1 Paul and Timotheus the seruants of IESVS CHRIST, to all the Saintes in Christ Iesus which are at Philippi, with the Bishops, and Deacons:
6 And I am persuaded of this same thing, that he that hath begunne this good worke in you, wil perfourme it vntill the day of Iesus Christ,
7 As it becommeth me so to iudge of you all, because I haue you in remembrance that both in my bands, and in my defence, and confirmation of the Gospell you all were partakers of my grace.
10 That ye may alowe those things which are best, that ye may be pure, and without offence vntill the day of Christ,
11 Filled with the fruites of righteousnesse, which are by Iesus Christ vnto the glorie and praise of God.
¶ 12 I would ye vnderstood, brethren, that the things which haue come vnto me, are turned rather to the furthering of the Gospell,
13 So that my bandes in Christ are famous throughout all the iudgement hall, and in all other places,
14 In so much that many of the brethren in the Lord are boldened through my bandes, and dare more frankely speake the word.
16 The one part preacheth Christ of contention and not purely, supposing to adde more affliction to my bandes.
18 What then? yet Christ is preached all maner wayes, whether it be vnder a pretence, or syncerely: and I therein ioye: yea and will ioye.
19 For I knowe that this shall turne to my saluation through your prayer, and by the helpe of the Spirit of Iesus Christ,
20 As I feruently looke for, and hope, that in nothing I shalbe ashamed, but that with all confidence, as alwayes, so nowe Christ shalbe magnified in my body, whether it be by life or by death.
23 For I am distressed betweene both, desiring to be loosed and to be with Christ, which is best of all.
25 And this am I sure of, that I shall abide, and with you all continue, for your furtherance and ioy of your faith,
27 Onely let your conuersation be, as it becommeth the Gospel of Christ, that whether I come and see you, or els be absent, I may heare of your matters that ye continue in one Spirit, and in one mind, fighting together through the faith of the Gospel.
28 And in nothing feare your aduersaries, which is to them a token of perdition, and to you of saluation, and that of God.
29 For vnto you it is giuen for Christ, that not onely ye should beleeue in him, but also suffer for his sake,
