4 Even though I myself might have faith in the flesh: if any other man has reason to have faith in the flesh, I have more:

5 Being given circumcision on the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in relation to the law, a Pharisee:

6 In bitter hate I was cruel to the church; I kept all the righteousness of the law to the last detail.

7 But those things which were profit to me, I gave up for Christ.

Filipenses 3:4-7
