1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.
4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say , Rejoice .
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
10 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 .
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned , in whatsoever state I am , therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased , and I know how to abound : every where * and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry , both to abound and to suffer need .
14 Notwithstanding ye have well done , that ye did communicate with my affliction.
18 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.
22 All the saints salute you *, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
