Philemon 8
Therefore, though I might be bold enough in Christ to enjoin thee to do that which is befitting,
Wherefore, though I have all boldness in Christ to enjoin thee that which is befitting,
Therefore [on the basis of these facts], though I have enough confidence in Christ to order you to do what is appropriate,
Therefore, though I have abundant boldness in Christ to charge you to do what is fitting and required and your duty to do,
Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
Therefore, though I have enough confidence in Christ to command you to do the right thing,
Therefore, I would not hesitate, in union with the Messiah, to direct you to do the thing you ought to do.
Christ gives me the courage to tell you what to do.
Wherefore having much boldness in Christ to enjoin thee what is fitting,
Therefore, [although] having much boldness in Christ to be commanding you to do the fitting thing,
Wherefore though I have much confidence in Christ Jesus, to command thee that which is to the purpose:
There is something that you should do. And because of the authority I have in Christ, I feel free to command you to do it.
Accordingly, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do what is required,
Accordingly, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do what is required,
So, in Christ, I could be bold and order you to do what is ·right [required; proper; your duty].
Wherefore, though I be very bold in Christ to command thee that which is convenient,
Christ makes me bold enough to order you to do the right thing.
For this reason I could be bold enough, as your brother in Christ, to order you to do what should be done.
For this reason, although I have great boldness in Christ to command you to do what is right,
There is something that you should do. And because of your love in Christ, I feel free to order you to do it.
For this reason, although in the Messiah I have complete freedom to order you to do what is proper,
And although I could rely on my authority in Christ and dare to order you to do what I consider right, I am not doing that. No, I am appealing to that love of yours, a simple personal appeal from Paul the old man, in prison for Jesus Christ’s sake. I am appealing for my child. Yes I have become a father though I have been under lock and key, and the child’s name is—Onesimus! Oh, I know you have found him pretty useless in the past but he is going to be useful now, to both of us.
¶ Therefore, though I might be very bold in Christ to command thee that which is expedient,
Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
Therefore, although I have great confidence in Christ to order you to do what is proper,
Now I want to ask a favor of you. I could demand it of you in the name of Christ because it is the right thing for you to do, but I love you and prefer just to ask you—I, Paul, an old man now, here in jail for the sake of Jesus Christ.
In line with all this I have a favor to ask of you. As Christ’s ambassador and now a prisoner for him, I wouldn’t hesitate to command this if I thought it necessary, but I’d rather make it a personal request.
Therefore, though I might be very bold in Christ to command you to do that which is proper,
So, although in Christ I have sufficient freedom to order you to do what you ought,
Christ makes me bold enough to order you to do the right thing.
Therefore, although I have the full right in Christ to order you to do what is proper,
Therefore, though I have enough confidence in Christ to order you to do what is proper,
So, in Christ, I could be bold and order you to do what is right.
So, although I have quite a lot of confidence in Christ and could command you to do what is proper,
Because of the authority Christ has given me, I could be bold. I could order you to do what you should do anyway.
Therefore, although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do,
Therefore, although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do,
Therefore, though I might be very bold in Christ to command you what is fitting,
So now, through Christ, I am free to tell you what you must do.
That is why I am boldly asking a favor of you. I could demand it in the name of Christ because it is the right thing for you to do.
For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty,
For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty,
For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty,
For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty,
Because of all this I could be very bold in the King, and order you to do the right thing.
Therefore, though I have much boldness in Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach that I could in fact order you to do your chovah musarit (moral duty) of avodas hakodesh (holy service),
Accordingly, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do what is required,
Accordingly, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do what is required,
Therefore, though I have plenty of boldness in Messiah to order you to do what’s right,
Although I am bold enough in the Anointed, our Liberating King, to insist you do the right thing,
Therefore though I have all boldness in Christ to command you that which is appropriate,
Because I am Christ's apostle, I could tell you what you must do.
For which thing I having much trust in Christ Jesus, to command to thee that that pertaineth to profit;
Wherefore, having in Christ much boldness to command thee that which is fit --
