Therefore, my brethren, dearly loved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand firm in the Lord, my dearly-loved ones.
I entreat Euodia, and I entreat Syntyche, to be of one mind, as sisters in Christ.
Yes, and I beg you also, my faithful yoke-fellow, to help these women who have shared my toil in connection with the Good News, together with Clement and the rest of my fellow labourers, whose names are recorded in the Book of Life.
Always be glad in the Lord: I will repeat it, be glad.
Let your forbearing spirit be known to every one--the Lord is near.
Do not be over-anxious about anything, but by prayer and earnest pleading, together with thanksgiving, let your request be unreservedly made known in the presence of God.
