Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Henceforward, my brethren, have ye joy in the Lord. To write to you the same things, to me it is not slow, and to you it 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 See ye hounds, see ye evil workmen, see ye division [see ye concision]. 2 Watch out for those dogs, those men who do evil, those mutilators of the flesh.
3 For we be circumcision, which by spirit serve to God, and glory in Christ Jesus, and have not trust 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 have trust, yea, in the flesh. If any other man is seen to trust 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 that was circumcised in the eighth day, of the kin of Israel [circumcised in the eighth day, of the kindred of Israel], of the lineage of Benjamin, an Hebrew of Hebrews, by the law a Pharisee [after 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 by love pursuing the church of God, by rightwiseness that is in the law living without plaint. [after love pursuing the church of God, after rightwiseness that is in the law living without plaint.] 6 as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless.
7 But which things were to me winnings, I have deemed these impairings for Christ. 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
8 Nevertheless I guess all things to be impairment for the clear science of Jesus Christ my Lord. For whom I made all things impairment, and I deem as drit [and I deem as turds], that I win 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 be found in him, not having my rightwiseness that is of the law, but that that is of the faith of Christ Jesus [but that that is of the faith of Christ], that is of God the rightwiseness 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 to know him, and the virtue of his rising again, and the fellowship of his passion, and to be made like to his death, [to know him, and the virtue of his rising again, and the fellowship of his passion, I configured, or made like, 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 on any manner I come to the resurrection that is from death. [if on any manner I shall come to the resurrection that is of dead men.] 11 and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
12 Not that now I have taken, or now am perfect; but I follow, if in any manner I catch, in which thing also I am caught of Christ Jesus. [Not that now I have taken, or now am perfect; forsooth I follow, if on any manner I shall comprehend, in which thing also I am comprehended of 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 deem me not that I have caught; but one thing, I forget those things that be behind, and stretching forth myself to those things that be before, [Brethren, I deem me not to have comprehended; one thing, forsooth, I forgetting soothly those things that be behind, stretching myself forsooth to those things that be the former,] 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 and pursue to the ordained meed of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. [to the ordained thing, pursue to the prize of the high calling 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 Therefore whoever we be perfect, feel we this thing. And if ye understand in other manner any thing, this thing God shall show 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 what thing we have come, that we understand the same thing, and that we perfectly dwell in the same rule. 16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
17 Brethren, be ye my followers, and watch ye them that walk so [and wait ye (on) them that walk so], as ye have our form. 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, which I have said oft to you, but now I weeping say, the enemies of Christ's cross, [Forsooth many walk, whom I have said oft to you, forsooth now and I weeping say, them, the enemies of Christ's cross,] 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 death, whose god is the womb, and the glory in [the] confusion of them, that savour earthly things [that savour, or understand, 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 living is in heavens [Forsooth our living is in heaven]; from whence also we abide 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 which shall reform the body of our meekness, that is made like to the body of his clearness, by the working by which he may also make all things subject to him. [which shall reform the body of our meekness, configured, or made like, to the body of his clearness, after the working by which he may also make all things subject to him.] 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.
