1:12 12 For, brethren, I will that ye know, that the things that be about me have come more to the profit of the gospel, 12 I would ye understood brethren that my business is happened unto the greater furthering {furtherance} of the gospel.

1:15 15 But some for envy and strife, some for good will, preach Christ; 15 Some there are which preach Christ of envy and strife, and some of goodwill. 15 Some preach Christ even through envy and strife, and some also of good will. 15 Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife; and some also from good will:
1:16 16 and some of charity, witting that I am put in the defence of the gospel. 16 The one part preacheth Christ of strife, and not purely, supposing to add more adversity to my bonds. 16 The one part preacheth Christ of contention and not purely, supposing to add more affliction to my bands. [bonds] 16 The one preach Christ from contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
1:17 17 But some of strife [Forsooth some of contention, or strife,] show Christ not cleanly, guessing them(selves) to raise tribulation to my bonds. 17 The other part of love, because they see that I am set to defend {for the defence of} the gospel.

1:20 20 by mine abiding and hope [after mine abiding and hope] . For in nothing I shall be ashamed, but in all trust as evermore and now, Christ shall be magnified in my body, either by life, either by death. 20 as I heartily look for and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed: but that with all confidence, as always in times past, even so now Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be thorow life, or else death. 20 As I fervently [heartily] look for, and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all confidence, as always, so now Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life or by death. 20 According to my earnest expectation and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether by life, or by death.

1:22 22 That if to live in flesh, [this] is fruit of work to me, lo! what I shall choose, I know not.

1:23 23 But I am constrained of two things, I have desire to be departed [Forsooth I am constrained of two things, having desire to be dissolved, or departed the soul from the body] , and to be with Christ, it is much more better; 23 I am constrained of two things: I desire to be loosed, [lowsed] and to be with Christ, which thing is best of all: 23 For I am distressed between both, [greatly in doubt on both sides,] desiring to be loosed and to be with Christ, which is best of all. 23 For I am in a strait between the two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
1:24 24 but to dwell in flesh, is needful for you. 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. 24 Nevertheless, to abide in the flesh, is more needful for you. 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

1:27 27 Only live ye worthily to the gospel of Christ, that whether when I come and see you, either absent I hear of you [or absent I shall hear of you] , that ye stand in one spirit of one will, travailing together to the faith of the gospel. 27 Only let your conversation be, as it becometh the gospel [gospell] of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may yet hear of you, that ye continue in one spirit, and in one soul laboring as we do to maintain the faith of the gospel, [gospell] 27 Only let your conversation be, as it becometh the Gospel of Christ, that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your matters that ye continue in one Spirit, and in one mind, fighting together through the faith of the Gospel. 27 Only let your conduct be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
1:28 28 And in nothing be ye afeared of adversaries, which is to them cause of perdition, but to you a cause of health. And this thing is of God. 28 and in nothing fearing your adversaries: which is to them a token of perdition, and to you a sign of health, [salvation] and that of God. 28 And in nothing fear your adversaries, which is to them a token of perdition, and to you of salvation, and that of God. 28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God.
1:29 29 For it is given to you for Christ, that not only ye believe in him, but also that ye suffer for him; 29 For unto you it is given, that not only ye should believe on Christ: but also suffer for his sake, 29 For unto you it is given for Christ, that not only ye should believe in him, but also suffer for his sake, 29 For to you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
1:30 30 having the same strife, which ye saw in me, and now ye have heard of me. 30 and have even the same fight which ye saw me have and now hear of me. 30 Having the same fight, which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me. 30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
2:1 1 Therefore if any comfort is in Christ, if any solace of charity, if any fellowship of Spirit, if any inwardness of mercy doing [if any entrails of mercy doing] , 1 If there be among you any consolation in Christ, if there be any comfortable love, if there be any fellowship of the spirit, if there be any compassion of mercy: 1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any compassion and mercy, 1 If there is therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion,
2:2 2 fill ye my joy, that ye understand the same thing, and have the same charity, of one will, and feel the same thing; [fulfill ye my joy, that ye understand the same thing, having the same charity, of one will, feeling the same thing;] 2 fulfil my joy, that ye draw one way, having one love, being of one accord, and of one mind, 2 Fulfill my joy, that ye be like minded, having the same love, being of one accord, and of one judgement, 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
2:3 3 nothing by strife, neither by vain glory, but in meekness, deeming each other to be higher than himself; [+nothing doing, neither by strife, neither by vain glory, but in meekness, deeming higher than themselves together, or each holding others higher in virtue;] 3 that nothing be done thorow strife or vain glory, but in meekness of mind. Let every person think every other man better than himself, [but that in meekness of mind every man esteem other better than him self,] 3 That nothing be done through contention or vain glory, but that in meekness of mind every man esteem others better than himself. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.
2:4 4 not beholding each by himself what things be his own, but those things that be of other men. [not each by themselves beholding what things be their own, but those things that be of others.] 4 so that ye consider every man, not what is in himself: But what is in wother men. [and that no man consider his awne, but what is mete for other] {and let every man look not for his own profit, but for the profit of other} 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of other men. 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

2:15 15 that ye be without plaint, and simple as the sons of God, without reproof, in the middle of a depraved nation [in the middle of a shrewd nation] and a wayward; among which ye shine as givers of light in the world [among whom ye shine as givers of light in the world;} . 15 that ye may be faultless, and pure, and the sons {children} of God, without rebuke, in the midst {middes} of a crooked, and a perverse nation, among which see that ye shine as lights in the world, 15 That ye may be blameless, and pure, and the sons of God without rebuke in the midst of a naughty and crooked nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world, 15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; [harmless: or, sincere] [ye shine: or, shine ye]
2:16 16 And hold ye together the word of life to my glory in the day of Christ; for I have not run in vain, neither I have travailed in vain.

2:20 20 For I have no man so of one will, that is busy for you with clean affection. 20 For I have no man that is so like minded to me, which with so pure affection careth for your matters. 20 For I have no man like minded, who will faithfully care for your matters. 20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. [likeminded: or, so dear unto me]
2:21 21 For all men seek those things that be their own, not those that be of Christ Jesus. 21 For all others seek their own, and not that which is Jesus Christ's. [Iesus Christes] 21 For all seek their own, and not that which is Jesus Christ's. 21 For all seek their own, not the things of Jesus Christ.
2:22 22 But know ye the assay of him [Forsooth know ye the experiment, or assay, of him] , for as a son to the father he hath served with me in the gospel. 22 Ye know the proof of him, how that as a son {child} with the father, so with me bestowed he his labour upon {so hath he ministered unto me in} the gospel. [gospell] 22 But ye know the proof of him, that as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the Gospel. 22 But ye know the proof of him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the gospel.
2:23 23 Therefore I hope that I shall send him to you, at once as I see what things be about me. [Forsooth I hope me to send him to you, anon as I shall see what things be about me.] 23 Him I hope to send as soon as I know how it will go with me. 23 Him therefore I hope to send as soon as I know how it will go with me, 23 Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me.
2:24 24 And I trust in the Lord, that also myself shall come to you soon. 24 I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly. 24 And trust in the Lord, that I also myself shall come shortly. 24 But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.
2:25 25 And I guessed it needful to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and even-worker, and mine even-knight, but your apostle, and the minister of my need. 25 I supposed {thought} it necessary to send brother Epaphreditus unto you, my companion in labour and fellowsoldier, your apostle, and my minister at my needs. 25 But I supposed it necessary to send my brother Epaphroditus unto you, my companion in labor, and fellow soldier, even your messenger, and he that ministered unto me such things as I wanted. 25 Yet I thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants.
2:26 26 For he desired you all, and he was sorrowful, therefore that ye heard that he was sick. 26 For he longed after you, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard say that he should be sick, 26 For he longed after all you, and was full of heaviness, because ye had heard that he had been sick. 26 For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because ye had heard that he was sick.
2:27 27 For he was sick [till] to the death, but God had mercy on him; and not only on him, but also on me, lest I had heaviness on heaviness [lest I had heaviness upon heaviness] . 27 and no doubt he was sick, and that nye unto death, but God had mercy on him: not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have had sorrow upon sorrow. 27 And no doubt he was sick, very near unto death: but God had mercy on him, and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. 27 For indeed he was sick near to death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
2:28 28 Therefore more hastily I sent him, that when ye have seen him, ye have joy again, and I be without heaviness. 28 I sent him therefore the diligentlier, {the more haistely} that when ye should see him, ye might rejoice again, and I might be the less sorrowful. 28 I sent him therefore the more diligently, that when ye should see him again, ye might rejoice, and I might be the less sorrowful. 28 I sent him therefore the more eagerly, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.
2:29 29 Therefore receive ye him with all joy in the Lord, and have ye such with all honour. 29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness, and make much of such: 29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness, and make much of such: 29 Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold such in reputation: [hold...: or, honour such]
2:30 30 For the work of Christ he went to death, giving his life, that he should fulfill that that failed of you with my service. [For why for the work of Christ unto the death he went, giving his life, that he should fulfill that that failed to you with my service.] 30 because that for the work of Christ he went so far, that he was nye unto death, and regarded not his life, to fulfil that service which was lacking on your part toward me. 30 Because that for the work of Christ he was near unto death, and regarded not his life, to fulfill that service which was lacking on your part toward me. 30 Because for the work of Christ he was near to death, not regarding his life, to supply the want of your service toward me.
3:1 1 Henceforward, my brethren, have ye joy in the Lord. To write to you the same things, to me it is not slow, and to you it is necessary. 1 Moreover brethren mine, [my brethren] rejoice in the Lord.
