1So then, my brothers, beloved and longed-for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Master, beloved.
2I appeal to Euodia and I appeal to Suntuche to be of the same mind in the Master.
3And I also ask you, true companion, help these women who laboured with me in the Good News, with Qlemes also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.
4Rejoice in יהוה always, again I say, rejoice!
5Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Master is near.
6Do not worry at all, but in every matter, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Elohim.
7And the peace of Elohim, which surpasses all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Messiah יהושע.
8For the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is righteous, whatever is clean, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there is any uprightness and if there is any praise – think on these.
9And what you have learned and received and heard and saw in me, practise these, and the Elohim of peace shall be with you.
10And I rejoiced in יהוה greatly that now at last your concern for me has revived again – though you were concerned, but had no chance.
11Not that I speak concerning need, for I have learned to be content in whatever state I am.
12I know what it is to be humbled, and I know what it is to have in excess. In any and every situation I have learned both to be filled, and to be hungry, both to have in excess, and to be in need.
13I have strength to do all, through Messiah#See John 15:5; 2Cor. 3:5, 6; 2Cor. 12:9; Eph. 3:20; Philip. 2:13; Heb. 13:20, 21; 1John 4:4 who empowers me.
14Yet you did well in sharing in my pressure.
15And you know too, Philippians, that in the beginning of the Good News, when I went out from Makedonia, no assembly shared with me concerning giving and receiving, except you only,
16because, even in Thessalonike you sent to my need, once and twice.
17Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that is multiplying to your account.
18Indeed I have all and more than enough. I have been filled, having received from Epaphroditos what you sent, a sweet-smelling fragrance,# Exo. 29:18#See 2Cor. 2:14, 15; Eph. 5:2 an acceptable offering, well-pleasing to Elohim.
19And my Elohim shall fill all your need according to His riches in esteem by Messiah יהושע.
20And to our Elohim and Father be esteem forever and ever. Amĕn.
21Greet every set-apart one in Messiah יהושע. The brothers with me greet you.
22All the set-apart ones greet you, but most of all those of Caesar’s household.
23The favour of our Master יהושע Messiah be with you all. Amĕn.
