Philippians 421st Century King James Version (KJ21)
4 Therefore, my dearly beloved and longedfor brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
2 I beseech Euodias and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.
3 And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women who labored with me in the Gospel, with Clement also and with my other fellow laborers, whose names are in the Book of Life.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, “Rejoice!”
5 Let your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Fret not about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things which ye have both learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace shall be with you.
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me hath flourished again; though ye always cared, ye lacked opportunity.
11 Not that I speak in respect to want, for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me.
14 Notwithstanding, ye have done well that ye participated in my affliction.
15 Now ye Philippians know also that in the beginning of the Gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
16 For even in Thessalonica, ye sent time and again unto my needs.
17 Not that I desire a gift, but I desire the fruit that may abound to your account.
18 But I have all, and abound; I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, a sweet fragrance, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God.
19 But my God shall supply all your need, according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you.
22 All the saints salute you, chiefly those who are of Caesar’s household.
23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
