4  Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I will say, “Rejoice!”

 5  Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

 6  In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

 7  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

 8  Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honorable, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue, and if there is any praise, think about these things.

 9  The things which you learned, received, heard, and saw in me: do these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

 10  But I rejoice in the Lord greatly, that now at length you have revived your thought for me; in which you did indeed take thought, but you lacked opportunity.

 11  Not that I speak in respect to lack, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content in it.

 12  I know how to be humbled, and I know also how to abound. In everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in need.

 13  I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.
