Philemon 15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 Perhaps this is why he was away from[a] you for a while, that you might have him back forever,


  1. 15 Was away from: literally, “was separated from,” but the same verb means simply “left” in Acts 18:1. It is a euphemism for his running away.
