LEB 1 Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons. NIV 1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons: LEB 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. LEB 3 I give thanks to my God upon my every remembrance of you, NIV 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. LEB 4 always in my every prayer for all of you, making the prayer with joy, NIV 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy LEB 5 because of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now, NIV 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, LEB 6 convinced of this same [thing], that the one who began a good work in you will finish [it] until the day of Christ Jesus, 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. LEB 7 just as it is right for me to think this about all of you, because I have you in my heart, [since] both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel all of you are sharers of grace with me. 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. LEB 8 For God [is] my witness, that I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. NIV 8 God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. LEB 9 And this I pray: that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, NIV 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, LEB 10 so that you may approve what is superior, in order that you may be sincere and blameless in 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, LEB 11 having been filled [with the] fruit of righteousness which [comes] 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. LEB 12 Now I want you to know, brothers, that {my circumstances} have happened instead for the progress of the gospel, NIV 12 Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. LEB 13 so that my imprisonment in Christ has become known in the whole praetorium and to all the rest, 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. LEB 14 and most of the brothers, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, dare [even] more to speak the word 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. LEB 15 Some even because of envy and strife preach Christ, but some also because of good will. NIV 15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. LEB 16 The latter [do so] from love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. NIV 16 The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. LEB 17 The former proclaim Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, thinking to raise up affliction in my imprisonment. 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. LEB 18 {What is the result?} Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in this I rejoice. But also I will rejoice, 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, LEB 19 for I know that this will turn out to me for deliverance through your prayer and the support 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. LEB 20 according to my eager expectation and hope, that I will be put to shame in nothing, but with all boldness, even now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether through life or through 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. LEB 21 For to me to live [is] Christ and to die [is] gain. NIV 21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. LEB 22 But if [it is] to live in the flesh, this [is] fruitful work for me, and which I will prefer [I do] not know. 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! LEB 23 But I am hard pressed {between the two options}, having the desire to depart and to be with Christ, {for this 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; LEB 24 But to stay on in the flesh [is] more necessary for your sake. NIV 24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. LEB 25 And because I am convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for your progress 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, LEB 26 so that [what] you can be proud of may increase in Christ Jesus because of me through my return again to you. NIV 26 so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me. LEB 27 Only lead your lives in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent I hear {your circumstances}, that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one soul contending side by side for the faith of the gospel, 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 LEB 28 and not letting yourselves be intimidated in anything by your opponents, which is a sign of destruction to them, but of your salvation, and this 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. LEB 29 because to you has been graciously granted on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer on behalf of him, 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, LEB 30 having the same struggle which you saw in me and now hear about in me. NIV 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.
