Do nothing [a]from [b](A)selfishness or (B)empty conceit, but with humility of mind (C)regard one another as more important than yourselves; (D)do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. (E)Have this attitude [c]in yourselves which was also in (F)Christ Jesus, who, although He (G)existed in the (H)form of God, (I)did not regard equality with God a thing to be [d]grasped, but [e](J)emptied Himself, taking the form of a (K)bond-servant, and (L)being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, (M)He humbled Himself by becoming (N)obedient to the point of death, even (O)death [f]on a cross. (P)For this reason also, God (Q)highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him (R)the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus (S)every knee will bow, of (T)those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is (U)Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
