Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not tiresome, but for you it is 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 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 circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, and rejoice in Messiah Yeshua, and have 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 though I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If any other man thinks that he has confidence in the flesh, I yet 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 stock of Yisra'el, of the tribe of Binyamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; concerning the law, a Parush; 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 concerning zeal, persecuting the assembly; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, found blameless. 6 as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless.
7 However, what things were gain to me, these have I counted loss for Messiah. 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
8 Yes most assuredly, and I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Messiah Yeshua, my Lord, for whom I suffered the loss of all things, and count them nothing but refuse, that I may gain Messiah 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 be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own, that which is of the law, but that which is through faith in Messiah, the righteousness which is from God by 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, becoming 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 by any means 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, or am already made perfect; but I press on, if it is so that I may take hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Messiah Yeshua. 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 Brothers, I don't regard myself as yet having laid hold, but one thing I do. Forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are 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 press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Messiah Yeshua. 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, think this way. If in anything you think otherwise, this God will also reveal that 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 Nevertheless, to the extent that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule. Let us be of the same mind. 16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
17 Brothers, be imitators together of me, and note those who walk this way, even as you have us for an example. 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 told you often, and now tell you even weeping, as the enemies of the cross of Messiah, 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 whose glory is in their shame, who think about 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 where we also wait for a Savior, the Lord, Yeshua the Messiah; 20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21 who will change the body of our humiliation to be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the working whereby he is able 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.
