||Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,

||And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, 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, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

||Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
||Lurg clashtyn ve aym jeh dty chredjue ayns y Chiarn Yeesey, as jeh dty ghraih da ooilley ny nooghyn;
||That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
||Dy vod yn ayrn t'ayd's mârin 'sy chredjue cadjin ve breeoil, gys goaill-rish dy chooilley nhee mie, ta nyn mast'eu ayns Creest Yeesey.
||For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
||Son ta boggey as gerjagh mooar ain ayns dty ghraih, er-yn-oyr dy vel yeearreeyn ny nooghyn femoil er nyn ooraghey liort's, vraar.
||Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
||Ga dy voddin er-y-fa shen goaill y daanys shen orrym ayns Creest, dy dty harey gys shen ta cooie dy ve jeant;
||Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
||Ny-yeih er graih ainjys [creestee] ta mee goaill myr reih dy yannoo aghin hood's, mish Paul ta my henn ghooinney, as nish myrgeddin pryssoonagh Yeesey Creest.
||I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
||Ta mee jannoo aghin hood ayns lieh my vac Onesimus, ta mee er gheddyn ayns y chredjue tra va mee ayns my gheulaghyn:
||Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
||Va ayns traa dy row neu-vondeishagh dhyt's, agh nish vondeishagh dhyt's as dooys:
||Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
||Eshyn ta mee er choyrt hoods reesht: gow uss rishyn er-y-fa shen myr rish my chree hene.
||Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
||Eshyn veign er reayll mârym, ayns yn ynnyd ayd's dy voddagh eh ve shirveishagh dou ayns geulaghyn y tushtal.
||But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
||Agh noi dt'aigney cha jinnin nhee erbee: nagh beagh dty aigney-mie myr eginit, agh dy arryltagh.
||For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
||Son foddee dy daag eh oo son traa giare, dy voddagh oo eh y reayll mayrt choud as s'bio eh;
||Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
||Cha nee nish my, sharvaant, agh erskyn sharvaant, braar ennoil, dooys er-heh agh foddey smoo dhyt's, chammah ayns yn eill as ayns y Chiarn?
||If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.

||Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
