Christ’s Humility and Exaltation

Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus,

who, existing in the form of God,

did not consider equality with God x

as something to be used for His own advantage. y

Instead He emptied Himself z

by assuming the form of a * slave, a

taking on the likeness of men. b

And when He had come as a man

in His external form,

He humbled Himself by becoming obedient

to the point of death—

even to death on a cross. c

For this reason God highly exalted Him d

and gave Him the name

that is above every name,

10 so that at the name of Jesus

every knee will bow e

of those who are in heaven f and on earth

and under the earth g

11 and every tongue h should confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord, i

to the glory j of God the Father.
