1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you. 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 Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision ; 2 Watch out for those dogs, those men who do evil, those mutilators of the flesh.
3 for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the 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 although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more : 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 circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a 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, a persecutor of the church ; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless. 6 as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless.
7 But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so 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 may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of 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 that I may 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 in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. 11 and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
12 Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold 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 regard myself as having laid hold of it yet ; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 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 press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call 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 Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, have this attitude ; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also 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 however, let us keep living by that same standard to which we have attained. 16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
17 Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us. 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 often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are 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 their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on 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 citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ ; 20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21 who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject 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.
