Passage Lookup: Philippians 4:1-19
New American Standard Version
Therefore, my beloved brethren whom  I long  to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand  firm in the Lord, my beloved.
I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to live   in harmony in the Lord.
Indeed, true companion, I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow  workers, whose names  are in the book of life.
Rejoice  in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The  Lord is near. 
Be  anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer  and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the  peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,  will guard  your hearts and your minds  in Christ  Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever  is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,  whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell  on these things.
The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in  me, practice these things, and the  God of peace will be with you.
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you  have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity.
Not that I speak from  want, for I have learned to be content   in whatever circumstances I am.
I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry,  both of having abundance and suffering  need.
I can do all things through  Him who strengthens  me.
Nevertheless, you have done well to share  with me in my affliction.
You yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first   preaching of the gospel, after I left Macedonia,  no church shared  with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone;
for even in Thessalonica  you sent a gift more than once for my needs.
Not  that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit  which increases to your account.
But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply  supplied, having received from Epaphroditus  what  you have sent, a   fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.
And my  God will supply all  your needs according to His riches  in glory in Christ Jesus.
