Do nothing [a]from [b](A)selfishness or (B)empty conceit, but with humility (C)consider 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, as He already (G)existed in the (H)form of God, (I)did not consider equality with God something to be [d]grasped, but [e](J)emptied Himself by taking the form of a (K)bond-servant and [f](L)being born in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, (M)He humbled Himself by becoming (N)obedient to the point of death: (O)death [g]on a cross.
