Philippians 4

1 So, then my brethren, beloved and longed, for, my joy and crown, so stand, firm in the Lord, my beloved. 2 I am encouraging Euodia, and I am encouraging Syntyche, both to be mindful of the same thing in the Lord. 3 Yes, I am also requesting you, genuine colleague, help these women, who contended together with me in the good, news, also with Clement, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your, your* gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious in nothing, but in everything, let your, your* requests be made known to God by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving. 7 And the peace of God, which is superior to all perception, will be guarding your, your* hearts and your, your* minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Furthermore brethren, as many things as are true, as many as are honorable, as many as are righteous, as many as are pure, as many as are lovely, as many as have good, repute; if there is any virtue and if there is any praise, reason on these things. 9 The things which you* both learned and received and heard and saw in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you*.

10 But I rejoice in the Lord greatly, that now at last, you* have bloomed again the desire to be mindful of things on my behalf; in which, you* were even mindful of me, but you* had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking according to my lack of things; for* I have learned what things I am to be content. 12 I know how to be also humbled; I also know how to also abound. I have been initiated in everything, and in all things, both to be fed and to be hungry, both to abound and to lack. 13 I am strong in all things in the Christ, who is empowering me.

14 However you* did well, having shared together with my affliction. 15 Now you* also know, you* Philippians, that in the beginning of the good, news, when I went out from Macedonia, no congregation* shared with me in the matter {Greek: word. Or: The Word} of the giving and receiving, except you* only. 16 Because even in Thessalonica, you* sent once and then twice to my need. 17 Not that I am seeking after the present, but I am seeking after the fruit that increases to your, your* account. 18 But I have all things, and I am abounding. I have been filled, having accepted from Epaphroditus the things which came from you*, an aroma of a sweet, fragrance, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. 19 Now my God will be filling every need of yours* according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father is the glory forevermore. Amen.

21 Greet every holy, one in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are together with me greet you*. 22 All the holy, ones greet you*, especially those who are from Caesar' s household.

23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ is with all of you*. Amen.
