1 So, my beloved and much desired brothers, my joy and crown, so stand firm in the Lord, beloved. 2 I beseech Euodias and I beseech Syntyche to have the same mind in the Lord. 3 Yes, I beseech you also, faithful yoke-fellow, help those women who strove in the gospel with me, with Clement and the rest of my co-laborers, whose names are in the book of life. 4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice. 5 Let your gentleness be known to all men; the Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but with all prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And may the peace of God which passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are reputable, if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, consider these things; 9 and what you learned and received and heard and knew in me, these things do; and the God of peace shall be with you.
10 But I rejoice greatly in the Lord, that now at length you began again to care for me, for whom also you did care, but had no opportunity [to serve me]. 11 Not that I speak of want; for I have learned in whatever circumstances I am to be contented. 12 I know both how to be humbled, and I know how to abound; in every thing and in all conditions I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer want. 13 I endure all things with him that strengthens me. 14 But you did well to communicate with my affliction,
15 And you know also, Philippians, that at the beginning of the gospel, when I went out from Macedonia, no church communicated with me in the matter of giving and receiving except you only; 16 for even in Thessalonica and once and again you sent to my need. 17 Not that I desire a gift, but I desire the fruit which abounds to your account. 18 But I have all things and abound, I am fully supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the things from you, a perfume of good odor, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. 19 And God shall fully supply all your need, according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father be the glory forever and ever; amen.
