Paul's Letter to Philemon

Filemon 1

1:1 Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, dan Timothy, saudara laki-laki, to Philemon, our beloved fellow laborer,
1:2 and to Apphia, most beloved sister, and to Archippus, our fellow soldier, and to the church which is in your house.
1:3 Kasih karunia dan damai sejahtera, dari Allah, Bapa kita dan dari Tuhan Yesus Kristus.
1:4 I give thanks to my God, always keeping remembrance of you in my prayers,
1:5 (for I am hearing of your charity and faith, which you have in the Lord Jesus and with all the saints)
1:6 so that the participation of your faith may become evident by the recognition of every good work which is in you in Christ Jesus.
1:7 For I have found great joy and consolation in your charity, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you, saudara.
1:8 Karena ini, I have enough confidence in Christ Jesus to command you concerning certain things,
1:9 tapi saya mohon Anda malah, demi amal, karena Anda begitu banyak seperti Paul: seorang tua dan sekarang juga seorang tahanan Yesus Kristus.
1:10 saya mohon padamu, atas nama anak saya, siapa saya harus diperanakkan di rantai saya, Onesimus.
1:11 In times past, he was useless to you, but now he is useful both to me and to you.
1:12 Jadi saya telah mengirim dia kembali kepada Anda. Dan mungkin Anda terima dia seperti hatiku sendiri.
1:13 Saya sendiri ingin mempertahankan dia dengan saya, sehingga ia mungkin melayani saya, atas nama Anda, sementara aku di rantai Injil.
1:14 Tapi aku bersedia melakukan apa-apa tanpa nasihat Anda, agar tidak menggunakan perbuatan baik Anda seolah-olah keluar dari kebutuhan, tetapi hanya rela.
1:15 jadi mungkin, kemudian, ia mundur dari Anda untuk waktu, sehingga Anda mungkin menerima dia lagi untuk selama-lamanya,
1:16 tidak lagi sebagai hamba, tapi, di tempat seorang hamba, seorang saudara yang paling dicintai, terutama untuk saya: tapi berapa banyak sehingga lebih banyak untuk Anda, baik dalam daging dan di dalam Tuhan!
1:17 Oleh karena itu, jika Anda memegang saya untuk menjadi pendamping, menerima dia seperti aku sendiri.
1:18 But if he has harmed you in any way, or if he is in your debt, charge it to me.
1:19 Aku, Paul, have written this with my own hand: I will repay. And I need not tell you, that you are also in debt yourself, to me.
1:20 So it is, saudara. May I delight with you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ.
1:21 I have written to you, trusting in your obedience, knowing, terlalu, that you will do even more than what I say.
1:22 Dan juga, sekaligus, prepare a lodging for me. For I am hoping, through your prayers, to present myself to you.
1:23 Greet Epaphras, my fellow captive in Christ Jesus,
1:24 and Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my helpers.
1:25 Kasih karunia Tuhan kita Yesus Kristus menyertai roh Anda. Amin.
