1:21
1:27

Paul testifies his thankfulness to God, and his love towards them, for the fruits
of their faith, and fellowship in his sufferings,

Daily praying to him for their increase in grace;
He shows what good the faith of Christ had received by his troubles at Rome;
And how ready he is to glorify Christ either by his life or death;
Exhorting them to unity.
Philippians 2
2:1

2:12
2:16
2:19

Paul exhorts them to unity, and to all humbleness of mind, by the example of
Christ's humility and exaltation;

To a careful proceeding in the way of salvation, that they be as lights to the wicked world,
And comforts to him their apostle, who is now ready to be offered up to God.
He hopes to send Timothy to them, and Epaphroditus also.

3:18

He warns them to beware of the false teachers of the circumcision;
Shewing that himself has greater cause than they to trust in the righteousness of the law;
Which notwithstanding he counts as dung and loss, to gain Christ and his righteousness;
Therein acknowledging his own imperfection.
He exhorts them to be thus minded;
And to imitate him,;
And to decline the ways of carnal Christians.
Philippians 4
4:1
4:4
4:10

4:19

From particular admonitions,
He proceeds to general exhortations,
Shewing how he rejoiced at their liberality towards him lying in prison, not so much
for the supply of his own wants as for the grace of God in them.

And so he concludes with prayer and salutations.
