Filipenses 4

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

2 I exhort Euodia, and I exhort Syntyche, to be of the same mind in the Lord.

3 Yes, I urge you also, true yokefellow, help these women, for they struggled with me in the good news, with Clement also, and the rest of my coworkers, whose names are in the Book of Life.

4 Rejoice in the Lord always: again I will say, Rejoice.

5 Let your{+} forbearance be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

6 In nothing be anxious; 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 guard your{+} hearts and your{+} thoughts in 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 The things which you{+} both learned and received and heard and saw in me, participate in these things: and the God of peace will be with you{+}.

10 But I rejoice in the Lord greatly, that now at length you{+} have revived your{+} thought for me; in which you{+} did indeed take thought, but you{+} lacked opportunity.

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, to be content in it.

12 I know how to be abased, and I know also how to abound: in everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in want.

13 I can do all things in him who strengthens me.

14 Nevertheless you{+} did well that you{+} had fellowship with my affliction.

15 And you{+} yourselves also know, you{+} Philippians, that in the beginning of the good news, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you{+} only;

16 for even in Thessalonica you{+} sent once and again to my need.

17 Not that I seek for the gift; but I seek for the fruit that increases to your{+} account.

18 But I have all things, and abound: I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things [that came] from you{+}, an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God.

19 And my God will supply every need of yours{+} according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

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

21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you{+}.

22 All the saints greet you{+}, especially those who are of Caesar's household.

23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your{+} spirit.
