Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:1 - Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:2 - fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:3 - Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:4 - Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:5 - Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:6 - who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:7 - but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:8 - And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:9 - Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:10 - that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:11 - and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:12 - Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:13 - for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:14 - Do all things without complaining and disputing,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:15 - that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:16 - holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:17 - Yes, and if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:18 - For the same reason you also be glad and rejoice with me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:19 - But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly, that I also may be encouraged when I know your state.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:20 - For I have no one like-minded, who will sincerely care for your state.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:21 - For all seek their own, not the things which are of Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:22 - But you know his proven character, that as a son with his father he served with me in the gospel.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:23 - Therefore I hope to send him at once, as soon as I see how it goes with me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:24 - But I trust in the Lord that I myself shall also come shortly.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:25 - Yet I considered it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker, and fellow soldier, but your messenger and the one who ministered to my need;

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:26 - since he was longing for you all, and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:27 - For indeed he was sick almost unto death; but God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:28 - Therefore I sent him the more eagerly, that when you see him again you may rejoice, and I may be less sorrowful.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:29 - Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness, and hold such men in esteem;

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 2:30 - because for the work of Christ he came close to death, not regarding his life, to supply what was lacking in your service toward me.
