Philem. 12   I am sending him back. You therefore receive him, that is, my own heart,  13 whom I wished to keep with me, that on your behalf he might minister to me in my chains for the gospel.  14 But without your consent I wanted to do nothing, that your good deed might not be by compulsion, as it were, but voluntary.

Philem. 15   For perhaps he departed for a while for this purpose, that you might receive him forever,  16 no longer as a slave but more than a slave—a beloved brother, especially to me but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord.

Philem. 20 Yes, brother, let me have joy from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in the Lord.

Philem. 21   Having confidence in your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I say.  22 But, meanwhile, also prepare a guest room for me, for I trust that through your prayers I shall be granted to you.

Philem. 23   Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, greets you,  24 as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow laborers.

Philem. 25   The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
