- Paul and Timotheus, bondmen of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with [the] overseers and ministers;
- grace to you, and peace from God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ.
- I thank my God for my whole remembrance of you,
- constantly in my every supplication, making the supplication for you all with joy,
- because of your fellowship with the gospel, from the first day until now;
- having confidence of this very thing, that he who has begun in you a good work will complete it unto Jesus Christ's day:
- as it is righteous for me to think this as to you all, because ye have *me* in your hearts, and that both in my bonds and in the defence and confirmation of the glad tidings ye are all participators in my grace.
- For God is my witness how I long after you all in [the] bowels of Christ Jesus.
- And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in full knowledge and all intelligence,
- that ye may judge of and approve the things that are more excellent, in order that ye may be pure and without offence for Christ's day,
- being complete as regards the fruit of righteousness, which [is] by Jesus Christ, to God's glory and praise.
- But I would have you know, brethren, that the circumstances in which I am have turned out rather to the furtherance of the glad tidings,
- so that my bonds have become manifest [as being] in Christ in all the praetorium and to all others;
- and that the most of the brethren, trusting in [the] Lord through my bonds, dare more abundantly to speak the word of God fearlessly.
- Some indeed also for envy and strife, but some also for good will, preach the Christ.
- These indeed out of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the glad tidings;
- but those out of contention, announce the Christ, not purely, supposing to arouse tribulation for my bonds.
- What is it then? at any rate, in every way, whether in pretext or in truth, Christ is announced; and in this I rejoice, yea, also I will rejoice;
- for I know that this shall turn out for me to salvation, through your supplication and [the] supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ;
- according to my earnest expectation and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but in all boldness, as always, now also Christ shall be magnified in my body whether by life or by death.
- For for me to live [is] Christ, and to die gain;
- but if to live in flesh [is my lot], this is for me worth the while: and what I shall choose I cannot tell.
- But I am pressed by both, having the desire for departure and being with Christ, [for] [it is] very much better,
- but remaining in the flesh [is] more necessary for your sakes;
- and having confidence of this, I know that I shall remain and abide along with you all, for your progress and joy in faith;
- that your boasting may abound in Christ Jesus through me by my presence again with you.
- Only conduct yourselves worthily of the glad tidings of the Christ, in order that whether coming and seeing you, or absent, I may hear of what concerns you, that ye stand firm in one spirit, with one soul, labouring together in the same conflict with the faith of the glad tidings;
- and not frightened in anything by the opposers, which is to them a demonstration of destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God;
- because to you has been given, as regards Christ, not only the believing on him but the suffering for him also,
- having the same conflict which ye have seen in me, and now hear of in me.

- If then [there be] any comfort in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of [the] Spirit, if any bowels and compassions,
- fulfil my joy, that ye may think the same thing, having the same love, joined in soul, thinking one thing;
- [let] nothing [be] in the spirit of strife or vain glory, but, in lowliness of mind, each esteeming the other as more excellent than themselves;
- regarding not each his own [qualities], but each those of others also.
- For let this mind be in you which [was] also in Christ Jesus;
- who, subsisting in the form of God, did not esteem it an object of rapine to be on an equality with God;
- but emptied himself, taking a bondman's form, taking his place in [the] likeness of men;
- and having been found in figure as a man, humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, and [that the] death of [the] cross.
- Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and granted him a name, that which is above every name,
- that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of heavenly and earthly and infernal [beings],
- and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord to God [the] Father's glory.
- So that, my beloved, even as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much rather in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,
- for it is God who works in you both the willing and the working according to [his] good pleasure.
- Do all things without murmurings and reasonings,
- that ye may be harmless and simple, irreproachable children of God in the midst of a crooked and perverted generation; among whom ye appear as lights in [the] world,
- holding forth [the] word of life, so as to be a boast for me in Christ's day, that I have not run in vain nor laboured in vain.
- But if also I am poured out as a libation on the sacrifice and ministration of your faith, I rejoice, and rejoice in common with you all.
- In like manner do *ye* also rejoice, and rejoice with me.
- But I hope in [the] Lord Jesus to send Timotheus to you shortly, that *I* also may be refreshed, knowing how ye get on.
- For I have no one like-minded who will care with genuine feeling how ye get on.
- For all seek their own things, not the things of Jesus Christ.
- But ye know the proof of him, that, as a child a father, he has served with me in the work of the glad tidings.
- Him therefore I hope to send immediately, as soon as I shall see how it goes with me:
- but I trust in [the] Lord that I myself also shall soon come;
- but I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow-workman and fellow-soldier, but your messenger and minister to my need,
- since he had a longing desire after you all, and was distressed because ye had heard that he was sick;
- for he was also sick close to death, but God had mercy on him, and not indeed on him alone, but also on me, that I might not have sorrow upon sorrow.
- I have sent him therefore the more diligently, that seeing him ye might again rejoice, and that *I* might be the less sorrowful.
- Receive him therefore in [the] Lord with all joy, and hold such in honour;
- because for the sake of the work he drew near even to death, venturing his life that he might fill up what lacked in your ministration toward me.
