New American Standard Bible
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, (A)whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is [a]lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9 As for the things you have learned and received and heard and seen (B)in me, practice these things, and (C)the God of peace will be with you.
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last (D)you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked an opportunity to act. 11 Not that I speak [b]from need, for I have learned to be [c](E)content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 I know how to get along with little, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going (F)hungry, both of having abundance and (G)suffering need. 13 I can do all things [d]through Him who (H)strengthens me. 14 Nevertheless, you have done well to (I)share with me in my difficulty.
15 You yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the [e](J)first preaching of the gospel, after I left (K)Macedonia, no church (L)shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving except you alone; 16 for even in (M)Thessalonica you sent a gift more than once for my needs. 17 (N)Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek the [f]profit which increases to your account. 18 But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am [g]amply supplied, having received from (O)Epaphroditus [h]what you have sent, [i](P)a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. 19 And (Q)my God will supply [j]all your needs according to His (R)riches in glory in Christ Jesus.Read full chapter
