Philemon 15-17 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 For peradventure therefore he departed from thee for a time, that thou shouldest receive him without end [that thou shouldest receive him into without end];

16 now not as a servant, but for a servant [but more than a servant] a most dear brother, most to me; and how much more to thee, both in [the] flesh and in the Lord?

17 Therefore if thou hast me a fellow, receive him as me;

Philemon 15-17 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

15 Perhaps he therefore departed for a season so that you would receive him forever, 16 not now as a servant, but above a servant; I mean a brother beloved, especially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh and also in the Lord. 17 If you count me a fellow, receive him as myself.

15 It may be that he therefore [a]departed for [b]a season, that thou shouldest receive him forever,

17 If therefore thou count our things common, receive him as myself.
