1Therefore, my belovedbrethrenawhom I 1long to see, my joy and crown, in thisway2standfirm in the Lord, my beloved.
I urgeEuodia and I urgeSyntyche to b3live in harmony in the Lord.
3Indeed, truecompanion, I ask you also to helpthesewomenwho have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clementalso and the rest of my 4fellowworkers, whose5names are in the book of life.
46Rejoice in the Lordalways; again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentle spirit be known to allmen. 7The Lord is cnear.
68Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by 9prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be madeknown to God.
And 10the peace of God, which surpassesalldcomprehension, will 11guard your hearts and your 12minds in 13ChristJesus.
8Finally, brethren, 14whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is elovely, whatever is of goodrepute, if there is anyexcellence and ifanythingworthy of praise, fdwell on thesethings.
The things you have learned and received and heard and seen15in me, practicethesethings, and 16the God of peace will be with you.
But I rejoiced in the Lordgreatly, that now at last17you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lackedopportunity.
Not that I speakgfrom want, for I have learned to be h18content in whatevercircumstances I am.
I knowhow to getalong with humblemeans, and I alsoknowhow to live in prosperity; in any and everycircumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going19hungry, both of havingabundance and 20sufferingneed.
I candoallthingsithrough Him who 21strengthens me.
14Nevertheless, you have donewell to 22share with me in my affliction.
You yourselvesalsoknow, Philippians, that at the j23firstpreaching of the gospel, after I left24Macedonia, nochurch25shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone;
for even in 26Thessalonica you sent a gift morethanonce for my needs.
1727Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the kprofit which increases to your account.
But I havereceivedeverything in full and have an abundance; I am lamplysupplied, having received from 28Epaphroditusmwhat you have sent, n29a fragrantaroma, an acceptablesacrifice, well-pleasing to God.
And 30my God will supplyoall your needsaccording to His 31riches in glory in ChristJesus.
20Now to 32our God and Father33be the glorypforever and ever. Amen.
