1: Paul and Timotheus, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with overseers and ministrants; 2: Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3: I give thanks to my God upon all the remembrance of you, 4: always, in every supplication of mine for you all, with joy making the supplication, 5: for your contribution to the good news from the first day till now, 6: having been confident of this very thing, that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform [it] till a day of Jesus Christ, 7: according as it is righteous for me to think this in behalf of you all, because of my having you in the heart, both in my bonds, and [in] the defence and confirmation of the good news, all of you being fellow-partakers with me of grace. 8: For God is my witness, how I long for you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ, 9: and this I pray, that your love yet more and more may abound in full knowledge, and all judgment, 10: for your proving the things that differ, that ye may be pure and offenceless -- to a day of Christ, 11: being filled with the fruit of righteousness, that [is] through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. 12: And I wish you to know, brethren, that the things concerning me, rather to an advancement of the good news have come, 13: so that my bonds have become manifest in Christ in the whole praetorium, and to the other places -- all, 14: and the greater part of the brethren in the Lord, having confidence by my bonds, are more abundantly bold -- fearlessly to speak the word. 15: Certain, indeed, even through envy and contention, and certain also through good-will, do preach the Christ; 16: the one, indeed, of rivalry the Christ do proclaim, not purely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds, 17: and the other out of love, having known that for defence of the good news I am set: 18: what then? in every way, whether in pretence or in truth, Christ is proclaimed -- and in this I rejoice, yea, and shall rejoice. 19: For I have known that this shall fall out to me for salvation, through your supplication, and the supply of the Spirit of Christ Jesus, 20: according to my earnest expectation and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, and in all freedom, as always, also now Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether through life or through death, 21: for to me to live [is] Christ, and to die gain. 22: And if to live in the flesh [is] to me a fruit of work, then what shall I choose? I know not; 23: for I am pressed by the two, having the desire to depart, and to be with Christ, for it is far better, 24: and to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account, 25: and of this being persuaded, I have known that I shall remain and continue with you all, to your advancement and joy of the faith, 26: that your boasting may abound in Christ Jesus in me through my presence again to you. 27: Only worthily of the good news of the Christ conduct ye yourselves, that, whether having come and seen you, whether being absent I may hear of the things concerning you, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one soul, striving together for the faith of the good news, 28: and not terrified in anything by those opposing, which to them indeed is a token of destruction, and to you of salvation, and that from God; 29: because to you it was granted, on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in him, but also on behalf of him to suffer; 30: the same conflict having, such as ye saw in me, and now hear of in me.
