add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

9 Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

19 I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add
