All for Christ


1 Finally, my brethren, arejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.
2 aBeware of dogs, beware of bevil workers, cbeware of the mutilation!

rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
4 though aI also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I bmore so:
5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, aof the tribe of Benjamin, ba Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, ca Pharisee;
6 concerning zeal, apersecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
7 But awhat things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss afor the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ
9 and be found in Him, not having amy own righteousness, which is from the law, but bthat which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;
10 that I may know Him and the apower of His resurrection, and bthe fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
11 if, by any means, I may aattain1 to the resurrection from the dead.

Pressing Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already aattained,1 or am already bperfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have 1apprehended; but one thing I do, aforgetting those things which are behind and breaching forward to those things which are ahead,
14 aI press toward the goal for the prize of bthe upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Therefore let us, as many as are amature, bhave this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, cGod will reveal even this to you.
16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already 1attained, alet us walk bby the same 2rule, let us be of the same mind.

Our Citizenship in Heaven

17 Brethren, ajoin in following my example, and note those who so walk, as byou have us for a pattern.
18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are athe enemies of the cross of Christ:
19 awhose end is destruction, bwhose god is their belly, and cwhose glory is in their shame— dwho set their mind on earthly things.
20 For aour citizenship is in heaven,

1 Therefore, my beloved and alonged-for brethren, bmy joy and crown, so cstand fast in the Lord, beloved.

Be United, Joyful, and in Prayer

2 I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche ato be of the same mind in the Lord.
3 1And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who alabored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in bthe Book of Life.
4 aRejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your 1gentleness be known to all men. aThe Lord is at hand.
6 aBe anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with bthanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
7 and athe peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Meditate on These Things

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are atrue, whatever things are bnoble, whatever things are cjust, dwhatever things are pure, whatever things are elovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy— meditate on these things.
9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and athe God of peace will be with you.

Philippian Generosity

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last ayour1 care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity.
11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, ato be content:
12 aI know how to 1be abased, and I know how to 2abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things athrough 1Christ who strengthens me.
14 Nevertheless you have done well that ayou shared in my distress.
15 Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel,

12 a1 Cor. 4:11 1live humbly 2live in prosperity 13 aJohn 15:5 1NU Him who 14 aPhil. 1:7

when I departed from Macedonia, ano church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only.
16 For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities.
17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek athe fruit that abounds to your account.
18 Indeed I 1have all and abound. I am full, having received from aEpaphroditus the things sent from you, ba sweet-smelling aroma, can acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God.

20 aNow to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Greeting and Blessing

21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren awho are with me greet you.
22 All the saints greet you, but especially those who are of Caesar’s household.
23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with 1you all. Amen.

Man’s Treachery and God’s Constancy

To the Chief Musician. aOn 1an eight-stringed harp. A Psalm of David.

1 HELP,1 LORD, for the godly man aceases! For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
2 aThey speak idly everyone with his neighbor; With flattering lips and 1a double heart they speak.

3 May the LORD 1cut off all flattering lips, And the tongue that speaks 2proud things,

6 The words of the LORD are apure words, Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven times.
7 You shall keep them, O LORD, You shall preserve them from this generation forever.

8 The wicked prowl on every side, When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
