Philippians 4

Stand Firm in the Lord

1 Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you must stand firm in [the] Lord, my beloved. 2 I urge Euodia and Syntyche to agree in [the] Lord. 3 Yes, and I ask you, [my] true yokefellow, to help these [women] who have labored with me for the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names [are] in [the] book of life. 4 Rejoice in [the] Lord always. I will say [it] again: Rejoice! 5 {Let} your gentleness be apparent to all. The Lord [is] near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Think on These Things

8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever [is] honorable, whatever [is] right, whatever [is] pure, whatever [is] lovely, whatever [is] admirable— if anything [is] excellent [or] praiseworthy— think on these things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard [from me] , or seen in me, put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

The Generosity of the Philippians

10 Now I rejoice greatly in [the] Lord that at last you have revived [your] concern for me. You were indeed concerned, but you had no opportunity [to show it] . 11 I am not saying this out of need, for I have learned to be content regardless of my circumstances. 12 I know [how] to live humbly, and I know [how] to abound. I am accustomed to any and every situation— to being filled and being hungry, to having plenty and having need. 13 I can do all things through [Christ] who gives me strength. 14 Nevertheless, you have done well to share in my affliction. 15 And as you Philippians know, in [the] early days of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church but you partnered with me in the matter of giving and receiving. 16 For even [while I was] in Thessalonica, you provided for my needs once and again. 17 Not that I am seeking a gift, but I am looking for the fruit that may be credited to your account. 18 I have all I need and more, now that I have received your gifts from Epaphroditus. [They are] a sweet smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. 19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father [be] glory forever [and] ever. Amen.

Final Greetings

21 Greet all the saints in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me send you greetings. 22 All the saints send you greetings, especially those from the household of Caesar. 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ [be] with your spirit.
BYZ and TR include Amen.
