I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind1 in the Lord.
Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers,2 whose names are in the book of life.3
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!45
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.56
Do not be anxious about anything,6 but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.77
And the peace of God,8 which transcends all understanding,9 will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice.10 And the God of peace11 will be with you.
I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me.12 Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content13 whatever the circumstances.
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry,14 whether living in plenty or in want.1513
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.1614
Yet it was good of you to share17 in my troubles.
Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days18 of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia,19 not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only;2016
for even when I was in Thessalonica,21 you sent me aid more than once when I was in need.2217
Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account.2318
I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus24 the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant25 offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.
And my God will meet all your needs26 according to the riches of his glory27 in Christ Jesus.
To our God and Father28 be glory for ever and ever. Amen.29
Greet all God's people in Christ Jesus. The brothers and sisters who are with me30 send greetings.
All the Lord's people31 here send you greetings, especially those who belong to Caesar's household.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ32 be with your spirit.33 Amen.a
