Filipenses 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.

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

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

4 Though *I* have {my} trust even in flesh; if any other think to trust in flesh, *I* rather:

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;

6 as to zeal, persecuting the assembly; as to righteousness which {is} in {the} law, found blameless;

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

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;

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,

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

11 if any way I arrive at the resurrection from among {the} dead.

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}.

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,

14 I pursue, {looking} towards {the} goal, for the prize of the calling on high of God in Christ Jesus.

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.

16 But whereto we have attained, {let us} walk in the same steps.

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

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:

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

20 for *our* commonwealth has its existence in {the} heavens, from which also we await the Lord Jesus Christ {as} Saviour,

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.
