Philippians 2:1-16 GNV

1 [a]If there be therefore any consolation in [b]Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any [c]compassion and mercy,

Fulfill my joy, that ye be like minded, having the [d]same love, being of one accord, and of one judgment,

That nothing be done through contention or vainglory, but that in meekness of mind every man esteem others better than himself.

Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of other men.

5 [e]Let the same mind be in you that was even in Christ Jesus,

Who being in the [f]form of God, [g]thought it no robbery to be [h]equal with God:

But he made himself of [i]no reputation, and took on him the [j]form of a servant, and was made like unto men, and was found in shape as a man.

He humbled himself, and became obedient unto the death, even the death of the cross.

9 [k]Wherefore God hath also highly exalted him, and given him a [l]name above every name.

10 That at the Name of Jesus should [m]every knee bow, both of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.

11 And that [n]every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, unto the glory of God the Father.

12 [o]Wherefore my beloved, as ye have always obeyed me, not as in my presence only, but now much more in mine absence, so[p]make an end of your own salvation with fear and trembling.

13 [q]For it is God which worketh in you both [r]the will and the deed, even of his good pleasure.

14 [s]Do all things without murmuring and reasonings,

15 [t]That ye may be blameless, and pure, and the sons of God without rebuke in the midst of a naughty and crooked nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world,

16 Holding forth the [u]word of life, [v]that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither have labored in vain.
