Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,
For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.
And this I pray , that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
And having this confidence , I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;
That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.
Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent , I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy , and rejoice with you all.
But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort , when I know your state.
For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.
Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants.
Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.
But I have all, and abound : I am full , having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen . [To the Philippians written from Rome, by Epaphroditus.]
