Philippians 1

Thanksgiving

1Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus,

To all the [a]saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, [b]including the overseers and deacons: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your [c]participation in the gospel from the first day until now. For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. [d]For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my [e]imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me. For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the [f]affection of Christ Jesus. And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may [g]approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless [h]until the day of Christ; 11 having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

The Gospel Is Preached

12 Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, 13 so that my [i]imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole [j]praetorian guard and to everyone else, 14 and that most of the [k]brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my [l]imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear. 15 Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even [m]from envy and strife, but some also [n]from good will; 16 the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel; 17 the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition [o]rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my [p]imprisonment. 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 [q]deliverance through your [r]prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

To Live Is Christ

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

27 Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one [v]mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 in no way alarmed by your opponents—which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God. 29 For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, 30 experiencing the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

Abafiripi 1

Okulamusa

1Nze Pawulo ne Timoseewo abaddu ba Kristo Yesu tuwandiikira abatukuvu bonna mu Kristo Yesu abali mu Firipi, awamu n’abalabirizi n’abadiikoni; ekisa n’emirembe ebiva eri Katonda Kitaffe ne Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo, bibeerenga nammwe.

Okwebaza n’okusaba Katonda

Nneebaza Katonda wange buli lwe mbajjukira, era buli lwe mbasabira mwenna nsaba nga nzijudde essanyu. Kubanga okuviira ddala ku lunaku olwasooka n’okutuusiza ddala kaakano mwetaba wamu nange mu njiri. Nkakasiza ddala nti oyo eyatandika omulimu omulungi mu mmwe, aligutuukiriza okutuusa ku lunaku lwa Kristo Yesu. Kino kituufu okubalowoozaako bwe ntyo mwenna, kubanga mundowoozaako mu kusibibwa kwange ne mu kulwanirira Enjiri, ne mu kuginyweza, nga mwenna mwetaba wamu nange mu kisa. Katonda ye mujulirwa wange nga mwenna bwe mbaagala n’okwagala okuva eri Kristo Yesu. Mbasabira nti okwagala kwammwe kweyongerenga, era mujjule amagezi n’okutegeera, 10 mulyoke mulonde ekisinga obulungi, olunaku lwa Kristo bwe lulituuka lubasange nga muli balongoofu abataliiko kamogo, 11 nga mujjudde ekibala eky’obutuukirivu ku bwa Yesu Kristo, olw’okuweesa Katonda ekitiibwa n’okumutendereza.

Obusibe bwa Pawulo bubunyisa Njiri

12 Abooluganda, njagala mmwe mutegeere kaakano nti ebimu ebyambaako byongera bwongezi kubunyisa Njiri, 13 n’okusibibwa kwange kulyoke kulabise Kristo eri olusiisira lwonna olw’abaserikale ba kabaka n’eri abalala bonna. 14 N’abooluganda mu Mukama waffe abasinga obungi beeyongedde okuguma olw’okusibibwa kwange, era nga bamaliridde okwaŋŋanga okubuulira nga tebatya.

15 Weewaawo abamu bategeeza abantu Kristo lwa buggya na kuvuganya, naye abalala bakikola mu mwoyo mulungi. 16 Bano bakikola lwa kwagala, kubanga bamanyi nga nalondebwa lwa kulwanirira Njiri. 17 Naye bali bategeeza Kristo lwa kuvuganya, so si mu mazima, nga balowooza nti banaayongera okunnakuwaza mu busibe bwe ndimu. 18 Naye nze nfaayo ki? Kristo bw’abuulirwa, mu buli ngeri, oba za bukuusa oba za mazima, nze nsanyuka busanyusi.

Era nzija kweyongera okusanyuka. 19 Kubanga mmanyi nti olw’okunsabira n’olw’amaanyi g’Omwoyo wa Yesu Kristo, ndifuna okulokolebwa kwange. 20 Neesiga era nsubirira ddala nti sijja kuswala mu nsonga n’emu, wabula ne kaakano nzija kuguma nga bulijjo, Kristo agulumizibwe mu mubiri gwange, oba okuyita mu bulamu oba okuyita mu kufa. 21 Nze mba mulamu lwa Kristo era ne bwe nfa mba ngobolodde. 22 Naye obanga bwe mba omulamu mu mubiri ng’ekyo kibala ky’okufuba kwange, simanyi kye nnaalondawo. 23 Nkwatiddwa buli luuyi; nneegomba okuva mu bulamu buno ŋŋende mbeere ne Kristo, kubanga ekyo kisingako obulungi. 24 Naye okusigala mu mubiri kye kisinga okwetaagibwa ku lwammwe 25 Ekyo nkikakasa era nkimanyi nti nzija kuba nga nkyaliwo mbeere nammwe, mulyoke mweyongere okusanyuka n’okukula mu kukkiriza, 26 bwe ndikomawo gye muli mulyoke mweyongere okwenyumiririza mu Kristo ku lwange.

27 Naye kirungi obulamu bwammwe bubeerenga nga bwe kisaanira Enjiri ya Kristo; ne bwe ndijja oba ne bwe sirijja kubalaba, mpulire nti muli banywevu era mwegasse mu mwoyo gumu, nga mulwanirira okukkiriza okw’enjiri n’emmeeme emu. 28 Temutyanga abo ababawakanya kubanga ke kabonero akakakasa nti balizikirizibwa, naye mmwe mulirokolebwa, era ekyo kiva eri Katonda. 29 Kubanga mwaweebwa omukisa, ku lwa Kristo, si mu kumukkiriza kyokka, naye n’okubonaabona ku lulwe. 30 Olutalo lwe mwalaba nga nnwana, era lwe muwulira lwe ndiko kaakano, nammwe lwe muliko.
