Good News Translation w/ Apocrypha (GNTA) New International Version (NIV)
10 In my life in union with the Lord it is a great joy to me that after so long a time you once more had the chance of showing that you care for me. I don't mean that you had stopped caring for me - you just had no chance to show it. 10 I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.
11 And I am not saying this because I feel neglected, for I have learned to be satisfied with what I have. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
12 I know what it is to be in need and what it is to have more than enough. I have learned this secret, so that anywhere, at any time, I am content, whether I am full or hungry, whether I have too much or too little. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
13 I have the strength to face all conditions by the power that Christ gives me. 13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
14 But it was very good of you to help me in my troubles. 14 Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.
15 You Philippians know very well that when I left Macedonia in the early days of preaching the Good News, you were the only church to help me; you were the only ones who shared my profits and losses. 15 Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only;
16 More than once when I needed help in Thessalonica, you sent it to me. 16 for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid again and again when I was in need.
17 It is not that I just want to receive gifts; rather, I want to see profit added to your account. 17 Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account.
18 Here, then, is my receipt for everything you have given me - and it has been more than enough! I have all I need now that Epaphroditus has brought me all your gifts. They are like a sweet-smelling offering to God, a sacrifice which is acceptable and pleasing to him. 18 I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.
19 And with all his abundant wealth through Christ Jesus, my God will supply all your needs. 19 And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
20 To our God and Father be the glory forever and ever! Amen. 20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
