Jesus Humbled Himself

Indeed,[a] let this attitude be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Though he was by nature God,[b] he did not consider equality with God as a prize to be displayed,[c] but he emptied himself by taking the nature[d] of a servant. When he was born in human likeness, and his appearance was like that of any other man,[e] he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death—even death on a cross. Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
