Philippians 2

NCV 1 Does your life in Christ give you strength? Does his love comfort you? Do we share together in the spirit? Do you have mercy and kindness? NIV 1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, NCV 2 If so, make me very happy by having the same thoughts, sharing the same love, and having one mind and purpose. NIV 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. NCV 3 When you do things, do not let selfishness or pride be your guide. Instead, be humble and give more honor to others than to yourselves. NIV 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, NCV 4 Do not be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of others. NIV 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. NCV 5 In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus. NIV 5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: NCV 6 Christ himself was like God in everything. But he did not think that being equal with God was something to be used for his own benefit. NIV 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; NCV 7 But he gave up his place with God and made himself nothing. He was born to be a man and became like a servant. NIV 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. NCV 8 And when he was living as a man, he humbled himself and was fully obedient to God, even when that caused his death -- death on a cross. NIV 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! NCV 9 So God raised him to the highest place. God made his name greater than every other name NIV 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, NCV 10 so that every knee will bow to the name of Jesus -- everyone in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. NIV 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, NCV 11 And everyone will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and bring glory to God the Father. NIV 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. NCV 12 My dear friends, you have always obeyed God when I was with you. It is even more important that you obey now while I am away from you. Keep on working to complete your salvation with fear and trembling, NIV 12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, NCV 13 because God is working in you to help you want to do and be able to do what pleases him. NIV 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. NCV 14 Do everything without complaining or arguing. NIV 14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, NCV 15 Then you will be innocent and without any wrong. You will be God's children without fault. But you are living with crooked and mean people all around you, among whom you shine like stars in the dark world. NIV 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky NCV 16 You offer the teaching that gives life. So when Christ comes again, I can be happy because my work was not wasted. I ran the race and won. NIV 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. NCV 17 Your faith makes you offer your lives as a sacrifice in serving God. If I have to offer my own blood with your sacrifice, I will be happy and full of joy with all of you. NIV 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. NCV 18 You also should be happy and full of joy with me. NIV 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me. NCV 19 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon. I will be happy to learn how you are. NIV 19 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you. NCV 20 I have no one else like Timothy, who truly cares for you. NIV 20 I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare. NCV 21 Other people are interested only in their own lives, not in the work of Jesus Christ. NIV 21 For everyone looks out for their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. NCV 22 You know the kind of person Timothy is. You know he has served with me in telling the Good News, as a son serves his father. NIV 22 But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel. NCV 23 I plan to send him to you quickly when I know what will happen to me. NIV 23 I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me. NCV 24 I am sure that the Lord will help me to come to you soon. NIV 24 And I am confident in the Lord that I myself will come soon. NCV 25 Epaphroditus, my brother in Christ, works and serves with me in the army of Christ. When I needed help, you sent him to me. I think now that I must send him back to you, NIV 25 But I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, co-worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my needs. NCV 26 because he wants very much to see all of you. He is worried because you heard that he was sick. NIV 26 For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill. NCV 27 Yes, he was sick, and nearly died, but God had mercy on him and me too so that I would not have more sadness. NIV 27 Indeed he was ill, and almost died. But God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me, to spare me sorrow upon sorrow. NCV 28 I want very much to send him to you so that when you see him you can be happy, and I can stop worrying about you. NIV 28 Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, so that when you see him again you may be glad and I may have less anxiety. NCV 29 Welcome him in the Lord with much joy. Give honor to people like him, NIV 29 So then, welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor people like him, NCV 30 because he almost died for the work of Christ. He risked his life to give me the help you could not give in your service to me. NIV 30 because he almost died for the work of Christ. He risked his life to make up for the help you yourselves could not give me.
