Berean Literal Bible
Stand Firm in the Lord
1Therefore my brothers, beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, beloved.
2I exhort Euodia and I exhort Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3Yes, and I ask you, true yokefellow, help these women who labored together with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.
4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is near.
6Be anxious about nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, surpassing all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Think on These Things
8Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is venerable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if any excellence and if any praise—think on these things. 9And what you have learned and have received and have heard and have seen in me, practice these things. And the God of peace will be with you.
The Generosity of the Philippians
10But I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that now at last you have revived the caring for me, wherein also you were concerned, but you were lacking opportunity. 11Not that I speak as to destitution, for I have learned to be content in that which I am. 12I know also how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In everything, and in all things, I have learned the secret also to be full and to hunger, also to abound and to be deficient. 13I have strength for all things in the One strengthening me.
14But you did well, having fellowship in my affliction. 15And you Philippians also know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I came out from Macedonia, not one church had partnership with me with regard to the matter of giving and receiving, except you alone. 16For even in Thessalonica, both once and twice, you sent for my needs.
17Not that I seek after the gift, but I seek after the fruit abounding to your account. 18But I have all things, and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things from you, an odor of a sweet smell, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.
19And my God will fill up all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20Now to our God and Father be the glory to the ages of the ages. Amen.
21Greet every saint in Christ Jesus.
The brothers with me greet you.
22All the saints greet you, and especially those of the household of Caesar.
23The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.a
