Thus Philemon, [Philemon ,] affectionate, or beloved, is "our dearly beloved;" Apphia, ([Apphia from appha,] the affectionate address of a brother or sister, according to Suidas,) is "the beloved sister," as several MSS., Vulgate, and others correctly read; Archippus, ([Archippos ,] the ruler of the horse, for the managing of which heros were anciently famous,) is "our fellow- soldier;" and Onesimus, ([Onesimos ,] useful or profitable,) once unprofitable, is now profitable. and fellow labourer.24; 1Co 3:9; Php 2:25; 4:3; Col 4:11; 1Th 3:2
