Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of charity, if any society of the spirit, if any bowels of commiseration: 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 Fulfil ye my joy, that you be of one mind, having the same charity, being of one accord, agreeing in sentiment. 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.
3 Let nothing be done through contention: neither by vain glory. But in humility, let each esteem others better than themselves: 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
4 Each one not considering the things that are his own, but those that are other men’s. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5 For let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6 Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7 But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man. 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
8 He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even 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 cause, God also hath exalted him and hath given him a name which 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 every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth: 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 And that every tongue should confess 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 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, (as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only but much more now in my absence) with fear and trembling work out your salvation. 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 who worketh in you, both to will and to accomplish, according to his 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 murmurings and hesitations: 14 Do everything without complaining or arguing,
15 That you may be blameless and sincere children of God, without reproof, in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation: among whom you shine as lights 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 Holding forth the word of life to my glory in the day of Christ: because I have not run in vain, nor laboured in vain. 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 Yea, and if I be made a victim upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and congratulate with 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 selfsame thing, do you also rejoice and congratulate with me. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.
19 And I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy unto you shortly, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know the things concerning 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 the same mind, who with sincere affection is solicitous for you. 20 I have no one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare.
21 For all seek the things that are their own not the things that are Jesus Christ’s. 21 For everyone looks out for his own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.
22 Now know ye the proof of him: that as a son with the father, so hath he 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 Him therefore I hope to send unto you immediately: so soon as I shall see how it will go with 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 I myself also shall come to you shortly. 24 And I am confident in the Lord that I myself will come soon.
25 But I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow labourer and fellow soldier, but your apostle: and he that hath ministered to my wants. 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 indeed he longed after you all: and was sad, for that you had heard that he was sick. 26 For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill.
27 For indeed he was sick, nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him. And not only on him, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. 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, I sent him the more speedily: that seeing him again, you may rejoice, and I may be without sorrow. 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 Receive him therefore with all joy in the Lord: and treat with honour such as he is. 29 Welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor men like him,
30 Because for the work of Christ he came to the point of death: delivering his life, that he might fulfil that which on your part was wanting towards 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.
