Philippians 2:3-11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

nothing by strife, neither by vain glory, but in meekness, deeming each other to be higher than himself;[a]

not beholding each by himself what things be his own, but those things that be of other men. [not each by themselves beholding what things be their own, but those things that be of others.]

And feel ye this thing in you, which was also in Christ Jesus;

which when he was in the form of God, deemed not raven, that himself were even to God; [which when he was in the form of God, deemed not raven, himself to be even to God;]

but he lowed himself [but he meeked himself], taking the form of a servant, and was made into the likeness of men,

and in habit was found as a man. He meeked himself, and was made obedient to the death[b], yea, to the death of the cross.

For which thing God enhanced him, and gave to him a name that is above all name; [For which thing and God enhanced him, and gave to him a name that is above all names;]

10 that in the name of Jesus each knee be bowed, of heavenly things, [and] of earthly things, and of hell's;

11 and each tongue acknowledge, that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:3-11 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Let nothing be done through rivalry or vainglory, but in meekness of mind let everyone esteem the other better than himself. And look not every person on his own things, but every person on the things of others.

Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, counted it not a prize to be equal to God, but made himself of no reputation, and took on him the form of a servant, and became like humankind, and was found in his appearance as a man. He humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. For this God has exalted him, and given him a name above all names, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee will bow, both of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth, 11 and so that all tongues will confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:3-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

That nothing be done through contention or vainglory, but that in meekness of mind every man esteem others better than himself.

Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of other men.

[a]Let the same mind be in you that was even in Christ Jesus,

Who being in the [b]form of God, [c]thought it no robbery to be [d]equal with God:

But he made himself of [e]no reputation, and took on him the [f]form of a servant, and was made like unto men, and was found in shape as a man.

He humbled himself, and became obedient unto the death, even the death of the cross.

[g]Wherefore God hath also highly exalted him, and given him a [h]name above every name.

10 That at the Name of Jesus should [i]every knee bow, both of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.

11 And that [j]every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, unto the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:5 He setteth before them a most perfect example of all modesty and sweet conversation, Christ Jesus, whom we ought to follow with all our might: who abased himself so far for our sakes, although he be above all, that he took upon him the form of a servant, to wit, our flesh willingly, subject to all infirmities, even to the death of the cross.

Philippians 2:3-11 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
