Philippians 4
King James Bible: Purple Letter Edition
1Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved. 2I beseech Euodia, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 3And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellow workers {fellow-laborers}, whose names are in the book of life.

4Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6Be anxious {careful} for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do; and the God of peace shall be with you.

10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; of which ye were also mindful {careful}, but ye lacked opportunity. 11Not that I speak in respect of want; for I have learned, in whatever {whatsoever} state I am, in this {therewith} to be content. 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound; everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ, Who strengtheneth me. 14Notwithstanding, ye have well done, that ye did share {communicate} with my affliction. 15Now ye Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared {communicated} with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. 17Not because I desire a gift; but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18But I have all, and abound. I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God. 19But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20Now unto God and our Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

21Greet {Salute} every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you. 22All the saints greet {salute} you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household. 23The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
