Unchecked Copy BoxPhm 1:6 -

I pray that your participation in the faith may become effective through knowing every good thing that is in us[fn] for the glory of Christ.

I am sending him back to you ​— ​I am sending my very own heart.[fn][fn]

But I didn’t want to do anything without your consent, so that your good deed might not be out of obligation, but of your own free will.

For perhaps this is why he was separated from you for a brief time, so that you might get him back permanently,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhm 1:16 -

So if you consider me a partner, welcome him as you would me.

And if he has wronged you in any way, or owes you anything, charge that to my account.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhm 1:19 -

I, Paul, write this with my own hand: I will repay it ​— ​not to mention to you that you owe me even your very self.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhm 1:20 -

Yes, brother, may I benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhm 1:21 -

Since I am confident of your obedience, I am writing to you, knowing that you will do even more than I say.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhm 1:22 -

Meanwhile, also prepare a guest room for me, since I hope that through your prayers I will be restored to you.

Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends you greetings, and so do

The grace of the Lord[fn] Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
