Philippians 1:7-8

Context
1:7 For 1  it is right for me to think this about all of you, because I have you in my heart, 2  since both in my imprisonment 3  and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel all of you became partners in God’s grace 4  together with me. 1:8 For God is my witness that I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.

1 tn Grk “Just as.” The sense here is probably, “So I give thanks (v. 3) just as it is right for me…”

2 tn Or possibly “because you have me in your heart.”

3 tn Grk “in my bonds.” The meaning “imprisonment” derives from a figurative extension of the literal meaning (“bonds,” “fetters,” “chains”), L&N 37.115.

4 tn The word “God’s” is supplied from the context (v. 2) to clarify the meaning.
