1:1

Greeting


1:1 Paul and Timothy, the slaves of Jesus Christ, to all the Saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:

1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving

1:3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

1:4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,

1:5 for your fellowship in the Gospel from the first day until now;

1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

1:7 even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the Gospel, ye all are partakers of my Grace.

1:8 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.

1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;

1:10 ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;

1:11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Paul's suffering in prison

1:12 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the Gospel;

1:13 so that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;

1:14 and many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

1:15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:

1:16 the one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

1:17 but the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the Gospel.

1:18 What then? Notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

1:19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

1:20 according to mine earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by Life, or by death.

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

1:22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.

1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

1:24 nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

1:25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;

1:26 your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.

Be steadfast in suffering

1:27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the Gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one Spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the Gospel;

1:28 and in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for His sake;
