Main point summary
We cannot be standing firm, if are rumbling with others! We cannot rejoice & be at war with each other. We cannot have peace if we are anxious. Prayer turns pesky anxieties into profound peace.
Therefore, my beloved brethren 1 whom I a long to see, my joy and crown,
in this way b stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.
I urge Euodia
and I urge Syntyche to 1 a live in harmony in the Lord. Indeed, true companion,
I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my a fellow workers, whose b names are in the book of life.
a Rejoice in the Lord always;
again I will say, rejoice!
Let your gentle spirit be known to all men.
a The Lord is 1 near.
a Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything
by b prayer
let your requests be made known to God.
And a the peace of God, which surpasses all 1 comprehension,
will b guard your hearts and your c minds in d Christ Jesus.
