Paul and Timothy, servantsa of Christ Jesus, To all the 1saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the 2overseersb and 3deacons:c24Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
35I thank my God 6in all my remembrance of you,
always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy,
57because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.
And I am sure of this, that he who began 8a good work in you 9will bring it to completion at 10the day of Jesus Christ.
It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you 11in my heart, for you are all 12partakers with me of grace,d both 13in my imprisonment and in 14the defense and confirmation of the gospel.
For 15God is my witness, 16how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.
