Philippians 3

[1] [2] [3] [4]

3:1 For the rest, my brethren, rejoice in [the] Lord: to write the same things to you, to me [is] not irksome, and for you safe.

3:2 See to dogs, see to evil workmen, see to the concision.

3:3 For *we* are the circumcision, who worship by [the] Spirit of God, and boast in Christ Jesus, and do not trust in flesh.

3:4 Though *I* have [my] trust even in flesh; if any other think to trust in flesh, *I* rather:

3:5 as to circumcision, [I received it] the eighth day; of [the] race of Israel, of [the] tribe of Benjamin, Hebrew of Hebrews; as to [the] law, a Pharisee;

3:6 as to zeal, persecuting the assembly; as to righteousness which [is] in [the] law, found blameless;

3:7 but what things were gain to me these I counted, on account of Christ, loss.

3:8 But surely I count also all things to be loss on account of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, on account of whom I have suffered the loss of all, and count them to be filth, that I may gain Christ;

3:9 and that I may be found in him, not having my righteousness, which [would be] on the principle of law, but that which is by faith of Christ, the righteousness which [is] of God through faith,

3:10 to know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death,

3:11 if any way I arrive at the resurrection from among [the] dead.

3:12 Not that I have already obtained [the prize], or am already perfected; but I pursue, if also I may get possession [of it], seeing that also I have been taken possession of by Christ [Jesus].

3:13 Brethren, *I* do not count to have got possession myself; but one thing -- forgetting the things behind, and stretching out to the things before,

3:14 I pursue, [looking] towards [the] goal, for the prize of the calling on high of God in Christ Jesus.

3:15 As many therefore as [are] perfect, let us be thus minded; and if ye are any otherwise minded, this also God shall reveal to you.

3:16 But whereto we have attained, [let us] walk in the same steps.

3:17 Be imitators [all] together of me, brethren, and fix your eyes on those walking thus as you have us for a model;

3:18 (for many walk of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they [are] the enemies of the cross of Christ:

3:19 whose end [is] destruction, whose god [is] the belly, and [their] glory in their shame, who mind earthly things:)

3:20 for *our* commonwealth has its existence in [the] heavens, from which also we await the Lord Jesus Christ [as] Saviour,

3:21 who shall transform our body of humiliation into conformity to his body of glory, according to the working of [the] power which he has even to subdue all things to himself.
