Paul Paulos, a prisoner desmios of Christ Christos Jesus Iēsous, and kai Timothy Timotheos our ho brother adelphos, to Philemon Philēmōn · ho our hēmeis dear friend agapētos and kai fellow worker synergos, · kai to Apphia Apphia our ho sister adelphē, · kai to Archippus Archippos · ho our hēmeis fellow soldier systratiōtēs, and kai to the ho church ekklēsia that meets in kata your sy house oikos: Grace charis to you hymeis and kai peace eirēnē from apo God theos our hēmeis Father patēr and kai the Lord kyrios Jesus Iēsous Christ Christos.

I always pantote thank eucharisteō · ho my egō God theos when I plegma remember mneia you sy in epi · ho my egō prayers proseuchē, because I hear akouō of your sy · ho love agapē for eis all pas the ho saints hagios and kai your ho faith pistis in pros the ho Lord kyrios Jesus Iēsous. · kai And I pray that hopōs the ho sharing koinōnia of ho your sy faith pistis may become ginomai effective energēs in en the knowledge epignōsis of every pas good agathos thing that belongs ho to en us hēmeis in eis Christ Christos. For gar I have derived echō much polys joy chara and kai encouragement paraklēsis from epi · ho your sy love agapē, my brother adelphos, because hoti the ho hearts splanchnon of the ho saints hagios have been refreshed anapauō by dia you sy.

So dio, although echō in en Christ Christos I have echō sufficient polys freedom parrēsia to order epitassō you sy to do what ho you ought anēkō, yet for dia · ho love’ s agapē sake I prefer mallon to appeal parakaleō to you— I toioutos, Paul Paulos, an old man presbytēs and de even kai now nyni a prisoner desmios for the sake of Christ Christos Jesus Iēsous 10 I appeal parakaleō to you sy for peri · ho my emos child teknon, Onesimus Onēsimos, whose hos father I became gennaō while en in ho prison desmos. 11 · ho Formerly pote he was of no use achrēstos to you sy, but de now nyni he has become useful euchrēstos both kai to you sy and kai to me egō. 12 I am sending anapempō him hos back to you sy, that houtos is eimi, the one who autos is · ho my own emos heart splanchnon. 13 I egō wanted boulomai to keep katechō him hos with pros me emautou, so that hina he could minister diakoneō to me egō on hyper your sy behalf during en my ho imprisonment desmos for the ho gospel euangelion, 14 but de I did thelō not oudeis want thelō to do poieō anything oudeis without chōris · ho your sos consent gnōmē, so that hina your sy helpfulness agathos might eimi not be eimi by kata compulsion anankē · ho but alla by kata your own free will hekousios. 15 Perhaps tacha he was separated from chōrizō you for pros a while hōra for dia this houtos reason , that hina you might have apechō him autos back apechō forever aiōnios, 16 no longer ouketi as hōs a slave, but alla more than hyper a slave, as a dear agapētos brother adelphos. He is especially malista so to me egō, but de how much posos more mallon to you sy, both kai in en the flesh sarx and kai in en the Lord kyrios.

17 So then oun if ei you regard echō me egō as a partner koinōnos, welcome proslambanō him autos as hōs you would me egō. 18 If ei · de he has wronged adikeō you sy or ē owes opheilō you anything tis, charge that houtos to my egō account ellogeō 19 I egō, Paul Paulos, am writing graphō this with ho my own emos hand cheir I egō will pay it back apotinō. I could hina mē also kai mention legō that hoti you owe prosopheilō me egō your very self seautou! 20 Yes nai, brother adelphos, I egō do wish that I may have some benefit oninēmi from you sy in en the Lord kyrios. Refresh anapauō my egō · ho heart splanchnon in en Christ Christos.
