New Living Translation

Philippians 2:3–8

Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

Though he was God,*

he did not think of equality with God

as something to cling to.

Instead, he gave up his divine privileges* ;

he took the humble position of a slave*

and was born as a human being.

When he appeared in human form,*

he humbled himself in obedience to God

and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
