Philippians 1:27-2:2 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

27 Only live ye worthily to the gospel of Christ, that whether when I come and see you, either absent I hear of you [or absent I shall hear of you], that ye stand in one spirit of one will, travailing together to the faith of the gospel.

28 And in nothing be ye afeared of adversaries, which is to them cause of perdition, but to you a cause of health. And this thing is of God.

29 For it is given to you for Christ, that not only ye believe in him, but also that ye suffer for him;

30 having the same strife, which ye saw in me, and now ye have heard of me.

Therefore if any comfort is in Christ, if any solace of charity, if any fellowship of Spirit, if any inwardness of mercy doing [if any entrails of mercy doing],

fill ye my joy, that ye understand the same thing, and have the same charity, of one will, and feel the same thing; [fulfill ye my joy, that ye understand the same thing, having the same charity, of one will, feeling the same thing;]

Philippians 1:27-2:2 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

27 Only be sure that you live worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may yet hear of you that you continue in one spirit and in one soul, labouring as we do to maintain the faith of the gospel – 28 and in nothing fearing your adversaries, which is to them a sign of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. 29 For to you it is given not only to believe on Christ, but also to suffer for his sake, 30 and to have even the same fight which you saw me have and now hear of me.

He exhorts them to unite in brotherly love, and to beware of rivalry and vainglory. For a trustworthy example, he sets Christ before them.

If there is among you any consolation in Christ, if there is any comforting love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if there is any compassion or mercy, fulfil my joy and all draw one way, having one love and being of one accord and of one mind.

Philippians 1:27-2:2 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

27 [a]Only let your conversation be as it becometh the Gospel of Christ, that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your matters, that ye [b]continue in one spirit, and in one mind, fighting together through the faith of the Gospel.

28 [c]And in nothing fear your adversaries, which is to them a token of perdition, and to you of salvation, and that of God.

29 [d]For unto you it is given for Christ, that not only ye should believe in him, but also suffer for his sake,

30 [e]Having the same fight, which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

1 He exhorteth them above all things, 3 to humility,  6 and that by the example of Christ. 19 He promiseth to send Timothy shortly unto them, 26 and excuseth the long tarrying of Epaphroditus.

[f]If there be therefore any consolation in [g]Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any [h]compassion and mercy,

Fulfill my joy, that ye be like minded, having the [i]same love, being of one accord, and of one judgment,

  1. Philippians 1:27 Having set down those things before, in manner of a Preface, he descendeth now to exhortations, warning them first of all, to consent both in doctrine and mind, and afterward, that being thus knit together with those common bands, they continue through the strength of faith to bear all adversity in such sort, that they admit nothing unworthy the profession of the Gospel.
  2. Philippians 1:27 The word signifieth, to stand fast, and it is proper to wrestlers, that stand fast, and shrink not a foot.
  3. Philippians 1:28 We ought not to be discouraged, but rather encouraged by the persecutions which the enemies of the Gospel imagine and practice against us: seeing that they are certain witnesses from God himself, both of our salvation, and of the destruction of the wicked.
  4. Philippians 1:29 He proveth that his saying, that persecution is a token of our salvation, because it is a gift of God to suffer for Christ, which gift he bestoweth upon his own, as he doth the gift of faith.
  5. Philippians 1:30 Now he showeth for what purpose he made mention of his afflictions.
  6. Philippians 2:1 A most earnest request to remove all those things, whereby that great and special consent and agreement is commonly broken, to wit, contention and pride, whereby it cometh to pass, that they separate themselves one from another.
  7. Philippians 2:1 Any Christian comfort.
  8. Philippians 2:1 If any feeling of inward love.
  9. Philippians 2:2 Like love.

Philippians 1:27-2:2 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 and in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. 29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; 30 having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
