The Bible in Its Traditions

Philippians 4:10–13

10  But I rejoiced in YHWH greatly that now once [again] you have revived your mindfulness on my behalf, inasmuch as indeed you were mindful, but you lacked opportunity.

10  Now I rejoice in the Lord exceedingly, because finally, after some time, your feelings for me have flourished again, just as you formerly felt. For you had been preoccupied.

11  Not that I am speaking with respect to need, for I have learned to be content in whatever state I am.

11  I am not saying this as if out of need. For I have learned that, in whatever state I am, it is sufficient.

11  Nor am I saying this simply because I am in want; for I have learned to make what I have meet my needs.

12  I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. In every place and in all [circumstances] I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in need.

12  I know how to be humbled, and I know how to abound. I am prepared for anything, anywhere: either to be full or to be hungry, either to have abundance or to endure scarcity.

12  I know what it is to be poor, and I know what it is to be rich: I have gone through many things and experienced many things, both to be full and to be hungry, both to have plenty and to be in want.

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

13  Everything is possible in him who has strengthened me.
