The Epistle to the Philippians of the Christian Holy Bible

The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Philippians.

Philippians 1:1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to  all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the  bishops and deacons: 


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

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

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

Philippians 1:5 For your fellowship in the gospel  from the first day until now; 

Philippians 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: 

Philippians 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. 

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

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

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

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

Philippians 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; 

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

Philippians 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. 

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

The Phillipians

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

Philippians 1:17 But the  other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the  gospel. 

Philippians 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. 

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

Philippians 1:20 According to  my 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. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Philippians 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; 

Philippians 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. 

Philippians 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; 

Philippians 1:30 Having the same conflict  which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.  

Chapter 2

Philippians 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if  any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any  bowels and mercies, 
Philippians 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be  likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of  one mind. 
Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or  vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other  better than themselves. 
Philippians 2:4 Look not every man on his  own things, but every man also on the things of others.   
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ  Jesus: 
Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not  robbery to be equal with God: 
Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no  reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and  was made in the likeness of men: 
Philippians 2:8 And being found in  fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient  unto death, even the death of the cross. 
Philippians 2:9 Wherefore  God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name  which is above every name: 
Philippians 2:10 That at the name of  Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and  things in earth, and things under the earth; 
Philippians 2:11 And  that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is  Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  
Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always  obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in  my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and  trembling. 
Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both  to will and to do of his good pleasure. 
Philippians 2:14 Do all things  without murmurings and disputings: 
Philippians 2:15 That ye may be  blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in  the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye  shine as lights in the world; 
Philippians 2:16 Holding forth the word  of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not  run in vain, neither laboured in vain. 
Philippians 2:17 Yea, and if I be  offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy,  and rejoice with you all. 
Philippians 2:18 For the same cause also do  ye joy, and rejoice with me.  
Philippians 2:19 But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus  shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I  know your state. 
Philippians 2:20 For I have no man likeminded, who  will naturally care for your state. 
Philippians 2:21 For all seek their  own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s. 
Philippians 2:22 But ye  know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath  served with me in the gospel. 
Philippians 2:23 Him therefore I hope  to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with  me. 
Philippians 2:24 But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall  come shortly. 
Philippians 2:25 Yet I supposed it necessary to send to  you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour,  and fellow soldier, but your messenger, and he that  ministered to my wants. 
Philippians 2:26 For he longed after you all,  and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he  had been sick. 
Philippians 2:27 For indeed he was sick nigh unto  death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but  on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. 
Philippians 2:28 I  sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see him  again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.  
Philippians 2:29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness;  and hold such in reputation: 
Philippians 2:30 Because for the work of  Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to  supply your lack of service toward me. 

Chapter 3 
Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write  the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but  for you it is safe.  
Philippians 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of  the concision. 
Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which  worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and  have no confidence in the flesh. 
Philippians 3:4 Though I might also  have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that  he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 
Philippians 3:5  Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the    
tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching  the law, a Pharisee; 
Philippians 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the  church; touching the righteousness which is in the law,  blameless. 
Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I  counted loss for Christ. 
Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all  things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of  Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of  all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win  Christ, 
Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own  righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through  the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by  faith: 
Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his  resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being  made conformable unto his death; 
Philippians 3:11 If by any means I  might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 
Philippians 3:12 Not as  though I had already attained, either were already perfect:  but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which  also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 
Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I  count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing  I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and  reaching forth unto those things which are before, 
Philippians 3:14 I  press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of  God in Christ Jesus. 
Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be  perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise  minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 
Philippians 3:16  Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk  by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. 
Philippians 3:17  Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them  which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. 
Philippians 3:18 (For  many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell  you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross  of Christ: 
Philippians 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is  their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind  earthly things.) 
Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven;  from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus  Christ: 
Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may  be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the  working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto  himself.   

Chapter 4
Philippians 4:1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed  for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my  dearly beloved. 
Philippians 4:2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech  Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 
Philippians 4:3  And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women  which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also,  and with other my fellow labourers, whose names are in  the book of life. 
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and  again I say, Rejoice. 
Philippians 4:5 Let your moderation be known  unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for  nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with  thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all  understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through  Christ Jesus. 
Philippians 4:8 Finally, 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. 
Philippians 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and  received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of  peace shall be with you.  
Philippians 4:10 But 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. 
Philippians 4:11 Not that I  speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever  state I am, therewith to be content. 
Philippians 4:12 I 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. 
Philippians 4:13 I can do  all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 
Philippians 4:14  Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did  communicate with my affliction. 
Philippians 4:15 Now 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.   

Philippians 4:16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again  unto my necessity. 

Philippians 4:17 Not because I desire a gift: but I  desire fruit that may abound to your account. 

Philippians 4:18 But 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, well pleasing  to God. 

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need  according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

Philippians 4:20 Now  unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.  

Philippians 4:21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren  which are with me greet you. 

Philippians 4:22 All the saints salute  you, chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household.
