4 although I [could] have confidence even in the flesh.

Righteousness Through Christ

5 {circumcised on the eighth day}a, from the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew [born] from Hebrews, according to the law a Pharisee, 6 according to zeal persecuting the church, according to the righteousness in the law being blameless. 7 But whatever [things] were gain to me, these [things] I have considered loss because of Christ. 8 {More than that}b, [I] even consider all [things] to be loss because of the surpassing greatness of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for the sake of whom I have suffered the loss of all [things], and consider [them]c dung, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and may be found in him, not having my righteousness [which is] from the law, but [which is] through faith in Christ,d the righteousness from God on the basis of faith,e 10 so that I may know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death, 11 if somehow I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. 12 Not that I have already received [this],f or [have] already been made perfect, but I press on if indeed I may lay hold of [that] for which also I was laid hold of by Christ.g 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself to have laid hold of [it].h But [I do] one [thing], forgetting the things behind and straining toward the things ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
