27 Only lead your lives in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent I hear ⌊your circumstances⌋h, that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one soul contending side by side for the faith of the gospel, 28 and not letting yourselves be intimidated in anything by your opponents, which is a sign of destruction to them, but of your salvation, and this from God, 29 because to you has been graciously granted on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer on behalf of him, 30 having the same struggle which you saw in me and now hear about in me.
2 Therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, 2 complete my joy, so that ⌊you are in agreement⌋a, having the same love, united in spirit, ⌊having one purpose⌋b. 3 Do nothing according to selfish ambition or according to empty conceit, but in humility considering one another better than yourselves, 4 each of youc not looking out for ⌊your own interests⌋d, but also each of you for ⌊the interests⌋e of others.
