Philippians 3:4-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 though I myself have reasons for such confidence.1 If anyone else thinks he has reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: 5 circumcised2 on the eighth day, of the people of Israel,3 of the tribe of Benjamin,4 a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee;5 6 as for zeal,6 persecuting the church;7 as for legalistic righteousness,8 faultless. 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss9 for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing10 Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ11 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law,12 but that which is through faith in Christ--the righteousness13 that comes from God and is by faith.14
