Philippians 2:13-23

BBE 13 For it is God who is the cause of your desires and of your acts, for his good pleasure. NIV 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. BBE 14 Do all things without protests and arguments; NIV 14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, BBE 15 So that you may be holy and gentle, children of God without sin in a twisted and foolish generation, among whom you are seen as lights in the 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 BBE 16 Offering the word of life; so that I may have glory in you in the day of Christ, because my running was not for nothing and my work was not without effect. 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. BBE 17 And even if I am offered like a drink offering, giving myself for the cause and work of your faith, I am glad and have joy with you all: 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. BBE 18 And in the same way do you be glad and have a part in my joy. NIV 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me. BBE 19 But I am hoping in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you before long, so that I may be comforted when I have news of you. 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. BBE 20 For I have no man of like mind who will truly have care for you. NIV 20 I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare. BBE 21 For they all go after what is theirs, not after the things of Christ. NIV 21 For everyone looks out for their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. BBE 22 But his quality is clear to you; how, as a child is to its father, so he was a help to me in the work of the good news. 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. BBE 23 Him then I am hoping to send as quickly as possible, when I am able to see how things will go for me: NIV 23 I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me.
