Song Preview for Philippians 2
1 If there be therefore
any consolation in Christ, if any
comfort of love, if any fellowship
of the Spirit, if any bowels and
2 Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be
likeminded, having the same love,
being of one accord, of one mind.
3 Let nothing be done through
strife or vainglory; but in
lowliness of mind let each esteem
other better than themselves.
4 Look not every man on his own
things, but every man also on the
things of others.
5 Let this mind be in you, which
was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God,
thought it not robbery to be equal
7 But made himself of no
reputation, and took upon him the
form of a servant, and was made in
the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a
man, he humbled himself, and
became obedient unto death, even
the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly
exalted him, and given him a name
which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every
knee should bow, of things in
heaven, and things in earth, and
things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye 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.
13 For it is God which worketh in
you both to will and to do of his
14 Do all things without
murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and
harmless, the sons of God, without
rebuke, in the midst of a crooked
and perverse nation, among whom ye
shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life;
that I may rejoice in the day of
Christ, that I have not run in
vain, neither laboured in vain.
17 Yea, and if I be offered upon
the sacrifice and service of your
faith, I joy, and rejoice with you
18 For the same cause also do ye
joy, and rejoice with me.
But I trust in the Lord Jesus to
send Timotheus shortly unto you,
that I also may be of good
comfort, when I know your state.
20 For I have no man likeminded,
who will naturally care for your
21 For all seek their own, not the
things which are Jesus Christ's.
22 But ye know the proof of him,
that, as a son with the father, he
hath served with me in the gospel.
23 Him therefore I hope to send
presently, so soon as I shall see
how it will go with me.
24 But I trust in the Lord that I
also myself shall come shortly.
25 Yet I supposed it necessary to
send to you Epaphroditus, my
brother, and companion in labour,
and fellowsoldier, but your
messenger, and he that ministered
to my wants.
26 For he longed after you all,
and was full of heaviness, because
that ye had heard that he had been
27 For indeed he was sick nigh
unto death: but God had mercy on
him; and not on him only, but on
me also, lest I should have sorrow
28 I sent him therefore the more
carefully, that, when ye see him
again, ye may rejoice, and that I
may be the less sorrowful.
29 Receive him therefore in the
Lord with all gladness; and hold
such in reputation:
30 Because for the work of Christ
he was nigh unto death, not
regarding his life, to supply your
lack of service toward me.
