Here is what I'm asking Euodia and Syntyche to do. I want them to agree with each other because they belong to the Lord.
My true companion, here is what I ask you to do. Help those women. They have served at my side. They have helped me spread the good news. So have Clement and the rest of those who have worked together with me. Their names are all written in the Book of Life.
Always be joyful because you belong to the Lord. I will say it again. Be joyful.
Let everyone know how gentle you are. The Lord is coming soon.
Don't worry about anything. Instead, tell God about everything. Ask and pray. Give thanks to him.
Then God's peace will watch over your hearts and your minds because you belong to Christ Jesus. God's peace can never be completely understood.
Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things.
Do what you have learned or received or heard from me. Follow my example. The God who gives peace will be with you.
