4:11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
4:12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
4:13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
4:14 Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.
4:15 Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only;
4:16 for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid again and again when I was in need.
4:17 Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account.
4:18 I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.
4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
4:20 To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
4:21 Greet all the saints in Christ Jesus. The brothers who are with me send greetings.
4:22 All the saints send you greetings, especially those who belong to Caesar's household.
4:23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
