2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Mashiach, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any loving kindness and mercies,
2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of One accord, of One mind.
2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Mashiach Yehoshua (יהושע):
2:6 Who, being in the likeness of Elohim, thought it not robbery to be equal with Elohim:
2:7 But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the likeness of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the stauros (stake).
2:9 Wherefore Elohim also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name:
2:10 That at the Name of Yehoshua (יהושע) every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth;
2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Yehoshua (יהושע) Mashiach is Adonay, to the glory of Elohim the Father.
2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, keep working out your deliverance with fear and trembling.
2:13 For it is Elohim which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the Benai of Elohim, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
2:16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the Yom ha Mashiach, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
2:17 Yes, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.
2:18 For the same cause also do ye joy, and rejoice with me.
2:19 But I trust in Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע) to send Timotheos shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.
2:20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.
2:21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Yehoshua (יהושע) Mashiach's.
2:22 But ye know the proof of Him, that, as a son with the father, he hath served with me in the good news.
2:23 Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me.
2:24 But I trust in Adonay that I also myself shall come shortly.
2:25 Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditos, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants.
2:26 For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he had been sick.
2:27 For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but Elohim had mercy on Him; and not on Him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
2:28 I sent Him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see Him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.
2:29 Receive Him therefore in Adonay with all gladness; and hold such in reputation:
2:30 Because for the work of Mashiach he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.
