Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
But I would ye should understand , brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;
But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed , but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
And having this confidence , I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;
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;
For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake ;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.
But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.
For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness , because that ye had heard that he had been sick .
Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.
Not as though I had already attained , either were already perfect : but I follow after , if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again ; wherein ye were also careful , but ye lacked opportunity .
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned , in whatsoever state I am , therewith to be content.
Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.
