But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss1 for the sake of Christ.
What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing2 Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ39
and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law,4 but that which is through faith in Christ--the righteousness5 that comes from God and is by faith.610
I want to know7 Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings,8 becoming like him in his death,911
and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection10 from the dead.
