Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philemon 1:21

_ _ Having confidence in thy obedience — to my apostolic authority, if I were to “enjoin” it (Philemon 1:8), which I do not, preferring to beseech thee for it as a favor (Philemon 1:9).

_ _ thou will also do more — towards Onesimus: hinting at his possible manumission by Philemon, besides, being kindly received.
