Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your graciousness[a] be known to everyone. The Lord is near.(A) Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses(B) all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.(C)

Finally[b] brothers and sisters, whatever is true,(D) whatever is honorable,(E) whatever is just,(F) whatever is pure,(G) whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence(H) and if there is anything praiseworthy—dwell on these things. Do what you have learned and received(I) and heard from me, and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.
