|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
7 The very credentials these people are waving around as something special, I'm tearing up and throwing out with the trash - along with everything else I used to take credit for. And why? Because of Christ.
7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
