Philippians 1

1:1 Paul and Timotheus the seruants of Iesus Christ, to all the Saints in Christ Iesus, which are at Philippi, with the Bishops and Deacons: 1:2 Grace be vnto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Iesus Christ. 1:3 I thanke my God vpon euery remembrance of you, 1:4 Alwayes in euery prayer of mine for you all making request, with ioy 1:5 For your felowship in the Gospel from the first day vntill now; 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you, will performe it vntil the day of Iesus Christ: 1:7 Euen as it is meete for mee to thinke this of you all, because I haue you in my heart, in as much as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the Gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace. 1:8 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all, in the bowels of Iesus Christ. 1:9 And this I pray, that your loue may abound yet more & more in knowledge, and in all iudgment. 1:10 That ye may approue things that are excellent, that ye may be sincere, and without offence till the day of Christ. 1:11 Being filled with the fruites of righteousnesse, which are by Iesus Christ vnto the glory and praise of God. 1:12 But I would yee should vnderstand brethren, that the things which happened vnto mee, haue fallen out rather vnto the furtherance of the Gospel. 1:13 So that my bonds in Christ, are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places. 1:14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident, by my bonds, are much more bold to speake the word without feare. 1:15 Some in deed preach Christ, euen of enuie and strife, and some also of good will. 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not syncerely, supposing to adde affliction to my bonds: 1:17 But the other of loue, knowing that I am set for the defence of the Gospel. 1:18 What then Notwithstanding euery way, whether in pretence, or in trueth: Christ is preached, and I therein doe reioyce, yea, and will reioyce. 1:19 For I know that this shall turne to my saluation through your prayer, and the supplie of the spirit of Iesus Christ, 1:20 According to my earnest expectation, and my hope, that in nothing I shalbe ashamed: but that with all boldnes, as alwayes, so now also Christ shal be magnified in my body, whether it be by life or by death. 1:21 For to me to liue is Christ, and to die is gaine. 1:22 But if I liue in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shal chuse, I wote not. 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, hauing a desire to depart, & to bee with Christ, which is farre better. 1:24 Neuertheles, to abide in the flesh, is more needfull for you. 1:25 And hauing this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all, for your furtherance and ioy of faith, 1:26 That your reioycing may bee more abundant in Iesus Christ for me, by my comming to you againe. 1:27 Onely let your conuersation bee as it becommeth the Gospel of Christ, that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may heare of your affaires, that yee stand fast in one spirit, with one minde, striuing together for the faith of the Gospel, 1:28 And in nothing terrified by your aduersaries, which is to them an euident token of perdition: but to you of saluation, and that of God. 1:29 For vnto you it is giuen in the behalfe of Christ, not onely to beleeue on him, but also to suffer for his sake, 1:30 Hauing the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now heare to be in me.
