I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.
However you did well that you shared in my affliction.
You yourselves also know, you Philippians, that in the beginning of the Good News, when I departed from Macedonia, no assembly shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you only.
For even in Thessalonica ◆ you sent once and again to my need.
Not that I seek for the gift, but I seek for the fruit that increases to your account.
But I have all things and abound. I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things that came from you, a sweet-smelling fragrance,
an acceptable and well-pleasing sacrifice to God.
