More than that, I count all things to be loss [a]in view of the surpassing value of [b](A)knowing (B)Christ Jesus my Lord, [c]for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them mere rubbish, so that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not having (C)a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, (D)the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, 10 that I may (E)know Him and (F)the power of His resurrection and [d](G)the fellowship of His sufferings, being (H)conformed to His death; 11 if somehow I may (I)attain to the resurrection from the dead.

12 Not that I have already [e](J)grasped it all or have already (K)become perfect, but I press on if I may also (L)take hold of that [f]for which I (M)was even taken hold of by (N)Christ Jesus. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not regard myself as having taken hold of it yet; but one thing I do: (O)forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I (P)press on toward the goal for the prize of the (Q)upward call of God in (R)Christ Jesus.
