“Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:11 I have learned - From God. He only can teach this. In everything, therewith to be content - Joyfully and thankfully patient. Nothing less is Christian content. We may observe a beautiful gradation in the expressions, I have learned; I know; I am instructed; I can.
Php 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want. Lest they should think that he rejoiced because he had been in want, Paul adds for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, [therewith] to be content. He had learned to be content, whatever was his state. He had Christ, and to him Christ was all in all.
