And I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at length ye flourished again in caring for me, for which also ye were caring, and lacked opportunity;
not that in respect of want I say [it], for I did learn in the things in which I am -- to be content;
I have known both to be abased, and I have known to abound; in everything and in all things I have been initiated, both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in want.
For all things I have strength, in Christ's strengthening me;
but ye did well, having communicated with my tribulation;
and ye have known, even ye Philippians, that in the beginning of the good news when I went forth from Macedonia, no assembly did communicate with me in regard to giving and receiving except ye only;
because also in Thessalonica, both once and again to my need ye sent;
not that I seek after the gift, but I seek after the fruit that is overflowing to your account;
and I have all things, and abound; I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things from you -- an odour of a sweet smell -- a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God:
and my God shall supply all your need, according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus;
and to God, even our Father, [is] the glory -- to the ages of the ages. Amen.
