Philippians 4
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Rejoice in the Lord

1Therefore, my brethren, dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, thus stand ye in the Lord, dearly beloved.

2I beseech Euodias, and I beseech Syntyche, to think the same in the Lord. 3And I also ask thee, worthy yoke fellow, aid those women who fought in company with me in the good news, and with Clement, and the rest of my co-workers, whose names in the book of life.

4Rejoice in the Lord always: again say I, Do ye rejoice. 5Let your fitness be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6Rave anxiety about nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with gratitude let your desires be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, surpassing all understanding, shall watch your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8As to the rest, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever venerable, whatever just, whatever pure, whatever lovely, whatever prosperous; if any ability, and if any praise, reckon up these things. 9And what things ye learned, and received, and heard, and saw in me, these do; and the God of peace shall be with you.

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

10And I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that once already ye recovered new vigor; for thinking of me, upon whom ye were thinking, and ye had not time. 11Not that I speak concerning want; for I have learned, among whom I am, to be satisfied with my condition. 12And I know how to be humble, and I know how to abound in every thing: and in all I am instructed also to be full and to hunger, and to abound and to be in want. 13I am strong for all things in Christ strengthening me. 14But ye did well, participating together in my pressure.

15And ye also know, Philippians, that in the beginning of the good news, when I went out from Macedonia, no church participated with me in the word of donation and accepting, except ye alone. 16For also in Thessalonica, and once, and twice, ye sent to my necessity. 17Not that I covet a gift: but I covet fruit abounding to your word. 18And I have all, and abound: I have been filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things from you, a smell of sweet odor, a sacrifice acceptable, pleasing to God. 19And God will fill up all your need according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20And to God and our Father the glory for the times of times. Amen.

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

21Greet ye every one holy in Christ Jesus. The brethren with me greet you. 22All the holy greet you, and chiefly they from Caesar's house.

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