Philippians 4
Anderson's New Testament Par ▾ 

Rejoice in the Lord

1So, then, my brethren, beloved and ardently desired, my joy and my crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my beloved.

2I beseech Euodia, and I beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 3Now I beseech you also, true yoke-fellow, to assist those women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and my other fellow-laborers, whose names are in the book of life.

4Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice. 5Let your gentleness be known to all men: the Lord is at hand. 6Be anxious about nothing, but in every thing, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God: 7and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

8Finally, brethren, 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, or any praise, think of these things. 9Do those things which you have learned and received, and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.

The Generosity of the Philippians
(2 Corinthians 8:1–15)

10I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at length your care for me has revived again; in this, indeed, you had me in mind, but you lacked opportunity. 11I do not speak in respect to want: for I have learned, in whatever condition I am, to be content. 12I know what it is to be in want, and what it is to have abundance. Everywhere and in all things, I have been fully instructed in being full and in being hungry, in having abundance and in being in want. 13I am able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me. 14Yet you have done well in contributing to the relief of my affliction.

15Now you Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church contributed to me so that I kept an account of giving and receiving, but you only. 16For even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent once and again to aid me in my need. 17Not that I seek a gift; but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18But I have all, and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus your gifts, a sweet odor, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God. 19But my God will supply all your need, according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20Now to God, even our Father, be glory from age to age. Amen.

Final Greetings
(Ephesians 6:21–24; 2 Timothy 4:19–22)

21Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren that are with me salute you. 22All the saints salute you, especially those who are of Caesar's household.

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