1My fellow believers, I love you, and I long for you. You make me happy MTY, and I am ◄proud of/pleased with► you. Dear friends, on the basis of all that I have told you, continue to believe firmly in the Lord doing what I have just taught you.
2I urge you(sg), Euodia, and I urge you(sg), Syntyche, to again have a peaceful relationship with each other, because you both have a relationship with the Lord.
3And, my faithful comrade/partner, I request that you (sg) help them to again have a peaceful relationship with each other, because they have faithfully proclaimed the message about Christ together with me, even though many people have opposed us (exc). They have faithfully proclaimed that message together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book in which God has written the names of all those people who will live forever.
4Because you have a relationship with the Lord, always rejoice! I'm saying it again, rejoice!
5Act in such a way that everyone can know that you are gentle. The Lord is coming soon.
6Do not worry about anything. Instead, in every situation, pray to God, tell him what you need, and ask him to help you DOU. Also thank him for what he does for you.
7As a result, God will enable you not to worry about anything MTY (OR, God will protect your minds in every way) PRS. That is, he will cause you to have inner peace because you have a relationship with Christ Jesus. You will not be able to understand PRS how you can be so peaceful in such difficult circumstances!!
8My fellow believers, there is one more thing I want you to do. Whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is right, whatever is morally pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is admirable, whatever is good, whatever deserves praise, those are the things that you should continually think about.
9Those things that I have taught you and that you have learned from me, those things that you have heard me say and that you have seen me do, those are the things that you yourselves should continually do. As a result of your doing those things, God, the one who causes us to have inner peace, will ◄be with/bless► you.
10I rejoice greatly and thank the Lord because now, after some time, by sending money to me you have once again shown that you are concerned about me EUP. Indeed, you were concerned about me all the time, but you had no opportunity to show that you were concerned about me.
11I am saying this not because I am concerned that I lack things that I need. In fact, I have learned to be content in whatever situation I am.
12Specifically, I know how to be content when I do not have what I need, and I know how to be content when I have plenty. I have learned how to be content in any and every situation DOU. Specifically, I have learned how to be content when I have enough to eat, and I have learned how to be content when I do not have enough to eat. I have learned how to be content when I have plenty DOU of what I need, and I have learned how to be content when I lack things.
13I am able ◄to cope with/to handle► every situation because Christ gives me the strength to do that.
14Nevertheless, you did very well by helping me (OR, giving me money) EUP while I have been suffering hardship.
15My friends there at Philippi, you yourselves know that when I first proclaimed the message about Christ to you, and then left there to go to Macedonia province, you were the only group of believers LIT who sent me gifts EUP in order that I might proclaim that message to others just like I did for you.
16Even when I was in Thessalonica city, you sent money EUP to me two different times IDM in order to supply what I needed.
17I say this, not because I desire that you give me money now. Instead, I desire that God will abundantly bless MET you as a result of your helping me.
18But I have received a very generous gift EUP from you, and as a result, I have plenty. I have an abundant supply of what I need because I have received from Epaphroditus the money EUP that you sent to me. God considers that your gift is very acceptable, and he is very pleased with it. Your gift is like a nice-smelling sacrifice MET.
19Moreover, God, whom I serve, has an unlimited supply of everything that we(inc) need. And as a result, because of your relationship with Christ Jesus, he will completely supply everything that you need.
20So, praise God our Father forever and ever! Amen!
21Greet for me/us(exc) all of God's people there, that is, all those who have a relationship with Christ Jesus. The fellow believers who serve God together with me here send their greetings to you (OR, say they are thinking fondly of you).
22All of God's people here send their greetings to you. Especially the fellow believers who work in the palace of the emperor send their greetings to you.
23My desire is that our Lord Jesus Christ will continue to act kindly toward you all SYN.
