New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 3 I thank my God every time I remember you.
4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy
5 I am happy because you have joined me in spreading the good news. You have done so from the first day until now. 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,
6 I am sure that the One who began a good work in you will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns. 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 It is right for me to feel this way about all of you. I love you with all my heart. I may be held by chains, or I may be standing up for the truth of the good news. Either way, all of you share in God's grace together with me. 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 God can give witness that I long for all of you. I love you with the love that Christ Jesus gives. 8 God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
9 I pray that your love will grow more and more. And let it be based on knowledge and understanding. 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,
10 Then you will be able to know what is best. You will be pure and without blame until the day Christ returns. 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,
11 You will be filled with the fruit of right living produced by Jesus Christ. All of those things bring glory and praise to God. 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God.
