2:1 icapsf there bee therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of loue, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels, & mercies;  
2:2 Fulfill ye my ioy, that yee be like minded, hauing the same loue, being of one accord, of one minde.  
2:3 Let nothing bee done through strife, or vaine glory, but in lowlinesse of minde let each esteeme other better then themselues.  
2:4 Looke not euery man on his owne things, but euery man also on the things of others.  
2:5 Let this minde bee in you, which was also in Christ Iesus:  
2:6 Who being in the forme of God, thought it not robbery to bee equall with God:  
2:7 But made himselfe of no reputation, and tooke vpon him the forme of a seruant, and was made in the likenesse of men. Margin Note
2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himselfe, and became obedient vnto death, euen the death of the Crosse.  
2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and giuen him a Name which is aboue euery name:  
2:10 That at the Name of Iesus euery knee should bow, of things in heauen, and things in earth, and things vnder the earth:  
2:11 And that euery tongue should confesse, that Iesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  
2:12 Wherefore, my beloued, as yee haue alwayes obeyed, not as in my presence onely, but now much more in my absence; worke out your owne saluation with feare, and trembling.  
2:13 For it is God which worketh in you, both to will, and to doe, of his good pleasure.  
2:14 Doe all things without murmurings, and disputings:  
2:15 That yee may bee blamelesse and harmelesse, the sonnes of God, without rebuke, in the middes of a crooked and peruerse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world: Margin Note
2:16 Holding foorth the word of life, that I may reioyce in the day of Christ, that I haue not runne in vaine, neither laboured in vaine.  
2:17 Yea, and if I bee offered vpon the sacrifice and seruice of your faith, I ioy, and reioyce with you all. Margin Note
2:18 For the same cause also doe ye ioy, and reioyce with me.  
2:19 But I trust in the Lord Iesus, to send Timotheus shortly vnto you, that I also may bee of good comfort, when I know your state. Margin Note
2:20 For I haue no man like minded, who will naturally care for your state. Margin Note
2:21 For all seeke their owne, not the things which are Iesus Christs.  
2:22 But ye know the proofe of him, That as a sonne with the father, hee hath serued with me, in the Gospel.  
2:23 Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soone as I shall see how it wil goe with me.  
2:24 But I trust in the Lord, that I also my selfe shall come shortly.  
2:25 Yet I supposed it necessary, to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and companion in labour, and fellow souldiour, but your messenger, and hee that ministred to my wants.  
2:26 For hee longed after you all, and was full of heauinesse, because that yee had heard that he had bene sicke.  
2:27 For indeed he was sicke nigh vnto death, but God had mercy on him: and not on him onely, but on mee also, lest I should haue sorow vpon sorow.  
2:28 I sent him therefore the more carefully, that when ye see him againe, ye may reioyce, and that I may bee the lesse sorrowfull.  
2:29 Receiue him therfore in the Lord with all gladnesse, and hold such in reputation: Margin Note
2:30 Because for the worke of Christ he was nigh vnto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lacke of seruice toward me.
