Youngs Literal Translation
||Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
||Paul and Timotheus, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with overseers and ministrants;
||Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
||Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
||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;
||For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
||for I am pressed by the two, having the desire to depart, and to be with Christ, for it is far better,
||Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.
||and to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account,
||And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;
||and of this being persuaded, I have known that I shall remain and continue with you all, to your advancement and joy of the faith,
||That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.
||that your boasting may abound in Christ Jesus in me through my presence again to you.
||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;
||Only worthily of the good news of the Christ conduct ye yourselves, that, whether having come and seen you, whether being absent I may hear of the things concerning you, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one soul, striving together for the faith of the good news,
||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.
||and not terrified in anything by those opposing, which to them indeed is a token of destruction, and to you of salvation, and that from God;
||For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
||because to you it was granted, on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in him, but also on behalf of him to suffer;
||Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
||the same conflict having, such as ye saw in me, and now hear of in me.
