Weymouth New Testament

Philippians 1:6 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Being confident (πεποιθὼς)
With a slightly causative force: since I am confident.
Hath begun - will perform (ἐναρξάμενος - ἐπιτελέσει)
The two words occur together, 2 Corinthians 8:6; Galatians 3:3. Both were used of religious ceremonials. So Euripides: "But come! Bring up the sacrificial meal-basket" (ἐξάρχου κανᾶ); that is, begin the offering by taking the barley-meal from the basket ("Iphigenia in Aulis," 435). Some find the sacrificial metaphor here, and compare Philippians 2:17, see note. Perform, better as Rev., perfect. Perform, in its older and literal sense of carrying through (per) or consummating would express the idea; but popular usage has identified it with do.

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,
holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
