Paul's Letter to Philemon

Filemoni 1

1:1 Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, ma Timoteo, se uso, 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 Alofa tunoa ma le filemu ia te oe, mai le Atua lo tatou Tama ma mai le Alii o Iesu Keriso.
1:4 Ou te tuuina atu le faafetai i loʻu Atua, 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 Auā ua ou maua le olioli tele ma le faamafanafanaga i lou le alofa mama, aua o le ua faafouina loto o le au paia e outou, tuagane.
1:8 Ona o lenei, Ou te mautinoa lava ia Keriso Iesu e poloaiina ai outou e uiga i nisi o mea,
1:9 ae ou te aioi atu ia te oe nai lo, mo le lelei o le alofa mama, talu ai e matua tele ia te outou e pei o Paulo: se toeaina ma le taimi nei o se pagota foi o Iesu Keriso.
1:10 Ou te aioi atu, e avea ma sui o loʻu atalii, ua ou i ai toatasi i loʻu filifili, Onesemo.
1:11 I taimi ua tuanai, Sa aoga o ia ia te oe, ae o lenei ua ia e aoga uma ia te au ma ia te oe.
1:12 O lea la ua ou toe auina atu o ia ia te oe. Ma e mafai ona outou talia o ia e pei o loʻu lava loto.
1:13 Ou te manao e taofi ia te ia ma aʻu, ina ia atoa auauna mai ia te aʻu, i lou avea ai ma sui, ao ou i ai i le filifili o le Talalelei.
1:14 Ae sa ou naunau e faia se mea e aunoa ma lau fautuaga, ina ia aua nei faaaogaina o lou galuega lelei e faapei ai e le manaomia, ae na o le naunautai.
1:15 lea atonu, lea, sa ia alu ese mai ia te outou mo se taimi, ina ia e mafai ona e toe mauaina o ia mo le faavavau,
1:16 toe o se auauna, ae, i le nofoaga o le a auauna, se uso sili ona pele, aemaise lava ia te aʻu: ae o le tele o mea e sili atu ia te oe, e le gata i le tino ma i le Alii!
1:17 o le mea lea, pe afai e te umia mai ia te au e avea ma se soa, talia o ia e pei ona e manao mai ia te aʻu.
1:18 Ae afai ua ia faatiga ia te oe i so o se auala, po o pe afai o ia o i lau aitalafu, faaee mai ia te au.
1:19 ou, Paul, tusia lenei mea i loʻu lava lima: O le a ou toe totogi. Ma Ou te le taʻu atu, e te ai foi ia te oe lava aitalafu, ia te aʻu.
1:20 O lea e, tuagane. Tau ina ia Ou te fiafia faatasi ma outou i le Alii! Faafouina loʻu loto ia Keriso.
1:21 I have written to you, trusting in your obedience, knowing, foʻi, that you will do even more than what I say.
1:22 ae faapea foi, i sesi taimi, 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, Aritako, Demas, and Luke, my helpers.
1:25 E mafai e le alofa tunoa o lo tatou Alii o Iesu Keriso i lou agaga. amene.
