Philemon 15-16 English Standard Version (ESV)

15 For this perhaps is why he was parted from you for a while, that you might have him back forever, 16 no longer as a bondservant[a] but more than a bondservant, as a beloved brother—especially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord.

Philemon 15-16 New International Version (NIV)

15 Perhaps the reason he was separated from you for a little while was that you might have him back forever— 16 no longer as a slave, but better than a slave, as a dear brother. He is very dear to me but even dearer to you, both as a fellow man and as a brother in the Lord.
