2I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. (Php 2:2)3Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life. (Lu 10:20)4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. (Php 3:1)5Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; (Jas 5:8)6do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Pr 16:3; Mt 6:25; Ro 1:8)7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Isa 26:3; Joh 14:27; Eph 3:19; Php 4:9; Col 3:15)8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.9What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. (Ro 15:33; Php 3:17; Php 4:7; 1Th 4:1)
10I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. (2Co 11:9; Php 2:30)11Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. (2Co 9:8; 1Ti 6:6; 1Ti 6:8; Heb 13:5)12I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. (1Co 4:11; 2Co 11:9; 2Co 11:27)13I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (2Co 12:9; Eph 3:16; 1Ti 1:12)14Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. (Php 1:7; Re 1:9)15And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. (2Co 11:8; Php 1:5)16Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again.17Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit. (Ro 1:13; 2Co 9:5; Tit 3:14)18I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. (Ge 8:21; Php 2:25; Heb 13:16)19And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Ps 23:1; Ro 2:4; 2Co 9:8)20To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. (Ro 11:36; Ga 1:4; Ga 1:5; 1Th 1:3; 1Th 3:11; 1Th 3:13)
21Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me greet you. (Ga 1:2)22All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar’s household. (2Co 13:13)23The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. (Ro 16:20)

Closing Appeal for Steadfastness and Unity
1Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!2I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord.3Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life.
4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.6Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.8Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Thanks for Their Gifts
10I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.11I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.13I can do all this through him who gives me strength.14Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.15Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only;16for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid more than once when I was in need.17Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account.18I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.19And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.20To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
21Greet all God’s people in Christ Jesus. The brothers and sisters who are with me send greetings.22All God’s people here send you greetings, especially those who belong to Caesar’s household.23The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
King James Version
1Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.2I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.3And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.4Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, 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.9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.15Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.17Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.18But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.20Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.21Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.22All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.23The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

1My brothers and sisters, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord's strength. I love you and long for you. Dear friends, you are my joy and my crown.
Do What Is Best
2Here is what I'm asking Euodia and Syntyche to do. I want them to agree with each other because they belong to the Lord.3My true companion, here is what I ask you to do. Help those women. They have served at my side. They have helped me spread the good news. So have Clement and the rest of those who have worked together with me. Their names are all written in the Book of Life.4Always be joyful because you belong to the Lord. I will say it again. Be joyful.5Let everyone know how gentle you are. The Lord is coming soon.6Don't worry about anything. Instead, tell God about everything. Ask and pray. Give thanks to him.7Then God's peace will watch over your hearts and your minds because you belong to Christ Jesus. God's peace can never be completely understood.8Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things.9Do what you have learned or received or heard from me. Follow my example. The God who gives peace will be with you.
Paul Gives Thanks for Help Received
10At last you are concerned about me again. That makes me very happy. We belong to the Lord. I know that you have been concerned. But you had no chance to show it.11I'm not saying that because I need anything. I have learned to be content no matter what happens to me.12I know what it's like not to have what I need. I also know what it's like to have more than I need. I have learned the secret of being content no matter what happens. I am content whether I am well fed or hungry. I am content whether I have more than enough or not enough.13I can do everything by the power of Christ. He gives me strength.14But it was good of you to share in my troubles.15And you believers at Philippi know what happened when I left Macedonia. Not one church helped me in the matter of giving and receiving. You were the only one that did. That was in the early days when you first heard the good news.16Even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me help when I needed it. You did it again and again.17I'm not looking for a gift. I'm looking for what is best for you.18I have received my full pay, and even more than that. I have everything I need. That's because Epaphroditus brought me the gifts you sent. They are a sweet‑smelling offering. They are a gift that God accepts. He is pleased with it.19My God will meet all your needs. He will meet them in keeping with his wonderful riches that come to you because you belong to Christ Jesus.20Give glory to our God and Father for ever and ever. Amen.
21Greet all of God's people. They belong to Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me send greetings.22All of God's people here send you greetings. Most of all, those who live in the palace of Caesar send you greetings.23May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
