Chapter One
Phil. 1:1 [An epistle] from Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons:

Phil. 1:2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Phil. 1:3 I thank my God at every memory of you,

Phil. 1:4 always praying with joy in my every prayer for all of you

Phil 1:5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,

Phil. 1:6 while being confident of this very thing that he [God] who began a good work in you will bring it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Phil. 1:7 It is right for me to think this way about all of you because I have had you in my heart since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you are all partners with me of God’s grace.

Phil 1:8 For God is my witness that I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.

Phil. 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound even more and more in real [applicable] knowledge and all discernment,

Phil. 1:10 so that you can determine what is best so that you may be genuine and blameless on the day of Christ,

Phil. 1:11 having been filled with the fruit of righteousness
which comes through Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God.

Phil. 1:12 Now I want you to know, brethren, that the things that have happened to me have turned out to advance the gospel

Phil. 1:13 so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole imperial guard and to everyone else,

Phil. 1:14 and that most of the brethren having confidence in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have dared to speak without fear the word of God.

Phil. 1:15 Some, for sure, are preaching Christ because of envy and strife but some from good-will;

Phil. 1:16 the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel;

Phil. 1:17 the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition
not from pure motives while thinking they can cause distress for me in my imprisonment.

Phil. 1:18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed and in this I rejoice,

Phil. 1:19 for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

Phil. 1:20 according to my eager expectation and hope that in no thing will I be ashamed but with total boldness, Christ will be exalted in my body as always and now whether through life or death.

Phil. 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Phil. 1:22 Now if I live on in the flesh [body], this [means] fruitful labor to me, yet I do not know which to prefer.

Phil. 1:23 I am torn between the two, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is much better;

Phil. 1:24 but it is more necessary to remain in the flesh [body] for your sake [spiritual advancement].

Phil. 1:25 Since I am convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith,

Phil. 1:26 so that your boasting [proud confidence] may increase because of me in Christ Jesus, through my coming to you again.

Phil. 1:27 Live as those worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I hear that you are standing firm in one spirit, striving together for the faith of the gospel

Phil. 1:28 and in no way being intimidated by your opponents which is an indicator of destruction for them but an indicator of your salvation and this too [indicator] is from God.

Phil. 1:29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him,

Phil. 1:30 experiencing the same struggle which you saw with me and now hear in [about] me.

Chapter Two

Phil. 2:1 Therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion,

Phil. 2:2 make my joy complete by being of the same mind, united in spirit, having the same love, having one purpose.

Phil 2:3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;

Phil. 2:4 not looking out for your own interests [person] but for the interest of others [persons].

Phil. 2:5 Be thinking this way among yourselves which [attitude] was also in Christ Jesus:

Phil. 2:6 Who although he existed in the form of God
did not regard as equality with God
as something to be held on to,

Phil. 2:7 but emptied himself by taking on the form of a slave, being made in the likeness of men and found in the appearance of a man

Phil. 2:8 He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Phil. 2:9 Therefore, God highly exalted him and graciously gave him the name that is above every name,

Phil. 2:10 that at the name of [that belongs to] Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

Phil. 2:11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Phil. 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed not only in my presence but even more in my absence,
work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Phil. 2:13 For it is God who is working [enabling, energizing] in you [plural], both the desire and the enablement for his good pleasure.

Phil. 2:14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing,

Phil. 2:15 so that you may become blameless and pure children of God without blemish though [living] in the middle of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.

Phil. 2:16 holding forth the word of life, so that on the day of Christ I will have reason to boast that I did not run in vain nor labor in vain.

Phil. 2:17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and rejoice together with all of you.

Phil. 2:18 And in the same way, you also rejoice and rejoice together with me.

Phil. 2:19 Now I hope in the Lord Jesus to soon send Timothy to you so that I also may be encouraged having heard [the news] about you.

Phil. 2:20 For I have no one who is like-minded person who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare.

Phil 2:21 For they all seek their own interest, not those of Jesus Christ.

Phil. 2:22 But you know of his proven character, that like a son to a father, he served with me in the gospel.

Phil. 2:23 This one, therefore, I hope to send immediately as I see how things go with me;

Phil. 2:24 and I trust in the Lord that I myself also will be coming shortly.

Phil. 2:25 But I thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and servant to my need

Phil. 2:26 because he was longing for you all and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick.

Phil. 2:27 For indeed he was sick to the point of death, but God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me,
so that I may not have grief upon grief.

Phil. 2:28 Therefore I have sent him all the more eagerly so that when you see him again you may rejoice and I may be less anxious about you.

Phil. 2:29 So welcome him in the Lord with all joy and
hold men like him in high honor

Phil. 2:30 because of the work of Christ, he came up to the point of death, risking his life, so that he could complete what was deficient in your service to me.

Chapter Three
Phil. 3:1 Furthermore, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.

Phil. 3:2 Watch out for those dogs, watch out for the evil workers, watch out for mutilators of the flesh [circumcision]

Phil. 3:3 For we are the true [spiritual] circumcision, who serve in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and who put no confidence in the flesh,

Phil. 3:4 although I myself have good reason to put confidence even in the flesh. If someone else thinks they have reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more:

Phil. 3:5 circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee;

Phil. 3:6 as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, blameless.

Phil. 3:7 But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ.

Phil. 3:8 More than that, I count all things to be a loss
because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord for whom I lost all things, and count them as rubbish so that I may gain Christ,

Phil. 3:9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but through the faith of Christ, the righteousness from God by faith.

Phil. 3:10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;

Phil. 3:11 if someway I might obtain to the resurrection from the dead ones.

Phil. 3:12 Not that I have already attained this or have already become perfect but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.

Phil. 3:13 Brethren, I do not consider myself as having laid hold of it yet; but this one thing I do, forgetting the things that are behind and reaching towards the things that are ahead,

Phil. 3:14 I press on toward the goal of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Phil. 3:15 Therefore let those of us who are perfect [mature]
think this; and if you think another way, God will reveal this to you.

Phil. 3:16 However, let us live up to what we have attained, to the same, hold fast.

Phil. 3:17 Become joint imitators with me, brethren, and observe those who walk [live] in this way just as you have an example.

Phil. 3:18 For many walk of whom I have often told you
and now tell you with tears, those are enemies of the cross of Christ

Phil. 3:19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and glory in their shame, who keep thinking on earthy things.

Phil. 3:20 For our home state exists in heaven, from which place we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Phil. 3:21 who will transform the body of our humiliation
into the likeness of his glorious body according to the operational power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

Chapter Four
Phil. 4:1 Therefore my beloved brethren and longed for, also my joy and my crown, in this way, stand firm in the Lord, beloved.

Phil. 4:2 I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to think the same way in the Lord.

Phil. 4:3 Yes, and I also ask you true companion, help these women who have contended with me in the gospel together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow laborers, whose names are written in the book of life.

Phil. 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say, rejoice!

Phil. 4:5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is near.

Phil. 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Phil. 4:7 And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Phil. 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let you mind dwell on these things.

Phil. 4:9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Phil. 4:10 But I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me (and you were concerned before but you lacked opportunity to do anything).

Phil. 4:11 Not because I am saying this because (according to) of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.

Phil. 4:12 I know what it is to be humbled and I know what it is to have abundance. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry and to be in need.

Phil. 4:13 I am able to do all things through Him, who strengthens me.

Phil. 4:14 Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction

Phil. 4:15 And as you yourselves also know Philippians that at the beginning of the gospel ministry, when I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in this matter of giving and receiving except you alone.

Phil. 4:16 For even in Thessalonica you sent a gift more than once for my needs.

Phil. 4:17 Not that I am seeking a gift but I am seeking the credit that super increases to your account.

Phil. 4:18 I have received everything and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what was from you, a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.

Phil. 4:19 And my God will supply your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Phil. 4:20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Phil. 4:21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you.

Phil. 4:22 All the saints greet you, especially those who belong to Caesar’s household.

Phil. 4:23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
