CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:11 Now profitable - None should be expected to be a good servant before he is a good man. He manifestly alludes to his name, Onesimus, which signifies profitable.
Now throw this useless servant into outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
I appeal to you to show kindness to my child, Onesimus. I became his father in the faith while here in prison.
I am sending him back to you, and with him comes my own heart.
