1 Therefore, my brethren, beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved. 2 I entreat Euodia, and I entreat Syntiche, to think the same thing in the Lord. 3 Yea, I request you also, true yoke-fellow, help these women, who, indeed, labored with me in the Gospel, with Clement also, and my remaining fellow-laborers, whose names are in the book of life. 4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. 5 Let your forbearance be known to all men: the Lord is near! 6 Be anxious for nothing; but, in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God: 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are righteous, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 The things also, which ye learned, and received, and heard, and saw in me, these practice; and the God of peace will be with you.
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at length ye revived your thought in my behalf, for whom ye were taking thought, but ye lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking in respect of want; for I learned in whatsoever circumstances I am, to be content. 12 I both know how to be humbled, and I know how to abound: in everything, and in all things, I have learned both to be well fed, and to be hungry, both to abound, and to be in want. 13 I am strong enough for all things in Him Who strengtheneth me. 14 Notwithstanding, ye did well, in sharing with me in my tribulation.
15 And know ye also, Philippians, that in the beginning of the Gospel, when I went forth from Macedonia, no assembly had fellowship with me in the matter of giving and receiving, but ye only; 16 because even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again to my need. 17 Not that I am seeking for the gift; but I seek for the fruit that abounds to your account. 18 But I have all, and abound; I have been filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, an odor of sweet smell, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. 19 But my God will liberally supply all your need according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
