So then, in this way, my dearly loved brothers, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord, dear friends.
I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to agree in the Lord.
Yes, I also ask you, true partner,a to help these women who have contended for the gospel at my side, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers whose names are in the book of life.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near.
Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable-if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise-dwell on these things.
Do what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.
I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last you have renewed your care for me. You were, in fact, concerned about me, but lacked the opportunity [to show it].
I don't say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
