CEB 1 From Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus. To all those in Philippi who are God's people in Christ Jesus, along with your supervisors and servants. NRS 1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons: CEB 2 May the grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. NRS 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. CEB 3 I thank my God every time I mention you in my prayers. NRS 3 I thank my God every time I remember you, CEB 4 I'm thankful for all of you every time I pray, and it's always a prayer full of joy. NRS 4 constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, CEB 5 I'm glad because of the way you have been my partners in the ministry of the gospel from the time you first believed it until now. NRS 5 because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. CEB 6 I'm sure about this: the one who started a good work in you will stay with you to complete the job by the day of Christ Jesus. NRS 6 I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ. CEB 7 I have good reason to think this way about all of you because I keep you in my heart. You are all my partners in God's grace, both during my time in prison and in the defense and support of the gospel. NRS 7 It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart, for all of you share in God's grace with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. CEB 8 God is my witness that I feel affection for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus. NRS 8 For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus. CEB 9 This is my prayer: that your love might become even more and more rich with knowledge and all kinds of insight. NRS 9 And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight CEB 10 I pray this so that you will be able to decide what really matters and so you will be sincere and blameless on the day of Christ. NRS 10 to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, CEB 11 I pray that you will then be filled with the fruit of righteousness, which comes from Jesus Christ, in order to give glory and praise to God. NRS 11 having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God. CEB 12 Brothers and sisters, I want you to know that the things that have happened to me have actually advanced the gospel. NRS 12 I want you to know, beloved, that what has happened to me has actually helped to spread the gospel, CEB 13 The whole Praetorian Guard and everyone else knows that I'm in prison for Christ. NRS 13 so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to everyone else that my imprisonment is for Christ; CEB 14 Most of the brothers and sisters have had more confidence through the Lord to speak the word boldly and bravely because of my jail time. NRS 14 and most of the brothers and sisters, having been made confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, dare to speak the word with greater boldness and without fear. CEB 15 Some certainly preach Christ with jealous and competitive motives, but others preach with good motives. NRS 15 Some proclaim Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from goodwill. CEB 16 They are motivated by love, because they know that I'm put here to give a defense of the gospel; NRS 16 These proclaim Christ out of love, knowing that I have been put here for the defense of the gospel; CEB 17 the others preach Christ because of their selfish ambition. They are insincere, hoping to cause me more pain while I'm in prison. NRS 17 the others proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but intending to increase my suffering in my imprisonment. CEB 18 What do I think about this? Just this: since Christ is proclaimed in every possible way, whether from dishonest or true motives, I'm glad and I'll continue to be glad. NRS 18 What does it matter? Just this, that Christ is proclaimed in every way, whether out of false motives or true; and in that I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, CEB 19 I'm glad because I know that this will result in my release through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ. NRS 19 for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance. CEB 20 It is my expectation and hope that I won't be put to shame in anything. Rather, I hope with daring courage that Christ's greatness will be seen in my body, now as always, whether I live or die. NRS 20 It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be put to shame in any way, but that by my speaking with all boldness, Christ will be exalted now as always in my body, whether by life or by death. CEB 21 Because for me, living serves Christ and dying is even better. NRS 21 For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain. CEB 22 If I continue to live in this world, I get results from my work. NRS 22 If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which I prefer. CEB 23 But I don't know what I prefer. I'm torn between the two because I want to leave this life and be with Christ, which is far better. NRS 23 I am hard pressed between the two: my desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better; CEB 24 However, it's more important for me to stay in this world for your sake. NRS 24 but to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you. CEB 25 I'm sure of this: I will stay alive and remain with all of you to help your progress and the joy of your faith, NRS 25 Since I am convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for your progress and joy in faith, CEB 26 and to increase your pride in Christ Jesus through my presence when I visit you again. NRS 26 so that I may share abundantly in your boasting in Christ Jesus when I come to you again. CEB 27 Most important, live together in a manner worthy of Christ's gospel. Do this, whether I come and see you or I'm absent and hear about you. Do this so that you stand firm, united in one spirit and mind as you struggle together to remain faithful to the gospel. NRS 27 Only, live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that, whether I come and see you or am absent and hear about you, I will know that you are standing firm in one spirit, striving side by side with one mind for the faith of the gospel, CEB 28 That way, you won't be afraid of anything your enemies do. Your faithfulness and courage are a sign of their coming destruction and your salvation, which is from God. NRS 28 and are in no way intimidated by your opponents. For them this is evidence of their destruction, but of your salvation. And this is God's doing. CEB 29 God has generously granted you the privilege, not only of believing in Christ but also of suffering for Christ's sake. NRS 29 For he has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well— CEB 30 You are having the same struggle that you saw me face and now hear that I'm still facing. NRS 30 since you are having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.
