Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 As to the rest, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not wearisome, but to you is necessary. 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 dogs: beware of evil workers: beware of 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 in spirit serve God and glory in Christ Jesus, not having 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 might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other thinketh he may have confidence in the flesh, I 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 Being circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews. According 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 According to zeal, persecuting the church of God: According to the justice that is in the law, conversing without blame. 6 as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless.
7 But the things that were gain to me, the same I have counted loss for Christ. 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
8 Furthermore, I count all things to be but loss for the excellent knowledge of Jesus Christ, my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them but as dung, 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 my justice, which is of the law, but that which is of the faith of Christ Jesus, which is of God: justice in 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 made conformable 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 which is from the dead. 11 and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
12 Not as though I had already attained, or were already perfect: but I follow after, if I may by any means apprehend, wherein I am also apprehended 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 myself to have apprehended. But one thing I do: Forgetting the things that are behind and stretching forth myself to those that 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 towards the mark, to the prize of the supernal vocation 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, be thus minded: and if in any thing you be otherwise minded, this also God will 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 Nevertheless, whereunto we are come, that we be of the same mind, let us also continue in the same rule. 16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
17 Be ye followers of me, brethren: and observe them who walk so as you have our 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 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 belly: and whose glory is 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 But our conversation is in heaven: from whence also we look for the Saviour, our 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 reform the body of our lowness, made like to the body of his glory, according to the operation whereby also he is able to subdue all things unto 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.
