Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus: To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons.
I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you,
But God, who comforts the humble, comforted us by the coming of Titus,
and not only by his coming, but also by the comfort he received from you. He announced to us your deep longing, your sorrow, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced even more.
When I was present with you and in need, I did not burden anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia supplied my needs. I have kept myself, and will keep myself, from burdening you in any way.
The one who is taught the message must share his goods with the teacher.
Will You not revive us again so that Your people may rejoice in You?
The people will return and live beneath his shade. They will grow grain and blossom like the vine. His renown will be like the wine of Lebanon.
by the message of truth, by the power of God; through weapons of righteousness on the right hand and the left,
Therefore, as we have opportunity, we must work for the good of all, especially for those who belong to the household of faith.
