Philippians 4


Stand Firm in The Lord

1So that, [5brethren 1my 2beloved 3and 4longed for], [2joy 3and 4crown 1my], so stand firm in the Lord, beloved! 2Euodia I appeal to, and Syntyche I appeal to, [2the 3same 1to think] in the Lord. 3Yes, I ask also you [2fellow-companion 1genuine], aid these women! who in the good news fought together with me; also with Clement, and the rest of my fellow-workers, whose names are in the book of life. 4Rejoice in the Lord at all times, again I say, Rejoice! 5 [2your leniency 1Let] be known to all men! The lord is near. 6Let no one be anxious, but in all prayer and supplication with thankfulness [2your requests 1let] be made known to God! 7And the peace of God, the one surpassing every mind, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

Consider These Virtues

8For the rest, brethren, as much as is true, as much as is serious, as much as is just, as much as is pure, as much as is friendly, as much as is of good report, if any virtue and if any high praise, these things consider! 9What also you learned and received, and heard, and saw in me, these things practice! and the God of peace will be with you. 10And I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that already at some time you flourished again [2about 3me 1to think]; upon which also you thought, but lacked means. 11Not that, [2as to 3deficiency 1I speak]; for I learned in what I am to be self-sufficient. 12I know also to be humble, I know also to abound. In everything, and in all things I am initiated, both to be full and to hunger, and to abound and to be lacking. 13I am strong for all things in the one empowering me -- Christ. 14Besides [2well 1you did] partaking together with my affliction. 15And know also you, O Philippians, that in the beginning of the good news, when I came forth from Macedonia, not one [3me 1assembly 2participated with] in the matter of portioning out and receiving, except you alone. 16For also in Thessalonica even once and twice [2for 3my need 1you sent forth]. 17Not that I anxiously seek the gift, but I anxiously seek the fruit being superabundant for your account. 18But I receive all things, and I abound. I am full, having received by Epaphroditus the things from you, a scent of pleasant aroma, a sacrifice accepted, well-pleasing to God.

God will Fill all your Need

19 And my God will fill all your need, according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20But to the God and father of us be the glory into the eons of the eons. Amen. 21Greet every holy one in Christ Jesus! [5greet 6you 1The 3with 4me 2brethren]. 22[4greet 5you 1All 2the 3holy ones], and especially the ones of the house of Caesar. 23The favor of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
