1:13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.
1:14 Because of my chains, most of the brothers in the Lord have been encouraged to speak the word of God more courageously and fearlessly.
1:15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.
1:16 The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.
1:17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains.
1:18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.
67:2 that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
67:3 May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.
67:4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth. Selah
67:5 May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.
67:6 Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.
67:7 God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him.
