Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore if any comfort is in Christ, if any solace of charity, if any fellowship of Spirit, if any inwardness of mercy doing [if any entrails of mercy doing], 1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,
2 fill ye my joy, that ye understand the same thing, and have the same charity, of one will, and feel the same thing; [fulfill ye my joy, that ye understand the same thing, having the same charity, of one will, feeling the same thing;] 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
3 nothing by strife, neither by vain glory, but in meekness, deeming each other to be higher than himself; [+nothing doing, neither by strife, neither by vain glory, but in meekness, deeming higher than themselves together, or each holding others higher in virtue;] 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
4 not beholding each by himself what things be his own, but those things that be of other men. [not each by themselves beholding what things be their own, but those things that be of others.] 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5 And feel ye this thing in you, which was also in Christ Jesus; 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6 which when he was in the form of God, deemed not raven, that himself were even to God; [which when he was in the form of God, deemed not raven, himself to be even to God;] 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7 but he lowed himself [but he meeked himself], taking the form of a servant, and was made into the likeness of men, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
8 and in habit was found as a man. He meeked himself, and was made obedient to the death [+He meeked himself, made obedient unto the death/till to death], yea, to the death of the cross. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross!
9 For which thing God enhanced him, and gave to him a name that is above all name; [For which thing and God enhanced him, and gave to him a name that is above all names;] 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that in the name of Jesus each knee be bowed, of heavenly things, [and] of earthly things, and of hell's; 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and each tongue acknowledge, that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father. 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Therefore, my most dear-worthy brethren [my most dear-worthy], as evermore ye have obeyed, not in my presence only, but much more now in mine absence, work ye with dread and trembling your health. 12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence--continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,
13 For it is God that worketh in you, both to will [both to desire], and to perform, for good will. 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
14 And do ye all things without grumblings and doubtings; [Forsooth do ye all things without grutchings and doubtings;] 14 Do everything without complaining or arguing,
15 that ye be without plaint, and simple as the sons of God, without reproof, in the middle of a depraved nation [in the middle of a shrewd nation] and a wayward; among which ye shine as givers of light in the world [among whom ye shine as givers of light in the world;]. 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe
16 And hold ye together the word of life to my glory in the day of Christ; for I have not run in vain, neither I have travailed in vain. [holding together the word of life to my glory in the day of Christ; for I have not run in vain, neither in vain travailed.] 16 as you hold out the word of life--in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.
17 But though I be offered, or slain, on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I have joy, and I thank you all. [But and if I be offered, or slain, upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I have joy, and together thank you all.] 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you.
18 And for the same thing have ye joy, and thank ye me. [The same thing forsooth and ye have joy, and together thank me.] 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.
19 And I hope in the Lord Jesus, that I shall send Timothy soon to you [Forsooth I hope in the Lord Jesus, me to send Timothy soon to you], that I be of good comfort, when those things be known that be about you. 19 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you.
20 For I have no man so of one will, that is busy for you with clean affection. 20 I have no one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare.
21 For all men seek those things that be their own, not those that be of Christ Jesus. 21 For everyone looks out for his own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.
22 But know ye the assay of him [Forsooth know ye the experiment, or assay, of him], for as a son to the father he hath served with me in the gospel. 22 But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel.
23 Therefore I hope that I shall send him to you, at once as I see what things be about me. [Forsooth I hope me to send him to you, anon as I shall see what things be about me.] 23 I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me.
24 And I trust in the Lord, that also myself shall come to you soon. 24 And I am confident in the Lord that I myself will come soon.
25 And I guessed it needful to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and even-worker, and mine even-knight, but your apostle, and the minister of my need. 25 But I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my needs.
26 For he desired you all, and he was sorrowful, therefore that ye heard that he was sick. 26 For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill.
27 For he was sick [till] to the death, but God had mercy on him; and not only on him, but also on me, lest I had heaviness on heaviness [lest I had heaviness upon heaviness]. 27 Indeed he was ill, and almost died. But God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me, to spare me sorrow upon sorrow.
28 Therefore more hastily I sent him, that when ye have seen him, ye have joy again, and I be without heaviness. 28 Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, so that when you see him again you may be glad and I may have less anxiety.
29 Therefore receive ye him with all joy in the Lord, and have ye such with all honour. 29 Welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor men like him,
30 For the work of Christ he went to death, giving his life, that he should fulfill that that failed of you with my service. [For why for the work of Christ unto the death he went, giving his life, that he should fulfill that that failed to you with my service.] 30 because he almost died for the work of Christ, risking his life to make up for the help you could not give me.
