The Gospel Is Preached

12 ¶ Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances ahave turned out for the greater progress of the bgospel, 13 so that my Iaimprisonment in [the cause of] Christ has become well known throughout the whole IIpraetorian guard and to beveryone else, 14 and that most of the Ibrethren, trusting in the Lord because of my IIaimprisonment, have bfar more courage to speak the word of God without fear. 15 aSome, to be sure, are preaching Christ even Ifrom envy and strife, but some also Ifrom good will; 16 the latter [do it] out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the agospel; 17 the former proclaim Christ aout of selfish ambition Irather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my IIbimprisonment. 18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice.

¶ Yes, and I will rejoice, 19 for I know that this will turn out for my Ideliverance athrough your IIprayers and the provision of bthe Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 according to my aearnest expectation and bhope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but [that] with call boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be dexalted in my body, ewhether by life or by death.

To Live Is Christ

21 For to me, ato live is Christ and to die is gain. 22 IBut if [I am] to live [on] in the flesh, this [will mean] afruitful labor for me; and I do not know IIwhich to choose. 23 But I am hard-pressed from both [directions], having the adesire to depart and bbe with Christ, for [that] is very much better; 24 yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake. 25 aConvinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy Iin the faith, 26 so that your aproud confidence in me may abound in Christ Jesus through my coming to you again.

27 ¶ Only conduct yourselves in a manner aworthy of the bgospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are cstanding firm in done spirit, with one Imind estriving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 in no way alarmed by [your] opponents—which is a asign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that [too], from God. 29 For to you ait has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to bsuffer for His sake, 30 experiencing the same aconflict which byou saw in me, and now hear [to be] in me.

He sheweth what good the faith of Christ had received by his troubles at Rome,

12 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things [which happened] unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel; 13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other [places]; 14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. 15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: 16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: 17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. 18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice. 19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 According to my earnest expectation and [my] hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but [that] with all boldness, as always, [so] now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether [it be] by life, or by death.

and to fortitude in persecution.

28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. 29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; 30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear [to be] in me.
