People's Bible Notes for Philippians 4:2


Php 4:2 I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche. Two good women of Philippi, who had apparently been estranged. Women were prominent in the founding of the Philippian church; Lydia was the first convert (Ac 16:14,15), and her house was a home of the missionaries (Ac 16:40). Observe the repetition of the word "beseech". It gives it special emphasis.

    In verse 12 Paul brought out that no matter if he had an abundance or if he had little, he knew how to be self-sufficient. Verse 13 brings out that no matter the situation, we are given the strength we need by Jehovah God.

    I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Well said, I am retiring and will continue to believe on the Word of God forever. This is therapy for my soul, and always remember when we stand with Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Savior we are more than conquerors. "Will not fall for anything." Pray and believe on the Word, Jesus will not fail us. Amen!
