New King James Version
The Humbled and Exalted Christ
5 (A)Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, (B)being in the form of God, did not consider it [a]robbery to be equal with God, 7 (C)but [b]made Himself of no reputation, taking the form (D)of a bondservant, and (E)coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and (F)became (G)obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.Read full chapter

5 (A)Have this attitude [a]in yourselves which was also in (B)Christ Jesus, 6 who, as He already (C)existed in the (D)form of God, (E)did not consider equality with God something to be [b]grasped, 7 but [c](F)emptied Himself by taking the form of a (G)bond-servant and [d](H)being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, (I)He humbled Himself by becoming (J)obedient to the point of death: (K)death [e]on a cross.Read full chapter

5 Have this same attitude in yourselves which was in Christ Jesus [look to Him as your example in selfless humility], 6 who, although He existed in the form and unchanging essence of God [as One with Him, possessing the fullness of all the divine attributes—the entire nature of deity], did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped or asserted [as if He did not already possess it, or was afraid of losing it]; 7 but emptied Himself [without renouncing or diminishing His deity, but only temporarily giving up the outward expression of divine equality and His rightful dignity] by assuming the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men [He became completely human but was without sin, being fully God and fully man]. 8 After He was found in [terms of His] outward appearance as a man [for a divinely-appointed time], He humbled Himself [still further] by becoming obedient [to the Father] to the point of death, even death on a cross.Read full chapter
New International Version
5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:(A)
6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,(B)
did not consider equality with God(C) something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing(D)
by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,(E)
being made in human likeness.(F)
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death(G)—
even death on a cross!(H)

King James Version
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.Read full chapter
