Bible: Philemon 1:12-14

1:12 I have sent 1  him (who is my very heart) 2  back to you. 1:13 I wanted to keep him so that he could serve me in your place 3  during 4  my imprisonment for the sake of the gospel. 5  1:14 However, 6  without your consent I did not want to do anything, so that your good deed would not be out of compulsion, but from your own willingness.
