Paul and Timothy,1 servants of Christ Jesus, To all God's holy people2 in Christ Jesus at Philippi,3 together with the overseers4 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 heart14 and, 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.
