1:4 I do thankings to my God, evermore making mind of thee in my prayers, I thank my God always making mention of thee in my prayers, I give thanks to my God, making mention always of thee in my prayers, I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
1:5 hearing thy charity and faith, that thou hast in the Lord Jesus, and in to all holy men, when I hear of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the lord Jesus, and toward all saints: (When I hear of thy love & faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, & toward all Saints) Hearing of thy love, and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all Saints:
1:6 that the communing of thy faith be made open, in knowing of all good thing in Christ Jesus. so that the fellowship that thou hast in the faith, is fruitful through knowledge of all good things, which are in you by Jesus Christ. That the fellowship of thy faith may be made fruitful, and that whatsoever good thing is in you through Christ Jesus, may be known. That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing, which is in you in Christ Jesus.
1:7 Forsooth I had great joy and comfort in thy charity, for the entrails of holy men rested by thee, brother. And we have great joy, and consolation over thy love: For by thee brother, the saints’ hearts are comforted. For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because by thee, brother, the Saints’ hearts are comforted. For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the Saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
1:8 For which thing I having much trust in Christ Jesus, to command to thee that that pertaineth to thing; Wherefore though I be bold in Christ to enjoin thee, that which becometh thee: Wherefore, though I be very bold in Christ to command thee that which is convenient, Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient;
1:9 for charity I beseech more, since thou art such as Paul the old, now forsooth and the bound of Jesus Christ. yet for love’s sake I rather beseech thee, though I be as I am, even Paul aged, and now in bonds for Jesus Christ’s sake. Yet for love’s sake I rather beseech thee, though I be as I am, even Paul aged, and even now a prisoner for Jesus Christ. Yet for love’s sake I rather beseech thee, being such a one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
1:10 I beseech thee for my son Onesime, whom I in bonds begat, I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I begat in my bonds, I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds, I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds,
1:11 the which some time was to thee unprofitable, forsooth now profitable and to thee and to me; which in time past was to thee unprofitable: but now profitable both to thee and also to me, Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable both to thee and to me, Which in time past was to thee unprofitable: but now profitable to thee and to me:
1:12 whom I sent again to thee. Forsooth receive thou him as mine entrails; whom I have sent home again. Thou therefore receive him, that is to say mine own bowels, Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is mine own bowels, Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is mine own bowels.
1:13 whom I would withhold with me, that he should serve for thee to me in bonds of the gospel; whom I would fain have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel. Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the Gospel. Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the Gospel.
1:14 forsooth without thy counsel I would not do, that thy good should not be as of need, but willful. Nevertheless, without thy mind, would I do nothing, that that good which springeth of thee should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. But without thy mind would I do nothing, that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. But without thy mind would I do nothing, that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
1:15 Forsooth peradventure therefore he departed from thee at an hour, that thou shouldest receive him into without end; Haply he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever, It may be that he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever, For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever:
1:16 now not as a servant, but for a most dear brother, most to me; forsooth how much more to thee, and in flesh and in the Lord? not now as a servant: but above a servant, I mean a brother beloved, specially to me: but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and also in the lord? Not now as a servant, but above a servant, even as a brother beloved, specially to me: how much more then unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord? 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?
1:17 Therefore if thou hast me a fellow, receive him as me; If thou count me a fellow receive him as myself. If therefore thou count our things common, receive him as myself. If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
1:18 forsooth if he hath any thing annoyed thee, or oweth, write thou this thing to me. If he have hurt thee or oweth thee ought, that lay to my charge. If he hath hurt thee, or oweth thee ought, that put on mine accounts. If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account.
1:19 I Paul wrote with mine hand, I shall yield; that I say not to thee, that and thou owest to me thyself. I Paul have written it with mine own hand. I will recompense it. So that I do not say to thee how that thou owest unto me even thine own self. I Paul have written this with mine own hand: I will recompense it, albeit I do not say to thee, that thou owest unto me even thine own self. 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:
1:20 So, brother, I shall use thee in the Lord; fulfill mine entrails in Christ. Even so brother, let me enjoy thee in the lord. Comfort my bowels in the lord. Yea, brother, let me obtain this pleasure of thee in the Lord: comfort my bowels in the Lord. Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
1:21 I trusting of thine obedience wrote to thee, witting for thou shalt do and over that that I say. Trusting in thine obedience, I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt do more than I say for. Trusting in thine obedience, I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt do even more than I say. Having confidence in thy obedience, I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
1:22 Also forsooth and make ready to me an house; for I hope by your prayers me for to be given to you. Moreover prepare me lodging: for I trust through the help of your prayers, I shall be given unto you. Moreover also prepare me lodging: for I trust through your prayers I shall be given unto you. But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
1:23 Epefras, mine even captive in Christ Jesus, greeteth thee well, There salute thee, Epaphras my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, There salute thee Epaphras my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, There salute thee Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus:
1:24 and Mark, Aristark, Demas, Lucas, mine helpers. Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my helpers. Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas & Luke, my fellow helpers. Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellow labourers.
1:25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with your spirit. Amen. The grace of our lord Jesus Christ be with your spirits, Amen. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, Amen. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
