C. The Believers' Fellowship with the Apostle
and the Apostle's Secret of Sufficiency
10 But I arejoiced in the Lord greatly because now at length you have caused your thinking for me to 1blossom anew; for which matter you had indeed taken thought, but lacked opportunity.
11 Not that I speak according to alack, for I have learned, in whatever circumstances I am, to be 1bcontent.
12 I know also how to be 1abased, and I know how to 2abound; 3in everything and in all things 4I have learned the secret both to be 5filled and to ahunger, both to 6abound and to 7black.
13 I am able to do all things 1in Him who 2aempowers me.
14 Nevertheless you did well to have 1afellowship with me in my 2affliction.
15 And you yourselves also know, Philippians, that in the beginning of the agospel, when I bwent out from cMacedonia, no church had 1fellowship with me in the 2daccount of 3giving and receiving except 4you only;
16 For even in aThessalonica you sent both once and again to my bneed.
17 Not that I seek the 1gift, but I seek the 2afruit which increases to your 3baccount.
18 But I have received in full all things and abound; I have been 1filled, receiving from aEpaphroditus the 2things from you, a 3sweet-smelling savor, an acceptable 4bsacrifice, well-pleasing to God.
19 And 1my God will 2afill 3your every need 4according to His riches, 5in glory, 6in Christ Jesus.
20 Now to 1our God and Father be the 2aglory forever and ever. 3Amen.
