THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Philippians (Author Paul)

2:25Yet I supposed 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.

2:26For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he had been sick.

2:27For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.

2:28I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.

2:29Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold such in reputation:

2:30Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.
