This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Phm 1:15. Τάχα, perhaps) The apostle speaks thus after the manner of men, as 1Co 1:16. Because the judgments of God are concealed; see Hieron. on this passage.-ἐχωρίσθη, departed) [was separated]. A mild expression.-αἰώνιον, for ever) in this life, Exo 21:6, and in heaven. A very elegant amphibology, quite true in both cases. The whole time of the absence of Onesimus was but a short hour compared with that lengthened duration.-ἀπέχῃς) thou shouldst have him for thyself.
