  • 1Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
  • 2If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
  • 3Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
  • 4Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
  • 5Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
  • 6Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
  • 7Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
  • 8But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
  • 9And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
  • 10Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
  • 11That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
  • 12And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
  • 13Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
  • 15Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
  • 16That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
  • 17Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
  • 18Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.
  • 19For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.
  • 20But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.
  • 21For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.
  • 22For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.
  • 23But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.
  • 24Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me.
  • 25But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.
  • 26Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants.
  • 27For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he had been sick.
  • 28For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
  • 29I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.
  • 30Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold such in reputation:
