41Rejoice in the Lordalways; again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentle spirit be known to allmen. 2The Lord is anear.
63Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by 4prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be madeknown to God.
And 5the peace of God, which surpassesallbcomprehension, will 6guard your hearts and your 7minds in 8ChristJesus.
8Finally, brethren, 9whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is clovely, whatever is of goodrepute, if there is anyexcellence and ifanythingworthy of praise, ddwell on thesethings.
The things you have learned and received and heard and seen10in me, practicethesethings, and 11the God of peace will be with you.
But I rejoiced in the Lordgreatly, that now at last12you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lackedopportunity.
Not that I speakefrom want, for I have learned to be f13content 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 going14hungry, both of havingabundance and 15sufferingneed.
I candoallthingsgthrough Him who 16strengthens me.
14Nevertheless, you have donewell to 17share with me in my affliction.
