to Apphia our sister, and to Archippus our fellow-soldier, and to the church in thy house : "Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God always, making mention of thee in 5 my prayers, "hearing of 3 thy love, and of the faith which

thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all the (6 saints; "that the fellowship of thy faith may become

effectual, in the knowledge of every good thing which is in you, unto Christ. "For I had much joy and com. fort in thy love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through thee, brother.

Wherefore, though I have all boldness in Christ to en() join thee that which is befitting, 'yet for love's sake I

rather beseech, being such a one as Paul ® the aged, and 10) now a prisoner also of Christ Jesus: 'I beseech thee for

my child, whom I have begotten in my bonds, Onesimus,

hath been made a little lower than the angels, even Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and

honour, that by the grace of God he should taste death 10 for every man. "For it became him, for whom are all

things, and through whom are all things, 4 in bringing

many sons unto glory, to make the 5 author of their salva11 tion perfect through sufferings. "For both he that sancti
