To all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippos, with the bishops, and deacons.

1:2 grace to you and peace of God our Father, and of the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with you and peace from God our father, and from the lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with you, and peace from God our Father, & from the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3 I do thankings to my God in all mind of you I thank my god with all remembrance of you, I thank my God having you in perfect memory, I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
1:4 evermore in all my prayers for all you with joy, and make beseeching always in my prayers for you all, and pray with gladness, (Always in all my prayers for all you, praying with gladness) Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request, with joy,
1:5 on your communing in the gospel of Christ, from the first day unto now; because of the fellowship which ye have in the gospel from the first day unto now, Because of the fellowship which ye have in the Gospel, from the first day unto now. For your fellowship in the Gospel from the first day until now;
1:6 trusting this same thing, that he that began in you a good work, shall perform it till into the day of Jesus Christ. and am surely certified of this, that he which began a good work in you shall perform it until the day of Jesus Christ, And I am persuaded of this same thing that he that hath begun this good work in you, will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ, 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 As it is just to me to feel this thing for you all, for that I have you in heart, and in my bonds, and in defending and confirming of the gospel, that all ye be fellows of my joy. as it becometh me so to judge of you all, because I have you in my heart, and have you also every one companions of grace with me, even in my bonds as I defend, and stablish the gospel. As it becometh me so to judge of you all because I have you in remembrance that both in my bands, and in my defense, and confirmation of the Gospel you all were partakers of my grace. 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 a witness to me, how I covet you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ. God beareth me record how greatly I long after you all from the very heart root in Jesus Christ. For God is my record, how I long after you all from the very heart root in Jesus Christ. For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all, in the bowels of Jesus Christ.
1:9 And this thing I pray, that your charity be plenteous more and more in science, and in all wit; And this I pray, that your love may increase more and more in knowledge, and in all feeling, And this I pray, that your love may abound, yet more and more in knowledge, and in all judgement, And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more & more in knowledge and in all judgment.
1:10 that ye prove the better things, that ye be clean and without offence in the day of Christ; that ye might accept things most excellent, that ye might be pure and such as should hurt no man’s conscience, until the day of Christ, That ye may discern things that differ one from another, that ye may be pure, and without offence, until the day of Christ, That ye may approve things that are excellent, that ye may be sincere, and without offence till the day of Christ.
1:11 full-filled with the fruit of rightwiseness by Jesus Christ, into the glory and praising of God. filled with the fruits of rightwiseness, which fruits come by Jesus Christ unto the glory and laud of God. Filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ unto the glory and praise of God. Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ unto the glory and praise of God.
1:12 For, brethren, I will that ye know, that the things that be about me have come more to the profit of the gospel, I would ye understood brethren that my business is happened unto the greater furthering of the gospel. I would ye understood, brethren, that the things which have come unto me, are turned rather to the furthering of the Gospel, 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 were made known in Christ, in each moot hall, and in all other places; So that my bonds in Christ are manifest throughout all the judgement hall: and in all other places, So that my bands in Christ are famous throughout all the judgement hall, and in all other places, So that my bonds in Christ, are manifest in all the palace, and in all other places.
1:14 that more of the brethren in the Lord trusting in my bonds, more plenteously durst without dread speak the word of God. in so much that many of the brethren in the lord are boldened through my bonds, and dare more largely speak the word without fear. Insomuch that many of the brethren in the Lord are boldened through my bands, and dare more frankly speak the word. 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 But some for envy and strife, some for good will, preach Christ; Some there are which preach Christ of envy and strife, and some of good will. Some preach Christ even through envy and strife, and some also of good will. Some indeed preach Christ, even of envy and strife, and some also of good will.
1:16 Forsooth some of contention, shew Christ not cleanly, guessing them to raise tribulation to my bonds. The one part preacheth Christ of strife, and not purely, supposing to add more adversity to my bonds. The one part preacheth Christ of contention & not purely, supposing to add more affliction to my bands. The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
1:17 And some of charity, witting that I am put in the defence of the gospel. The other part of love, because they see that I am set to defend the gospel. But the others of love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the Gospel. But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the Gospel.
1:18 What soothly? the while on all manner, either by contention, either by truth, Christ is shewed; and in this thing I have joy, but also I shall have joy. What thing is this? Notwithstanding by all manner-ways, whether it be by occasion or of truth, yet Christ is preached: and therefore I joy. Yea and will joy. What then? yet Christ is preached all manner ways, whether it be under a pretence, or sincerely: and I therein joy: yea, and will joy. 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 And I know, that this thing shall come to me into health by your prayer, and the under-ministering of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, For I know that this shall be for my health, through your prayer, and ministering of the spirit of Jesus Christ, For I know that this shall turn to my salvation, through your prayer, & by the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the spirit of Jesus Christ,
1:20 after mine abiding and hope. For in nothing I shall be ashamed, but in all trust as evermore and now, Christ shall be magnified in my body, either by life, either by death. as I heartily look for and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed: but that with all confidence, as always in times past, even so now Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be through life, or else death. As I heartily look for, and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all confidence, as all ways, so now Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life or by death. 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 winning. For Christ is to me life, and death is to me advantage. For Christ is to me both in life, and in death advantage. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
1:22 That if to live in flesh, this is fruit of work to me, and what I shall choose, I know not. If it chance me to live in the flesh, that is to me fruitful for to work, and what to choose I wot not. And whether to live in the flesh were profitable for me, and what to choose I know not. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose, I wot not.
1:23 Forsooth I am constrained of two things, having desire to be dissolved, and to be with Christ, it is much more better; I am constrained of two things: I desire to be loosed, and to be with Christ, which thing is best of all: For I am greatly in doubt on both sides, desiring to be loosed and to be with Christ, which is best of all. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, & to be with Christ, which is far better.
1:24 but to dwell in flesh, is needful for you. Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. Nevertheless, to abide in the flesh, is more needful for you. Nevertheless, to abide in the flesh, is more needful for you.
1:25 And I trusting this thing, know that I shall dwell, and perfectly dwell to all you, to your profit and joy of faith, And this am I sure of, that I shall abide, and with you all continue, for the furtherance and joy of your faith, And this am I sure of, that I shall abide, and with you all continue, for your furtherance and joy of your faith, And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all, for your furtherance and joy of faith,
1:26 that your thanking abound in Christ Jesus in me, by my coming again to you. that ye may more abundantly rejoice in Jesus Christ through me, by my coming to you again. That ye may more abundantly rejoice in Jesus Christ for me, by my coming to you again. That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me, by my coming to you again.
1:27 Only live ye worthily to the gospel of Christ, that whether when I come and see you, or absent I shall hear of you, that ye stand in one spirit of one will, travailing together to the faith of the gospel. 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 yet hear of you, that ye continue in one spirit, and in one soul labouring as we do to maintain the faith of the gospel, 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 matters that ye continue in one Spirit, & in one mind fighting together through the faith of the Gospel. 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,
1:28 And in nothing be ye afeared of adversaries, which is to them cause of perdition, but to you a cause of health. And this thing is of God. and in nothing fearing your adversaries: which is to them a token of perdition, and to you a sign of health, and that of god And in nothing fear your adversaries, which is to them a token of perdition, & to you of salvation, and that of God. 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.
1:29 For it is given to you for Christ, that not only ye believe in him, but also that ye suffer for him; For unto you it is given, that not only ye should believe on Christ: but also suffer for his sake, For unto you it is given for Christ, that not only ye should believe in him, but also suffer for his sake, For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake,
1:30 having the same strife, which ye saw in me, and now ye have heard of me. and have even the same fight which ye saw me have and now hear of me. Having the same fight, which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me. Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
