Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the holy men in Christ Jesus, that be at Philippi, with bishops and deacons, 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 and peace to you of God our Father [grace to you and peace of God our Father], and of the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 I do thankings to my God in all mind of you 3 I thank my God every time I remember you.
4 evermore in all my prayers for all you with joy, and make beseeching 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy
5 on your communing in the gospel of Christ, from the first day till now [from the first day unto now]; 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,
6 trusting this same thing, that he that began in you a good work, shall perform it till into the 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 As it is just to me to feel this thing for all you [for you all], for that I have you in heart, and in my bonds, and in defending and confirming of the gospel, that all ye be fellows of my joy. 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 a witness to me, how I covet all you [how I covet 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 thing I pray, that your charity be plenteous more and more in knowing [that your charity be plenteous more and more in science, or knowing], and in all wit; 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,
10 that ye approve the better things [that ye prove the better things], that ye be clean and without offence in the 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 filled [full-filled] with the fruit of rightwiseness by Jesus Christ, into the glory and praising of God. 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God.
12 For, brethren, I will that ye know, that the things that be about me have come more to the profit of the gospel, 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 were made known in Christ, in each moot hall, and in all other places; 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 that more of [the] brethren trusting in the Lord more plenteously for my bonds, durst without dread speak the word of God. [that more of the brethren in the Lord trusting in my bonds, more plenteously durst without dread speak the word of God.] 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 But some for envy and strife, some for good will, preach Christ; 15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.
16 and some of charity, witting that I am put in the defence of the gospel. 16 The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.
17 But some of strife [Forsooth some of contention, or strife,] show Christ not cleanly, guessing them(selves) to raise tribulation to my bonds. 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 But what? while on all manner, either by occasion, either by truth, Christ is showed [What soothly? the while on all manner, either by contention, either by truth, Christ is showed]; and in this thing I have joy, but also I shall have joy. 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 And I know, that this thing shall come to me into health by your prayer, and the under-ministering of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 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 by mine abiding and hope [after mine abiding and hope]. For in nothing I shall be ashamed, but in all trust as evermore and now, Christ shall be magnified in my body, either by life, either by 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 is winning. 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
22 That if to live in flesh, [this] is fruit of work to me, lo! what I shall choose, I know not. [That if to live in flesh, this is fruit of work to me, and what I shall 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 But I am constrained of two things, I have desire to be departed [Forsooth I am constrained of two things, having desire to be dissolved, or departed the soul from the body], and to be with Christ, it is much more better; 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
24 but to dwell in flesh, is needful for you. 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.
25 And I trusting this thing, know that I shall dwell, and perfectly dwell to all you, to your profit and joy of 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 thanking abound in Christ Jesus in me, by my coming 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 live ye worthily to the gospel of Christ, that whether when I come and see you, either absent I hear of you [or absent I shall hear of you], that ye stand in one spirit of one will, travailing together to the faith of the gospel. 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 in nothing be ye afeared of adversaries, which is to them cause of perdition, but to you a cause of health. And this thing is of 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 For it is given to you for Christ, that not only ye believe in him, but also that ye suffer for him; 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 having the same strife, which ye saw in me, and now ye have heard of me. 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.
