1 So, my beloved and longed for brethren, my joy and my crown, stand fast in the Lord, beloved. 2 I exhort, Euodia, and I exhort Syntyche, to think the same thing in the Lord. 3 Yea, I also entreat thee, noble yoke-fellow, assist those women, whosoever labored with me in the gospel, both along with Clement, and the rest of my fellow-workers, whose names are in the book of life. 4 Rejoice in the Lord always: I say to you again, Rejoice. 5 Let your clemency be made known to all men; the Lord is nigh. 6 Be solicitous about nothing; but in all prayer and supplication, let your request be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, that passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, so many things as are true, so many things as are noble, so many things as are righteous, so many things as are pure, so many things as are lovely, so many things as are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think on these things. 9 Whatsoever things you have indeed learned and received and heard and seen in me, do the same: and the God of peace will be with you.
10 But I greatly rejoice in the Lord, because indeed you have at length revived to think about me; in whatsoever you indeed were thinking, nevertheless you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak concerning deficiency: for I have learned to be content with those things amid which I am. 12 I indeed know how to be poor, and I know how to abound: in every thing and in all things I learned both to flourish and to be poor, both to abound and to be destitute. 13 I can do all things through him who fills me up with dynamite. 14 Moreover you did beautifully, communicating with my tribulation.
15 And you indeed know, O Philippians, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I came out from Macedonia, no church communicated with me in the word of giving and receiving, except you alone; 16 because also in Thessalonica both once and twice you sent to my need. 17 Not that I seek a gift; but I seek fruit abounding to your credit. 18 But I have all things, and I abound: I am full, having received from Epaphroditus those things from you, an odor of a sweet savor, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God. 19 But my God will supply all your need according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To God even our Father be the glory unto the ages of the ages. Amen.
