1 Therefore, if there is any encouragement in the Messiah, if there is any comfort of love, if there is any fellowship in the Spirit, if there is any compassion and sympathy, 2 then fill me with joy by having the same attitude, sharing the same love, being united in spirit, and keeping one purpose in mind. 3 Do not act out of selfish ambition or conceit, but with humility think of others as being better than yourselves. 4 Do not be concerned about your own interests, but also be concerned about the interests of others. 5 Have the same attitude among yourselves that was also in the Messiah Jesus: 6 In God's own form existed he, and shared with God equality, deemed nothing needed grasping. 7 Instead, poured out in emptiness, a servant's form did he possess, a mortal man becoming. In human form he chose to be, 8 and lived in all humility, death on a cross obeying. 9 Now lifted up by God to heaven, a name above all others given, this matchless name possessing. 10 And so, when Jesus' name is called, the knees of everyone should fall wherever they're residing. 11 Then every tongue in one accord, will say that Jesus the Messiah is Lord, while God the Father praising.
