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,
2 Fulfill my joy, that ye be like minded, having the [d]same love, being of one accord, and of one judgment,
3 That nothing be done through contention or vainglory, but that in meekness of mind every man esteem others better than himself.
4 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,
6 Who being in the [f]form of God, [g]thought it no robbery to be [h]equal with God:
7 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.
8 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.
