Philippians 1

BBE 1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, with the Bishops and Deacons of the church: NIV 1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons: BBE 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. NIV 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. BBE 3 I give praise to my God at every memory of you, NIV 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. BBE 4 And in all my prayers for you all, making my request with joy, NIV 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy BBE 5 Because of your help in giving the good news from the first day till now; NIV 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, BBE 6 For I am certain of this very thing, that he by whom the good work was started in you will make it complete till the day of Jesus Christ: NIV 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. BBE 7 So it is right for me to take thought for you all in this way, because I have you in my heart; for in my chains, and in my arguments before the judges in support of the good news, making clear that it is true, you all have your part with me in grace. NIV 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. BBE 8 For God is my witness, how my love goes out to you all in the loving mercies of Christ Jesus. NIV 8 God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. BBE 9 And my prayer is that you may be increased more and more in knowledge and experience; NIV 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, BBE 10 So that you may give your approval to the best things; that you may be true and without wrongdoing till the day of Christ; NIV 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, BBE 11 Being full of the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. NIV 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God. BBE 12 Now it is my purpose to make clear to you, brothers, that the cause of the good news has been helped by my experiences; NIV 12 Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. BBE 13 So that it became clear through all the Praetorium, and to all the rest, that I was a prisoner on account of Christ; NIV 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. BBE 14 And most of the brothers in the Lord, taking heart because of my chains, are all the stronger to give the word of God without fear. NIV 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. BBE 15 Though some are preaching Christ out of envy and competition, others do it out of a good heart: NIV 15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. BBE 16 These do it from love, conscious that I am responsible for the cause of the good news: NIV 16 The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. BBE 17 But those are preaching Christ in a spirit of competition, not from their hearts, but with the purpose of giving me pain in my prison. NIV 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. BBE 18 What then? only that in every way, falsely or truly, the preaching of Christ goes on; and in this I am glad, and will be glad. NIV 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, BBE 19 For I am conscious that this will be for my salvation, through your prayer and the giving out of the stored wealth of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, NIV 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. BBE 20 In the measure of my strong hope and belief that in nothing will I be put to shame, but that without fear, as at all times, so now will Christ have glory in my body, by life or by death. NIV 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. BBE 21 For to me life is Christ and death is profit. NIV 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. BBE 22 But if I go on living in the flesh--if this is the fruit of my work--then I do not see what decision to make. NIV 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! BBE 23 I am in a hard position between the two, having a desire to go away and be with Christ, which is very much better: NIV 23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; BBE 24 Still, to go on in the flesh is more necessary because of you. NIV 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. BBE 25 And being certain of this, I am conscious that I will go on, yes, and go on with you all, for your growth and joy in the faith; NIV 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, BBE 26 So that your pride in me may be increased in Christ Jesus through my being present with you again. NIV 26 so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me. BBE 27 Only let your behaviour do credit to the good news of Christ, so that if I come and see you or if I am away from you, I may have news of you that you are strong in one spirit, working together with one soul for the faith of the good news; NIV 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 BBE 28 Having no fear of those who are against you; which is a clear sign of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God; NIV 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. BBE 29 Because to you it has been given in the cause of Christ not only to have faith in him, but to undergo pain on his account: NIV 29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him, BBE 30 Fighting the same fight which you saw in me, and now have word of in me. NIV 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.
