1:1Paul the prysoner of Iesu Christe and brother Timotheus. Vnto Philemon the beloued, & oure healper,
1:2and to the beloued Appia, and to Archyppus our felowe souldyer, & to the congregacyon of thy house.
1:3Grace be wyth you and peace from God our father, and from the Lorde Iesus Christ.
1:4I thanke my God, makynge mention alwayes of the in my prayers,
1:5when I heare of thy loue and fayth, which thou hast towarde the Lorde Iesu, and towarde all saynctes:
1:6so that the fellowshyppe that thou haste in the fayth, is frutefull thorowe knowledge of all good thynges, whiche are in you by Iesus Christe.
1:7And we haue greate ioye, and consolation ouer thy loue: For by the (brother) the sainctes hertes are conforted.
1:8Wherfore though I be bolde in Christe to enioyne the, that whiche becommeth the:
1:9yet for loues sake I rather beseche the, thoughe I be as I am euen Paule aged, and now in bondes for Iesu Christes sake.
1:10I beseche the for my sonne Onesimus, whom I begat in my bondes,
1:11whiche in tyme passed was to the vnprofytable both to the, and also to me,
1:12whome I haue sente home agayne. Thou therfore receyue hym, that is to say, myne owne bowels
1:13whome I woulde fayne haue receyued with me, that in thy stede he myght haue ministred vnto me in the bondes of the Gospell.
1:14Neuer thelesse, wythout thy mynde, woulde I do nothynge, that the good whiche spryngeth of the shoulde not be as it were of necessytie, but wyllynglye.
1:15Happelye he therfore departed for a season that thou shouldest receyue hym for euer,
1:16not nowe as a seruaunte, but aboue a seruaunte I meane a brother beloued, specyally to me: but howe muche more vnto the, bothe in the fleshe and also in the Lorde?
1:17Yf thou count me a felowe, receyue hym as my selfe.
1:18Yf he haue hurte the, or oweth the oughte that laye to my charge.
1:19I Paule haue wryten it wt myne owne hande, I wyll recompence it. So that I do not saye, to the, howe that thou owest vnto me euen thyne owne selfe.
1:20Euen so brother, let me enioye the in the Lorde. Comforte my bowelles in the Lord.
1:21Trusting in thyne obedyence, I wrote vnto the, knowing, that thou wylt do more then I saye for.
1:22Moreouer prepare me lodgynge: for I truste thorowe the healpe of your prayers, I shall be geuen vnto you.
1:23There salute the Epaphras my felowe prysoner in christ Iesu.
1:24Marcus, Aristarchus Demas, Lucas, my helpers.
1:25The grace of our Lorde Iesu Christe be with youre spyrytes Amen.

Matthew's Bible 1537

The Matthew Bible, also known as Matthew's Version, was first published in 1537 by John Rogers, under the pseudonym "Thomas Matthew". It combined the New Testament of William Tyndale, and as much of the Old Testament as he had been able to translate before being captured and put to death, with the translations of Myles Coverdale as to the balance of the Old Testament and the Apocrypha, except the Apocryphal Prayer of Manasses. It is thus a vital link in the main sequence of English Bible translations.
