Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Paul and Timotheus, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with overseers and ministrants; 1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons:
2 Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 I give thanks to my God upon all the remembrance of you, 3 I thank my God every time I remember you.
4 always, in every supplication of mine for you all, with joy making the supplication, 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy
5 for your contribution to the good news from the first day till now, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,
6 having been confident of this very thing, that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform [it] till a day of Jesus Christ, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
7 according as it is righteous for me to think this in behalf of you all, because of my having you in the heart, both in my bonds, and [in] the defence and confirmation of the good news, all of you being fellow-partakers with me of grace. 7 It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart; for whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God's grace with me.
8 For God is my witness, how I long for you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ, 8 God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
9 and this I pray, that your love yet more and more may abound in full knowledge, and all judgment, 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,
10 for your proving the things that differ, that ye may be pure and offenceless -- to a day of Christ, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,
11 being filled with the fruit of righteousness, that [is] through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God.
12 And I wish you to know, brethren, that the things concerning me, rather to an advancement of the good news have come, 12 Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel.
13 so that my bonds have become manifest in Christ in the whole praetorium, and to the other places -- all, 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.
14 and the greater part of the brethren in the Lord, having confidence by my bonds, are more abundantly bold -- fearlessly to speak the word. 14 Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.
15 Certain, indeed, even through envy and contention, and certain also through good-will, do preach the Christ; 15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.
16 the one, indeed, of rivalry the Christ do proclaim, not purely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds, 16 The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.
17 and the other out of love, having known that for defence of the good news I am set: 17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains.
18 what then? in every way, whether in pretence or in truth, Christ is proclaimed -- and in this I rejoice, yea, and shall rejoice. 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice,
19 For I have known that this shall fall out to me for salvation, through your supplication, and the supply of the Spirit of Christ Jesus, 19 for I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.
20 according to my earnest expectation and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, and in all freedom, as always, also now Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether through life or through death, 20 I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.
21 for to me to live [is] Christ, and to die gain. 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
22 And if to live in the flesh [is] to me a fruit of work, then what shall I choose? I know not; 22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!
23 for I am pressed by the two, having the desire to depart, and to be with Christ, for it is far better, 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
24 and to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account, 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.
25 and of this being persuaded, I have known that I shall remain and continue with you all, to your advancement and joy of the faith, 25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith,
26 that your boasting may abound in Christ Jesus in me through my presence again to you. 26 so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me.
27 Only worthily of the good news of the Christ conduct ye yourselves, that, whether having come and seen you, whether being absent I may hear of the things concerning you, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one soul, striving together for the faith of the good news, 27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel
28 and not terrified in anything by those opposing, which to them indeed is a token of destruction, and to you of salvation, and that from God; 28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved--and that by God.
29 because to you it was granted, on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in him, but also on behalf of him to suffer; 29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him,
30 the same conflict having, such as ye saw in me, and now hear of in me. 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.
