Philippians 4

1Therefore, my brethre, beloued and longed for, my ioy and my crowne, so continue in the Lord, yee beloued.

2I pray Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of one accord in the Lord,

3Yea, and I beseech thee, faithfull yokefellow, helpe those women, which laboured with me in the Gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowe labourers, whose names are in the booke of life.

4Reioyce in the Lord alway, againe I say, reioyce.

5Let your patient minde be knowen vnto all men. The Lord is at hand.

6Be nothing carefull, but in all thinges let your requestes be shewed vnto God in praier, and supplication with giuing of thankes.

7And the peace of God which passeth all vnderstanding, shall preserue your heartes and mindes in Christ Iesus.

8Furthermore, brethre, whatsoeuer things are true, whatsoeuer things are honest, whatsoeuer thinges are iust, whatsoeuer thinges are pure, whatsoeuer thinges are worthie loue, whatsoeuer things are of good report, if there be any vertue, or if there be any praise, thinke on these things,

9Which yee haue both learned and receiued, and heard, and seene in mee: those things doe, and the God of peace shalbe with you.

10Nowe I reioyce also in the Lord greatly, that nowe at the last your care for mee springeth afresh, wherein notwithstanding ye were careful, but yee lacked opportunitie.

11I speake not because of want: for I haue learned in whatsoeuer state I am, therewith to bee content.

12And I can be abased, and I can abounde: euery where in all things I am instructed, both to be full, and to be hungrie, and to abounde, and to haue want.

13I am able to do al things through the helpe of Christ, which strengtheneth me.

14Notwithstanding yee haue well done, that yee did communicate to mine affliction.

15And yee Philippians knowe also that in the beginning of the Gospell, when I departed from Macedonia, no Church communicated with me, concerning the matter of giuing and receiuing, but yee onely.

16For euen when I was in Thessalonica, yee sent once, and afterward againe for my necessitie,

17Not that I desire a gift: but I desire the fruit which may further your reckoning.

18Now I haue receiued all, and haue plentie: I was euen filled, after that I had receiued of Epaphroditus that which came from you, an odour that smellleth sweete, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasant to God.

19And my God shall fulfill all your necessities through his riches with glorie in Iesus Christ.

20Vnto God euen our Father be praise for euermore, Amen.

21Salute all the Saintes in Christ Iesus. The brethren, which are with me, greete you.

22All the Saintes salute you, and most of all they which are of Cesars houshold.

The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you all, Amen.

23Written to the Philippians from Rome, and sent by Epaphroditus.
