Philippians 1:12-20

NAS 12 Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater 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. NAS 13 so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else, 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. NAS 14 and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak 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. NAS 15 Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will; NIV 15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. NAS 16 the latter do it out of 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. NAS 17 the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress 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. NAS 18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice. Yes, and 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, NAS 19 for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision 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. NAS 20 according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether 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.
