1 Wherefore, my brethren, beloved and tenderly-regarded, my joy and my crown, so stand in our Lord, my beloved.
2 Of Evhodia I beseech, and of Syntika, that one mind they have in our Lord.
3 Also of thee I beseech, my true yokefellow, to be helpful to those who are labouring with me in the gospel, with Klimis, and with the rest of my helpers, whose names are written in the book of life.
4 Rejoice in our Lord in all time, and again I say, Rejoice.
5 And let your meekness be known unto every man: our Lord is near.
6 For nothing be anxious; but in all time, with prayer and with supplication, let your requests be made known before Aloha:
7 And the peace of Aloha, which is greater than all knowledge, shall keep your hearts and your minds, through Jeshu Meshiha.
8 FINALLY, my brethren, those (things) which are true, and those which are honest, and those which are just, and those which are pure, and those which are lovely, and those which are laudable, and those (which are) works of praise and of celebration, these consider.
9 These which you have learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, these perform; and the God of peace will be with you.
10 But greatly do I rejoice in our Lord, that you have begun to care (again) for me, as also you were careful, but you have not had ability.
11 But I have not spoken because I have had need; for I have learned to make sufficient to me that which I have had.
12 I know (how) to be abased, I know also how to abound in all; and in every thing I am trained with sufficiency and with hunger, with abundance and with destitution:
13 for every thing I am empowered through the Meshiha who strengtheneth me.
14 Nevertheless, you have done well to communicate unto my afflictions.
15 Know also, you Philipisoyee, that in the commencement of the gospel, when I went forth from Makedunia, not one of the churches communicated to me in the account of receiving and giving, but you only.
16 For also to Thessalonika one time and twice to my necessity you sent.
17 Not because I seek the gift, but I seek that fruit may multiply unto you.
18 But I have received every thing, I abound; and am full; and I have accepted all that you sent me by Epaphroditos, a sweet fragrance and a sacrifice, acceptable, which pleaseth Aloha.
19 And my God shall supply all your necessity, according to his riches in the glory of Jeshu Meshiha.
20 To Aloha our Father be praise and glory to the age of ages. Amen.
21 Ask for the peace of all the saints who are in Jeshu the Meshiha. The brethren who are with me ask for your peace.
22 All the saints ask for your peace, especially those who are of the house of Caesar.
23 The grace of our Lord Jeshu the Meshiha be with you all. Amen.
