Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philemon 1:9

_ _ for love’s sake — mine to thee, and (what ought to be) thine to Onesimus. Or, that Christian love of which thou showest so bright an example (Philemon 1:7).

_ _ being such an one — Explain, Being such a one as thou knowest me to be, namely,

_ _ Paul — the founder of so many churches, and an apostle of Christ, and thy father in the faith.

_ _ the aged — a circumstance calculated to secure thy respect for anything I request.

_ _ and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ — the strongest claim I have on thy regard: if for no other reason, at least in consideration of this, through commiseration gratify me.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philemon 1:8-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philemon 1:9

Yet out of love I rather entreat thee — In how handsome a manner does the apostle just hint, and immediately drop, the consideration of his power to command, and tenderly entreat Philemon to hearken to his friend, his aged friend, and now prisoner for Christ! With what endearment, in the next verse, does he call Onesimus his son, before he names his name! And as soon as he had mentioned it, with what fine address does he just touch on his former faults, and instantly pass on to the happy change that was now made upon him! So disposing Philemon to attend to his request, and the motives wherewith he was going to enforce it.
