Philippians 4

Philippians 4

1Paul calleth to stedfastness in Christ, 2and after some particular admonitions, 3exhorteth generally to religious joy, 5moderation, 6trust in God with prayer, 8and to every branch of moral goodness. 10He testifieth his joy in the care shewn by the Philippians for his supply in prison, though being always content he was above want; 15and commendeth their former liberality to him, not for his own sake, but for the good that would redound to them from it. 18He acknowledgeth the receipt of their late bounty, assuring them that God would both accept and reward it. 20He giveth glory to God, and concludeth with salutations, and a blessing.

1 Therefore, 1my brethren 2dearly beloved and longed for, 3my joy and crown, so 4stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.

2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, 1that they be of the same mind in the Lord.

3 And I intreat thee also, 1true yokefellow, 2help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in 3the book of life.

4 1Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

5 1Let your moderation be known unto all men. 2The Lord is at hand.

6 Be 1careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And 1the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds 2through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, 1whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are 2ahonest, whatsoever things are 3just, whatsoever things are 4pure, whatsoever things are 5lovely, whatsoever things are of 6good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any 7praise, think on these things.

9 1Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and 2the God of peace shall be with you.

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your 1care of me ahath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but 2ye lacked opportunity.

11 1Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

12 1I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things 1through Christ 2which strengtheneth me.

14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, 1that ye did communicate with my affliction.

15 Now ye Philippians know also, that 1in the beginning of the gospel, 2when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

16 For even in 1Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

17 1Not because I desire a gift: but I desire 2fruit that may abound to your account.

18 But aI have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, 1an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

19 But my God shall 1supply all your need 2according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus

20 Now 1unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

21 1Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. 2The brethren which are with me greet you.

22 1All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.

23 1The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
