Philemon Outline
Philemon 1:1 Hebrews 2:18

1 Paul, a aprisoner of Christ Jesus, and bTimothy the brother, to Philemon our beloved and cfellow worker

2 And to 1Apphia the asister and to 1bArchippus our cfellow soldier and to the 2dchurch, which is in your house:

3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


4 I athank my God always, making bmention of you in my prayers,

5 Hearing of your 1love and the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and to all the saints,

6 That the fellowship of your faith may become effective in the 1full aknowledge of 2every good thing which is in 3you 4for Christ.

7 1For I had much ajoy and bencouragement over your love, because the 2cinward parts of the saints have been 3drefreshed through you, ebrother.

8 Therefore though I have much aboldness in Christ to bcharge you what is cfitting,

9 Because of love I rather aentreat, being such a one as Paul 1the aged and now also a 2bprisoner of Christ Jesus.

10 I entreat you concerning my achild, whom I have 1bbegotten in my cbonds, 2dOnesimus,

11 Who formerly was 1useless to you but now is 2useful both to you and to me.

12 Him I have sent back to you -- him, that is, my 1very heart --

13 Whom I intended to keep with myself that on your behalf he might minister to me in the abonds of the gospel.

14 But 1without your mind I did not want to do anything, that your goodness would anot be as of necessity, but bvoluntary.

15 1For 2perhaps for this reason he was separated from you for but an hour, that you might 3fully have him forever,

16 1No longer as a aslave, but 2above a slave, a 3beloved bbrother, especially to me, but how much more to you, 4both cin the flesh and in the Lord.


17 If then 1you hold me as a 2apartner, receive him as myself.

18 And if he has 1wronged you in anything or owes anything, charge that to 2my account.

19 I, Paul, have written with my aown hand: I will 1repay; not to say to you that you owe me even 2your own self besides.

20 Yes, abrother, may I have 1profit from you in the Lord; 2brefresh my 3inward parts in Christ.

21 Having aconfidence in your obedience, I have written to you, knowing that you will do even beyond the things that I say.

22 And at the same time also prepare me a alodging, for I 1hope that through your bprayers I will be 2graciously cgiven to you.


23 1aEpaphras, my bfellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, greets you;

24 As do aMark, bAristarchus, cDemas, dLuke, my efellow workers.

25 The 1agrace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your 2bspirit.


1 1God, having aspoken of old in 2many portions and in many ways to the fathers in the prophets,

2 Has at the 1last of these days spoken to us in the 2aSon, 3whom He appointed 4bHeir of all things, cthrough whom also He made the 5duniverse;

3 Who, being the 1effulgence of His glory and the aimpress of His bsubstance and upholding and bearing all things by the 2word of His power, having made 3purification of sins, 4csat down on the right hand of the 5dMajesty on 6high;


4 Having become as much better than the angels as to have inherited a 1more distinguished name than they.

5 For to which of the angels has He ever said, a"You are My Son; 1this day have I begotten You''? And again, b"I will be a Father to Him, and He will be a Son to Me''?

6 And when He brings again the 1aFirstborn into the inhabited earth, He says, b"And let all the angels of God worship Him.''

7 And of the angels He says, a"Who makes His angels 1winds and His ministers a flame of fire'';

8 But of the Son, a"Your bthrone, 1O God, is forever and ever, and the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your ckingdom.

9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, 1Your God, has aanointed You with the oil of exultant joy above Your 2bpartners'';

10 And, a"You in the beginning, 1Lord, laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of Your hands;

11 They will perish, but You remain perpetually; and they all will become aold like a bgarment,

12 And like a mantle You will roll them up; like a garment they will also be changed; but You are the asame, and Your years will not fail.''

13 But to which of the angels has He ever said, a"Sit at My right hand 1until I set Your enemies as a bfootstool for Your feet''?

14 Are they not all aministering spirits, sent forth for service for the sake of 1those who are to inherit salvation?


CHAPTER 2

1 1Therefore we ought to give heed more abundantly to the things which have been heard lest perhaps we 2drift away.

2 For if the word spoken through aangels proved firm and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense,

3 How shall we 1aescape if we have neglected so great a 2bsalvation, which, having had its beginning in being spoken by the Lord, has been confirmed to us by those who heard,

4 God bearing awitness with them both by signs and wonders and by various works of power and by 1distributions of the Holy Spirit according to His will?


5 For it was not to angels that He subjected the coming 1inhabited earth, concerning which we speak.

6 But one has solemnly testified somewhere, saying, 1a"What is man, that You bring him to mind? Or the son of man, that You care for him?

7 You have made Him 1a little inferior to the angels; You have crowned Him with glory and honor and have set Him aover the works of Your hands;

8 You have asubjected all things under His feet.'' For in subjecting all things to Him, He left nothing unsubject to Him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to Him,

9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little 1inferior to the angels because of the suffering of adeath, bcrowned with 2cglory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death on behalf of 3deverything.

10 For it was fitting for 1Him, afor whom are all things and through whom are all things, in leading 2bmany sons into 3cglory, to make the 4dAuthor of their esalvation 5fperfect through sufferings.

11 For both 1He who asanctifies and those who are being bsanctified are all 2of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call them cbrothers,

12 Saying, a"I will 1declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the 2church 3I will sing hymns of praise to You.''

13 And again, a"I will trust in Him.'' And again, b"Behold, I and the children whom God has given to Me.''

14 Since therefore the children have shared in ablood and flesh, He also Himself in like manner bpartook of the same, that through cdeath He might 1ddestroy him who has the might of edeath, that is, the fdevil,

15 And might 1release those who because of the fear of death through all their life were held in slavery.

16 For assuredly it is not to angels that He 1gives help, but He 1gives help to the seed of Abraham.

17 Hence He should have been 1made alike His brothers in all things that He might become a merciful and faithful 2bHigh Priest in the 3things cpertaining to God, to make 4dpropitiation for the sins of the people.

18 For being atempted in that which He Himself has suffered, He is able to help those who are being tempted.
