Philippians 2 - AMP

2 Fill up and complete my joy by living in harmony and being of the same mind and one in purpose, having the same love, being in full accord and of one harmonious mind and intention. 3 Do nothing from factional motives or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself . 4 Let each of you esteem and look upon and be concerned for not his own interests, but also each for the interests of others. 5 Let this same attitude and purpose and mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God , did not Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.or retained, 7 But stripped Himself , so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. 8 And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross! 9 Therefore God has highly exalted Him and has Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, 10 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee ``Should" is the past tense of ``shall," implying authority or compulsion.should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 And every tongue confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 Therefore, my dear ones, as you have always obeyed , so now, not only in my presence but much more because I am absent, work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling (self-distrust, Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ). 13 for it is God Who is all the while Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.effectually at work in you , both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon of the Greek New Testament.delight. 14 Do all things without grumbling and faultfinding and complaining and Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.questioning and doubting , 15 That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation , among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the world, 16 Holding out and offering the Word of Life, so that in the day of Christ I may have something of which exultantly to rejoice and glory in that I did not run my race in vain or spend my labor to no purpose. 17 Even if must be poured out as a libation on the sacrificial offering of your faith , still I am glad and Joseph P.

Lightfoot, Saint Paul's Epistle to the Philippians and James Moulton and George Milligan, The Vocabulary of the Greek Testament.congratulate me on it. 19 But I hope and trust in the Lord Jesus soon to send Timothy to you, so that I may also be encouraged and cheered by learning news of you. 20 For I have no one like him who will be so genuinely interested in your welfare and devoted to your interests. 21 For the others all seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ (the Messiah). 22 But Timothy's tested worth you know, how as a son with his father he has toiled with me zealously in the good news (the Gospel). 23 I hope therefore to send him promptly, just as soon as I know how my case is going to turn out. 24 But I am confident and fully trusting in the Lord that shortly I myself shall come to you also. 25 However, I thought it necessary to send Epaphroditus to you. my brother and companion in labor and my fellow soldier, as well as your special messenger (apostle) and minister to my need. 26 For he has been longing for you all and has been distressed because you had heard that he was ill. 27 He certainly was ill , near to death. But God had compassion on him, and not only on him but also on me, lest I should have sorrow Marvin Vincent, Word Studies.coming upon sorrow. 28 So I have sent him the more willingly and eagerly, that you may be gladdened at seeing him again, and that I may be the less disquieted. 29 Welcome him then in the Lord with all joy, and honor and highly appreciate men like him, 30 For it was through working for Christ that he came so near death, risking his life to complete the deficiencies in your service to me .
