The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 For the rest, my brethren, rejoice in [the] Lord: to write the same things to you, to me [is] not irksome, and for you safe. 1 Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.
2 See to dogs, see to evil workmen, see to the concision. 2 Watch out for those dogs, those men who do evil, those mutilators of the flesh.
3 For *we* are the circumcision, who worship by [the] Spirit of God, and boast in Christ Jesus, and do not trust in flesh. 3 For it is we who are the circumcision, we who worship by the Spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh--
4 Though *I* have [my] trust even in flesh; if any other think to trust in flesh, *I* rather: 4 though I myself have reasons for such confidence. If anyone else thinks he has reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more:
5 as to circumcision, [I received it] the eighth day; of [the] race of Israel, of [the] tribe of Benjamin, Hebrew of Hebrews; as to [the] law, a Pharisee; 5 circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee;
6 as to zeal, persecuting the assembly; as to righteousness which [is] in [the] law, found blameless; 6 as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless.
7 but what things were gain to me these I counted, on account of Christ, loss. 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
8 But surely I count also all things to be loss on account of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, on account of whom I have suffered the loss of all, and count them to be filth, that I may gain Christ; 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ
9 and that I may be found in him, not having my righteousness, which [would be] on the principle of law, but that which is by faith of Christ, the righteousness which [is] of God through faith, 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ--the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.
10 to know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death, 10 I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,
11 if any way I arrive at the resurrection from among [the] dead. 11 and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
12 Not that I have already obtained [the prize], or am already perfected; but I pursue, if also I may get possession [of it], seeing that also I have been taken possession of by Christ [Jesus]. 12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
13 Brethren, *I* do not count to have got possession myself; but one thing -- forgetting the things behind, and stretching out to the things before, 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
14 I pursue, [looking] towards [the] goal, for the prize of the calling on high of God in Christ Jesus. 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
15 As many therefore as [are] perfect, let us be thus minded; and if ye are any otherwise minded, this also God shall reveal to you. 15 All of us who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.
16 But whereto we have attained, [let us] walk in the same steps. 16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
17 Be imitators [all] together of me, brethren, and fix your eyes on those walking thus as you have us for a model; 17 Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you.
18 (for many walk of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they [are] the enemies of the cross of Christ: 18 For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.
19 whose end [is] destruction, whose god [is] the belly, and [their] glory in their shame, who mind earthly things:) 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things.
20 for *our* commonwealth has its existence in [the] heavens, from which also we await the Lord Jesus Christ [as] Saviour, 20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21 who shall transform our body of humiliation into conformity to his body of glory, according to the working of [the] power which he has even to subdue all things to himself. 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
