Therefore my dear brothers and sisters, whom I long to see, my joy and my crown; stand firm in the Lord in this way my beloved.
I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to have the same mind in the Lord. Yes, I ask you, my true companion, to help them, because they contended in the Gospel with me and Clement and the rest of my fellow-workers, whose names are in the book of life.
Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say, rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all people—the Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard all of your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is anything excellent in character, if there is anything praiseworthy, let your thoughts continually dwell on these things.
That which you learned, received, heard, and saw in me, put into practice. And as a result the God of peace will be with you all.
