 I say.3004

22  But1161 withal260 prepare2090 me3427 also2532 a lodging:3578 for1063 I trust1679 that3754 through1223 your5216 prayers4335 I shall be given5483 unto you.5213

23  There salute782 thee4571 Epaphras,1889 my3450 fellow prisoner4869 in1722 Christ5547 Jesus;2424

24  Mark,3138 Aristarchus,708 Demas,1214 Luke,3065 my3450 fellow laborers.4904

25  The3588 grace5485 of our2257 Lord2962 Jesus2424 Christ5547 be with3326 your5216 spirit.4151 Amen.281


À Christ seul soit la Gloire
