050: Philippians Book 50


050:Philippians 001:001
Paul and Timotheus,
the servants of Jesus Christ,
to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi,
with the bishops and deacons:


050:001:002
Grace be unto you,
and peace,
from God our Father,
and from the Lord Jesus Christ.


050:001:003
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,


050:001:004
Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,


050:001:005
For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;


050:001:006
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:


050:001:007
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.


050:001:008
For God is my record,
how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.


050:001:009
And this I pray,
that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;


050:001:010
That ye may approve things that are excellent;
that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ.


050:001:011
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness,
which are by Jesus Christ,
unto the glory and praise of God.


050:001:012
But I would ye should understand,
brethren,
that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;


050:001:013
So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace,
and in all other places;


050:001:014
And many of the brethren in the Lord,
waxing confident by my bonds,
are much more bold to speak the word without fear.


050:001:015
Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife;
and some also of good will:


050:001:016
The one preach Christ of contention,
not sincerely,
supposing to add affliction to my bonds:


050:001:017
But the other of love,
knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.


050:001:018
What then?
notwithstanding,
every way,
whether in pretence,
or in truth,
Christ is preached;
and I therein do rejoice,
yea,
and will rejoice.


050:001:019
For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer,
and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,


050:001:020
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.


050:001:021
For to me to live is Christ,
and to die is gain.


050:001:022
But if I live in the flesh,
this is the fruit of my labour:
yet what I shall choose I wot not.


050:001:023
For I am in a strait betwixt two,
having a desire to depart,
and to be with Christ;
which is far better:


050:001:024
Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.


050:001:025
And having this confidence,
I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;


050:001:026
That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.


050:001:027
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;


050:001:028
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.


050:001:029
For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ,
not only to believe on him,
but also to suffer for his sake;


050:001:030
Having the same conflict which ye saw in me,
and now hear to be in me.
