Notes on Philippians
From the Original 1599 Geneva Bible Notes

Php 1:1

1:1 Paul {1} and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the {a} bishops and deacons:

Php 1:5

1:5 For your {b} fellowship in the gospel from the {c} first day until now;

Php 1:6

1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it] until the {d} day of Jesus Christ:

Php 1:7

1:7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my {e} bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my {f} grace.

Php 1:8

1:8 {2} For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.

Php 1:9

1:9 {3} And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and [in] all judgment;

Php 1:11

1:11 Being filled with the {g} fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Php 1:12

1:12 {4} But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things [which happened] unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;

Php 1:13

1:13 So that my bonds {h} in Christ are manifest in all the {i} palace, and in all other [places];

Php 1:14

1:14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the {k} word without fear.

Php 1:16

1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not {l} sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

Php 1:18

1:18 {5} What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in {m} pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

Php 1:20

1:20 {6} 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.

Php 1:22

1:22 {7} But if I live in the {n} flesh, this [is] the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.

Php 1:27

1:27 {8} Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye {o} stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;

Php 1:28

1:28 {9} 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.

Php 1:29

1:29 {10} For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Php 1:30

1:30 {11} Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear [to be] in me.

Php 2:1

2:1 If {1} [there be] therefore any consolation in {a} Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any {b} bowels and mercies,

Php 2:2

2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the {c} same love, [being] of one accord, of one mind.

Php 2:5

2:5 {2} Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Php 2:6

2:6 Who, being in the {d} form of God, {e} thought it not robbery to be {f} equal with God:

Php 2:7

2:7 But made himself of {g} no reputation, and took upon him the {h} form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

Php 2:9

2:9 {3} Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a {i} name which is above every name:

Php 2:10

2:10 That at the name of Jesus {k} every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth;

Php 2:11

2:11 And [that] {l} every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Php 2:12

2:12 {4} Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, {m} work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Php 2:13

2:13 {5} For it is God which worketh in you both {n} to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.

Php 2:14

2:14 {6} Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

Php 2:15

2:15 {7} That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Php 2:16

2:16 Holding forth the {o} word of life; {8} that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Php 2:17

2:17 Yea, and if I be offered upon the {p} sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

Php 2:19

2:19 {9} But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of {q} good comfort, when I know your state.

Php 2:21

2:21 For {r} all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.

Php 2:30

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

Php 3:1

3:1 Finally, {1} my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. {2} To write the {a} same things to you, to me indeed [is] not grievous, but for you [it is] safe.

Php 3:2

3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the {b} concision.

Php 3:3

3:3 {3} For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence {c} in the flesh.

Php 3:4

3:4 {4} Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

Php 3:7

3:7 But what things were {d} gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

Php 3:8

3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count {e} all things [but] loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [but] dung, that I may {f} win Christ,

Php 3:9

3:9 And be found in {g} him, {h} not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

Php 3:10

3:10 {5} That I may {i} know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the {6} fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

Php 3:11

3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the {k} resurrection of the dead.

Php 3:12

3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am {l} apprehended of Christ Jesus.

Php 3:15

3:15 {7} Let us therefore, as many as be {m} perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

Php 3:18

3:18 {8} (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, [that they are] the enemies of the cross of Christ:

Php 3:19

3:19 Whose {n} end [is] destruction, whose God [is their] belly, and [whose] {o} glory [is] in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

Php 3:20

3:20 {9} For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Php 4:1

4:1 Therefore, {1} my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and {a} crown, so stand fast in the {b} Lord, [my] dearly beloved.

Php 4:2

4:2 {2} I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.

Php 4:3

4:3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and [with] other my fellowlabourers, whose names [are] in the {c} book of life.

Php 4:4

4:4 {3} Rejoice in the {d} Lord alway: [and] again I say, Rejoice.

Php 4:5

4:5 {4} Let your {e} moderation be known unto all men. {5} The Lord [is] at hand.

Php 4:6

4:6 {6} Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with {f} thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Php 4:7

4:7 And the {g} peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your {h} hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Php 4:8

4:8 {7} Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things {i} [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

Php 4:10

4:10 {8} But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

Php 4:11

4:11 Not that I speak in respect of {k} want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, [therewith] to be content.

Php 4:12

4:12 I know both how to be {l} abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am {m} instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

Php 4:15

4:15 {9} Now ye Philippians know also, that in the {n} beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

Php 4:17

4:17 {10} Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

Php 4:18

4:18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things [which were sent] from you, an {o} odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.

Php 4:22

4:22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of {p} Caesar's household.
