From particular admonitions
Philippians 4:1 Therfore my brethren (dearly beloued and longed for) my ioye and crowne, so continue in the Lorde ye beloued. Philippians 4:2 I praye Euodias, and beseche Sintiches, þt they be of one accorde in the Lord. Philippians 4:3 Yee and I beseche the faythfull yockefelowe, helpe þe wemen which laboured with me in the Gospell, and with Clement also, and with other my laboure felowes whose names are in þe boke of lyfe.
he proceedeth to general exhortations,
Philippians 4:4 Reioyce in þe Lord alwaye and agayne I saye reioyce. Philippians 4:5 Let youre softenes be knowen vnto all men: The Lorde is euen at hande. Philippians 4:6 Be carefull for nothynge: but in all prayer and supplicacyon let youre peticyons be manifeste vnto God with geuynge of thankes. Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God (which passeth all vnderstandynge) kepe youre hertes and myndes thorowe Christ Iesu. Philippians 4:8 Furthermore, brethren, whatsoeuer thinges are true, whatsoeuer thynges are honeste, whatsoeuer thinges are iust, whatsoeuer thynges are pure, whatsoeuer thynges are conuenient, whatsoeuer thinges are of honeste reporte: Yf ther be eny vertue, yf ther be eny prayse, Philippians 4:9 those same haue ye in youre mynde, which ye haue bothe learned & receaued, hearde also and sene in me those thinges do, and the God of peace shalbe with you.
shewing how he rejoiced at their liberality towards him lying in prison, not so much for the supply of his own wants, as for the grace of God in them.
Philippians 4:10 I reioyce in the Lord greatly, þt nowe at the last youre care is reuyued agayne for me in that wherin ye were also carefull, but ye lacked oportunite. Philippians 4:11 I speake not because of necessite. For I haue learned in whatsoeuer estate I am, therwith to be content. Philippians 4:12 I knowe howe to be lowe and I knowe howe to excede. Euery where and in all thinges I am instructed, both to be full and to be hongrye, both to haue plenty and to suffre nede. Philippians 4:13 I can do all thinges thorowe Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:14 Not withstandynge ye haue well done, þt ye bare parte wt me in my tribulacion. Philippians 4:15 Ye of Philippos knowe also that in the begynnynge of the Gospell, when I departed from Macedonia, no congregacyon bare parte with me, as concernynge geuynge & receauinge, but ye onely. Philippians 4:16 For when I was in Thessalonica, ye sent once and afterward agayne vnto my necessite: Philippians 4:17 not þt I desire gyftes: but I desyre aboundant frute on youre parte. Philippians 4:18 Neuertheles I receaued all, and haue plentie. I was euen fylled after that I receaued of Epaphroditus þe thinges, which were sent from you, an odoure of a swete smell a sacrifyce accepted and pleasaunt to God.
And so he concludeth with prayer and salutations.
Philippians 4:19 My God shall supplye all youre nede thorow his gloryous riches by Iesu Christ. Philippians 4:20 Unto God & oure father be prayse for euermore. Amen. Philippians 4:21 Salute all the saynctes in Christ Iesu. The brethren which are with me, greate you. Philippians 4:22 All the saynctes salute you, most of all they which are of the emperours housholde. Philippians 4:23 The grace of oure Lord Iesu Christ be with you all. Amen.
