Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.(A) Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,(B) not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.(C)

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:(D)

Who, being in very nature[a] God,(E)
    did not consider equality with God(F) something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing(G)
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,(H)
    being made in human likeness.(I)
And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death(J)
        even death on a cross!(K)

Therefore God exalted him(L) to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,(M)
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,(N)
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,(O)
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,(P)
    to the glory of God the Father.
