1 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

3I thank my God whenever I think of you;Paul's Prayer for the Philippians Php.1.3-11Εὐχαριστῶ τῷ θεῷ μου ἐπὶ πάσῃ τῇ μνείᾳ ὑμῶν,
4and when I pray for you all, my prayers are always joyful, πάντοτε ἐν πάσῃ δεήσει μου ὑπὲρ πάντων ὑμῶν μετὰ χαρᾶς τὴν δέησιν ποιούμενος,
5because of the part you have taken in the work of the Gospel from the first day until now. ἐπὶ τῇ κοινωνίᾳ ὑμῶν εἰς τὸ εὐαγγέλιον ἀπὸ τῆς πρώτης ἡμέρας ἀχρι τοῦ νῦν,
6Of one thing I am certain: the One who started the good work in you will bring it to completion by the Day of Christ Jesus. πεποιθὼς αὐτὸ τοῦτο, ὅτι ὁ ἐναρξάμενος ἐν ὑμῖν ἐργον ἀγαθὸν ἐπιτελέσει ἀχρι ἡμέρας Χριστοῦ Ἰησοῦ·
7It is indeed only right that I should feel like this about you all, because you hold me in such affection, and because, when I lie in prison or appear in the dock to vouch for the truth of the Gospel, you all share in the privilege that is mine. Or: I am justified in taking this view about you all, because I hold you in closest union, as those who, when I lie ... of the Gospel, all share in the privilege that is mine. καθώς ἐστιν δίκαιον ἐμοὶ τοῦτο φρονεῖν ὑπὲρ πάντων ὑμῶν, διὰ τὸ ἐχειν με ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ ὑμᾶς, ἐν τε τοῖς δεσμοῖς μου καὶ ἐν τῇ ἀπολογίᾳ καὶ βεβαιώσει τοῦ εὐαγγελίου ς υγκοινωνούς μου τῆς χάριτος πάντας ὑμᾶς ὄντας.
8God knows how I long for you all, with the deep yearning of Christ Jesus himself. μάρτυς γάρ μου ὁ θεός, ὡς ἐπιποθῶ πάντας ὑμᾶς ἐν σπλάγχνοις Χριστοῦ Ἰησοῦ.
9And this is my prayer, that your love may grow ever richer and richer in knowledge and insight of every kind, καὶ τοῦτο προσεύχομαι, ἵνα ἡ ἀγάπη ὑμῶν ἐτι μᾶλλον καὶ μᾶλλον περισσεύῃ ἐν ἐπιγνώσει καὶ πάσῃ αἰσθήσει,
10and may thus bring you the gift of true discrimination. Or: may teach you by experience what things are most worth while. Then on the Day of Christ you will be flawless and without blame, εἰς τὸ δοκιμάζειν ὑμᾶς τὰ διαφέροντα, ἵνα ἦτε εἰλικρινεῖς καὶ ἀπρόσκοποι εἰς ἡμέραν Χριστοῦ,
11reaping the full harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
 πεπληρωμένοι καρπὸν δικαιοσύνης τὸν διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ εἰς δόξαν καὶ ἐπαινον θεοῦ.
