Philippians 3:4-14

CEB 4 though I have good reason to have this kind of confidence. If anyone else has reason to put their confidence in physical advantages, I have even more: NRS 4 even though I, too, have reason for confidence in the flesh. If anyone else has reason to be confident in the flesh, I have more: CEB 5 I was circumcised on the eighth day. I am from the people of Israel and the tribe of Benjamin. I am a Hebrew of the Hebrews. With respect to observing the Law, I'm a Pharisee. NRS 5 circumcised on the eighth day, a member of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew born of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee; CEB 6 With respect to devotion to the faith, I harassed the church. With respect to righteousness under the Law, I'm blameless. NRS 6 as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless. CEB 7 These things were my assets, but I wrote them off as a loss for the sake of Christ. NRS 7 Yet whatever gains I had, these I have come to regard as loss because of Christ. CEB 8 But even beyond that, I consider everything a loss in comparison with the superior value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have lost everything for him, but what I lost I think of as sewer trash, so that I might gain Christ NRS 8 More than that, I regard everything as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ CEB 9 and be found in him. In Christ I have a righteousness that is not my own and that does not come from the Law but rather from the faithfulness of Christ. It is the righteousness of God that is based on faith. NRS 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but one that comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God based on faith. CEB 10 The righteousness that I have comes from knowing Christ, the power of his resurrection, and the participation in his sufferings. It includes being conformed to his death NRS 10 I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the sharing of his sufferings by becoming like him in his death, CEB 11 so that I may perhaps reach the goal of the resurrection of the dead. NRS 11 if somehow I may attain the resurrection from the dead. CEB 12 It's not that I have already reached this goal or have already been perfected, but I pursue it, so that I may grab hold of it because Christ grabbed hold of me for just this purpose. NRS 12 Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. CEB 13 Brothers and sisters, I myself don't think I've reached it, but I do this one thing: I forget about the things behind me and reach out for the things ahead of me. NRS 13 Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, CEB 14 The goal I pursue is the prize of God's upward call in Christ Jesus. NRS 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.
