Chapter 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.
