Philippians 2
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

One in Christ
(Ephesians 2:11–18)

1If therefore any consolation in Christ, if any encouragement of love, if any mutual participation of the Spirit, if any compassions and mercies, 2Fill ye up my joy, that ye may have the same in mind, having the same love, unanimous, being one in mind. 3Nothing by hired labor, or vainglory; but in lowliness the leaders hold each other above themselves. 4Look ye each not on the things of themselves, but also each the things of others.

The Mind of Christ
(Isaiah 52:13–15)

5For let this be in mind among you, which also in Christ Jesus; 6Who, being in the form of God, thought not robbery to be equal to God. 7But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, born in the likeness of men: 8And found in fashion as man, he humbled himself, being obedient until death, and the death of the cross. 9Wherefore God has also exceedingly exalted him, and favored him as a gift with a name above every name: 10That in the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of the heavenlies, and of terrestrial things, and things under earth 11And every tongue should avow that the Lord is Jesus Christ, to the glory of the Father.

Lights in the World
(Matthew 5:13–16)

12Therefore, my beloved, as ye have always listened, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, with fear and tremor effect your own salvation. 13For God is working in you also to will and to work by benevolence.

14Do ye all things without murmurings and discussions: 15That ye be complete and pure, children of God, blameless in the midst of a crooked and perverted generation, among whom ye appear as luminaries in the world; 16Holding on to the word of life; for boasting to me in the day of Christ, for I ran not in vain, nor was I wearied in vain. 17But if also I am poured out upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice, and rejoice together with you all. 18And do ye also rejoice at the same, and rejoice together with me.

Timothy and Epaphroditus
(1 Corinthians 16:10–12)

19And I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy quickly to you, that I also be courageous, having known the things concerning you. 20For I have none having a like soul, who naturally will have care for the things concerning you. 21For they all seek the things of themselves, and not the things of Christ Jesus. 22And ye know his proof, that, as a child to a father, he served with me in the good news. 23Him therefore I truly hope to send, whenever I shall see from it the things concerning me. 24And I have trusted in the Lord that I myself also shall come quickly.

25And I thought necessary Epaphroditus, my brother, and cooperator, and fellow-soldier, and your sent, and workman of my necessity, be sent to you. 26Since he was longing for you all, and harassed because ye heard that he was sick. 27For also he was sick near to death: but God compassionated him; and not him only, but also me, lest I should have grief upon grief. 28Therefore I sent him the more earnestly, that, seeing him, ye might again rejoice, and I be more free from sorrow. 29Therefore receive him in the Lord with all joy; and hold such esteemed. 30Because for the work of Christ he drew near to death, having exposed the soul to danger, that he might fill up your want of service to me.
