Phillipians 1


Phi 1:1 Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons:
Phi 1:2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Phi 1:3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
Phi 1:4 always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all,
Phi 1:5 in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now.
Phi 1:6 For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
Phi 1:7 For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me.
Phi 1:8 For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.
Phi 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment,
Phi 1:10 so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ;
Phi 1:11 having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Phi 1:12 Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel,
Phi 1:13 so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else,
Phi 1:14 and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear.
Phi 1:15 Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will;
Phi 1:16 the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel;
Phi 1:17 the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment.
Phi 1:18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice,
Phi 1:19 for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
Phi 1:20 according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.
Phi 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Phi 1:22 But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose.
Phi 1:23 But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better;
Phi 1:24 yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake.
Phi 1:25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith,
Phi 1:26 so that your proud confidence in me may abound in Christ Jesus through my coming to you again.
Phi 1:27 Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
Phi 1:28 in no way alarmed by your opponents"which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God.
Phi 1:29 For to you it has been granted for Christ's sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
Phi 1:30 experiencing the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

Phi 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: Phi 1:1 Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons: Phi 1:1 παῦλος καὶ τιμόθεος δοῦλοι χριστοῦ ἰησοῦ πᾶσιν τοῖς ἁγίοις ἐν χριστῶ ἰησοῦ τοῖς οὗσιν ἐν φιλίπποις σὺν ἐπισκόποις καὶ διακόνοις·
Phi 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Phi 1:2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Phi 1:2 χάρις ὑμῖν καὶ εἰρήνη ἀπὸ θεοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν καὶ κυρίου ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ.
Phi 1:3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Phi 1:3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, Phi 1:3 εὐχαριστῶ τῶ θεῶ μου ἐπὶ πάσῃ τῇ μνείᾳ ὑμῶν,
Phi 1:4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, Phi 1:4 always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, Phi 1:4 πάντοτε ἐν πάσῃ δεήσει μου ὑπὲρ πάντων ὑμῶν μετὰ χαρᾶς τὴν δέησιν ποιούμενος,
Phi 1:5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; Phi 1:5 in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. Phi 1:5 ἐπὶ τῇ κοινωνίᾳ ὑμῶν εἰς τὸ εὐαγγέλιον ἀπὸ τῆς πρώτης ἡμέρας ἄχρι τοῦ νῦν,
Phi 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: Phi 1:6 For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. Phi 1:6 πεποιθὼς αὐτὸ τοῦτο, ὅτι ὁ ἐναρξάμενος ἐν ὑμῖν ἔργον ἀγαθὸν ἐπιτελέσει ἄχρι ἡμέρας χριστοῦ ἰησοῦ·
Phi 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. Phi 1:7 For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me. Phi 1:7 καθώς ἐστιν δίκαιον ἐμοὶ τοῦτο φρονεῖν ὑπὲρ πάντων ὑμῶν, διὰ τὸ ἔχειν με ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ ὑμᾶς, ἔν τε τοῖς δεσμοῖς μου καὶ ἐν τῇ ἀπολογίᾳ καὶ βεβαιώσει τοῦ εὐαγγελίου συγκοινωνούς μου τῆς χάριτος πάντας ὑμᾶς ὄντας.
Phi 1:8 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ. Phi 1:8 For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. Phi 1:8 μάρτυς γάρ μου ὁ θεός, ὡς ἐπιποθῶ πάντας ὑμᾶς ἐν σπλάγχνοις χριστοῦ ἰησοῦ.
Phi 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; Phi 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, Phi 1:9 καὶ τοῦτο προσεύχομαι, ἵνα ἡ ἀγάπη ὑμῶν ἔτι μᾶλλον καὶ μᾶλλον περισσεύῃ ἐν ἐπιγνώσει καὶ πάσῃ αἰσθήσει,
Phi 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. Phi 1:10 so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; Phi 1:10 εἰς τὸ δοκιμάζειν ὑμᾶς τὰ διαφέροντα, ἵνα ἦτε εἰλικρινεῖς καὶ ἀπρόσκοποι εἰς ἡμέραν χριστοῦ,
Phi 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. Phi 1:11 having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Phi 1:11 πεπληρωμένοι καρπὸν δικαιοσύνης τὸν διὰ ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ εἰς δόξαν καὶ ἔπαινον θεοῦ.
Phi 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 gospel; Phi 1:12 Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, Phi 1:12 γινώσκειν δὲ ὑμᾶς βούλομαι, ἀδελφοί, ὅτι τὰ κατ᾽ ἐμὲ μᾶλλον εἰς προκοπὴν τοῦ εὐαγγελίου ἐλήλυθεν,
Phi 1:13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places; Phi 1:13 so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else, Phi 1:13 ὥστε τοὺς δεσμούς μου φανεροὺς ἐν χριστῶ γενέσθαι ἐν ὅλῳ τῶ πραιτωρίῳ καὶ τοῖς λοιποῖς πάσιν,
Phi 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. Phi 1:14 and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear. Phi 1:14 καὶ τοὺς πλείονας τῶν ἀδελφῶν ἐν κυρίῳ πεποιθότας τοῖς δεσμοῖς μου περισσοτέρως τολμᾶν ἀφόβως τὸν λόγον λαλεῖν.
Phi 1:15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: Phi 1:15 Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will; Phi 1:15 τινὲς μὲν καὶ διὰ φθόνον καὶ ἔριν, τινὲς δὲ καὶ δι᾽ εὐδοκίαν τὸν χριστὸν κηρύσσουσιν·
Phi 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: Phi 1:16 the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel; Phi 1:16 οἱ μὲν ἐξ ἀγάπης, εἰδότες ὅτι εἰς ἀπολογίαν τοῦ εὐαγγελίου κεῖμαι,
Phi 1:17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. Phi 1:17 the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment. Phi 1:17 οἱ δὲ ἐξ ἐριθείας τὸν χριστὸν καταγγέλλουσιν, οὐχ ἁγνῶς, οἰόμενοι θλῖψιν ἐγείρειν τοῖς δεσμοῖς μου.
Phi 1:18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. Phi 1:18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice, Phi 1:18 τί γάρ; πλὴν ὅτι παντὶ τρόπῳ, εἴτε προφάσει εἴτε ἀληθείᾳ, χριστὸς καταγγέλλεται, καὶ ἐν τούτῳ χαίρω· ἀλλὰ καὶ χαρήσομαι,
Phi 1:19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, Phi 1:19 for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, Phi 1:19 οἶδα γὰρ ὅτι τοῦτό μοι ἀποβήσεται εἰς σωτηρίαν διὰ τῆς ὑμῶν δεήσεως καὶ ἐπιχορηγίας τοῦ πνεύματος ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ,
Phi 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. Phi 1:20 according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. Phi 1:20 κατὰ τὴν ἀποκαραδοκίαν καὶ ἐλπίδα μου ὅτι ἐν οὐδενὶ αἰσχυνθήσομαι, ἀλλ᾽ ἐν πάσῃ παρρησίᾳ ὡς πάντοτε καὶ νῦν μεγαλυνθήσεται χριστὸς ἐν τῶ σώματί μου, εἴτε διὰ ζωῆς εἴτε διὰ θανάτου.
Phi 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Phi 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Phi 1:21 ἐμοὶ γὰρ τὸ ζῆν χριστὸς καὶ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν κέρδος.
Phi 1:22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. Phi 1:22 But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. Phi 1:22 εἰ δὲ τὸ ζῆν ἐν σαρκί, τοῦτό μοι καρπὸς ἔργου· καὶ τί αἱρήσομαι οὐ γνωρίζω.
Phi 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: Phi 1:23 But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better; Phi 1:23 συνέχομαι δὲ ἐκ τῶν δύο, τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν ἔχων εἰς τὸ ἀναλῦσαι καὶ σὺν χριστῶ εἶναι, πολλῶ [γὰρ] μᾶλλον κρεῖσσον·
Phi 1:24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. Phi 1:24 yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. Phi 1:24 τὸ δὲ ἐπιμένειν [ἐν] τῇ σαρκὶ ἀναγκαιότερον δι᾽ ὑμᾶς.
Phi 1:25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; Phi 1:25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith, Phi 1:25 καὶ τοῦτο πεποιθὼς οἶδα ὅτι μενῶ καὶ παραμενῶ πᾶσιν ὑμῖν εἰς τὴν ὑμῶν προκοπὴν καὶ χαρὰν τῆς πίστεως,
Phi 1:26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again. Phi 1:26 so that your proud confidence in me may abound in Christ Jesus through my coming to you again. Phi 1:26 ἵνα τὸ καύχημα ὑμῶν περισσεύῃ ἐν χριστῶ ἰησοῦ ἐν ἐμοὶ διὰ τῆς ἐμῆς παρουσίας πάλιν πρὸς ὑμᾶς.
Phi 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; Phi 1:27 Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; Phi 1:27 μόνον ἀξίως τοῦ εὐαγγελίου τοῦ χριστοῦ πολιτεύεσθε, ἵνα εἴτε ἐλθὼν καὶ ἰδὼν ὑμᾶς εἴτε ἀπὼν ἀκούω τὰ περὶ ὑμῶν, ὅτι στήκετε ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι, μιᾷ ψυχῇ συναθλοῦντες τῇ πίστει τοῦ εὐαγγελίου,
Phi 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. Phi 1:28 in no way alarmed by your opponents"which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God. Phi 1:28 καὶ μὴ πτυρόμενοι ἐν μηδενὶ ὑπὸ τῶν ἀντικειμένων, ἥτις ἐστὶν αὐτοῖς ἔνδειξις ἀπωλείας, ὑμῶν δὲ σωτηρίας, καὶ τοῦτο ἀπὸ θεοῦ·
Phi 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; Phi 1:29 For to you it has been granted for Christ's sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, Phi 1:29 ὅτι ὑμῖν ἐχαρίσθη τὸ ὑπὲρ χριστοῦ, οὐ μόνον τὸ εἰς αὐτὸν πιστεύειν ἀλλὰ καὶ τὸ ὑπὲρ αὐτοῦ πάσχειν,
Phi 1:30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me. Phi 1:30 experiencing the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear to be in me. Phi 1:30 τὸν αὐτὸν ἀγῶνα ἔχοντες οἷον εἴδετε ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ νῦν ἀκούετε ἐν ἐμοί.
