THE EPISTLE OF PAUL TO THE PHILIPPIANS.
I. PAUL and Timothy, bondmen of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus that are at Philippi with bishops and deacons. ? Grace to you, and peace from God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank
God upon my whole remembrance of you, always in my every supplication for you all making the supplication with joy 5 for your fellowship with the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this very thing, that he who began in you a good work will complete [it] until [the] day of Jesus Christ ; ' even as it is righteous for me to think this of you all, because ye have me in your heart; and both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye are all fellow-partakers of my grace. For God is my witness, how I long after you
all in [the] bowels of Jesus Christ. And this I pray,
that your love may abound yet more and more in full knowledge and all intelligence, 10 that ye may approve the things that are excellent;* that ye may be pure and without offence against [the] day of Christ, 11 being filled with the fruit of righteousness that [is] by Jesus Christ unto God's praise and glory.
1 But I wish you to know, brethren, that my affairs have turned out rather for furtherance of the gospel, 13 so that my bonds have been manifest in Christ in the whole of the prætorium and to all the rest; 1 and that the most of the brethren in [the] Lord, being confident by my bonds, more abundantly dare to speak the word fearlessly. 15 Some, indeed, also for envy and strife, but some also for goodwill,
* Or, “prove the things that differ."
