Philippians 1

 1 Paul and Timothy, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, together with the bishops and deacons:

 2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
 3 I thank my God in every remembrance of you,
 4  In every prayer of mine for you, always making requests with joy,
 5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
 6 Being confident of this very thing, that he who has begun a good work in you will continue it until the day of Jesus Christ.
 7 It is right for me to think this of you, because I have you in my heart; since both in my imprisonment and out in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you are all partakers of my grace.
 8 For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you in the affection of Jesus Christ.
 9 And this I pray, that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and in all judgment [discernment];
 10 So that you may discern the things that are excellent; that you may be pure and without offence until the day of Christ,
 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
 12 But I want you to understand, brothers, that the things that have happened to me have served to advance the gospel;
 13 So that it is evident to the palace guard and all others, that my imprisonment is for Christ.
 14 And many of the brothers in the Lord, being confident because of my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
 15 Some indeed do preach Christ out of envy and rivalry; but others out of goodwill.
 16 The former preach Christ from contention, not sincerely, supposing they can add distress to my bonds;
 17 But the other from love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel.
 18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and I rejoice in it, yes, and will continue to rejoice,
 19 For I know that through your prayers and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, this will turn out for my deliverance,
 20 That according to my earnest expectation and my hope, I will not be ashamed in anything, but that with all boldness, as always, Christ will be magnified in my body, whether it be by life or by death.
 21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
 22 If I live in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; so I cannot say what I would choose.
 23 For I am torn between the two: I have a desire to depart and be with Christ; which is far better;
 24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you.
 25 Being convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you for the promotion and joy of your faith;
 26 So that in me your rejoicing may have abundant cause to overflow in Jesus Christ, through my coming to you again.
 27 Only let your conduct be as becomes the gospel of Christ; that whether I come and see you, or am absent, I may hear that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.
 28 And do not be terrified by your adversaries in anything; for this is an evident sign to them of their of destruction, but to you a sign of salvation, and that from God.
 29 For it is given to you on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for his sake;
 30 Being engaged in the same conflict that you saw me have, and now hear is mine still.

Philippians 2

1 If therefore there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercies,
 2 Fulfil my joy, by being of the same purpose, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vain conceit; but in lowliness of mind let each one esteem the other better than themselves.
4  Let every man look not only to his own interest, but also to the interests of others.
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus;
6 Who, though He was one with God and in the form of God, did not think this equality with God was something to be retained [held fast];
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon himself the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.
8 And being found in the likeness of man, he humbled himself further, and became obedient to death, even the death of the cross!
9 Therefore God has highly exalted him, and given him a name that is above every name;
10 So that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven and things in earth and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
13 For it is God who brings forth in you, both the desire, and the work according to his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without grumbling and disputing;
15 So that you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding fast [treasuring] the word of life; so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run or labored in vain.
17 Yes, and even if my life is poured out as a sacrifice and service to your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.
18 So all of you, rejoice with me also for the same reason.
19  I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly so that I may be comforted when I know your state.
20 For I have no man so like-minded, who will genuinely care for your welfare.
21 For everyone seeks after their own interests, not the things that are Jesus Christ's.
22 But you know the proven worth of him, that, like a son with his father he has served with me in the gospel.
23  I therefore hope to send him presently, as soon as I see how it will go with me.
24 But I trust in the Lord that I myself will also come shortly.
25 Yet I consider it necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother and companion in labor and fellow soldier, who is your messenger and has ministered to my needs.
26 For he longs for you all, and was full of heaviness because you had heard that he had been sick.
27 For indeed he was sick near to death, but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
28 Therefore I send him all the more eagerly, so that when you see him again, you may rejoice, and that I may be less sorrowful.
29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold such men in high regard;
 30 Because he was near death for the work of Christ, not regarding his life, to complete your service toward me.
Philippians 3

  1 Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. It is not grievous to me to write the same things to you again, and is for your safety.

 2 Beware of [Judiazer] dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of those who mutilate the flesh [circumcision].

 3 For we are the true circumcision, who worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

 4 Though I myself might have reason for confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinks that he has the right to trust in the flesh, I have more.

 5 Circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

 6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; according to the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

 7 But whatever things were previously valuable to me, I consider as loss for Christ's sake.

 8 Yes without doubt, I count all things as loss compared to the surpassing excellence of the knowing Christ Jesus my Lord; for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and consider them as dung, that I may win Christ,

 9 And be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness that is from God by faith;

 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable to his death;

 11 In order that I may attain to the resurrection of [out from] the dead.

 12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect, but I press on, so that I may apprehend that for which I am apprehended by Christ Jesus.

 13 Brethren, I do not consider myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do: forgetting those things that are past, and reaching forth to those things that are ahead, [From the Word of the Lord within: "Once you have expressed sorrow over the past, it is redundant to bring it up again. Forget the feelings of having past failed. Through guilt you can become entangled again. Forgetting what lies behind, we press onward."]

 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

 15 Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, be thus minded; and if in anything you are otherwise minded, God will reveal this to you.

 16 Nevertheless, to where we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

 17 Brothers, be followers of me, and observe those who walk after the pattern we have set, so as to have us for an example.

 18 For many walk, of whom I have often told you, and now tell you weeping, who are the enemies of the cross of Christ;

 19 Their end is destruction, their God is their belly [appetites, lusts], and whose glory is their shame, who think on earthly things.

 20 For our citizenship is in heaven [having been translated there]; from where we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

 21 Who will change our vile body, so that it is transformed to be like his glorious body, according to the working by which he is able to subdue all things to himself.
Philippians 4

 1 Therefore, my dearly beloved and longed for brothers, my joy and crown, stand fast in the Lord.

 2 I beseech Euodias, and Syntyche, to be of the same mind in the Lord.

 3 And I entreat you also, true yoke fellows, to help these women who have labored with me in the gospel, with Clement and others of my fellow laborers whose names are in the book of life.

 4 Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice.

 5 Let your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is [near] at hand.

 6 Be concerned about nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

 7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

 8 Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think on these things.

 9 Put into practice what you have learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me; and the God of peace will be with you.

 10 But I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that now, at last, your care for me has flourished again; you were indeed concerned before but you lacked the opportunity to show it.

 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned to be content in whatever state I am.

 12 I know both how to be in need, and how to have plenty; everywhere and in all things I am instructed both how to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

 14 Nevertheless you have done well to have shared in my affliction.

 15 Now you Philippians also know that in the beginning of the gospel ministry, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you.

 16 For even in Thessalonica you sent aid again and again for my necessities.

 17 Not that I want a gift, but because I seek fruit that will be credited to your account.

 18  I have all I need and an abundance. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things that were sent by you, a sweet smelling odor of a sacrifice that is acceptable and well pleasing to God.

 19 And my God will supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

 20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

 21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you.

 22 All the saints salute you, chiefly those who are of Caesar's household.

 23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
