1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so a in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.
3 And I entreat thee also, true a, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the b.
4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your a be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 a b for nothing; but in every thing by c and supplication with d let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the a of God, which passeth all b, shall c your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are a, whatsoever things are b, whatsoever things are c, whatsoever things are d, whatsoever things are e, f things are of good report; if there be any g, and if there be any praise, h on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and a, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your a of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye b opportunity.
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be a.
12 I know both how to be a, 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 through a which b me.
14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did a with my affliction.
15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire a that may abound to your account.
18 But I have all, and a: I am full, having received of b the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
19 But my God shall supply all your a according to his b in glory by Christ Jesus.
20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.
22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of a household.
23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
