Philemon 3-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Grace to you and peace[a] from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving. [b]I give thanks to my God always, remembering you in my prayers, as I hear of the love and the faith you have in the Lord Jesus and for all the holy ones,[c]


  1. 3 Grace…and peace: for this greeting, which may be a combination of Greek and Aramaic epistolary formulae, see note on Rom 1:1–7.
  2. 4 In my prayers: literally, “at the time of my prayers.”
  3. 5 Holy ones: a common term for members of the Christian community (so also Phlm 7).
