1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved. 2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life. 4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. 5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. 10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction. 15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. 17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. 18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you. 22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household. 23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

7 Enakshi Ganguly = ""Euodia and Syntyche were two well-known Christian women in Philippi. Either on his first visit or later they had both worked hard with Paul to spread the *gospel. For some reason they had quarrelled. It was a serious matter, as it would make the witness of the Christians there weak. Paul shows how much he cares for both of them by appealing to each woman by name. He wants them to agree ‘in the *Lord’, as Christians should."Source: http://www.easyenglish.info/bible-commentary/philippians-lbw.htm"

9 Enakshi Ganguly = ""The above was written by the Apostle Paul, but historians are divided on where it was written from (Corinth, Ephesus, Rome, and Caesarea have all been speculated).This shows that Paul knew someone named Clement. Clement, therefore knew Paul, and was with Paul when he wrote this letter. It can probably be reasonably implied that Clement probably knew others in Philippi. And based on Paul's writings, it can be concluded that Paul, at that time, considered that particular Clement to be a Christian. It is probably logical to conclude that Clement met with Paul on multiple occasions and probably, like the others, assisted him to some degree.What it does not show is that Clement was to be the leader of those in Rome or ordained by Peter. Clement simply was one of many who knew and probably assisted the Apostle Paul. The lack of emphasis/preeminence in Paul's writings would seem to suggest that Clement could not have been the one to become the "bishop of Rome" and the successor of Peter and Paul in 67 A.D. or perhaps later--there are different lists for Clement. It should also be noted that if Paul did write his Epistle to the Philippians in Rome (as many Roman Catholic scholars maintain), one would think that Clement would be mentioned other writings from Paul if Clement was to have preeminence--but instead he is not mentioned anywhere else in any New Testament writing.Whether or not this is the same individual named Clement that many Roman Catholics consider to succeed Peter cannot be determined from the passages in Philippians. Roman Catholic scholars seem divided on this matter, though the general consensus seems to be that the Clement of Rome is not the same one that Paul referred to."Source: http://www.cogwriter.com/clement.htm"

12 Cary W = "We don't even know what the real problems or needs are most of the time, so to allow worry, doubt, fear or strife to occupy our mind or heart is very futile and even damaging to our peace and confidence in God.We are asked to only surrender and invite His counsel and answer in everything.  As we offer each request up with joyful thanks that we know He hears and will answer, He is able to demonstrate His strength and glory in all our dealings."
13 Deena E = ""Be careful for nothing"This word careful refers to worry and anxiety. Instead, Paul says to pray and BE THANKFUL in prayer."
14 Deena E = "The power of gratitude (thanksgiving) alleviates anxiety. In fact, Paul says it gives us peace, God's peace--the kind of peace that doesn't even make sense why we're not flustered about something that should have us stressed out! I dare you to try being thankful the next time you start to worry! Seriously, I dare you! =]"

21 Cary W = "We have two choices each moment really: to think for ourselves or think with God, like God with all thoughts that would resonate with such a glorious wise and kind King.This list covers every true and perfect state of mind and the perceiving of holy experience or impression.  May we bring every thought contrary to this list captive before Christ, allowing Him to winnow out the chaff and clean us up for heavenly mindedness."
22 Deena E = ""think on these things"The Greek word for think here logizomai refers to a continuous recounting "on these things," in other words meditation. Meditation is not as complicated as some would think. It is simply an in depth thought/recounting of something."
23 Deena E = "Just imagining my head being filled with pure, lovely thoughts, things of good report, virtuous and praise worthy things gives me great peace right now. The power of meditation is amazing! What we think about generally dictates our attitudes and then into behavior."
24 Cary W = "This passage is really the litmus test as to whether we are bringing all our thoughts captive to Christ or not; if our thoughts are on such things of praiseworthiness, then His peace rules our heart and mind.  If we have any contrary thought to these noble attributes, then we suffer  in turmoil and confusion."

27 Enakshi Ganguly = ""It is a term rather earthly and human, as compared with the names of the spiritual graces which Christianity imparts; hence the rarity of its occurrence in the New Testament. Piety and true morality are inseparable. Piety is love with its face towards God; morality is love with its face towards man.
