Philippians 4:4

_ _ (Isaiah 61:10.)

_ _ alway — even amidst the afflictions now distressing you (Philippians 1:28-30).

_ _ again — as he had already said, “Rejoice” (Philippians 3:1). Joy is the predominant feature of the Epistle.

_ _ I sayGreek, rather, “I will say.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Philippians 4:4

(3) Rejoice in the (d) Lord alway: [and] again I say, Rejoice.

(3) He adds particular exhortations: and the first is, that the joy of the Philippians should not be hindered by any afflictions that the wicked imagine and work against them.

(d) So is the joy of the world distinguished from our joy.
