10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that once again a you renewed your care for me. b You were, in fact, concerned about me but lacked the opportunity to show it. 11 I don’t say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. c In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. 13 I am able to do all things through Him d who strengthens me. e 14 Still, you did well by sharing with me in my hardship.
15 And you Philippians f know that in the early days of the gospel, g when I left Macedonia, h no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving except you alone. 16 For even in Thessalonica i you sent gifts for my need j several times. 17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the profit k l that is increasing to your account. 18 But I have received everything in full, m and I have an abundance. I am fully supplied, having received from Epaphroditus n what you provided—a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing o to God. 19 And my God p will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
