King James Bible

1:3 
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
 
1:4 
Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,
 
1:5 
For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
 
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:
 
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.
 
1:8 
For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.
 
1:9 
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
 
1:10 
That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
 
1:11 
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
 
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;
 
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 speak the word without fear.
 
1:15 
Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:
 
1:16 
The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
 
1:17 
But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
 
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.
 
1:19 
For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
 
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.
 
1:21 
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
 
1:22 
But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.
