|My Bible Studies and Comments|
Phile 1:1 Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
Phile 1:2 And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
Phile 1:3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Phile 1:4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
Phile 1:5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
Phile 1:6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
Phile 1:7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
Phile 1:8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
"ENJOIN": 2004. epitasso, ep-ee-tas'-so; from G1909 and G5021; to arrange upon, i.e. order:--charge, command, injoin.
Phile 1:9 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.
"BESEECH": 3870. parakaleo, par-ak-al-eh'-o; from G3844 and G2564; to call near, i.e. invite, invoke (by imploration, hortation or consolation):--beseech, call for, (be of good) comfort, desire, (give) exhort (-ation), intreat, pray.
Phile 1:10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
Phile 1:11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
Phile 1:12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
Phile 1:13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
Phile 1:14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
Phile 1:15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
"EVER": 166. aionios, ahee-o'-nee-os; from G165; perpetual (also used of past time, or past and future as well):--eternal, for ever, everlasting, world (began).
Phile 1:16 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?
Phile 1:17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
Phile 1:18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;
Phile 1:19 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.
Phile 1:20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
Phile 1:21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
Phile 1:22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
"GIVEN": 5483. charizomai, khar-id'-zom- ahee; mid. from G5485; to grant as a favor, i.e. gratuitously, in kindness, pardon or rescue:--deliver, (frankly) forgive, (freely) give, grant.
Phile 1:23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
Phile 1:24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
Phile 1:25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
Thanks, for allowing me, to share this with you. Remember, to always,study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
