From particular admonitions
Philippians 4:1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, [my] dearly beloved. Philippians 4:2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. Philippians 4:3 And I entreat thee also, true yoke-fellow, help those women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and [with] other my fellow-laborers, whose names [are] in the book of life.
he proceedeth to general exhortations,
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: [and] again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:5 Let your moderation be known to all men. The Lord [is] at hand. Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things [are] honest, whatever things [are] just, whatever things [are] pure, whatever things [are] lovely, whatever things [are] of good report; if [there is] any virtue, and if [there is] any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace will be 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 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, [with that] to be content. Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:14 Notwithstanding ye have done well, that ye did communicate with my affliction. Philippians 4:15 Now, ye Philippians, know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. Philippians 4:16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again to my necessity. Philippians 4:17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. Philippians 4:18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things [which were sent] from you, an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God.
And so he concludeth with prayer and salutations.
Philippians 4:19 But my God will supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:20 Now to God and our Father [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen. Philippians 4:21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you. Philippians 4:22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Cesar's household. Philippians 4:23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.
