腓立比書 Philippians 1:1-11
1 基督耶穌的僕人保羅和提摩太，寫信給凡住腓立比，在基督耶穌裡的眾聖徒和諸位監督、諸位執事。 2 願恩惠、平安從神我們的父並主耶穌基督歸於你們！ 3 我每逢想念你們，就感謝我的神； 4 每逢為你們眾人祈求的時候，常是歡歡喜喜地祈求。 5 因為從頭一天直到如今，你們是同心合意地興旺福音。 6 我深信那在你們心裡動了善工的必成全這工，直到耶穌基督的日子。 7 我為你們眾人有這樣的意念原是應當的，因你們常在我心裡，無論我是在捆鎖之中，是辯明證實福音的時候，你們都與我一同得恩。 8 我體會基督耶穌的心腸，切切地想念你們眾人，這是神可以給我作見證的。 9 我所禱告的，就是要你們的愛心在知識和各樣見識上多而又多， 10 使你們能分別是非，做誠實無過的人，直到基督的日子； 11 並靠著耶穌基督結滿了仁義的果子，叫榮耀稱讚歸於神。
1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all God’s holy people in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons: 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. 7 It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me. 8 God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
