Philippian Generosity

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
10I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.10I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity.10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity.10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.10I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that once again you renewed your care for me. You were, in fact, concerned about me but lacked the opportunity to show it.
11I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.11Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.11Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.11I don't say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.12I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.12I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.12I 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.12I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content--whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need.
13I can do all this through him who gives me strength.13I can do all things through him who strengthens me.13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.13I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.

14Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.14Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble.14Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction.14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.14Still, you did well by sharing with me in my hardship.
15Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only;15And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only.15You yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first preaching of the gospel, after I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone;15Now 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.15And you Philippians know that in the early days of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving except you alone.
16for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid more than once when I was in need.16Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again.16for even in Thessalonica you sent a gift more than once for my needs.16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.16For even in Thessalonica you sent gifts for my need several times.
17Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account.17Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit.17Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.17Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.17Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the profit that is increasing to your account.
18I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.18I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God.18But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.18But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.18But I have received everything in full, and I have an abundance. I am fully supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you provided--a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.
