Philippians 1:19-26

19for I know that athrough your prayers and bthe help of cthe Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, 20as it is my eager expectation and hope dthat I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full ecourage now as always Christ fwill be honored in my body, gwhether by life or by death. 21For to me hto live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 iI am hard pressed between the two. My desire is jto depart and kbe with Christ, for that is far better. 24But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account. 25 lConvinced of this mI know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your nprogress and ojoy in the faith, 26so that in me pyou may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.
