Pawulo yeegayiririra Onesimo

8Noolwekyo newaakubadde era, nga nnina obuvumu mu Kristo, nga nandisobodde okukulagira okukola ekyo ky’osaanira okukola, 99 nny 1, 23naye okwagala kwange gy’oli kumpaliriza okukusaba obusabi, nze, Pawulo, kaakano akaddiye, era ali mu kkomera olwa Kristo Yesu; 1010 a 1Ko 4:15 b Bak 4:9nkwegayirira ku bikwata ku mwana wange Onesimo gwe nayamba okukkiriza Mukama waffe nga ndi mu njegere, mu busibe, 11Onesimo oyo, gye buvuddeko ataali wa mugaso gy’oli, naye kaakano nga wa mugaso nnyo gye tuli ffembi, 12gwe naaweereza gy’oli nga n’omutima gwange gujjirako, 13oyo gwe nandyagadde okwesigaliza, ampeereze nga ndi mu busibe olw’enjiri, mu kifo kyo mwe wandibadde onnyambira, 1414 2Ko 9:7; 1Pe 5:2naye ne saagala kukikola nga tonzikirizza. Saagala okole eky’ekisa olwokubanga oteekwa, wabula kikole lwa kweyagalira. 15Kiyinzika okuba nga Onesimo yakwawukanako okumala akaseera, oluvannyuma alyoke abeere naawe ebbanga lyonna, 1616 Mat 23:8; 1Ti 6:2nga takyali muddu buddu, naye ng’asingako awo, ng’afuuse owooluganda omwagalwa ennyo, na ddala gye ndi. Kaakano ajja kubeera wa mugaso nnyo gy’oli mu mubiri ne mu Mukama waffe.

Sijja kukugamba nti olina ebbanja lyange. 2020 nny 7Munnange owooluganda, nkolera ekikolwa kino ekiraga okwagala, omutima gwange guddemu amaanyi mu Kristo. 2121 2Ko 2:3Nkuwandiikidde ebbaluwa eno nga neesigira ddala nga kye nkusaba ojja kukikola n’okusingawo! 2222 a Baf 1:25; 2:24 b 2Ko 1:11Nninayo n’ekirala kye nkusaba; nkusaba ontegekere we ndisula, kubanga nnina essuubi, nga Katonda okusaba kwammwe ajja kukuddamu anzikirize nkomewo gye muli.

King James Version

Philemon 1:1-25

1Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer, 2And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house: 3Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

4I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers, 5Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; 6That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. 7For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother. 8Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient, 9Yet for love’s sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ. 10I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds: 11Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me: 12Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels: 13Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel: 14But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. 15For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever; 16Not 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? 17If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. 18If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; 19I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides. 20Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.

21Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say. 22But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.

23There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus; 24Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers. 25The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
