But I rejoiced in the Lordgreatly, that now at last1you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lackedopportunity.
Not that I speakafrom want, for I have learned to be b2content in whatevercircumstances I am.
I knowhow to getalong with humblemeans, and I alsoknowhow to live in prosperity; in any and everycircumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going3hungry, both of havingabundance and 4sufferingneed.
I candoallthingscthrough Him who 5strengthens me.
14Nevertheless, you have donewell to 6share with me in my affliction.
You yourselvesalsoknow, Philippians, that at the d7firstpreaching of the gospel, after I left8Macedonia, nochurch9shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone;
for even in 10Thessalonica you sent a gift morethanonce for my needs.
1711Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the eprofit which increases to your account.
But I havereceivedeverything in full and have an abundance; I am famplysupplied, having received from 12Epaphroditusgwhat you have sent, h13a fragrantaroma, an acceptablesacrifice, well-pleasing to God.
And 14my God will supplyiall your needsaccording to His 15riches in glory in ChristJesus.
20Now to 16our God and Father17be the gloryjforever and ever. Amen.
