p Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. q The Lord is at hand;
r do not be anxious about anything, s but in everything by prayer and supplication t with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And u the peace of God, v which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you.
You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me - practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
And to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
