The Epistle Of Paul The Apostle To The Philippians

John Bunyan at the CrossPhilippians 1:1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the
saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:

Philippians 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from
the Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

Philippians 1:4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request
with joy,

Philippians 1:5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun
a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Philippians 1:7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because
I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and
confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.

Philippians 1:8 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in
the bowels of Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more
in knowledge and in all judgment;

Philippians 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may
be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;

Philippians 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by
Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Philippians 1:12 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things
which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the

Philippians 1:13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace,
and in all other places;

Philippians 1:14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by
my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

Philippians 1:15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some
also of good will:

Philippians 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely,
supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

Philippians 1:17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the
defence of the gospel.

Philippians 1:18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence,
or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will

Philippians 1:19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through
your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

Philippians 1:20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in
nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also
Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Philippians 1:22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour:
yet what I shall choose I wot not.

Philippians 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to
depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

Philippians 1:24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

Philippians 1:25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and
continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;

Philippians 1:26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ
for me by my coming to you again.

Philippians 1:27 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;

Philippians 1:28 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.

Philippians 1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only
to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Philippians 1:30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear
to be in me.

Philippians 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any
comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

Philippians 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same
love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in
lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Philippians 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on
the things of others.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be
equal with God:

Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the
form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and
became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a
name which is above every name:

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things
in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Philippians 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in
my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation
with fear and trembling.

Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do
of his good pleasure.

Philippians 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

Philippians 2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God,
without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye
shine as lights in the world;

Philippians 2:16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the
day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Philippians 2:17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of
your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

Philippians 2:18 For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.

Philippians 2:19 But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly
unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.

Philippians 2:20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for
your state.

Philippians 2:21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus

Philippians 2:22 But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the
father, he hath served with me in the gospel.

Philippians 2:23 Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall
see how it will go with me.

Philippians 2:24 But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come

Philippians 2:25 Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my
brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and
he that ministered to my wants.

Philippians 2:26 For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness,
because that ye had heard that he had been sick.

Philippians 2:27 For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy
on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon

Philippians 2:28 I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see
him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.

Philippians 2:29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and
hold such in reputation:

Philippians 2:30 Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not
regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.

Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same
things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

Philippians 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the

Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the
spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

Philippians 3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any
other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

Philippians 3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the
tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

Philippians 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the
righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for

Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the
excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered
the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness,
which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the
righteousness which is of God by faith:

Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and
the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

Philippians 3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the

Philippians 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already
perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am
apprehended of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this
one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth
unto those things which are before,

Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling
of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded:
and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto

Philippians 3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk
by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which
walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

Philippians 3:18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell
you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

Philippians 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and
whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look
for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned
like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even
to subdue all things unto himself.

Philippians 4:1 Therefore, my brethren, dearly beloved and longed for, my
joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.

Philippians 4:2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the
same mind in the Lord.

Philippians 4:3 And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women
which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my
fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

Philippians 4:5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall
keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:8 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.

Philippians 4:9 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.

Philippians 4:10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last
your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye
lacked opportunity.

Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in
whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound:
every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be
hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Philippians 4:14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate
with my affliction.

Philippians 4:15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the
gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as
concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

Philippians 4:16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my

Philippians 4:17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may
abound to your account.

Philippians 4:18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of
Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a
sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever.

Philippians 4:21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are
with me greet you.

Philippians 4:22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of
Caesar's household.

Philippians 4:23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
