ContextPaul's Appeal for Onesimus
8Why, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin you that which is convenient, 9Yet for love's sake I rather beseech you, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ. 10I beseech you for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds: 11Which in time past was to you unprofitable, but now profitable to you and to me: 12Whom I have sent again: you therefore receive him, that is, my own bowels: 13Whom I would have retained with me, that in your stead he might have ministered to me in the bonds of the gospel: 14But without your mind would I do nothing; that your benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. 15For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that you should receive him for ever; 16Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh, and in the Lord? 17If you count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. 18If he has wronged you, or owes you ought, put that on my account; 19I Paul have written it with my own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to you how you owe to me even your own self besides. 20Yes, brother, let me have joy of you in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord. 21Having confidence in your obedience I wrote to you, knowing that you will also do more than I say. 22But with prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given to you.
