    1 Paul rejoices to hear of the faith and love of Philemon, whom he desires to forgive his servant Onesimus, and lovingly to receive him again. VERSE 1 - A. D. 64. A. M. 4068. - a prisoner. * :9 - See on * Eph 3:1; 4:1; 6:20 2Ti 1:8 - Timothy. See on * 2Co 1:1 Col 1:1 2Th 1:1 - Philemon. The apostle in this epistle indulges in some fine paronomasais on the proper names. Thus Philemon, [Philemon <5371>,] affectionate, or beloved, is 'our dearly beloved;' Apphia, ([Apphia <682> from appha,] the affectionate address of a brother or sister, according to Suidas,) is 'the beloved sister,' as several MSS., Vulgate, and others correctly read; Archippus, ([Archippos <751>,] the ruler of the horse, for the managing of which heros were anciently famous,) is 'our fellow- soldier;' and Onesimus, ([Onesimos <3682>,] useful or profitable,) once unprofitable, is now profitable. - and fellow laborer. * :24 1Co 3:9 Php 2:25; 4:3 Col 4:11 1Th 3:2 VERSE 2 - Archippus. * Col 4:17 - our fellow-soldier. * Php 2:25 2Ti 2:3,4 - the church. * Ro 16:5 1Co 16:19 Col 4:15 VERSE 3 - See on * Ro 1:7 2Co 13:14 Eph 1:2 VERSE 4 * Ro 1:8 Eph 1:16 Php 1:3 Col 1:3 1Th 1:2 2Th 1:3 2Ti 1:3 VERSE 5 - Hearing. * Ga 5:6 Eph 1:15 Col 1:4 - toward the Lord. * :7 Ps 16:3 Ac 9:39-41 Ro 12:13; 15:25,26 1Co 16:1 1Jo 3:23; 5:1,2 VERSE 6 - the communication. * 2Co 9:12-14 Php 1:9-11 Tit 3:14 Heb 6:10 Jas 2:14,17 - the acknowledging. * Mt 5:16 1Co 14:25 Php 4:8 1Pe 1:5-8; 2:12; 3:1,16 - in you. * 2Pe 1:8 VERSE 7 - great joy. * 1Th 1:3; 2:13,19; 3:9 2Jo 1:4 3Jo 1:3-6 - the bowels. * :20 2Co 7:13 2Ti 1:16 VERSE 8 - bold. * 2Co 3:12; 10:1,2; 11:21 1Th 2:2,6 - enjoin. * 2Co 10:8 VERSE 9 - love's sake. * Ro 12:1 2Co 5:20; 6:1 Eph 4:1 Heb 13:19 1Pe 2:11 - Paul. * Ps 71:9,18 Pr 16:31 Isa 46:4 - prisoner. * :1 Eph 3:1; 4:1 VERSE 10 - my son. * 2Sa 9:1-7; 18:5; 19:37,38 Mr 9:17 1Ti 1:2 Tit 1:4 - Onesimus. * Col 4:9 - whom. * 1Co 4:15 Ga 4:19 VERSE 11 - unprofitable. * Job 30:1,2 Mt 25:30 Lu 17:10 Ro 3:12 1Pe 2:10 - profitable. * Lu 15:24,32 2Ti 4:11 VERSE 12 - thou. * Mt 6:14,15; 18:21-35 Mr 11:25 Eph 4:32 - mine. * De 13:6 2Sa 16:11 Jer 31:20 Lu 15:20 VERSE 13 - in thy stead. * 1Co 16:17 Php 2:30 - the bonds. * :1 Eph 3:1; 4:1 VERSE 14 - without. * :8,9 2Co 1:24 1Pe 5:3 - thy benefit. * 1Ch 29:17 Ps 110:3 1Co 9:7,17 2Co 8:12; 9:5,7 1Pe 5:2 VERSE 15 * Ge 45:5-8; 50:20 Ps 76:10 Isa 20:6 Ac 4:28 VERSE 16 - a brother. * Mt 23:8 Ac 9:17 Ga 4:28,29 1Ti 6:2 Heb 3:1 1Pe 1:22,23 1Jo 5:1 - both in. * Eph 6:5-7 Col 3:22 VERSE 17 - thou count. * Ac 16:15 2Co 8:23 Eph 3:6 Php 1:7 1Ti 6:2 Heb 3:1,14 Jas 5 2:5 * 1Pe 5:1 1Jo 1:3 - receive. * :10,12 Mt 10:40; 12:48-50; 18:5; 25:40 VERSE 18 - put that. * Isa 53:4-7 *Heb: VERSE 19 - I Paul. * 1Co 16:21,22 Ga 5:2; 6:11 - how thou. * 1Co 4:15; 9:1,2 2Co 3:2 1Ti 1:2 Tit 1:4 Jas 19 5:19,20 VERSE 20 - let me. * 2Co 2:2; 7:4-7,13 Php 2:2; 4:1 1Th 2:19,20; 3:7-9 Heb 13:17 3Jo 1:4 - refresh. * :7,12 Php 1:8; 2:1 1Jo 3:17 VERSE 21 * 2Co 2:3; 7:16; 8:22 Ga 5:10 2Th 3:4 VERSE 22 - prepare. * Ac 28:23 - for I trust. * Ro 15:24 Php 1:25,26; 2:24 Heb 13:23 2Jo 1:12 3Jo 1:14 - through. * Ro 15:30-32 2Co 1:11 Php 1:19 Jas 16 5:16 VERSE 23 - Epaphras. * Col 1:7; 4:12 - my fellow-prisoner. * Ro 16:7 Col 4:10 VERSE 24 - Marcus. * Ac 12:12,25; 13:13; 15:37-39 Col 4:10 2Ti 4:11 - Aristarchus. * Ac 19:29; 27:2 - Demas. * Col 4:14 2Ti 4:10 - Lucas. * 2Ti 4:11 - my fellow-laborers. * :1,2 2Co 8:23 Php 2:25; 4:3 3Jo 1:8 VERSE 25 - grace.

Col 4:9,17) who had been converted by the ministry of Paul, (ver. 19,) probably during his abode at Ephesus, (Ac. 10 19:10) Onesimus, a slave of Philemon, having, as it is generally thought, been guilty of some dishonesty, fled from his master, and came to Rome, where the apostle was at that time under confinement the first time, as appears by his expectation of being shortly released, (ver. 22,) about A. D. 62. Having by some means attended the preaching of the apostle, 'in his own hired house,' (Ac. 16 28:16,23) it pleased God to bless it to his conversion. After he had given satisfactory evidence of a real change, and manifested an excellent and amiable disposition, which greatly endeared him to Paul, he was sent back to his master by the apostle, who wrote this epistle to reconcile Philemon to his once unfaithful servant.
