Exhortation, Encouragement, and Prayer

I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to (A)agree in the Lord. Yes, I ask you also, true companion,[a] help these women, who have labored[b] side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, (B)whose names are in the book of life.

(C)Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness[c] be known to everyone. (D)The Lord is at hand; (E)do not be anxious about anything, (F)but in everything by prayer and supplication (G)with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And (H)the peace of God, (I)which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned[d] and (J)received and heard and seen (K)in me—practice these things, and (L)the God of peace will be with you.
