Philem. 8   Therefore, though I might be very bold in Christ to command you what is fitting,  9 yet for love’s sake I rather appeal to you—being such a one as Paul, the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ—  10 I appeal to you for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten while in my chains,  11 who once was unprofitable to you, but now is profitable to you and to me.
