4 Therefore, my beloved and alonged-for brethren, bmy joy and crown, so cstand fast in the Lord, beloved.
Be United, Joyful, and in Prayer
2 I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche dto be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 1And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who elabored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in fthe Book of Life.
4 gRejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your 2gentleness be known to all men. hThe Lord is at hand.
6 iBe anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with jthanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and kthe peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are ltrue, whatever things are mnoble, whatever things are njust, owhatever things are pure, whatever things are plovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and qthe God of peace will be with you.
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last ryour 3care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, sto be content: 12 tI know how to 4be abased, and I know how to 5abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things uthrough 6Christ who strengthens me.
14 Nevertheless you have done well that vyou shared in my distress. 15 Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, wno church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only. 16 For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities. 17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek xthe fruit that abounds to your account. 18 Indeed I 7have all and abound. I am full, having received from yEpaphroditus the things sent from you, za sweet-smelling aroma, aan acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. 19 And my God bshall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 cNow to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.
21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren dwho are with me greet you. 22 All the saints greet you, but especially those who are of Caesar’s household.
23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with 8you all. Amen.
