Main point summary
Think like Jesus, who humbled himself and obeyed.
Τοῦτο φρονεῖτε ἐν ὑμῖν
a Have this attitude 1 in yourselves
ὃ καὶ ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ,
which was also in b Christ Jesus,
ὃς ἐν μορφῇ θεοῦ ὑπάρχων
who, although He a existed in the b form of God,
οὐχ ἁρπαγμὸν ἡγήσατο τὸ εἶναι ἴσα θεῷ,
c did not regard equality with God a thing to be 1 grasped,
ἀλλʼ ἑαυτὸν ἐκένωσεν
but 1 a emptied Himself,
μορφὴν δούλου λαβών,
taking the form of a b bond-servant,
ἐν ὁμοιώματι ἀνθρώπων γενόμενος
and c being made in the likeness of men.
καὶ σχήματι εὑρεθεὶς ὡς ἄνθρωπος.
Being found in appearance as a man,
a He humbled Himself
γενόμενος ὑπήκοος μέχρι θανάτου, θανάτου δὲ σταυροῦ.
by becoming b obedient to the point of death, even c death 1 on a cross.
διὸ καὶ ὁ θεὸς αὐτὸν ὑπερύψωσεν
a For this reason also, God b highly exalted Him,
καὶ ἐχαρίσατο αὐτῷ τὸ ὄνομα
and bestowed on Him c the name
τὸ ὑπὲρ πᾶν ὄνομα,
which is above every name,
ἵνα ἐν τῷ ὀνόματι Ἰησοῦ πᾶν γόνυ κάμψῃ ἐπουρανίων καὶ ἐπιγείων καὶ καταχθονίων
so that at the name of Jesus a every knee will bow, of b those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
καὶ πᾶσα γλῶσσα ἐξομολογήσηται
and that every tongue will confess
ὅτι κύριος Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς εἰς δόξαν θεοῦ πατρός.
that Jesus Christ is a Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
