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.
