American Standard Version
Philippians, Chapter 4

   1: Wherefore, my brethren 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: Yea, I beseech thee also, true yokefellow, help these women, for they labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow-workers, 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 unto 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 unto God.
   7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
   8: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
   9: The things which ye both learned and received and heard and saw in me, these things do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
   10: But I rejoice in the Lord greatly, that now at length ye have revived your thought for me; wherein ye did indeed take thought, but ye lacked opportunity.
   11: Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therein to be content.
   12: I know how to be abased, and I know also how to abound: in everything and in all things have I 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 that strengtheneth me.
   14: Howbeit ye did well that ye had fellowship with my affliction.
   15: And ye yourselves also know, ye Philippians, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church had fellowship with me in the matter of giving and receiving but ye only;
   16: for even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my need.
   17: Not that I seek for the gift; but I seek for the fruit that increaseth to your account.
   18: But I have all things, and abound: I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things [that came] from you, and odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God.
   19: And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
   20: Now unto our God and Father [be] the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
   21: Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren that are with me salute you.
   22: All the saints salute you, especially they that are of Caesar's household.
   23: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
