Exhortation, Encouragement, and Prayer

Philippians 4

2 I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche d to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 1 And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who e labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in f the Book of Life.

4 g Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your 2 gentleness be known to all men. h The Lord is at hand. 6 i Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with j thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and k the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are l true, whatever things are m noble, whatever things are n just, o whatever things are pure, whatever things are p lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and q the God of peace will be with you.
