Philemon 1
New Creation Bible for Muslims
1Paul, a prisoner of [Prophet] Isa al-Masih [pbuh], and Timothy our brother, to Philemon our beloved and fellow-worker, 2and to Apphia our sister, and to Archippus our fellow-soldier, and to the New Creation Masjid in thy house: 3Grace to you and peace from Elokim our Father and HaAdon [Prophet] Isa al-Masih [pbuh].

4I thank my Elokim always, making mention of thee in my prayers, 5hearing of thy love, and of the faith which thou hast toward HaAdon [Prophet] Isa [al-Masih pbuh], and toward all the saints; 6that the fellowship of thy faith may become effectual, in the knowledge of every good thing which is in you, unto al-Masih. 7For I had much joy and comfort in thy love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through thee, brother.

8Wherefore, though I have all boldness in al-Masih to enjoin thee that which is befitting, 9yet for love’s sake I rather beseech, being such a one as Paul the aged, and now a prisoner also of [Prophet] Isa al-Masih [pbuh]:

10I beseech thee for my child, whom I have begotten in my bonds, Onesimus, 11who once was unprofitable to thee, but now is profitable to thee and to me: 12whom I have sent back to thee in his own person, that is, my very heart: 13whom I would fain have kept with me, that in thy behalf he might minister unto me in the bonds of the Holy Injil: 14but without thy mind I would do nothing; that thy goodness should not be as of necessity, but of free will. 15For perhaps he was therefore parted from thee for a season, that thou shouldest have him for ever; 16no longer as a servant, but more than a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much rather to thee, both in the flesh and in HaAdon.

17If then thou countest me a partner, receive him as myself. 18But if he hath wronged thee at all, or oweth thee aught, put that to mine account; 19I Paul write it with mine own hand, I will repay it: that I say not unto thee that thou owest to me even thine own self besides. 20Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in HaAdon: refresh my heart in al-Masih.

21Having confidence in thine obedience I write unto thee, knowing that thou wilt do even beyond what I say.

22But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I hope that through your prayers I shall be granted unto you.

23Epaphras, my fellow-prisoner in [Prophet] Isa al-Masih [pbuh], saluteth thee; 24and so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas [T.N. See warning of 2 Timothy 4:10, for Demas fell, though he was in the company here of three authors of Scripture, Mark, Luke, and Paul. Therefore it is unwise to boast of great teachers and great men of God you have been associated with, since such association had no impact on the treacherous, backsldden heart of Demas. See the Drama on Youtube, The Rabbi From Tarsus.], Luke, my fellow-workers.

25The grace of our Lord [Prophet] Isa al-Masih [pbuh] be with your spirit. Amen.
