1 My brothers and sisters, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord's strength. I love you and long for you. Dear friends, you are my joy and my crown. 1 Therefore, my brothers, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends!
2 Here is what I'm asking Euodia and Syntyche to do. I want them to agree with each other because they belong to the Lord. 2 I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to agree with each other in the Lord.
3 My true companion, here is what I ask you to do. Help those women. They have served at my side. They have helped me spread the good news. So have Clement and the rest of those who have worked together with me. Their names are all written in the Book of Life. 3 Yes, and I ask you, loyal yokefellow, help these women who have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.
4 Always be joyful because you belong to the Lord. I will say it again. Be joyful. 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
5 Let everyone know how gentle you are. The Lord is coming soon. 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
6 Don't worry about anything. Instead, tell God about everything. Ask and pray. Give thanks to him. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
