1So then, my brothers, for whom I cherish love and longing, my joy and crown, this is how you must stand firm in the Lord, O my beloved.

2I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord.

3And you, my true comrade, lend a hand to these women, I beg of you; they have fought at my side in the active service of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow-workers, whose names are in the book of life.

4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again, 'rejoice.'

5Let your forbearance be known to everyone; the Lord is at hand.

6Never be anxious, but always make your requests known to God in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving;

7so shall God's peace, that surpasses all our dreams, keep guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

8Finally, brothers, keep in mind whatever is true, whatever is worthy, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is attractive, whatever is high-toned, all excellence, all merit.

9Practise also what you have learned and received from me, what you heard me say and what you saw me do; then the God of peace will be with you.

10It was a great joy to me in the Lord that your care for me could revive again; for what you lacked was never the care but the chance of showing it.

11Not that I complain of want, for I have learned how to be content wherever I am.

12I know how to live humbly; I also know how to live in prosperity. I have been initiated into the secret for all sorts and conditions of life, for plenty and for hunger, for prosperity and for privations.

13In him who strengthens me I am able for anything.

14But you were kind enough to take your share in my trouble.

15You Philippians are well aware that in the early days of the gospel, when I had left Macedonia, no church but yourselves had any financial dealings with me;

16even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent money more than once for my needs.

17It is not the money I am anxious for; what I am anxious for is the interest that accumulates in this way to your divine credit!

18Your debt to me is fully paid and more than paid! I am amply supplied with what you have sent by Epaphroditus, a fragrant perfume, the sort of sacrifice that God approves and welcomes.

19My God will supply all your own needs from his wealth in Glory in Christ Jesus.

20Glory to God our Father for ever and ever: Amen.

21Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers beside me salute you.

22All the saints salute you, especially the Imperial slaves.

23The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
