| ||King James Bible||Young's Literal Translation|
||I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
||I give thanks to my God upon all the remembrance of you, |
||Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,
||always, in every supplication of mine for you all, with joy making the supplication, |
||For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
||for your contribution to the good news from the first day till now, |
||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:
||having been confident of this very thing, that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform `it' till a day of Jesus Christ,|
||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.
||according as it is righteous for me to think this in behalf of you all, because of my having you in the heart, both in my bonds, and `in' the defence and confirmation of the good news, all of you being fellow-partakers with me of grace.|
||For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.
||For God is my witness, how I long for you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ, |
||And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
||and this I pray, that your love yet more and more may abound in full knowledge, and all judgment, |
||That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
||for your proving the things that differ, that ye may be pure and offenceless -- to a day of Christ, |
||Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
||being filled with the fruit of righteousness, that `is' through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.|
||But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;
||And I wish you to know, brethren, that the things concerning me, rather to an advancement of the good news have come, |
||So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places;
||so that my bonds have become manifest in Christ in the whole praetorium, and to the other places -- all, |
||And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
||and the greater part of the brethren in the Lord, having confidence by my bonds, are more abundantly bold -- fearlessly to speak the word. |
||Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:
||Certain, indeed, even through envy and contention, and certain also through good-will, do preach the Christ; |
||The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
||the one, indeed, of rivalry the Christ do proclaim, not purely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds, |
||But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
||and the other out of love, having known that for defence of the good news I am set: |
||What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
||what then? in every way, whether in pretence or in truth, Christ is proclaimed -- and in this I rejoice, yea, and shall rejoice. |
||For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
||For I have known that this shall fall out to me for salvation, through your supplication, and the supply of the Spirit of Christ Jesus, |
||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.
||according to my earnest expectation and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, and in all freedom, as always, also now Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether through life or through death, |
||For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
||for to me to live `is' Christ, and to die gain.|
||But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.
||And if to live in the flesh `is' to me a fruit of work, then what shall I choose? I know not;|
