Paul and Timothy,1 servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints2 in Christ Jesus at Philippi,3 together with the overseersa4 and deacons:52
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.6
I thank my God every time I remember you.74
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray8 with joy
because of your partnership9 in the gospel from the first day10 until now,
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion11 until the day of Christ Jesus.127
It is right13 for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart;14 for whether I am in chains15 or defending16 and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God's grace with me.
God can testify17 how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
And this is my prayer: that your love18 may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,1910
so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ,2011
filled with the fruit of righteousness21 that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God.
