Philemon 4-7 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

I do thankings to my God, evermore making mind of thee in my prayers,

hearing thy charity and faith, that thou hast in the Lord Jesus, and to all holy men,

that the communing of thy faith be made open, in knowing of all good thing in Christ Jesus.

And I had great joy and comfort in thy charity, for the entrails of holy men rested by thee, brother. [Forsooth I had great joy and comfort in thy charity, for the entrails of holy men rested, or were refreshed, by thee, brother.]

Philemon 4-7 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

I thank my God, making mention always of you in my prayers, when I hear of the love and faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all the saints, so that the fellowship that you have in the faith is fruitful through the knowledge of all good things, which are in you by Jesus Christ. And we have great joy and consolation over your love. For by you, brother, the saints’ hearts are comforted.

  1. Philemon 1:6 By fellowship of faith, he meaneth those duties of charity which are bestowed upon the Saints, and flow forth of an effectual faith.
  2. Philemon 1:6 That by this means all men may perceive how rich you are in Christ, to wit, in faith, charity, and all bountifulness.
  3. Philemon 1:7 Because thou didst so dutifully and cheerfully refresh the Saints, that they conceived inwardly a marvelous joy: for by this word (Bowels) is meant not only the inward feeling of wants and miseries that men have one of another’s state, but also that joy and comfort which entereth into the very bowels, as though the heart were refreshed and comforted.
