HH: Here's the NIV:
Phil. 2:17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on
the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and
rejoice with all of you.
HH: I think the idea is that the Philippians' faith produces in them
sacrificial living and service. If the Philippians' lives are a
sacrifice presented to God because of their faith, Paul's own life
may be added like a drink offering to that sacrifice if he should die
in prison or be executed.
